It is too sad: Basically friendly staff, superb shushi and a nice location. But why these ridicously insane prices? Why pretending to be flexible about the menue and charging all the same amount in the end? Why not telling us, that they want to sell you the standard menue and nothing else? There is the same or even better shushi... More

We booked a table here on the strength of TA reviews, but came away disappointed. We opted for the Chef's choice of sushi. I quite enjoyed most of the courses, although several included avocado which I don’t like. Unfortunately, each piece was quite large so you had to eat it in two bites, but then it fell apart! My husband... More

Damindra is a treat for sushi lovers...the chefs creations are not the standard fare you get in normal sushi places. There are too many great rolls to describe, but if you don't mind paying a bit more, Damindra is excellent! Location is near Nyhavn in central Copenhagen and parking is difficult. Best to take a taxi or use metro....

We dined there with a friend last spring. This restaurant was surely pleasantly surprising. The presentations of the dishes were nice and the ideas for the courses were fantastic. I think this is without a doubt the best Japanese restaurant I have ever been to. Next time I´ll visit Copenhagen this restaurant will be one of my destinations. The price... More

World-class sushi experience. Best parts: salmon sashimi with enoki and ginger, lobster gunkan, tuna futomaki, petit fours (yes, petit fours)... Excellent sake selection. Good service. Pleasant design and location. If you like Japanese cuisine, or want to discover it, you must go here.

Went here on business. The name does not remind one of a sushi restaurant but inside the food was outstanding. Creative sushi dishes, that were both visually interesting as well as very delicious. The owner seemed to oversee everything for the guests and made some recommendations. In the end we chose to have the Chef choose for us and it... More

Only a hundred meters away from one of the busiest places in Copenhagen, Nyhavn, this is an amazing restaurant in a quiet surrounding. The place itself is very nicely decorated with a true eye for detail. Service overall is very good. We tried the surprise menu and we were very pleasantly surprised. Very tasty and beautifully served. The owner from... More

I have previously had very good experiences with Damindra, but this time i experienced that i called in 3 months in advance, booked a table and then called on the day to recheck the table and it turned out they very closed!!! Extremely poor control and coordination! Write in your booking book, when you are open and closed!

My husband and I visit this restaurant following the recommendation from the guide "Where the chefs eat". The restaurant is located very close to Nyhavn and Kongens Nytorv but a bit hidden in a side street behind the Royal Danish Theatre. We had a Lunch Plate (275 DKK) consisted of salat with tempura squid, salmon and tuna sashimi in garlic/soya... More

We had dinner at Damindra last night (a Wednesday - no reservation). Food: Fresh and creative sushi (amazing salmon sashimi, lobster with spicy dressing, excellent scallop), lovely atmosphere ( big flower arrangements, jasmine scents everywhere including in the spotless bathroom), service: discreet but efficient. I've tried 6-7 sushi restaurants in CPH incl 3 different Sticks and Sushi, Sashi Sushi, shufoku,... More
