Perfect place to go after strolling around the superb Islamic art collection at the David Collection across the lake ... the menu is limited (especially for vegetarians) but competently done. You can take your own wine and the service is friendly (if a little slow when the restaurant is busy at the weekeneds).

The Restarant is in a former troubled area, but you have nothing to fear. The street is a waking street and the restaurant serve dished from Persia (Iran). Big portions but perhaps lack of hot species. Bring your own wine or use the winecard.

Although I see this place have high reviews, our experience was not very favourable. It seemed to us that the dishes were made for Scandinavian palets (we are both Scandis ourselves) - and it just lacked flavour, menu creativity (all main dishes are more or less accompanied with the same side dishes - no variaty what so ever) and the...

This is a hidden gem in Copenhagen. I went there with a friend yesterday. From the outside, it doesn't look all that great- But once you step in the door, listen to the music, get a whiff of the food cooking in the kitchen - you know you've come to a great place. We started off with something called the... More

We were attracted by an window ad we knew from Australia - byo - Bring your own wine, which we did. Zafran offers persian inspired food both vegeterian and meat. We shared a spinach dip as starter followed by lamb with saffron / dill rice (me) and a grilled vegetable plate (my wife) also with saffron rice. Both were cooked... More

Found this place on a busy pedestrian street. It hints on its welcoming service by suggesting to bring your own wine, which may be common in middle east countries but certainly not for us. We had a house sallad , vegetarian course and chefs favourite lamb leg dish - all very tasty and fresh. Prices where very good and together... More

Well, I am an Iranian guy who has lived in Copenhagen for almost four years. I can say the food here is authentic Persian food which is quiet cheap for what you get in Copenhagen. Missing amazing Persian kebabs in Tehran, this place reminds me of home for some hours. I took many of my international friends there and they... More

We had a really nice dinner here. The host/server was very friendly and helpful. The food was good, but my wife and I thought that the main courses were missing something/lacking a little flavor. Our appetizer was delicious (roasted aubergine spread/dip). (Tip: foreign credit cards are not accepted)
