“First Thai experience!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

Well...as in the title, it was our first time to try this interesting cuisine, so we cannot certainly tell if it was a very good or average quality restaurant. In any case we generally liked it.
We have chosen to eat there our very first night in the city, returning to our hotel located on the opposite side of the street. The atmosfere is nice and cosy and after a difficult dialogue with the waitress we have ordered and, really fast, got our dishes!
We have taken the springrolls with meat but they were nothing special. Then as main dishes; one Pad Thai with chicken (rice noodles with tofu, egg, vegetables, lime and roasted peanuts) good but a bit dull if you eat it up all by yourself, and, what we liked the most, Kaeng Pa Naeng with chicken as well and served with rice. This panaeng curry contains coconut milk, longbeans, bell peppers, sweet basil and lime leaves and as a combination results really interesting and fresh!
With two glasses of water (24DKK) we paid a total of 323DKK (about 46,10 €). Even a good value for money. We suggest a try!

“Great food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

The food was great and the service was excellent and good value for money. It is very handy to the west exit of the railway station and near lots of popular reasonably priced hotels.

“Friendly Folks and Fine Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

We were looking for some different food and the Poonchai Thai was very close to our hotel, although I might not have entered (the modest front put me off) but our son insisted that some Thai Food would be good for an early evening meal. We were seated quickly, the food selections were varied, and we enjoyed watching the various patrons and "regulars" that were eating at this place.The nicely plated food was served quickly along with frequent refills on our tea and water. It was fresh and very hot (temperature wise). We did request to split a plate and the servers took care of this very nicely. Food in Copenhagen is not cheap, but we felt that good value for the money was provided here. We were treated with courtesy and respect. I will note that the 3% foreign credit card surcharge was added to our card, but found this at several places in Europe this time when we traveled. We returned to eat there after our cruise and again enjoyed a fine standard of food and service.

“Rude staff that assume you will cheat them”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

Avoid this place like the plague - the nice food is not worth the hassle. We had nice food, paid our bill, chatted a while and then left. Then the waitress and chef ran down the road after us telling us we hadn't paid. They forced us to return and we had to call the police to help us. It took half an hour and camera surveillance footage to convince the very rude Thai owners that we had indeed paid (despite having a receipt and showing the change they had given us). Rather than apologize and offer compensation, the Thai owners shrugged their shoulders and said half of their customers cheat them. If you go here, make sure you have witnesses that will testify you have paid. The staff can turn from smiley people to very nasty people very quickly!
