I went to this Japanese take-away just because was really close to my hotel, but it was indeed a really pleasant surprise! The personnel was kind and the quality of sushi really high! Literally delicious! I strongly recommend to try if you have the chance!:)

Ordered a large takeaway platter which was more than adequate for 3 people. The cuts of the various seafood pieces were superb and the rice was expertly prepared and hanging together nicely in the wraps. This must be the best sushi I have ever tasted!...More

We had a take-away order from Selfish on a Friday night. The order went down correctly, everything was there, ready in time and the personnel was very friendly. The food, despite the hype and raving reviews we read here, was just average. We had several...More

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...More

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
