After finding this reatsuarnt on Tripadvisor - rated #9 of all restaurants in Copenhagen - out expectations where high. Unfortunately this was very much overrated. Nice location in the city but very average Food, dry duck (told them and they removed it from the bill) and way to expensive compared to other restaurants we've been to.

Had the lamb with mint and garlic with massaman curry- probably the best lamb curry dish I have ever tasted!! Really enjoyed the whole meal and experience in this small, intimate restaurant.

Once again, excellent food & service at one of the few quality restaurants in Copenhagen which provides value for money.

It's a bit tricky to find as it's located in an inner courtyard but it was well worth the search! The restaurant is tastefully decorated, cosy and romantic atmosphere.

We ordered the “Khun Juk Menu” (6 small starters, grilled beef as main course and the Khun Juk dessert) with wine menu. The food was wonderful prepared (see my attached photos) and very tasty!

Prices are above average for thai food but this still is a bargain compared to other restaurants in Copenhagen

Friendly staff and excellent service!

In a city with plenty of choice also on the Thai restaurant front, Khun Juk Oriental turned out to be worth all the praise we had heard and read beforehand. Excellent service on any standard - let alone the Copenhagen standard - and superb value for money.

It ain't exactly haute cuisine in the sense that the dishes would be trying hard to be "creative". Instead, it's genuine Thai in an unpretentious way and served in really generous portions.

If I had to bring up one thing that was not exactly what I was expecting, that was one of the main dishes we ended up having. Roasted duck breast glazed with honey and makong whisky had lost the taste of whisky altogether at some point in the preparation. However, that's nothing but a sidenote. Overall, it was a dining experience close to perfection.
