Copenhagen may not have its own Chinatown, but its Asian restaurants offer a variety of cuisines from all over the region, whether you're in the mood for sushi, curry or noodles.
Top of our list is tasteful Indian restaurant Bindia
, located a little out of town in the Østerbro district. The prices are a little higher than you might expect, but with its subtle range of spices and romantic ambience, this is more than just a curry house.
Those looking for a fiery curry that won't burn a hole in the wallet should check out the Pakistani restaurants around the Hovedbanegården, of which Shezan
is the oldest.
The trend for Thai and Vietnamese food hit Copenhagen in the late '90s, and this cuisine is offered at everything from cheap and cheerful noodle bars like Wokshop Cantina
to Michelin-starred restaurant Kiin Kiin
. Somewhere in the middle are Nørrebro's Thai Pan
in Vesterbro, where fair prices and good service are combined with a pleasant atmosphere and fresh decor.
While Copenhagen has a number of Chinese restaurants, many of them come off as too bland for experienced taste buds. We recommend Yan's Wok
, a well-established eatery near the Planetarium
with Hong Kong dishes its specialty.
There are now more sushi bars in Copenhagen than there are hot dog stands, with a number of citywide chains offering eat-in as well as take-out boxes. For those who prefer a longer dining experience, inner-city Sakura
is understated and charming, while Vesterbro's stylish Fifty Fifty
restaurant takes its inspiration as much from New York as it does Japan.
