Harden's survey result
“An excellent throwback, which shows that the 1970’s can’t have been all bad!” – this “golden oldie” (“hard to find under an apartment block” north of Regent’s Park) is “unashamedly trapped in a bygone era” and everyone adores it (especially its devoted following of silver- and white-haired north Londoners). The “large menu” of retro fare is “always well-cooked”, comes in “very ample portions” and is served by “the friendliest and most efficient, caring waiters on the planet” (with a special shout out to Neil, the “entertaining man in charge of the sweet trolley”; reason to visit in itself for its magnificent selection of “ridiculously indulgent desserts”). “This is not dinner, but a night out!” – “go before it disappears!”
“How restaurants used to be” – this “fun throwback to the 1970s”, “quirkily located at the foot of a Regent’s Park apartment block” perfectly preserves the plush pink style of the era; while its “wonderful happy atmosphere” is buoyed along by celebratory parties of septuagenarian north Londoners bantering with long-serving staff for whom “nothing is too much trouble”. The generous dishes are “old-fashioned, but superb if you like the style” (“where else can you find a proper veal Holstein?”) and “there’s always a full house because it’s such good value” (“it’s booked well ahead by those who know it”). Be sure to leave space for Neil’s dessert trolley.
“Whether you’re 70, 80 or 90 years old: the place to party!” This priceless veteran, quirkily tucked away at the foot of a Regent’s Park apartment block, is “a top choice for senior citizens” across north London, “who want to take out 2-3 generations of their family for a celebratory dinner”. “It’s a total time warp”, but “very good at what it does”: “sturdy, classic ’70s food” is served in “generous portions” (“you’ll never leave hungry!”) by “unfailing” staff of the old school, in a “wonderfully camp”, “plush, pink and comfortable” (if “cramped”) setting. Special marks go to the “long-serving and extremely enthusiastic dessert waiter” (“OTT but fun”) who “always ‘saves the last one just for you!’”. Top Tip – “birthday cakes can be pre-ordered free for parties of 4+, and the singing’s not bad either!”
“It is as though the last 30 years never happened”, at this “unique” time-warp at the foot of a Regent’s Park apartment block – a fave rave for silver-haired north Londoners with birthdays to celebrate. For most reporters, it remains an utter “treasure” thanks to its “wonderful”, “retro” ’70s menu, “fun” style and “long serving staff” who help “put a smile on your face”, but for a few (including former fans) it’s starting to feel like it’s “gone over”. Top Menu Tip – “the famed dessert trolley”.
Oslo Court Restaurant Diner Reviews
"We've been visiting Oslo Court for a number of years. Great to see that standards have remained constant. Took my brother from Canada there on our last visit - he was just amazed at the way in which service was seamless in a crowded restaurant and at the high standard of food from a very long menu (usually not a good sign) Oslo Court continues to be our restaurant of choice for family celebrations."
"Walking into the restaurant is liking travelling back in time. We hadn't been there for a long time and it's still as if one might see Hercule Poirot enjoying the English food with such ample portions. Service is friendly and efficient in a nice old-fashioned manner. The pud trolley is still under the control of Neil, who goes back years too. An absolute charmer. Go to celebrate but ensure the appetite is up to it."
"An outstanding restaurant with excellent service and well-prepared food. A very traditional restaurant circa 1950's with a wide selection of appetizers and entrees,"
"Just a great restaurant. Something for everyone on the menu and the service is amazing!"
