A very nice Vietnamese restaurant with good and tasty dishes. A lot of fresh ingredients cooked very well and with a subtle taste. The personel is very friendly as well. You can eat at a table but a seat at the bar is maybe even a bigger treat.

Excellent reception and very friendly staff. Great ambiance. The food unfortunately is not that great. No Vietnamese authentic experience, probably due to the fact that most of the kitchen staff seems to be Danish. At best it's an attempt at fusion kitchen, but not a very successful one.

We had a first takeaway from Lele and were quite pleased, as the food is authentic and delicious, even it is not cheap. You easily pay 250kr per person, but it's worth it. Warmly recommend the mixed platters they sell as menues!

I am here for the 5. time. I love it. The service is Nice and attentive without being pushy :-) in effekt, I tipped. The food is sublime - and I am not convinced that wine goes well with any Asian food - in this case, Vietnamese. I recommend beer rather than wine. The location is perfect and the interior... More

A restaurant complemented by 2 take-away outlets in the city. The restaurant is located in the new hipster area in Vesterbro Copenhagen. This was the 4th visit to the restaurant. In general the food is fresh and tasty. The Asian flavour is visible, but the cocking is adjusted to meet a more mainstream audience. You can call it modern Asian... More

Really nice and tasty food. I had the ceviche and caramelized pork; both were lovely. The charming Argentinian (maybe Uruguayan 🤔) waitress makes the whole experience even better.

Other commentators have noted the issue with the service and I can agree that that remains the biggest issue for the restaurant. The food is of good quality, and the flavours are perfectly good, but the cost (poor value for money) and the service are the two issues that knock this down to "Average" overall, which is a shame.

This place was recommended by the hotel. The service was so slow. We sat for nearly 30 minutes waiting for a glass of water! The waiters had little knowledge on the food and wines. The ones that did have the knowledge seemed very disinterested. The food was very average. They use the same ingredients in most dishes!...Not so fusion! The... More
