We went to this very busy restaurant in the expectation of normal good Vietnamese food which we eat a lot. Pricewise we paid 600 krone for starter and main each. The place was packed. Maybe due to the lower Oslo price because the food was...More

This spot has been around for ages, and we keep coming back. Go for the great, cheap, abundant and authentic vietnamese food and be prepared to ignore the run-down premises and so-so service. Payment by the counter.
