Nice authentic Thai restaurant

A nice cosy restaurant with authentic Thai ambience upon walking in. The spices use in cooking the dishes is as closed or almost similar to those I can taste in Bangkok. Prices of the dishes are reasonable. You can choose the type of meat for the dish - chicken, pork, prawns

We loved the coconut milk soup and the spring rolls. The location was very handy to our hotel too. Decor was charming and the service very good

I have walked past this restaurant several times and it has always had plenty of empty seats. The pictures of the food on the windows looked great so we decided to give it a try. The staff were all Thai so that was a good indication that things may go well. When it did arrive we were pleased the food... More

Seeing the mixed reviews here we decided to stop by and "test" the atmosphere before deciding whether to stay. We stopped. We stayed. We did not regret it. It was Sunday, the place was relatively quiet but there were enough comings and goings, and a friendly and welcoming reception to persuade us to stay. The food was excellent, and very... More

Really tasty Tom Yam Goong and the Nam Tok salad was as hot as any I had in Thailand. I haven't had a Thai meal as good as this in a long time.

We ate at this restaurant our first night in Copenhagen. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the Phad Thai was very good and reasonably priced.

Having been in Europe for the past 3 months, this was the first time we ate fried fish (a whole and intact fish!) in Europe. It was crispy and tasty. We also ordered the ribs but we felt that the ribs were a bit too tough.

We ordered a satay with peanut sauce (pretty good), spring rolls (so so), red curry chicken (fresh) and red curry shrimps (fresh). The curry is quite good, flavorsome and not too rich with coconut cream. Definitely try the mango dessert, which comes with glutinous rice and a sweet coconut cream.

After a week of Danish food, the taste bud is yearning for something fragrant and spicy. What could be better than Thai food? Of course the concern is whether some Asian food in European cities are toned down and made to cater for local tastes. But it was a nice surprise. It is as authentic as you can get. Green... More
