Having had delicious food the days before, this has definitely been a disappointing experience. One of the dishes was full of red and green peppers even though this was not mentioned in the menu (unlike for some of the others). The mango lassi was far from being fresh, and even the Nan (which is usually a safe bet) was pretty... More

This is definitely not a for business or romantic dinners. I had samosas and vegetarian Spinach balls with karachi sauce which sounds exotic but is pretty ordinary curry. Personnel is amazing, a waitress is literally running and doing her best and at the same time other waiter is away or talking with buddies. Small peculiarities occurs all the time, from... More

We were seated at a two top by a gracious man. Two beer and two samosas and we were on our way. We had such tasty food and a huge plate... More

Eating at 9 on a Friday in Copenhagen seems difficult, most restaurants closing. God knows what happens to the Spanish tourists here. So - came here as it was still open. Plus: initially good service, food ok, well spiced (nice!), wine ok, rather 1980s sitar music. Then everyone left. We sat at 10 finishing our wine whilst the cleaner started... More

If your a lover of curries, spicy or mild and in Copenhagen then I would highly recommend the Shahi. I am from Bradford in the UK and like a nice curry, sometimes hot sometimes tasty, and this place serves a real nice tasty curry. The location is lovely and its a very unassuming little restaurant, the staff were great, very... More

A super little restaurant in central Copenhagen. Food excellent, wait not too long and food was actually hot. By Danish standards this is also cheap! Staff were friendly and restaurant was clean. Not much more to add really only I would recommend this restaurant who visits the city and likes Indian food!
