Went there whilst on holiday. I ordered the prawn red curry which was delicious and the flower tea which was unusual and blue but still tasty. The waitresses were friendly and didn't feel like they rushed you like some other places. Authentic atmosphere and comprehensive menu with something for everyone.

Lovely Thai place behind the central Station. The food was delicious (I had the garlic spicy ribs which were the best ribs I've eaten!) and the waiters were friendly and efficient. Cute authentic decor throughout the restaurant.

The meals are aimed at 2 or more people, if you're a solo guest you'll find sparse and higher priced portions. The waitress talk too loud as almost a rule in thai restaurants, and last week I ordered two dishes and they brought both different.. I realised the waiter saw the menu photos upside down, though I read it in... More

Got to Copenhagen late, and as we were tired and starving, we decided to eat here because it was across the street from our hotel. Food was lovely. Between us we had tom yum soup, spring rolls, red curry and fried noodles with chicken. Everything was so tasty especially the soup and very quick service. We were in and out... More

Nice staff and menue. Food served in time and with timing. Nice flavours. Overprized the tap water and an extra charge for credit cards is simply not ok.

Nice and cozy place. Went in because I saw Thai people eating there. The food is real Thai and might be spicy if you're not used to it. Great little place.

My (Thai) wife and I ate here as it was round the corner from our hotel (it's also very handy for the railway station). She was very pleased with her som tam (spicy green papaya salad), said it was authentically Thai in taste but particularly good because they had used local Baltic crabs for the fish sauce. I had lap... More

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.
