Description: THE RESTAURANT HAS CLOSED FOR THE SUMMER UNTIL AUGUST THIRSDAY 11: Welcome at The Red Box, a modern asian-french fusion restaurant in the heart of Copenhagen with a fashionable situation and a very warm and smiling atmosphere and service. 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.

“It looks fancier than it actually is.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

This restaurant caters for amateurs of modern asian fusion cuisine. We ordered a stear-fried tiger prawns dish and a kind of avocado, tomato, chicken, pear and mushrooms salad. The prawns were ok, but nothing special, the salad was interesting. For the main course, we had a red snapper fillet and a beef tenderloin. Both were OK, but overpowered by pepper, which was a pity. Finally, dessert was a combination of an apple pie, a sorbet, and a matcha-mint mousse. Nice, especially the mousse. We ordered wine by the glass, which was alright. Overall, it was alright, but perhapy a little pretentious for the level of the food served. The very international staff was really friendly, though.

“Cool little chinese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Red Box does a sort of up-to-date chinese food, meaning greener and overall friendlier presentation than the oil soaked classics chinese restaurants in copenhagen tend to offer.
We tried 5 dishes from the card, and overall it was good, a couple of the dishes were a bit to easy let, therefor red box land on 4.

“Good food and service.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

We took the multiple sample menu and enjoyed that very much. It is a nice way for children to get to know new tastes including sea food. The food is well presented and tates good. Warm and friedly ambient.

“Stifling Heat Overshadows Solid Food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

Wish I could give this one a solid review for the food, which was actually very good if not particularly memorable. But the negatives influenced the experience to too great a degree: 1) Extreme heat in the restaurant--broken ac?? Seriously, men were sweating and everyone was taking off as many layers as possible; 2) Very slow service, especially as the meal progressed (particularly odd since it was a prix fixe three-course meal--no surprises or changes in the ordering)--we thought dessert would never come; 3) the smallest by-the-glass wine pours we've ever encountered--meaning that the wine was crazy expensive.
