I know this restaurant for such a long time, food is delicious, but it 's quite impossible to enjoy it, for one of the waitress scream and talk (or vice-versa) all the time towards the chinese guests. She is a nice person, but it annoys, and made me choose the Thai Poonchai right in front.

It was our second visit and we absolutely loved the dishes we ordered. Again. We may have been in luck when picking the dishes. Like I said, I am Chinese and I know what's what basically :) Service was normal. FYI - we had beef with black bean sauce & eggplant hotpot with pork.

Was my fifth visit to the place. This time I was totally disappointed. Increased price, decreased portion, not tasty as it was before and the worst service by the waitress. No more magasasa ever.

Looking for some comfort food of BBQ pork rice and came across the restaurant in Trip Advisor which was close to our hotel. This is a small restaurant and while the menu was like any other Chinese restaurant we chose the BBQ pork and Roast Duck rice combination. The food came out pretty quickly but unfortunately the quality does not... More

If you're craving authentic Chinese food that is not watered down to meet the local taste buds, this is the place to go. Take out or eat in, no nonsense and good food.

Small and narrow, not child friendly, bad service (especially the female waitress), ordered duck but not really good, but delicious lamb noodle soup, fried chicken with sweet and sour soup, and fried been with chili and garlic.

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
