As my wife is Thai had to go and try out this Thai Restaurant. Located very close to the Main Train Station in Copenhagen it was easy to find. While we are living in Thailand and therefore comparing menu pricing, it was expensive. Excellent food and service though. Not long wait time from ordering to serving was a big plus... More

Had some great tasting food here. The service was a little slow in taking the order, and we never got asked how the food was or if we would have liked another beer! We ended up getting a beer after in the 7/11 over the road. All be it the food was wonderful and the staff when present where nice.

Very tasty fresh food in this popular restaurant. Staff were able to advise on lactose intolerance which was very helpful. Food arrived reasonably quickly. Service was friendly and professional. Would be very happen to return.

Staying in Inner Vesterbro

Neighborhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
