Torggata 23
Torggata is the place for having a quick snack and Bari is the place for having a pizza in Torggata. The pizza is tasty and cheap, and Bari is an inviting place. Yummy!

Torggata 8
Ma´Raja offers Indian food. Nothing special in that, except their exceptionally cheap lunch special. Ma´Raja has an all lunch buffet until 15:00 each day, starting at budget friendly 79 NOK.

Curry & Ketchup
{ Majorstuen }
Kirkeveien 51
Charming Indian restaurant with a casual atmosphere, nearby the Vigelandspark. Tasty meals for about 120 NOK. The interior is remniscant of an Indian shop with ricebags, spice and tin cans. The quality of both food and prices reap rewards for Curry & Ketchup – the place is crowded, especially by students.

Rice bowl
{ Downtown }
Youngsgate 4
Really good thai-food in the city center, nearby Youngstorget. Only 54 seats so make sure to be there early! Very budget friendly with main dishes from about 90 NOK .

Café Stolen
{ Grünerløkka }
Helgesensgate 32
Simple and nice, with a good atmosphere – suitable for dinner, as well as a beer with friends.

Illegal burger
{ Downtown }
Møllergata 23
This is said to be the best burgers in town. Try the Cheese Royale, with potatoes on the side, mmmm! You can get a burger in most kebab shops around, but Illegal specializes in burgers and they do it good! Often very crowded.

Pizza Pancetta
{ Majorstuen }
Kirkeveien 69
For a pizza at this price this is THE best pizza! These guys started up with one store in the most posh of areas (Frogner), quickly won everyone over, and are now expanding with branches all over town. Try this one!

Restaurant Dehli Tandoori
{ Downtown }
Maridalsveien 4
A small indian restaurant which is said to have the best indian food in town. They are located a 10 minute walk from downtown Oslo. Nice staff and reasonable prices at around 150 kroner for a main meal.

Øvre vollgate 13
Really a piece of Thailand in the middle of Oslo. Surrounded by a jungle, walking on bambus floor past “tux” taxis” and small “stalls” to sit in – these guys imported tons of interior, and everything you see is authentic. The food is great as well. Nice staff, great prices – and a surprise thunder storm during your meal.
