Oslo is not particularly known for any kind of vegetarian culture. There are far too many salmon and reindeer for that. Not being one myself (vegetarian I mean – I’m obviously not a reindeer either), I’m also not actively seeking such dining options. However, I really enjoy Krishna’s for a delicious and affordable vegetarian meal.
This small cafeteria style restaurant has a bit of a strange location inside of a shopping center in Majorstua. The menu changes daily depending on what the chef decides to prepare that day, but often includes vegetable curries, chutneys, rice, soups, and other Indian style fare. They post the menu on their website below, so be sure to check that (Norwegian).
In addition to standing as this all-too-rare vegetarian option, Krishna’s also happens to be among Oslo’s almost nonexistant “all you can eat” possibilities. For 135 kroner you can be served as many servings of the 5 course meal as you’d like. Wonderful if you’ve been trekking around all day and need to replenish your energy. They also have cheaper options and smaller portions for the less hungry.
