The menus are based on a healty edition of the classic french bistro cuisine with a twist of South-East Asian spices and vegetables. The concept of The Red Box is similar to the best fusion restaurants in New York or San Francisco, reviewers tell us...Our courses are based on the most fresh vegetables, seafood, fish and meat at the market - some of them even organic - and we also are happy to serve you a vegetarian meal.

Started out with their pear cocktail and the "Chinese five" starter followed by the beef fillet, which was very nicely prepared. Ended with their desert trio. All outstanding. I would have given them a five, but they dropped a cocktail on our table and made a mess with nothing offered to make up for it. Had to move to different table so they could clean up. Though they would have not made us pay for the drinks!

We went a group of colleagues and clients upon the promise of innovative chinese fusion-kitchen, which definetely is not a trend among the Copenhagen chinese restaurants.

Unfortunately the promises and ambitions were not met. The starter named "5 small Chinese", which is supposed to be a signature dish was - at least for 3 of the 5 small dishes - simply to bland in the taste.

The entree was veal in french inspired sauce. Actually very tasty, but nothing really special and especially it was hard to find the specific chinese influence on the dish.

The wine selection is OK, but again absolutely nothing special. The surroundings are OK cozy, and the service is also OK, even though one of the waiters suddenly was taken outside to be questioned by the police....!

Excellent food, professional and friendly waiters, and nice atmosphere! You go home with a smile on your face and a whole new vision of what Chinese food can be like.

The Red Box is in a class of its own for what it offers in Copenhagen. The quality and attention to detail is apparent from the minute you are greeted at the entrance, shown your table and handed a peppermint infused towel to freshen up your hands and awaken your senses.
The fusion between French and Chinese food, combined with the fresh ingredients, makes for a multitude of delicious flavours and the world seems to slow as you appreciate the outcome. One of our favourites was the duck! (note to chef: please put this one back on the next menu!).
The Desert is also packed full of aromas to finish on. The Chocolate mousse is heavenly and the best I have had in a restaurant. The earl grey ice cream is so fresh and natural tasting, that I wish you could buy this by the box!
The wine card is also impressive with the 2009 Shotfire Shiraz being a perfect companion to the duck or one of the other red meat dishes.
In regards to the service, it is very attentive and genuine. You can tell the staff all feel a part of this restaurant and care about the quality. Even the dish introductions are spoken with care.
We will be back a third time!

I had no idea that the fusion of chinese and gourmet worked so well!! This place is amazing with a very nice ambience. The food is very creative and delicious. The staff is friendly and very attentive. This place deserves a higher rank than what it has on TA today and for that they have my vote anytime.
Loved it here and would love to come again!
