    Hare Krishna cafe: Vegetarian/vegan , cafe

    by Hildeal Updated Jul 9, 2014

    This is a very nice little place five minutes from Majorstua. It's cheaper than average. The menu is vegetarian/vegan. I only ate potetakava, potatoes fried in Oil. It was too much oil for me, but I only paid 5NK for each potato kava, and that's cheap according to Norwegian standards. I also tried one of the vegetable dish, and even though I´m not a big fan of califlower but it tasted ok .I also overheard customers saying they really loved the food there.

    Hilde's allergy guide

    by Hildeal Updated Jun 20, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    travelling in a foreign country with food restrictions is challenging .iI'm allergic to dairy products, so I have to think about where and what to eat at all times. So here I will share some experiences from myself and other people with diet restrictions.

    I wouldn't say Norway is the best country when it comes to allergy food ,USA and Sweden are better than us, but keep in mind that we are a small country and we are improving- little by little.

    if you're allergic to dairy the main word to look for is "Melk," unless the ingredient list is in English. In MC Donald’s the ordinary hamburgers are without milk, the same for the french fries, but not chicken mc nuggets. There´s usually an allergy list on the wall.

    On M.C. Donald’s you can also order an hamburger without gluten if you have coeliac disease, it takes some more time and is a bit more expensive.

    When you're in a big food store look for soy milk oat milk or rice milk there instead of the small health shop stores. it's usually a lot more cheaper to buy special food in big food stores like Meny, Maxi, ultra and Ica.I would recommend Rema 1000, you get 30% discount.

    Some words to look for to avoid gluten is: hvete, rug, bygg, havre, spelt

    The Bakery "godt brød" sells bread without gluten that tastes delicious. You' can also find gluten free wheat pastry in the big grocery stores, usually frozen, or you can invest in an bread baker ma-chine
    -
    In most of the cafe places they have soy milk as an alternative to normal milk. But not at Peppe’s, dolly dimple’s and Egon. but on these restaurants, they offer pizza and hamburgers without gluten.

    Many restaurants, cafes in Oslo are not that educated about different allergies and their staff don't know that butter usually contains milk. So to be on the safe side you should have an allergy card with you that explains in English and/ or Norwegian what this allergy means. Another option is to speak with the chef yourself.

    if you want to buy products from the health food store and need some help you should stay out of the shops in Oslo City and Byporten. In general they´ don´t offer good service. Try the health food store in Gunerius shopping mall, close to Oslo city
    or the Health food store in Majorstua, close to the metro station.

    if you´re on a low carb diet and need to bake with alternative flour, buy your flour and other groceries at the stores run by foreign owner. It´s just _so_ much cheaper.

    Tullins cafe: visit the girl next door cafe

    by Hildeal Written Jun 14, 2014

    Tullins Cafe is something between a cafe and a restaurant.
    there is really not an interesting atmosphere at Tullin`s. it´s not a particulary nice play to hangout, but they serve big meals for an reasonable price. I ordered an omlette, and I received omelette with bread and salat, and when I left I was satisfied.

    so if you just want to eat out, and you prefer the cafe atmosphere, come to Tullins!

    Favorite Dish: Tullins has as fare as I know thre different omelettes with bread and salat.

    Deli de Luca: Cheap food

    by Jim_Eliason Updated Dec 7, 2013

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It's very tough to find reasonable priced food in Oslo. Most meals are $20-30 USD, so locals eat from convenience stores a lot. Another less expensive option is Deli De Luca, a chain found throughout Oslo and featuring fast food ( hot dogs, etc) plus pastas for a reasonable price.

    Jensens Biffhuss: The Steak House

    by mirchica Written May 28, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The restaurant was offering delicious food but nothing typical Norwegian. It was a steak house so all we ate different steaks. I was really amazed by the prices, actually not exactly in this restaurant but in general in the country. A meal for 5 with a bottle of wine, few beers and 3 starters costed about 450-500 EUR.
    I was also surprised by the fact that the waitress didn't know Norwegian but only English (she was from Czech Republic) so I found out for real that in Norway they accept English almost as an official 2-d language.

