“Eat as much as you want for less than 10 euros!” That offer is not ordinary in an expensive city as Oslo, but a seldom time a cheap place is found. So our question is Can the food be good?
It is easy to catch the restaurant as it is located next to the tram, and they have big posters on the entire glass window, so nobody can really miss their offers. We were a bit sceptical, as zero place is that cheap in the capital, neither outside of the city of Oslo… But we haven’t much money, and decide to give them a chance.
There’s just one waiter there. And when we enter, there’s just one family eating there. The waiter is friendly. He is not Norwegian. I guess he is from Pakistan, and he speaks just a little bit Norwegian, but that’s ok. We understand what we need. They don’t accept credit card. This is quiet unique in Norway, as 99% of all shops and restaurants accept credit card without fees, even for small transactions. But Buffet Food for 69 NOK (10 euros), we are more than willing going to the ATM and take out money. The waiter even offers us to eat first, and pay afterwards, and that’s generous.
He gives us 10 options. We both decide to go for the chicken curry. It looks really good. We get a generous portion of rice, a bit of salad, and salsa. It’s tasty, and nothing to complain about for that price. They have even offer some local drinks, but we have had a long day, and need a bottle of something, and then nothing is easier than a Coke. A 0,5 litre plastic bottle of Coke costs 29NOK (which is average in restaurants and kiosks, app 3,50 euros)
We get windows spots. One portion is sufficient if you are not extremely hungry, but we even went once more, and the waiter was still very friendly and gave us what we wanted.
This is a good place if your budget is tight and you don’t want to spend too much money on eating out in Oslo. There are so much else you can spend your money on, and one cheap lunch or dinner can never be wrong – when the taste still is acceptable.
The food is so much more healthy than the burger chains, and this is even more valuable. We will definitely come back.
