Had lunch here on my own this Friday. No reservation needed to get a table, at least not for lunch. Had the vegetarian dish. Tasted very nice, came with a large bowl of rice on the side. A lot of value for money. Service excellent. I'll be back.

The plan was dinner out in Oslo to impress some foreign colleagues, and Dinner seemed to be the best place to do this. Noise, sound and music are at a level that conversation can go as normal without any particular interference. Dinner delivering a service and quality that few restaurants in the same price range can compete with, although it... More

I had heard so many positive comments for a couple of years, and my expectations were probably too high. They were not fulfilled. The crew is missing passion for their customers, there were not much friendliness nor service to find. We had booked a table well in advance and preordered their 4 course set menu. Why then give me two... More

The interior of the restaurant was dark and stylish with lots of black upholstery and dark wood. The menu was printed on glossy shiny silver paper and almost everyone inside was wearing black or grey. I felt rather out of place in my bright red lumberjack shirt. The staff, despite a reputation for being rude, where very helpful. And the... More

I was stunned by the amazing Asian food and innovative cocktail menu when visiting Dinner for the first time last week. The staff was polite and very service minded, the pricing better than expected and the atmosphere was relaxed. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to everyone, and it's hereby my new favourite restaurant in Oslo.

This Asian restaurant with Sichuan flavors is still very popular and that's a good reason for that. A good mix of starters and dim sum. Followed by hotpot choices of both seafood and meat. Try the Pang pang beef, lovely. Reservation is recommended.

This is a very popular restaurant, you most of the days need to book a table in advance to avoid waiting for a long time. The staff was very service minded and smiling, the restaurant had a very nice Asian style and feel, and the food was excellent! They have a big menu, in all price ranges, and they have... 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.