    Xich Lo: Excellent Vietnamese Restaurant

    by Gili_S Written Mar 16, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A choice for a dinner in Oslo is not usually easy, lots of expensive options ;-) but then when notice there is this nice Vietnamese place the decision making was fast, I think we even called to reserve a table because it was Friday and we wanted to be sure that we can eat where we want.
    The restaurant itself located in this building complex with department store (image 1), not easy to find exactly how to get it but we asked. The setting itself was very modern and cosy, thankfully no any kitschy decoration or music and then was the time to look at the menu. Obviously Saigon (export) beer (image 2) was a natural choice as I haven’t had that one since my visit to Vietnam couple of year back. The food choice was deferent story, this was not a Pho street stand but well dining restaurant, so we did select some soup for starter and my meat for main dish (image 3) was delicious and rich in flavour and taste.

    Grünerløkka Brygghus: Not a brewpub!

    by bonio Written Mar 7, 2012

    Lovely pub, not actually a brewery as we suspected by the name, but with a great selection of Norwegian (and other) beers.
    Managed to try several and enjoyed a large and tasty ploughmans lunch.
    Comfortable and friendly - good place to visit.

    Amundsen Bryggeri & Spiseri: Brewpub

    by bonio Written Mar 7, 2012

    Lunch stop for us in this city centre brewpub. Good soup for us both and a decent house brewed pale ale to go with it.
    Think another visit is on the cards when we revisit Oslo, enjoyed our short visit.

    Jewel of india Restaurant: Good Indian food near Aker Brygge

    by Saagar Written Nov 12, 2011

    This restuarant in a residential area near Aker Brygge, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the American Embassy (without you being hassled), is a good choice for quality Indian food away from pricy Aker brygge restaurants and yet in the vicinity. Good for business dinners, absolutely.
    An extensive Indian menu, among the best and widest selections in Oslo. Based in a basement locale, with separate niches group tables, it is both able to accommodate larger groups and to provide some privacy for the romantic. The tables are not as small as many Indian restaurants want them - there is space here.

    Favorite Dish: Good north Indian and mughlai food. But there are also south Indian dishes that friends spoke highly of when we were there.

    Mat & Mer: Mat &Mer

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I don't know what category to put this place in. They have coffee, wine dinner, dessert. It's a very cozy and relaxed place, and it does not look like a restaurant. They're sort of everything place...the staff also prepare the food in the kitchen which is placed in the middle of the restaurant. They also have a fire-place.

    You should check out their web page

    Nazar Café: Turkish food at Nazar Café

    by Hildeal Updated Oct 17, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This Cafe is open from 11-24 all days. I wonder if the waitresses have any time of, or maybe they're working all day

    Nazar has a Turkish menu. I have only tasted some of the food, and I enjoyed it. It's possible to buy food to go, and you can also just order a vine, beer or a coffee latte. Even though Oslo is expensive, the food is actually cheaper than many other places.

    The place has a playground for children and there are many parents there. There's a computer room with access to the internet some hours every day. It's free but you need a card in order to use it. You can also sit outside the cafe and the waitress will come to your table. Sometimes there are just too many kids and I want to eat outside.

    Sometimes I wish the waitresses could smile some mores, but you don't have to wait to long for your food to be served

    It’s close to “Mat&Mer, another café, restaurant listed.

    Sometimes I wish the waitresses could smile some mores, but you don't have to wait to long for your food to be served.

    Favorite Dish: Her is their homepage, unfortunately only in Norwegian, but maybe you'll understand it.

    Cafe Billabong: Cafe Billabong

    by Hildeal Updated Oct 17, 2011

    Didn’t eat here, only drinking coffee. The food is a bit cheaper than the average if you choose small dishes. If you're on your way to the cinema, this is the place to grab a bite
    I was not impressed with their service. Some of the waiters were really arrogant and argumentative. I didn't feel very welcome in this place. I don't feel like going back there

    Mucho Mas: Good Authentic Mexican

    by DSwede Written Jul 30, 2011

    Having worked up a good appetite, we all were looking forward to dinner time. When we spotted a Mexican restaurant, we needed no consensus, the decision was without speaking a word.

    The staff was very helpful and our server had a good sense of humor. They spoke English fluently, which was good because the menus are only available in Norwegian.

    There are tables for couples up to groups of six. The restaurant gets a little cozy when all tables are full, but thankfully the noise is not too much.

    Favorite Dish: Looking over all the other tables, all dishes looked delicious and relatively large in portion. The tacos and nachos were good.

    They have vegetarian options of all dishes if you choose.

    Mucho Mas
