Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Cold burger, but nice save! Working late. Missed my dinner. Just needed a quick meal and a beer or two before going to bed. Wanted to try a (for me) new place. Ended up at Sot Bar & Burger at Solsiden in Trondheim. I also...decided upfront that I would write a review... Cool place. Nice ambience. Asked for recommendations. Ordered food and two pints. At first the kitchen messed up the order, but eventually it was my turn. Half way into the Chili burger I realized it was partly cold - as if something had been heated out of a fridge. Not optimal. To be honest. I dont mind cold food. At home I eat out of the fridge all the time. I could have completed the burger, given a negative review on the food and be done with it. But I decided to let them know. Woman in the bar saved the situation nicely. Without being difficult she suggested a new burger. Ten minutes later the plain Sot burger was here - I loved it. Great burger, good service. And nice beer!More

Past the attitude of the waiter, we decided to stay as the burgers looked good. When placing the order, I was explained by the manager that it was impossible to keep track of the cooking of a 120-gram steak to the desired medium-rare. Interesting! So...basically, they had too many orders and couldn’t cook the meat properly (only the terrasse was busy with maybe 20 people, most of them already having food and the 2 floors inside were empty!). Bottom line: despite appearances, if you like meat, don’t go!More

The staff is acting unfriendly, the burger was somehow burnt, cold and dry at the same time. Overall a bad experience, and a shame to the city. 0/10. Complete and utter garbage.

A friend of mine recommended this place for a burger. I went after a work meeting and I was disappointed. Would find somewhere else if you’re in Trondheim.

We ate there the first day of our vacation and it was absolut disappointing. The burger sound fancy but taste like nothing, or wait ... it tasted like burned bread because it was all black, burned and overcooked. It was the worst vegetarian burger I...ever ate. The patty was so small, I hardly noticed it. My boyfriend have had a normal burger with blue cheese, which also didn't tasted like that. The fries where overcooked and the dips had some gum like texture. On top of this disastrous meal - it's been the most expensive of our whole vacation. Oh and we were still pretty hungry when we left...More

I have heard about this place for awhile and I was looking forward to see where Sot lies on the spectrum of burger pubs in Trondheim. Perhaps my expectations were just too high. It turned out to be a just passable restaurant experience. Perhaps there...were new trainees on duty, as there seemed to be a lot of loud banter with the (apparent) manager among the (young) crew. Service was decent, but it is essentially a self-service joint. One pays at the counter, one waits for the beeper, on picks up the order at a self-service pass. Drinks were served promptly, but the food took nearly 25 minutes to be ready. I suspect that it sat at the pass for awhile because the fries were cold and the burger just luke warm. We ordered the blue cheese specialty burger. There was no detectable blue cheese flavour in the first few bites. We actually had to confirm that we received the correct order because the overwhelming flavour of the burger was sweet. Sweet onion relish of some sort overpowered the burger. It was not helped by the non-descript white bun they used. After about the third bite when we broke into the center of the burger that we finally hit the blue cheese, very subtle indeed. I would not call it a blue cheese burger but a sweet relish burger. Also, yet again, I must take issue with the nomenclature "burger" as technically what we had was a chicken sandwich. A grilled, butterflied, seasoned breast of chicken sandwich. As I already mentioned, the sweet potato fries were cold. I wonder if they might have been from the freezer. Decor was nice. Tableware is that rustic shabby chic that is en vogue now, like enamel ware plates. Prices were fair market for Norway. All extras like cheese, bacon, sauces, etc. cost extra. I suspect part of the appeal of Sot is the bar. Overall, though I was disappointed, I would still hold it out as a decent choice for Sentrum eateries. Perhaps I just hit a bad night. 4Just know that there are perhaps 6 better burger joints about a stone's throw away.More

Very nice burgers, and of every burger there is a vegan version. Yes, a bit pricy, but everything is in Norway ;)

The burgers are ok. I was somewhat disappointed by the lack of juiciness. It's fairly expensive for average burgers and some of the seating arrangements are terrible. We waited pretty long, even though the place was half full.

The beetroot burger is vegan, ask the bar tender which toppings you can have that are vegan. They understand what it means and will ensure you get a vegan version of one of their burgers. Its a chilled hipster place, nice to sit outside on...sunny days and people watch with a nice cold beer.More

Been her a couple of times, a good and exciting selection of burgers. A somewhat poor selection in beverages if you don't drink beer though.
