Food is fine and menu contains many options. Not too many seats but I had luck twice to find empty table. You can order food and take it away as well. Try sweet and sour chicken with rice.

Cute little restaurant serving Thai food. Portion are big enough to feed the elephant but believe me very tasty. Prices very reasonable (two pad Thai 320NOK). The restaurant is always full which is enough recommendation.

Decent Thai food--fresh ingredients, plentiful portions. A bit pricy by my standards, but so is everything in Oslo, and this is on the cheaper end of the spectrum. The food isn't as spicy as I'm used to Thai food being, but I believe that's because...More

Only if you have a yearning for Thai food, this place offers decent Thai food. Taste wise quite authentic and price wise in line with most other restaurants. In Norway, lunch meals can be a good deal as some restaurants offer discounts on certain items...More

This was a great place to eat because it offered delicious Thai food at an affordable price (150 NOK to 160 NOK). In the summer when it was hit outside, I felt really good to be inside this restaurant because the AC worked really well....More

Rice Bowl is a small, informal Thai café located by the square Youngstorget. Thai artifacts and bamboo on the walls gives the café an oriental feel to it. Sometimes they also play Thai music. At Rice Bowl you can choose between a selection of Asian dishes, mainly Thai noodle dishes. This is a popular place, so you may have to wait a few minutes to get a table. Once you've ordered, the food usually arrives quickly, and you can get a good portion at a cheap price.
