Here is the only real sushi restaurant a Japanese cooks in Copenhagen. We can see many Japanese restaurants here however, all of them except Selfish is actually neither cooked nor operated by Japanese. If you would like to enjoy real sushi, visit here!

Tiny restaurant but excellent quality and a varied menu even for the single diner. Reasonably priced saki generously served.

Very friendly, fresh sushi, had a takeaway and they made it whilst i waited outside with a beer watching the world go by. Mum hadn't had sushi before so they put together an excellent taster menu to suit. Super. Thank you.

We visited selfish very spontaniously and I think we were quite lucky getting a table. It was packed within five minutes. It's not very big and it seems like they have mostly takeaway costumers. We tried one of their large plates to share and then...More

I went to this Japanese take-away just because was really close to my hotel, but it was indeed a really pleasant surprise! The personnel was kind and the quality of sushi really high! Literally delicious! I strongly recommend to try if you have the chance!:)

Ordered a large takeaway platter which was more than adequate for 3 people. The cuts of the various seafood pieces were superb and the rice was expertly prepared and hanging together nicely in the wraps. This must be the best sushi I have ever tasted!...More

We had a take-away order from Selfish on a Friday night. The order went down correctly, everything was there, ready in time and the personnel was very friendly. The food, despite the hype and raving reviews we read here, was just average. We had several...More

Authentic atmosphere, though it’s a tiny place and there are not many seats so go early. Hands down Copenhagen’s best sushi—the Danish Japanese restaurants in town cannot compare. I recommend you put yourself in the hands of the chef and let him decide. They also...More

You will have a hard time finding a place like this in Denmark. If you have been to Japan, you know what I am talking about. If you are lucky they will have medium-fatty and fatty tuna on the menu - and yes its better...More

Located just north of The Lakes, this neighbourhood is
a melting pot of small quirky clothing stores, dozens
of pizzerias and eateries of all types, a street
almost entirely devoted to antiques, several
microbreweries and even a couple of Michelin starred
restaurants. Here you’ll also find Assistens Cemetery
which is an ecclectic mix of tombstones as well as a
recreational park and where you will find the
