Easy restaurant, but almost always full. It is for sure not for a romantic dinner, but if you want to eat kind of Thai food, then you can go there. The portions are big and prices rather low for Oslo. They offer even take away.

Repeated twice while in oslo. Great thai flavours, similar to the originals you find in thailand. The service is super joyful and kind. If i go back to oslo sure i will repeat

The food at this place is very good at a decent price. My only issue is the way is served and the restaurant. Does need a upgrade.

The service...not even the basics, not even a smile. The food was on the same average level as well. We had the panang curry beef and green curry chicken soup. They definitely tasted like Thailand, but that is all the good about them. The panang...More

You get what you pay for, good large portions. Ask for fresh chilies on the side as if you ask for spicy you will be needing a lot of water.

Walked in by coincidence on a snowy evening. Numerous signs, only thing really odd in this place, indicate that you have to wait for waiter to allocate free seating to you. Despite the strange first impression, this did not only work well, but I was...More

Enjoy some good food in Oslo in a simple, often packed restaurant. The soups are tasty. Affordable prices 👍

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.
