Finally a Chinese restaurant that has good roast duck that doesn't bust your budget. Forget about the hype around other Chinese/Asian restaurants and head to this one. It's perhaps not worth travelling all the way to eat there but great to visit if you're in the vicinity.

The dumpling soup noodle is also great for a quick soupy lunch.

Waitress is grouchy but take that as a sign of authenticity. Good value for money.

We tried the roast duck and 'sui kow' (item 14 and 15) and both of them were great. As good as those we can find back home (we are from Malaysia and Singapore). Ironically, the rude waitress was a sign to us that the food would be great, we joked :-P Prices are good and well worth every visit.

My husband and I got the WORST experience here in CPH! The waitress was eating when we wanted to order (we couldn't see that she was eating). She replied n I quote " Can't you see I'm eating? How Annoying!" in Chinese. ( we are from China) We were then be left there for 20 mins without being asked by anyone.... We took off finally n decided not to come back again. It SUCKS to be treated in such a RUDE way by a person from the same country as we are while all the other foreign people are so nice and helpful....

Magasa is not easy to find with its narrow facade facing a minor road near the Copenhagen main railway station.

We found it by an accident and that was quite fortunate.

This restaurant is an authentic Shezuan Chinese restaurant with poor service but great food. We tried the wonton soup, grilled chillies, roasted duck and fried beef, which all were excellent. The duck was outstanding and is worth a visit iit self.

The service is typical chinese, slow and a little bit rude,

But as mentioned, the food is really good and a bit of bad chinese service, will not scare me away. I Can definetely recommend this place, and their price tag too.

Nothing exeptional. Quick and cheap. Chinese fast food. A bit too much dough around everything. The wine was too warm, vegetables were good. Went there with 2adults and 3 children and spent 750 kr, in other restaurants our budget for evening meal rose up to round 2000 kr
