I have been here 8/9 times for different occasions. They deliver the high food and service quality each time. Well done.

I always love coming here, but this time I was a bit disappointed. The table wasn't ready when we got there, the waitress was in a very bad mood, spilling wine all over the table. She really didn't pay much attention, and didn't know anything about the wine we had ordered. But the food was good, as usual.

We tried Dinner (early Oct 2014) for a change as we were having really good local seafood for the pass week in our Scandinavian trip. It was recommended by our hotel. Our review is based on the fact that we are foodies from Singapore- so we know Chinese food. In general the food is good but not great and would... More

Excellent asian restaurant. We had a very good crispy duck and a bottle of Sainte-Radegonde 2010 (french red wine). I noticed an interesting selection of wine in the meny. The service was nice and efficient. The decor is classy and yet simple. Fortunately the crispy duck was enough for our appetites cause the table reservation was for two hours which... More

Eat in this restaurant last night on the recommendation from quite a few people. When we arrived it was obvious why you have to book as it's a very popular place but we were greeted at the front desk and shown to the bar as we were slightly early but after a few moments we were shown to our table...

The atmosphere and decor are very classy. The food is on a par of not slightly better then the mahayana next door. You could tell it was prepared with fresh ingredients and cooked with skill. The schezuan soup was very nice and the pang pang beef was lovely. Don't forget to book as it's always very busy!

his very central located hotel near National theatre is really a recommendation. There is a lot of choice from the menu, we had the signature menu, with two appetizers, a middle course, a main course and a very big dessert (different assortment) The food is delicious and the service is perfect.

There are not to many front runners in Oslo for Asian food. Dinner is one of the top 3 on my list in Oslo. Specializing in Chinese Cuisine. The service is great, the location is fantastic, the settings are very cozy and fancy, the food is amazing, and the price is cheap. My favorites are the seafood dishes and the... More

Description
Dinner Restaurant has served food from our Szechuan and Cantonese kitchen in the heart of Oslo since 1989 and are proud to continue offering our guests an exciting journey through Chinese food culture. Traditionally, the Chinese meal consists of many different dishes that are shared between guests at the table in order to create a more social dynamic around the meal time. Our menu is structured in such a way that this style of eating is possible with us. Please ask your waiter if you would like to know more about the dishes and produce used. We would also like to share that all of Dim Sum is made here in the restaurant and the Mango Pudding is still made by the same cook that made it back in 1989.
