First Review by Mirja Love RAW

Nice food! - Edit

I have eaten here I. My last 2 trips to Oslo. Each time I was very happy. They have great salads, plates and burger ( with gluten free bread as option which I tried yesterday). Great atmosphere and cozy. I think this restaurant and Nordvegan are my favorites in Oslo!

Pros: tasty food, raw food and great atmosphere

Cons: they say the close at 10pm but the kitchen closes

Just wow!! - Edit

Went there for lunch, and OMG, it was so good! I had a chef's special 'meat' balls which was a very generous size meal and then a kale ginger smoothie and their special rawreo cheesecake - it was the best raw cheesecake I had so far! They have beautiful seating inside and outside too.
So saddened by the fact I don't live in Oslo full time!!

Pros: amazing raw treats, delicious food, beautiful surroundings

Excellent - Edit

Shared the "shared dish" with a friend - and it was heavenly. Lots of different dishes, not just delicious, but also a wonderful sight. A bit expensive, but this is Norway after all, restaurants are more expensive than elsewhere in Europe. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, nice view towards greenery.

Pros: VERY good food, nice atmoshere, friendly staff

Cons: not exactly cheap

The best vegan restaurant we've been in! - Edit

My boyfriend and I stayed in Oslo for 6 days and during these six days we went there 3 times! Everytime, we ordered one of the burgers and had a raw cake or brownie afterwards. Their food is really really delicious and you get plenty (important point for my boyfriend). It is the nr. one thing I recommend people going to oslo :)

My favorite café/restaurant in Oslo - Edit

I only stayed a week in Norway but it was enough to fall in love with this café ! The place is magnificent, the chairs are very comfortable, there are lots of books to flip through... We can spend hours there without being bored a single second :) the waiters are adorable, smiling and kind.
To speak about the food and drinks, there is a rather impressive choice. It's difficult not to hesitate, because everything is delicious ! We loved everything we tasted, it was stunning.

(There is also a little vegan grocery store, which is nice !)

Pros: Stunning food, Smiling waiters, Decoration and atmosphere

tasty food in nice atmosphere - Edit

the main points:
*nice atmosphere
*black bean burger (appr. 20€, with few (sweet) potatoes and cabbage salad on the side) was tasty
*chocolate cake (not raw, appr. 4€) was average
there would have been also raw cakes, but they would have been more expensive (appr. 8€). From a mid-European point of view, this place is in general more expensive, but for Oslo/Norwegian-standards I assume it is normal. In any case it is nice to support an all-vegan place, and the food seemed quite healthy, so I would come here again as well as recommending going there to others :)

Pros: tasty, atmosphere, all-vegan with raw options

Cons: bit expensive, but normal for Norwegian standards, (non-raw) cake was average

Nice atmosphere and yummy food - Edit

I struggled to find this place (it is actually inside the DOGA building) but I was so glad I persevered! The burger I had was nice and very filling and the chocolate mint shake was amazing. The prices are reasonable for Oslo and the staff speak good English.

Pros: Amazing non-dairy milkshakes, Nice atmosphere

Cons: Location is difficult to find

Big portions Great atmosphere - Edit

We went with 3 persons after a big climbing session and were really hungr. Thought about taking the vegan tappas and something else but the girl recommended to try with the tappas first. We had some delicious milkshake on the side and had a piece of cake afterwards and each of us was super stuffed! It was so delicious, my two friends are meat eaters and they just loved the food so much.

Pros: Lager portions, Incredibly tasty!, Honest and friendly staff

Brilliant - Edit

I had the buckwheat burger and my husband had the large salad bowl. Quite pricey but that is to be expected in Oslo. Portions are generous and food is nutritious and tasty. The restaurant also uses 50% organic food and is in the process of working to get this number higher.

Also the milkshakes are delicious!

Pros: Delicious, Varied menu

Cons: Service slightly slow

Worth hunting out. Really good menu and a lovely atmosphere. The food was yummy yummy yummy! Quite chilled venue. I had the black bean burger with some yummy extras and a veg juice.

I loved it! - Edit

I went there during my trip in Norway and I had the mushroom burger. OHMY, super tasty, the gluten-free focaccia bread was really awesome! the staff is super nice and helpful, everybody speaks perfect english. There is a lovely little food store inside where you can buy vegan organic stuff. You can seat in the veranda with a nice view and enjoy your food :)

Great vegan restaurant - Edit

A great place for vegan food, especially if you love healthy options, gluten-free, organic and so on. Has both pricy and cheaper options, but is more on the expensive side because of fresh and organic ingredients. Great staff and a nice place to sit down for a meal.

