Not great - Edit

This place gets a lot of praise, but personally I was not impressed. The food is not great, and too expensive for the portion sizes and also quality of ingredients (the pitas we got were a store bought variety etc) and I felt like I could have made something better at home.
That being said, the atmosphere was very nice and laid back, chill music and many board games to use and friendly staff and a popular place. Also the baba ganoush was actually very good, be sure to have that if you eat here.

Pros: Chill atmosphere , Friendly staff, Popular

Cons: Unimpressed by the food, Too expensive for what you get

The humus is great! - Edit

We had brunch in a big group. Still, the atmosphere was very relaxed and friendly! I had a plate with humus, falafel and raw vegetables which was very tasty and a quite good mix for brunch! For Oslo the prices were extremly adequate which makes it a good place to eat there several times during a trip to Oslo ;)

Pros: good food, good prices, friendly staff

Cons: more vegan/vegetarian options would be great

Great place! - Edit

Nice place with good food. Best hummus and baba ganosh I've tasted in Oslo. Vegan, vegetarian and glutenfree option easy marked in the menu. Too bad the falafel isn't glutenfree, as they are glutenfree most places. Nice staff and enviroment.

Pros: Easy marked menu, Nice staff , Nice prices

Cons: Falafel isn't glutenfree

One of my favourite places to eat in Oslo - Edit

I like The Kasbah a lot. Like the other reviewers have said, the food isn't gourmet, it's simple and could be more inspired, e.g. with a wider selection of foods made from fruits and veggies. The best things they serve are all rather fatty, like hummus, baba ganoush and falafels, so I often end up feeling more stuffed than I'd like when I go there.

Even so, this is one of my favourite places to go out for food and beer in Oslo. The atmosphere is really cozy, they have some good beers, and I do love their hummus plate with falafel, even though it would've been even better with some more exciting greens than carrots, cucumber and bland tomatoes. Their baba ganoush sandwich is very small, but I warmly recommend their hummus plate, their falafel plate or a meze you put together yourself (with baba ganoush!).

All vegan dishes are clearly marked with VV. Gluten free is marked with G, and vegetarian with V.

Pros: Plenty of vegan options clearly marked, Cozy atmosphere, Meze with great baba ganoush

Cons: Not enough fruits and veggies, The food can appear slightly boring

The atmosphere is what counts here - Edit

The falafel is great and the hummus as well, they also serve a very nice wholegrain bread. Vegan and glutenfree options are marked which makes everything very easy.

They serve little to no fresh veggies, just fried stuff or with lots of oil on it. Their "smoothies" consist on three louzy ingredients such as: "Banana, apple juice and honey"

I agree with the first comment, the food is not exceptional and the prices are too high for what you get. I visit this place not because of their food, but because of the atmosphere and the service. It's a very comfortable space, with cool art and pictures hanging on the wall. Staff is very friendly and well, they are very vegan friendly which is not very common here in Oslo.

So, all in all a great place to visit as if to hang out, drink some tea - but not the best for eating.

Pros: Good falafel and hummus, Comfortable atmosphere, Friendly staff

Cons: Louzy ingredients, Cheap food - expensive price, No fresh veggies

Excellent hoummus and falafel - Edit

The best falafel in Norway, by far! Their hoummus is also excellent. Their menu is mostly vegetarian and have many vegan options. Every meal is marked as either vegetarian og vegan, which is also very helpful!

Pros: Great food, Great atmosphere, Excellent service

Cons: No outdoor area, Crowdy in the evening

Nice concept, but... - Edit

This place has a very nice concept, but the execution is somewhat flawed. The service is very friendly. They recommended fava beans with hummus, and the hummus was delicious. However the beans were obviously from a can. The olives that came as a side dish were of the cheapest supermarket brand and didn't taste like olives at all. With it came a slightly uninspiring salad. It is completely overpriced for a meal that takes so little effort to make and where ingredients are of the cheapest supermarket kind available. The Indian restaurant across the square (Gutta fra Calcutta), where they have several vegetarian options available, is a much better choice for a meal, and the price range isn't much higher.

Pros: friendly staff, nice atmosphere, great hummus

Cons: bad olives, canned beans
