This is a must go place for foodies. It certainly earns its Michelin star. If you are serious about unique, imaginative and beautiful food, it is worth the trip to Copenhagen by itself.
The restaurant is small and in a modest but nice neighborhood. You will need a cab and maybe some directions to find it, but don't be put off by that. Our cab driver had no problem; it is pretty well known.
The food is Thai inspired, but like no Thai restaurant I have been to (including living in and traveling to Southeast Asia for 35 years...so I have some experience). Everything is fresh, beautifully presented, and imaginative. You are served a wide range of appetizers and small entre plates, chef's choice. For goodness sake, let this chef choose! The flavor pairings are unique and carefully thought out. The flow of the dishes is also carefully organized: each dish complements the one before and prepares for the one after it.
The wine pairings work remarkably well. One does not usually go to Asian restaurants for the wine or the wine pairings. This is the first time I came away from one saying "that worked really well!" I learned some new wine pairings for my own Asian cooking that I would never have thought of, and which are better than the more usual beer. The presentations are all beautiful. It all works as a marvelous combination of culinary imagination.
You start informally in the lounge downstairs. Relax on the pillows and big chairs. After a few small plates, you move upstairs to the more formal dining room (filled with casually dressed guests...clean up, but no need to over dress). The service is outstanding, but the food is the star.
This is one of the best meals I have had at any restaurant. It is expensive, but compared to what? Compared to the neighborhood Thai restaurant, sure, it is expensive. Compared to the best restaurants in the world, of which this is one, it is a relative bargain.
Get a reservation well in advance. It is a small place and it sells out quickly.
