Apart from central location, nothing special about this chain bar/restaurant. Limited food choice.Lots of TV screens to watch sports programmes.

Not my best visit to a TGI. seemed like the staff used more time visiting with friends than serving. First of all it took more than 5 minutes to get a order for drinks (there were almost no guest's at the restaurant at the time) After getting my drink it took 20 minutes before they came back to get my...

This restaurant is in the main Street Karl Johan, close to the parlement building. It is an quite big restaurant. They serve mainly burghers. The burgher meal is average but the barbeque sauce is good. The price here is average around 21 euros for a burgher plate. The chocolate smoothi is good but the meals are average. The service here...

On first night in Oslo, last stop of Norway tour, we tried this one of the chain. Food had stopped being served but a very lively bar with great South American style music got the place rocking. A great lively late bar !

First visited TGIF in Calfornia in 1983 when it was exciting and buzzing. Now its turned into a very boring world-wide franchise with no excitement whatsoever. My wife and I had a very standard TGIF meal here one September evening and were not in any way surprised by the outcome. We hadn't been into a TGIF for some time and... More

Oh my gosh. Besides the view of the park and fountain, this place really has no value. Anyone giving this place more then 2 stars either cannot taste food, or really doesn't care about it being of any quality. As an American I do not frequent TGI fridays but with good reason. I already knew it was going to be... More

When you think of TGI's you think of amazing american diner food. We were a little bit disappointed with our meal in Oslo. We didn't feel like we were given good service, with the bar staff sitting down eating and drinking themselves. The food was average and not as good as I've had at other TGI's in other cities around... More

Expensive for what you're getting, one adult and two teenage girls cost me a little over 1200,- NOK without desert. I had a burger, kids had some kind of chicken fingers. Food was OK but regret dining there. Staff was friendly, long wait for the food unfortunately. Decent interior and relatively clean.

Thank Kjell M
