Restaurant Tokyo is a very nice place for friends/family gathering. The environment is nice there, even provide tatami for you to sit and experience real Japanese style, but a bit too dark of the light. The services are great, staffs serve you for almost everything and they are polite. I think it is authentic, even some Japanese had dinner there.... More

I like to go to this place. Sometimes we can feel tired of walking upstair to be able to get in a restaurant, I feel it fits this place. The restaurant is located on the second floor. It keeps us out of the noice from the street. I like to sit on the floor and sometimes chatting with the owner.... More

We came to try the shabu shabu, and did not leave disappointed, as it was excellent. Waiters were so nice and subtle and here you really want to tip well, because service is outstanding. Atmosphere is nice, calm and cheerful. Definitely a place to dine several times, bravo.

Squatting on tatami mats at low tables (they have normal tables too), attentive and friendly service makes this a cozy and informal place for families and friends. Sashimi and sukiyaki are ample and delicious. Very good value for money.

Been here twice and left with a big food belly. The Sukiyaki is excellent and I highly recommend it! Don't be turned off by the shabby stairs leading up to the restaurant it is absolutely worth it.

A (tasty) bit of Japan in central Copenhagen! This is said to be the first Japanese restaurant in Denmark. It's situated on the first floor of a residential building in Vesterbro. You can choose to sit either in the Japanese or western part of the restaurant- the Japanese part have the best view;-) Very nice staff and very good and... More

Maybe my husband & me took a lot at lunch time, we ordered few simple dishes for dinner at this restaurant. We ordered chilled... More

This is a very authentic Japanese restaurant. There was no English menu but in Danish the japanese dishes are pretty similar text. So if you know your Japanese meals, not too much of a problem. Style authentic and not dissimilar to meals I've eaten in Japan. Not a very good wine selection. Enjoyed the service, ambience and food.

The menus are really nice, tempura and sashimi are our favorites, we have been coming for years and it is the oldest Japanese restaurant in Scandinavia, and to celebrate its 50 year came a television crew from Japan one night - really nice and freindly.

Staying in Frederiksberg

Neighbourhood Profile
Located between Noerrebro and Vesterbro you’ll find Frederiksberg, which is actually a municipality in itself but completely surrounded by Copenhagen. Here there are several fine theaters, from the experimental to the great Det Ny Teater (The New Theater) which specializes in transcribing the great London and New York musicals into Danish, and has done so for several years with huge success. In Frederiksberg you’ll find Denmark’s most beautiful (and expensive) city villas. These 4-5 square miles form the Beverly Hills of Copenhagen. Here you’ll also find Frederiksberg Have (Garden) which sports huge outdoor concerts, from classical to electronic dance music. To top it off, dining options range from cozy family restaurants to some of the area’s most trendy cafés.
