Beware of this restaurant!!! It's over priced, too salty, but definitely the worst of all is the TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. They make you change seats after already seating you because they want to compact everyone together for new guests even if you've already started eating....More

Nice food, decent portions, quick and friendly service, moderate prices (by Copenhagen standards, I.e. about 30€ per person including beer). In short, absolutely nothing to complain about.

It's in a great location by the CPH Central Train Station. Great staff. Lots of food options. They give a 10% discount during the rush hour time. If you're in the mood for Thai- I definitely recommend this place

We were a group of friends coming from Malaysia into Copenhagen after a 13 hr flight with so-so bland airline food. The Thai food at Poon Chai was such a great delight to wake up the palate! Absolutely authentic Thai. Spicy where it needed to...More
