No longer in Oslo

Sorry but this place is no longer in Oslo, but they are still in Sandvika :)
By the way I heard from many vegans that the staff is not always the best, there is a weighter who has for several times discussed the honey issue with an agressive tone.

Great food, great environment and nice staff! Unpretentious and relaxed, in a very warm and inviting atmosphere. Sandvika is very close to Oslo, so just take the train or a bus, and you're there.
And extra kudos for being the only real veg restaurant in this area (not just a cafe or cantine)! I hope Oslo and it's surrounding areas soon catch up with our Nordic neighbours, we are lagging behind ehrn it comes to creating new places for vegans and vegetarians. Thank you Helt Ra for being there for us.

Pros: Great food, Healthy food, Nice place

The restaurant is located in a very nice old wooden building and it is pleasantly decorated with art. The people are nice and the food is very good - if you like it raw, which I do.
The toilet downstairs is well worth a visit, I love the decoration. The restaurant has got a very pleasant and clean atmosphere and I have been back several times.

Pros: Good food, Healthy food, You feel great after a meal
Cons: They do not change the menue often.
