This is one of the worst restaurant I have ever been to in my life. When we arrived the staff were eating in the middle of the restaurant. They seemed annoyed the moment we came in. To order we had to go over to them while they were eating to get their attention. We did not get the food at... More

Welcoming and clean restaurant, full with a coach of chinese tourists, regardless we still had excellent service and when we ordered 2 dishes each, we were gently informed that the portions were large and we should start with 1 each. So we ordered a single dish each and struggled to finish the delicious food, no nordic weeds here. Will be... More

The food arrived fast and it felt like they had microwaved some old leftovers. Really boring food with no vegtables :(

This restaurant use to be a fantastic place but new ownership have recently scrunch the place and it is a horror to visit. The service was rude and unengaged, the starter was completely uneatable and so was all other dishes. The starters came on separate times and when I pointed out to the staff that I was not happy they... More

I have been to Hong Kong many times and I appreciate good Cantonese food. However, I was very disappointed with this restaurant. Firstly, you will be greeted by a fish tank in the entrance, blocking the view of the dining table from the outside (how about a hostess stand instead?) I had the four course set menu. First was a...

Authentic Chinese restaurant and food in Copenhagen, delicious dim sum (for lunch), fresh and well prepared seafood and various other courses for every palette. Me and my friends go to Canton regularly and have never left the place disappointed or hungry ;-) Good value for money!

Good location opposite Comfort Hotel. Food was average but good portions and reasonably priced for Copenhagen. We were after a quick lunch after a long walk and weren't disappointed. Recommend the hot and sour soup, very delicious.

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
