The decor, ambiance, service, and food quality were mediocre, with an unproportionally high price tag. Place felt a little worn-down and tableware had cracks. The way the ingredients were chopped, processed, and presented lacked professional training and were anti-aesthetics. The dishes were a mixture of Thai and Chinese but it shouldn't be the excuse to use the wrong combination of... More

This "Asian bistro", as it terms itself, is not fancy, but serves a flavorful variety of dishes outside the mainstream of Thai cuisine which is so dominant in Copenhagen. We had the Chaiwong ribs (delicious but could have done with more side salad, less ribs) and whole seabass (decoratively served, well cooked). The service was attentive and polite, which is... More

We had booked the 10 course tasting menu - which looked excellent. And it was - 10 delicious dishes at a reasonable price. But - the waitress' attitude and direct rudeness spoiled it all. We were seated at a tiny table, and then a bombardment of dishes started. When we asked them to slow down the waitress as a direct... More

Very relaxed, bistro type restaurant serving some very delicate and tasty dishes, predominantly Thai inspired. I had a 10 course menu which provided a whole range of tasting experiences, including both mild and very hot dishes, lots of salads, shellfish and some delicate meat. The price is very moderate compared to the quality of the food. A surprisingly sophisticated wine... More

Was super excited to try this place based on the good web reviews and was super disappointed 5 min into arriving. Environment seemed unclean and cramped. Waiter had a huge open sore on his face and dirty shirt and was really kurt boarder lining on rude. My husband had to order 3 mains before they actually had one. Meaning they... More

Based on very positive newspaper reviews we had really looked foraward but were greatly disapointed: Long waiting (even though we were the only guests most of the time), mediocre food,high prices. Not at all better than the average and much heeper Thai-restaurant.

We did see all the good review the restaurant had in different news papers and decided to go there to celebrate a birthday with friends. We got the family menu with a spread from the hole menu card. But the food was below or of average standard. Only one dish we was good. The fish cakes was like rubber and... More

Booked the bed booth which was super cosy and romantic but also a little awkward to eat dinner with your legs up and lack of bench space. Wasn't overly thrilled with the menu selection but what we did order was brilliant and tasted great, very happy with the food. The prices are a little too high especially for the wines... More

Had a dinner for four yesterday and in short it was not worth the wait or the cost. The waiters are very stressed and are balancing to rudeness. Main course took over 1,5 hours to get, and was quite frankly not better than what the normal Thai join will serve you. Starters came when they where ready, and the raw... More

Located in the hearth of Frederiksberg, close to Forum metro station, Chai Wong restaurant is the best place if you want to try quality Asian food for reasonable price. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the prices are perfectly fit to what you get. The restaurant is very busy before and after events at Forum concert hall, so... More

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Frederiksberg
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
