This is one of Copenhagen's oldest Indian restaurants and has evolved to becoming one of the better ones. The location is close to Nyhavn which is a must, but that's a different review. We had the Beef Masala and the Beef Karahi (superb if you like it hot!), a chapati, a garlic nan and two pints for kr. 405,-. Good... More

As I am a fan of Indian food, we always try to visit one during our citytrips. So after a busy day we stumbled across Sahil. It's a cosy restaurant with good food close to Nyhavn. I'm a big fan of chicken vindaloo en can definitely recommand it! Good price-quality.

This restaurant was quite close to hotel bethel so ordered online for take out. The restaurant itself is quite nice and cosy. Prices are Copenhagen-like. Tried the chicken kadhai - it was typical and good. The Dal Tarkha (yello dal) was a bit unusual (different lentil) but still very tasty. The samosa was large and flat - again different. The...

Having already suffered two overpriced totally underwhelming restaurants in Copenhagen, it was a welcome relief to find a moderately priced comfortable restaurant serving excellent curry, and right on the doorstep of our Hotel the Best Western As there were 4 of us, we had a good selection of dishes and all delicious.

I happened to visit restaurant Sahil in Copenhagen for dinner on 12th September,2016. The cutlery was terrible. The food was full of chillies. Never had such large thick chapattis . The service was most unprofessional. Overall, a big zero from my side

What a very special restaurant. We would recommend this to anyone, especially if food from India and Pakistan are not part of your experiences. I drank draft local beer; my wife drank some fine “house” white wine. We shared a Somasa and completely enjoyed it. Our main courses were curries. My wife had a unique and wonderful lamb and spinach... More

I happened to walk past today place the day before so made a mental note to try it out the next day. It's near the water and a short stroll away from the main tourist area in Copenhagen. I ordered the Chicken Dhansak (DKK 110) and asked them to spice it up (being used to English currys and liking them... More

After four days in Copenhagen we were so happy to have a meal where they knew how to use spices and if you are also looking for vegetable options, this is your place, although the minced lamb was a highlight of our meal. I highly recommend it.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city.
