This impressing place was recommended by a friend who know some places in Copenhagen so we went for it. Even Thursday evening place was pretty packed up but we managed a place near kitchen. And it was a pleasure watching them working there, it was flawless, and you can tell they made it all well and precise. Also service was... More

well, I have had better vietnamese food before - it is tasty and good but too expensive. The location of Le Le is perfect, in the middle of Vesterbro and close to the center. And if you want to have a drink afterwards there a lot of bars in the neighborhood. Also Købbyen is very close. The ambiente is nice... More

What can I say? The food was so bad it literally had me shaking my head in dismay. We shared the quail as an entree. It was very dry and quite odd, heavily flavoured with cinnamon - not Vietnamese at all. I had the pho which I wanted as a main. It was truly awful. Almost flavourless but with a... More

LeLe is definitely a restaurant with style and an aura of high-end. The interior is beautiful and the seatings are great. The whole restaurant has different styled sections, all true to the Vietnamese way. I was just crazy about the blue lamps, so beautiful. The food, however, was not impressive. Starters were fine, but the main course lacked taste. Definitely... More

The food is good, not brilliant. The people are friendly but really don't understand why they can't serve you your food while there are standing behind a counter with 4 people. But, I'll go back to try some more as soon as I get the chance.

I just love this cool Vietnamese restaurant in Vesterbro, the old red light district of Copenhagen. The food is crispy, healthy, tasty. The waiters are all friendly, of all nationalities, all speaking excellent English. I go here with my friends, on nights out with collegues and we take foreign guests here. In my oppion the best urban, value for money,... More

I loved the street food concept of this restaurant. It's self service. You get the menu and sit were you like. Once you have chosen your meal you go to the front and order. You will be given a small buzzer to collect the food when it's ready. Nice and simple! The menu is very straight forward, the dishes are... More

We were all very dissapointed cos out of the 12 dishes, only 4 were good. Out of the other eight, 1 was... More

A rainy afternoon in Vesterbro Copenhagen becomes lovingly lively at this small cosy place with very good food, very friendly staff, and the furniture that keeps you alert and awake (because most of their chairs/stools have no back), and then even paying a bit towards the high side becomes acceptable, because nobody tries to push you out of the place...
