I did not know what to expect. Tne courses sounded like odd combinations but in actual fact all were delicious. I could not fault the food nor the service. The staff were really helpful and friendly and the environment; look and feel of the restaurant were great.

I had the duck main with salad and crisp rice squares. It was good to try something new, with new unusual ingredients I normally don't eat. The rice crisps were very crispy, a little too crispy (very hard shell) even for me, but overall experience was nice. Desert chocolate ganache with ice cream - I recommend.

Located at the heart of Copenhagen it´s easily accessible. Open and contemporary designed with urban appeal with open kitchen and bar. You get all Vietnamese specialities with a modern twist... lovely and good looking. Works well for both a romantic dinner as a business dinner.

Short dinner, not more. Pho soup: incredible; vegetable curry: unbelievable!!! One of the best culinary experience in my life! Only one thing I've got to mention: we paid using our Gold Visa card, and they added 3% surcharge to the final bill saying that this is the procedure if someone is using an INTERNATIONAL card.... Very-very strange...

Lele is a trendy Vietnamese restaurant which serves quite excellent food. It was originally very down-to-earth and affordable. Now it seems it has become so trendy that the staff has developed a snobbish attitude. The wine is expensive (the cheapest bottle is 350dkk and not very good).

Restaurant Lele was a treat for us after a day of waking all over Copenhagen. We arrived at 6:50 PM for our 7 PM reservation. There was a little mix up with our reservation. However, they sat us down in an outdoor table. We ordered our cocktails. Mango and lychee martinis. They were delicious. For entrees, we ordered crispy roll,... More

Came here with some work colleagues for dinner one evening. The service was excellent and attentive and the waitress was happy to design a menu for us. A few things we had were the excellent king fish ceviche, vegetable curry, pork done 3 ways and green papaya salad - although the salad wasn't spicy enough for me. The chocolate ganache... More

Our experience in this restaurant was very good. Went in by chance looking for a place close to our hotel. I personally went to Vientnam 4 times and I found the food here really very good. Even without reservation the table was ready in few minutes, the staff was friendly and, again, food was really good. Reasonable price for Copenhagen... More

We chose the fully fledged menu for all 5 of us, and ordered entrées and wine separately as we wanted a different choice. The service was ok, no more. The food, on the other hand, was a let down in terms of quantity, if not of quality, in relation to the price we paid. It is probably healthier to do... More

Modern interior, cosy warm colors and welcoming staff- that's the first impression. Food Vietnamese style, fresh, beautifully served and tasteful. Wine list , not too long but fitting well to the moderately spicy ( in asian way) food. The desert French chocolate cake assisted by a glass of sauternes, there could not be a better finale.
