A rather big restaurant in center of Copenhagen. Fusion kitchen but primarily Vietnamese. Friendly staff, short waiting time. Prices moderate to high. Very well cooked, delicious and well presented dishes. Very big wine list.

I'm a novice with Vietnamese food, so I may have missed something, but both the food and the service left a lot to be desired. It didn't bode well when the drinks took 10-15 minutes to arrive at the bar for some of our party. Then we sat down - 10 of us - and it took 3 hours to... More

This was a great experience. Exotic delicious Thai cousin served with style. The atmosphere is friendly, staff is extremely humble and helpful, but most important is the food. This restaurant is worth visiting.

A month ago we were very enthusiastic about our a la carte dishes here, we vowed to come back for the tasting menu consisting of 12 dishes -- costing a serious 1040 DK for two. We expected to be served a series of exquisite small dishes of the same quality. Quod non. Perhaps two or three of the dishes (served... More

This place was so good, I visited a second time when I returned to Copenhagen. The sashimi Tuna starter and breaded pork cheek entree were both out of this world, especially for the price in a city where the food bill can add up quickly. The atmosphere is pretty cozy for this hip and urban neighborhood and the bar is... More

I went to LêLê with a colleague and really enjoyed our dinner there. We opted for a huge sharing dish consisting of a mix of fried Asian dumplings, rolls and other fresh small specialties (I believe it is Sadec) and they were incredibly tasty, every bit of it. The waitress taking care of our meal was super kind and really... More

Visited on a busy Sat night but only had a short wait for table at the cocktail bar on entry. Worth a visit in itself, even without meal, with talented bar man plying his trade. Nice ambience immediately on entry and helpful friendly staff. Continued through to restaurant where we were seated with good view of kitchen. Meal that followed... More

Yes, for food lovers this is truly an excellent place to dine. The sushi-style tuna and cheviche fish starters were breathtaking. The duck salad and vegetarian main courses were almost as good. We sampled tastes never encountered before, which makes us eager to come back. Next time we will splash out for the expensive 12 tapas-like dishes option. Though not... More

Awesome food if you like Vietnamese food. Most dishes have a slight modern touch. For instance they served pork cheeks but fare from the usual danish style The concept is well thought out. Everything from the menu cart, the music, interior and food have a modern touch. You likely have to make reservation. Be aware that prices are above average... More
