Iranian food served in Danish atmoshere

This placed is located on a cool street in Nørrebro. I came across dozens of bicycles, many benches from other cafes filled with young Danes & a botega. The place gives mostly a Danish vibe. There is a closet if you wanna hang your coat. The staff are Danes, although they know the name of the... read more

I am Iranian and tried this restaurant with a friend while visiting Copenhagen. Our chicken kabob was clearly undercooked. They took what was left to grill it a bit more but still charged it. They charged us for water although we consumed other drinks - it's apparently customary in Denmark... I found the service very poor and the food very... More

The food is plentiful and good, but the service leaves a bit to be desired. The waiter attending to us wasn't particularly nice and when time came to split the bill she pose a lot of problems even saying one of us hadn't pay their part, because she didn't see the credit card receive even when she was the one...

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
