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 than the lean red one ;) They also have an extensive variety of sakes -... More

This place is mostly take-away, but you can also eat there. It is Japanese owned and run and the style is very close to sushi bars in Japan and the Sushi was also the closed to the real Japan thing that I have had in Denmark.

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.

This is easily the best sushi that I have eaten in recent memory. If I lived in Copenhagen I would spend far too much money here. Although this is primarily a takeaway restaurant, there are two tables and the sushi bar for dining in. Go ahead and treat yourself. You won't regret it. far too much money here. If only.

I have visited Selfish on a regular basis since the opening in 2001. This place is without doubt THE sushi place in Copenhagen. The fact that the place is very often visited by resident japanese people coming by to eat and have a chat with the chef / owner Kaulo speaks for itself.

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!

I went to Selfish twice and it is one of the best sushi experience I had. Makis and Nigiris were wonderful, the fish is so fresh and well prepared that you always want more. The X-Large menù is perfect if it is the only thing you want to eat. The nigiri a la carte is something to try, because the... More

About 10-15 of us from the University get sushi from here every Friday for our weekly group lunch. The others have tried every sushi place within range and say that this is the best of the lot ... and I have to agree that it is very good indeed. My wife has lived in Japan and is a bit snooty...

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Noerrebro
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 tombstones of famous Danes, such as writer Hans Christian Anderson and physicist Niels Bohr. Inner Noerrebro is also home to one af the most popular theatres in Copenhagen, called Noerrebro Theatre. It shows both popular musicals and plays, as well as productions of a more experimental nature.
