We were 20 people celebrating the day of love. Several are vegetarians but the majority meat eaters. 3 course meal with amazingly tasty dishes for all of us. The angler must be mentioned as an enthusiastic and fantastic man who made the laughter sit loose....More

Great find! We had an excellent dinner: duck breast, chicken satay. Presentations were outstanding, and food was absolutely delicious. We have visited Vietnam, and dishes at Xich Lo were every bit as good!

We had been through a week tour of Scandinavia dutifully eating Nordic food, which we like a lot but wanted a change of pace. Somehow I found this restaurant searching on line. What a surprise. It was phenomenal. I had the superb, succulent duck. My...More

It is right at city center and on the main pedestrian street. We had the tasting menu with duck, and another main with venison. Both great.

I went here with my colleagues on a Thursday afternoon. Although the food was nice we had to wait for approx an hour before we had our main course. Also they never came and checked if we wanted more to drink.

One of our favorite restaurants in Oslo. They serve a number of exquisite smaller dishes (tasting menu) and some great main dishes.

Pay a visit to Xích Lô (pron. cyklo) for a taste from a little Further East. This is a unique treasure of a Vietnamese restaurant, now occupying new premises on Karl Johans gate 23 B on the first floor of the new department store in Egertorget square. Delicately exotic with light and airy interior and a mouth-watering menu where the food is reasonably priced and completely authentic. Aromatic and spicy without being too hot, the dishes are served as small pieces of art on the plate. Enjoy your trip Further East!
