“Wonderful combinations of the Thai and French kitchens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

Myself and my partner ate here after reading the reviews on tripadvisor and must say we were not let down.

We started with the mixed starters and then to the main course, Duck breast glazed in honey and whiskey served with a fantastic Red Curry & double Lamb chops oven baked with Garlic and Mint together with a Massaman Curry.

Everything was perfect including the ambiance and service, would defiantly recommend this perfect twist on the Thai kitchen

“Impressive from first to last”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

We were there as a couple for a birthday (let's just leave it as >50!). Due to its location in a courtyard you cannot just walk by it and decide to drop in. You have to know.

The whole experience was as good as it gets. The service was smiling and knowledgeable. The food was amazing - a blend of tastes and spices that are recognizable individually and that at the same time perform a symphony on your tongue. Spices that burn then fade away, leaving a lingering taste of amazingly fresh ingredients. The room itself was warm and welcoming (I almost wished for a snowstorm outside, just to see the white compared with the warm orchid colors inside).

We went against the grain, and opted out of the set menu. We had the "6 small starters", and then ordered another starter from the menu, and then their (one and only) dessert. The resulting meal was as close to perfect in taste, amount, tempo, and ingredients as we have ever had.

Few reviews mention the wine list, which is brilliant and - compared to CPH standards - very inexpensive. We went for a bottle of a Provence rosé which was perfect because it had hints of ginger in it. Had to have a couple of extra glasses for dessert.

The dessert (the only one they have) deserves mention, because of its composition, ingredients and the fresh Thai fruits. It is seldom that desserts at oriental restaurants are created with the same diligence as the other dishes on the menu.

Many people seem to know, and seem to have known, about Khun Juk. The toilets have reviews on the wall, one of them from 2000 by a now relatively famous Danish "cook and food person".

Go for it.

“Best thai in CPH”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

I love Asian food ans specialy thai and vietnames cuisine. This was the greatest experience of thai food I ever had. Inovativ and elaborate dishes but still in the tradition register. Very friendly and competent staff. And for me very important a wine list that can be call a wine list. It s always the week point in Asian restaurants.
I strongly recommend this place.
