I have eaten there three times, and every time they delivered a nice meal. Not too expensive (keeping in mind how central it is), a main dish is rougly 18 euro (135 kr). The staff is smiling and helpful - they ask how spicy/hot you want it.

I've eaten Indian food all my life and I'm very fussy about Indian food in general. My colleague recommended this place so I went along with a sense a trepidation. The decor is reminiscent of Indian restaurants in the UK from the 80s. However the food was surprisingly good. We had a selection of starters and mains and all 7... More

If you're after good food and good service, then move on. The food is reasonable, I admit, yet the service is bloody woeful. 25 mins between seating and ordering - in an empty restaurant. The wait staff were too busy talking to each other. 3 different people waited our table which only caused confusion. They refused to serve us tap... More

I enjoyed the food a lot at Shahi restaurant. You can choose between three different grades of spicyness. Great idea, you can have Indian food which close to the authentic food in Asia.

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
