A joke that they still call this street kitchen. You pay a fortune - and cant even order a table - no no they want you to libe up to get a 25 eur cocktail while you are waiting, all the while they pretend to be cheap street hipsters. You need 3-4 dishes to feel just a little full. I... More

Being from the mid-West (USA) we were never exposed to Vietnamese food. The concierge at our hotel recommended this place as we had requested someplace within walking distance. We did not have reservations (highly suggested), but they were able to seat us (2) at the bar which is set up for couples dining. The menu is small and many items... More

We were a party of three. The moment we stepped into the restaurant we were greeted by a very hospitable host. We got a window seat and shortly after a very friendly waiter poured water into glasses for us. We ordered the "complete sharing" menu which consists of 9 dishes. Every of the 9 dishes were served with an explanation... More

It's the most atas (high class) Vietnamese restaurant my Friend and I have ever visited. The selection is not huge, only about 15 dishes but the dishes we had we really good. Prices are hefty as the portions are not huge. We had the papaya salad which is not sour Nor authentic enough, but upon adding their sour Chilli, it... More

Dinner for two. We were going for a concert so didn't have all night. The waiter was informed about this and helped keeping pace so we could finish our meal in due time - which was a shame since it is a nice place. The papaya salat was disappointing, but the Crispy Rolls were excellent. The duck breast also. Cosy... More

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).
