“It was worth everything we paid for and more!” I never write a review, but I just had to for this place. Sides Note* I am Asian-American from California, but am living in Copenhagen for 3 years. I loved this restaurant, the staff and the atmosphere. My boyfriend brought me here for my birthday. First, the servers was friendly and... More

We visited this restaurant with family. My wife had the lamb and I had the beef, with a bottle of white Riesling and red Shiraz. Everything is top-notch here, from the menu, the presentation and the quality of the food to the wine, the interior and the service. I will happily give this restaurant my very best recommendations, and hope... More

I used TripAdvisor to Find a restaurant naar my hotel and made a reservation at The Red Box. And I didn't realise i was in for a very nice surprise. The appearance from the street is a bit misleading as it looks like a narrow street cafe. But once the menu is served, the experience shifts completely. Wonderful tastes and... More

Went here with some old friends for a relaxing evening out. The venue had been recommended by a friend and we were all curious to see what was coming to us. A warm welcome by the owner who explained the concept. We went for the set menu. Hereafter we had a constant flow of wonderful Asian inspired dishes with a... More

The Red Box was a really pleasant surprise. I'm normally not the into Chinese food, which made this even a better surprise. The food is modern Chinese, and much lighter and simple in taste than regular Chinese. I would recommend the 5 small dishes for starters. Lots of seafood. For the main course I had the duck confit with a... More

We absolutely loved the food at the Red Box. It is fusion food (Asian and French) and I thought that it was very creative and delicious. The flavours are right on. The portions are on the small side, so beware if you are really hungry or have a big appetite. The atmosphere is really nice as well, and the service... More

We enjoyed a delicious menu at 'The Red Box': They have a limited food list with 4 options for starters, 4 options for main courses and 1 dessert. All those options revolve around a delicious blend between western and eastern cuisine. Guests can choose a 2 or 3 course meal. You start of with 2 tasty appetizers filled with different... More

Small resturant in a nice part of CPH. So make a reservation. Very nice food and people. They are strong in picking right wine for the meal. This resturant is value for money. "We'll be back"!

Thank Hengun
