I visited this restaurant along with my mother and sister, this was a Friday night visit and the restaurant was not that busy. The order was taken using the name of the food and the menu number.

We visited shahi restaurant many times.the food was simply outstanding. We got both lamb and vegetarian dishes, a lot of beautiful accessories and Indian specialties,, waitor were polite but not Danish-speaking . The price is reasonable and the quality is real good.

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