Pros: Great variety, Healthy options, Good atmosphere

Cons: A bit pricy

Good food but the staff are a bit.. - Edit

I have been there once before half a year ago and the service was so-so, so I didn't have too high expectation this time. But still I was disappointed.
We came in the evening and right after we had sat down and were looking at the menus the same waiter who seated us came and was about to serve us two burgers we didn't order (it was for the table next to us but honestly, there were only four tables in the entire restaurant that were in use)

We were told that they are not doing the funky fresh plates anymore (the only dish where you can get falafels), but we asked to get a couple falafels on the side since we saw that they had them on display in the counter. At this time it would be nice if we were told that they were going to charge us extra for it :)

We ordered two buckwheat burgers and were surprised to see that there was no bread?? I went to ask the waitress what had happened and she told us they were out of bread... It would have been nice if she told her that when we were ordering instead of after. We got some hummus and two "puncheboller" to make up for it but that was not until after I had to ask why our dish did not have one of the main components...

The food was good though, interesting use of spices and good with both sweet potato and normal potato wedges on the side. The menu could have been bigger, there were two burgers and a soup to choose from of the main dishes (and the funky fresh plate, but they were not doing that anymore when we came in. If they only do it until a certain time every day then maybe write it on the menu?).

Anyways the food was good, but the service wasn't much to brag about. The waiters seemed like they had no interest in us being there and also came and told us "we are closed now" while we were eating, five minutes before they actually closing. Wouldn't go again.

(tips for owners: give your staff a proper teaching in how to serve well and how to smile :) )

Cons: bad service, our dish came out incomplete, they didnt serve all the food on the menu

delicious! - Edit

My first food experience in Oslo was great! I had a burger as did my partner. The plates were filling. I had the best chocolate milkshake I've ever had. Staff were friendly and accommodating to my non existent Norwegian! I also had a piece of cheesecake and that was the best tasting cheesecake ever.

Pros: location, cheesecake

Vegan heaven (haven) - Edit

I have been here a few times and I loved everything about it. Once I came on a weekday and just took a coffee and watched the river flow by (beauiful park/river view) in a quiet location. The second time I went for lunch on a Sunday. Pretty full of young vegans, some sort of convention? The staff is inspired and knowledgeable, they have their own cook book etc. Funky vegan dishes, good choice in coffee drinks, espresso based and also the bullet proof variety , and probably herbal varieties too. Nothing boring about this vibrant place, good for non-vegans too for your meat free Monday or just a coffee and a cake.

Vegan Wonderland - Edit

This place is the bomb. Awesome modern atmosphere and on-point burgers, juices, and nice-cream shakes. Best place I've eaten on our three week Norway trip. The staff is cool, friendly, and all around this place is 100% worth a visit!!

Pros: burger is sooo good, atmosphere is modern, bright and comfy, staff is cool!

Cons: none!

Great brugers - Edit

Situated in a very stylish setting, Funky Fresh offered some great options for a small menu. The burgers were tasty and came with some gourmet sides like pickled onions and kimchi. The milkshakes were good but used frozen banana as the base.

Pros: Friendly service, Fast service, Veg!

Hands down, the best - Edit

I ate lunch here with a friend. It's definitely Oslo's best healthy, vegan restaurant. I had the 'Fresh Plate' with their 'raw (green) juice' and he had the 'Burger' with their 'chocolate milk shake' - everything was tasty. We even took away some of their raw balls for desert - yummy!

They are %100 vegan with a handful of raw options. On one of their boards they say they use %50 organic ingredients which isn't too bad considering the stat above say that Norway eats/buys only %5 organic.

Best Vegan Option in Oslo - Edit

While in Oslo I ended up going to Funky Fresh twice! The tofu bacon sandwich was fantastic, and the veggie burger was unique to others I've had. I love that they have several raw and gluten-free options as well. I had two different raw desserts and they were some of the best I've ever had. I was sad that I was not in town while they had the Tapas option so that I could sample more of their food (only after 5pm on certain days).

Pros: Friendly staff, Amazing food, Raw & Gluten-free options

Cons: Dark lighting

Really lovely. - Edit

Wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff. Delicious food and a good variety on menu. We had the two "burger" options and they were great. Large portions and great desserts too.

It was on the pricey side but it's Norway so that's a given.

Funky Fresh Food have finally nailed it! - Edit

To put into context I have been trying out Funky Fresh Foods since their earlier catering days. In the past I was very disapointed with the raw food that they served, but today this is not the case anymore. I was a bit hesitant to try their new place due to past experienced but I was blown away by the improved quality of taste, style and design of their food.

Perfect example of healthy dishes that also taste very good. I tried the buckwheat burger, with potatoes and aioli. Decent burger, good consistency, but the potatoes and aioli left the best impression. The cook was very friendly and even gave us some complimentary cold yoghurt like drinks.

I think it is very positive that through out the years Funky Fresh has expanded to include warm meals too. The stuff they offer is diverse and quality food on average. The place can compete with the good vegan restaurants abroad. Recomend anyone who travels to Oslo to give the place a try.

I am a fan now
