We had a take-away order from Selfish on a Friday night. The order went down correctly, everything was there, ready in time and the personnel was very friendly. The food, despite the hype and raving reviews we read here, was just average. We had several...More

Authentic atmosphere, though it’s a tiny place and there are not many seats so go early. Hands down Copenhagen’s best sushi—the Danish Japanese restaurants in town cannot compare. I recommend you put yourself in the hands of the chef and let him decide. They also...More

You will have a hard time finding a place like this in Denmark. If you have been to Japan, you know what I am talking about. If you are lucky they will have medium-fatty and fatty tuna on the menu - and yes its better...More

Really great little sushi place, plenty of outdoor seating plus a good range of Japanese and European beers and drinks. The owners are actually Japanese and the sushi is fresh and delicious. The gyoza is also very tasty.

Super fresh and tasty sushi, average service. A little expensive. To try but come with cash because foreign cards are not accepted

There is capacity for only 12 guests at a time, very cozy place with a very friendly and talented Japanese chef. The selection of food is simply exquisite and is one of the best if not the best japanese restaurant I've ever been!

Located just north of The Lakes, this neighbourhood is
a melting pot of small quirky clothing stores, dozens
of pizzerias and eateries of all types, a street
almost entirely devoted to antiques, several
microbreweries and even a couple of Michelin starred
restaurants. Here you’ll also find Assistens Cemetery
which is an ecclectic mix of tombstones as well as a
recreational park and where you will find the
