The waiter forgot our orders and didn't bring us anything until we asked him again after 45 minutes. Very bad and unprofessional service. Would not recommend.

The food served was not fresh and tainted. The local is not very cozy. Lots of better alternative vietnamese restaurants exist in Copenhagen. No reason to try this one out.

Nice small place close to the train station, situated below surface, like in a cellar. We wanted to eat here on Monday, but they were closed (Tuesday as well). We had no time anymore for real dining, so we did a take away of two noodle dishes and ate it at the airport. Beef noodles with nice taste with lots... More

This is not authentic vietnamese restaurant, but just a mimic run by chinese. How do I know? Because I am vietnamese. We were 9 people ordering all kind of dishes. When the food was served, and after trying the first bite, we had to immediately spit it out. It was horrible. They served SPOILED food. None of us could continue... More

We enjoyed out takeout food from this little Thai restaurant....handy to our hotel and reasonably priced too. My beef and vegetables was fresh and flavoursome....appreciated the honesty of the server, that the duck dish on the menu wasn't the best choice I could make.

I thought it would be good to get some Phaa soup while in Copenhagen - it is usually a safe bet. When I spoke to the server he was very helpful in finding the list of ingredient for me (including the beef bouillon cubes they use for the soup base. The service was slower than I am accustomed to in... More

I enjoyed everything. The environment is very charming, wonton soup was delicious and i didn't find the price so expensive to deserve $$$ in the description. If you consider the cost of living in Denmark, yes it is expensive, but you are also able to eat within a fair price.

Went there as an alternative to Lele and honnesty this is much better for similar prices. We tried the tiger schrimp spring rolls which were excellent, the beef salad and the chicken curry. All very nice and tasty. They have also a nice white wine by the glass. Overall a great experience which I will renew! Goodbye Lele and bonjour... More

Ok first of all I'll have to say, I haven't tried many of their dishes, but only because I can't resist their exquisite Pho Bo, which in Happy hour only costs 59 dkk! I have also tried their spring-rolls and a veal salad (if i remember correctly) and they are also very tasty, but nothing compares to the Pho.. It... More

We have enjoyed dinner with the family here several times, and, admitted, it doesn't get the superlatives out, but on the other hand we were never dissapointed. Good beef salad, good soups, good starter-combo... A bit slow service.

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.
