Lunch Buffet at a price of 99 NOK (€ 10.70) every Monday and Thursday

We decided to test the place out on a Monday, since then they offered a buffet at a very low price of just 99 NOK. This made it possible for us to try out different types of pizza types in their categories of Red Pizzas and White Pizzas. Here we got many variants to try out and we enjoyed the taste of everyone of them. The thin crust is delicious with the various types of toppings were really great and especially nice regarding the price. If this new place keeps up with having Pizza buffet offering like this on certain days in a week. This will for sure give them new and even more customers with happier faces when they leave. This area of Oslo where most of the restaurants sells Indian and Turkish food, it’s good and refreshing to see a new pizza place doing the right moves so that they will be remembered in the future. Peoples communication about positive experiences to others is the best marketing strategy that you as a new opened restaurant can get. Once people starts to talk about your new place, others will come and those telling about you will return also. Clever!

All of the pictures were taken during daytime, so not so busy. However, we walk by often and the place seems to get more and more popular. It seems that these owners have chosen the right Oslo area to start at. This area of Oslo is one of the areas where you see most foreigners from Asia and Africa. So, there are many kebab and indian food places in the area which sells cheap food. It is really nice to see that this restaurant gives something new to the area and is still affordable. The competition in the area is tough, but there are too few pizza places at Grønland in Oslo. So, it is for  needed. It seems for us that this area in Oslo is starting to get various of restaurants now. So, do visit our Oslo.Distrita.Com website. We will continue giving you guides and we hope that you support the newcomers in Oslo so that they survive.
