Taste of China has existed as perhaps the best dim sum restaurant in Oslo for several years, but has now moved to larger and more modern premises near Oslo City Hall. The service is still good and nice.
There is an abundant selection of light dishes, but also more traditional main courses. Most dumpling variations are with pork or scampi, but you also get some vegetarian versions, and some more special small dishes. Here is an opportunity to try out flavors from the Canton of China. Reddish pudding with pork and dried shrimp was an exciting and abundant dim sum, light in taste, soft and good to dip in a spicy sauce. Fried gluten-rice muffins filled with pork and dried shrimp were like big eggs, with a lot of air but taste in the fill. Fried tofu with sauce of black beans was a typical vegetarian version. The flavors are mild as in most of the dim sum, but you can dip in good and strong sauces. Portions are usually not too small, so two dishes will often be enough.

On my first ever visit to Oslo headed to this restaurant for lunch. Food was delicious although ordered a little too much. Decor and service very good. Only dropped 1 point as I thought it was a little overpriced even for Oslo standards

We went there for lunch (2 adults). Since we were quite hungry, we each got 3 sets of dumplings each. That turned out to be a bit too much :) Nevertheless, the dumpling were the best I ever had! I especially recommend the pork-shrimp-peanut ones.

Great selection of dumplings and other dimsum. The service was quick and the dishes were nice and hot, very suitable in winter. We would have liked to see some more side dishes on the menu, however, espeically vegetable dishes.
I think a vegetarian would be able to eat here, but I wouldn't propose it for vegetarian friends.
