Looking for some comfort food of BBQ pork rice and came across the restaurant in Trip Advisor which was close to our hotel. This is a small restaurant and while the menu was like any other Chinese restaurant we chose the BBQ pork and Roast Duck rice combination. The food came out pretty quickly but unfortunately the quality does not... More

If you're craving authentic Chinese food that is not watered down to meet the local taste buds, this is the place to go. Take out or eat in, no nonsense and good food.

Small and narrow, not child friendly, bad service (especially the female waitress), ordered duck but not really good, but delicious lamb noodle soup, fried chicken with sweet and sour soup, and fried been with chili and garlic.

No one was there to attend the customers, so we headed to an empty table, who knew the female server yelled at us and ushered us to another table. We were given a menu and waited for about 10mins yet no one bothered to take orders despite informing the owner. Definitely not going to pay for a service like that

We started with two dim sum orders, shiumai and hagow, followed by a beef stir-fry, which was not exceptional, and Hong Kong duck. Be warned, Hong Kong duck is not like the Peking duck we expected and has different accompaniments. The ever polite staff provided hoisin sauce for us, on request. Service was quite prompt, although the restaurant was packed.

I used to love Magasasa. There had not been a time when I visited Copenhagen and not dropped by to this small restaurant behind CPH central station. But, sadly, they might have changed the cook since the food does not taste the same anymore. I found out sometime ago that they have two cooks. one morning shift and one night... More

Again good food & good service. If you don't want an european version of chinese food then you are at the right place. Go for it; you would love it.

We found this place tucked away almost right behind the main station. We'd read good reviews & totally agree, having now eaten there. We were pleased to find, on entering, that about 50% of diners were Asians which always seems a good advertisements. The portions are sizeable and good value. And as well as many 'old favorites' for international palates... More

We loved the food there! The price is not too expensive (except for the drinks), but the food has a really high quality! We tried beef, pork and chicken, and they were delicious! The service is also good and they can speak Danish and English! :) we recommend!

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
