Had the red curry with chicken. The servings are big, the flavors are authentic and the price is very reasonable. One of my go-to places for lunch in this area.

Best thai food in Oslo, and I have been here for at least 5 times. Try the Fried Rice with Prawn, Pad Thai and their Thai Ice Coffee! You will come back for their food, trust me. Their staffs are friendly and service is great!

Because it was the only thing that didn't try to light up my face burning all around my mouth. The meal was undoubtedly good. Just a little bit spicy. Not too much, indeed. I was only dying. The plastic, I mean, the rice ball was much better than what I'm saying (I trusted my dear friend before writing this, who... More

Ok food to a reasonable price, but still it lacks something. Good soup, but the rest are just average asian food when it comes to taste, and you don't get even beer to the foodl.

Rice Bowl does not have the best food in town, you don't get any alcohol, you might have to wait to get a table and the tables and seating is simple. Yet, all of this doesn't really matter that much, as the reason for visiting simply is to eat good food at a reasonable price at an actual restaurant. It... More

The food is good and the price is ok. But the price to do small adjustments on the dish is not ok. To take away one thing (pinapple) and add an other instead (brokoli) they do not do for free. They have a quite high add on for that. For me that is not service, but the place is often... More

Located near to central. We had to line up during the peak hours as the restaurant was crowded. The food is fantastic and really up to the expectation. Even during the peak hours but the service is fast and reliable. Once you have tried you will come again.

We had dinner there and it was really good food. We needed to wait around 15 minutes to be seated. The place was crowded but the service was very friendly and supportive. Food was really in big portion and delicious. Really recommend this place if you fancy Thai food.

Description
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.
