Description: Restaurant LêLê serves modern Vietnamese cuisine. Here you get new interpretations of the classic Vietnamese Imperial kitchen, made with international gastronomic inspiration. The food is simple but flavorful and always served with delicate fresh herbs, so whether you like sweet, salty, sour or spicy there is plenty to choose from. At our cocktail bar you can enjoy both pre and after dinner cocktails – all made with a delicious Asian twist.

Liked the food, the menu was varied and the service was excellent . However we found the restaurant overpriced at 60 euros per person. The location is also quite central and the setting was nice. Might be too noisy to sit outside if the weather permits.

Being married to a woman who is not only Vietnamese but also an excellent cook has left me with very high expectations when it comes to Vietnamese cuisine. Lele exceeded some of them, but failed to live up to others. The papaya salad was excellent, but the Pho was substandard. The fresh spring rolls were very tasty, but the fried ones were pretty unexciting. Fortunately, the main courses were all pretty good. However, at this price I would expect better than "good". Also, why is there no Vietnamese beer on the menu?

This modern vietnamese was a bit disappointing. The menu was very limited and the food was not very good. Especially the vegeterian choices (which were one or two) were tasteless. Plus it was expensive.

The restaurant was a nice open layout. LeLe offers variations on traditional favorites, but the flavours really compliment and food tastes delicious. Food was very fresh, although a little more on the pricey end. Service was good. A few options available for vegetarians (starters) but only 1 main (which was tastey and a big portion).
I would definitely recommend the condensed milk ice cream with vietnamese coffee granita or the earl grey ice cream.

This impressing place was recommended by a friend who know some places in Copenhagen so we went for it. Even Thursday evening place was pretty packed up but we managed a place near kitchen. And it was a pleasure watching them working there, it was flawless, and you can tell they made it all well and precise. Also service was very kind and efficient. Food, well food was nice. (we had the tasting menu, 12 different portions). But it was was just nice, not special kicks of flavors there. And considering that the price was on the upscale, it brings the total value down. Sorry.
