Good standard thai

Honest standard thai cooking. They have a three course meal for about 200 DKK and it's very good. You get a soup (coconut milk, chicken) mini spring rolls, chicken cashew nuts, beef/green curry and ice or coffee. Service fine. No need to reserve table on a normal day/evening.

Chicken vegetable soup was very good, served hot, and provided in a proper soup-size portion (not too small). Chicken pad thai tasted good, but as an entree was skimpy on chicken, noodles, and sauce. Only wine they offer by the glass is their house wine. Restaurant was busy on weekday night, and additional wait staff would have been nice.

Went to this little Thai place as if was close to our hotel and it was quite surprising. Lovely service and the food was great. Will definitely come back in my next visit to Copenhagen.

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.
