As those looking for a Chinese restaurant in Copenhagen can confirm, this city has more of a Chinese intersection than it does a Chinatown, with the cheapest and most authentic eateries to be found amongst the small Chinese community in Vesterbro, next to the Central Train Station: Fu Hao
and Tea Restaurant
, for example, both popular dim sum spots.
Traditionally, Copenhagen does not do Chinese food well. The ' Kina grill
' is the place for cheap, greasy fast food, and most Chinese restaurants trade on bland buffets. That's why our top choice, Yan's Wok
, is such a find; not only does it have an exciting and fairly inexpensive menu, it also has tasteful surroundings, white tablecloths and friendly service.
In the past decade a number of restaurants have opened that should help repair the city's reputation, offering a far healthier, tastier and more authentic range of Chinese cuisine. Of these, the newest and trendiest are The Red Box
, on Store Kongensgade, with its Chinese /European fusion kitchen; and Restaurant Dim Sum
, another eatery from the team behind Kiin Kiin
Copenhagen's Chinese restaurants are predominantly Cantonese, and like most European Chinese eateries, the food is not overly spicy. They are amongst the city's most inexpensive dining options, and the cheapest of them is surely Magasasa
The Chinese lunch of dim sum, with many small dishes, has grown in popularity. Other restaurants that offer dim sum include Royal Garden
, Pak ka
and Canton Restaurant
Those visiting Copenhagen in the summer should note: Many of the city's Chinese restaurants close for a month during July.
