When it comes to Indian food, the servings you’ll find in street cars is truly amazing.

We have brought this tradition to Oslo with our restaurant Listen to Baljit, where we offer a variety of regional street foods.
On the menu you’ll find dishes based on authentic masala, common ingredients in India, and traditional spice mixes from all corners of India. Our dishes consist of lamb, fish, meat, chicken, or vegetarian. We make good use of the Tandoori clay oven.
A WIDE VARIETY OF DISHES
India has a great regional variety of what is considered traditional, but all Indian foods share similar features: Full of flavour, texture and aromatic spices, the perfect combination of fine dining and social side dishes.
Apart from this, there are significant variations in Indian food, culture, climate, language, and traditions. A North Indian meal differs greatly from South Indian food when it comes to blend of spices, Indian cooking techniques and ingredients. Therefore, Indian cuisine consists of a wide variety of dishes.
