Oslo, more often than not, is found near the top of the list; the most expensive city in the world. This should, however, not keep you from a visit. There are ways of getting around the high prices. Food will cause a significant dent in your budget, especially when eating out. The restaurant scene is certainly not lacking in quality, with several international alternatives and kitchens of high renown. Any food lover should plot in a visit to one of the Michelin starred restaurants, like Maaemo, a new restaurant that did the feat of jumped directly to two stars. A night out in a Michelin star restaurant is, however, no budget option. This is why we have put together this guide for budget dining in Oslo. One option is to enjoy take-away in one of the numerous, nice parks in the city.
Sushi in Oslo
Sushi is still a relatively new trend in Oslo, albeit a rapidly rising one. However, this does not mean that the quality and variety of sushi restaurants is not up to standard. On the contrary, there are several restaurants serving quality sushi.
Sato Japanese Dining, Frognerveien 10. Sato has an interesting variety of Japanese dishes, and keep their prices on a reasonable level.
Art of Sushi, Elisenbergveien 19. Aesthetically pleasing, as well as tasty, sushi.
Alex Sushi, Cort Adelers gate 2 . This is a local favorite and regularly figures on best sushi in town lists.
Top Budget Restaurants in Oslo
Ylajali, St. Olavsplass 2. Innovative kitchen with Mediterranean touches. It is especially recommended to include a wine-package, you will get wine that accompanies every plate perfectly to a price that is very relatively reasonable, after Norwegian standards.
Arakataka, Mariboes gate 7. The name is hard to remember, the food is not. Mediterranean inspired kitchen that delivers probably the best quality for price ratio of all Oslo restaurants.
Palace Bar & Grill, Solligata 2. Quite possibly the first real rock & roll restaurant in town. The guys at Palace were, at one time, equally known for their hijinks when presenting their foot as for what was on the plate. The vibe is still informal, but the food really takes center stage!
