I went to Ban Gaw with friends from Thailand who recommended that we went there. I was thinking that if they recommend the place, the food must be really good. And it sure was! Authentic Thai dishes, fantastic flavours, and very nice, smiling, and polite...More

A cozy restaurant with authentic Thai flavours in an up and coming Copenhagen neighborhood. Everything is served with delicacy and tastes amazing. I recommend the spicy prawn soup as a starter and a curry as a main. Service is also very good. Major credit cards...More

Best thai restaurant I’ve been to!! Food was delicious and in large portions, really good tea and some traditional beer. Service was great and felt really cosy. Will definitely try again!!! I recommend it for an authentic experience!

Very friendly staff. Don't expect to be smothered by the waitstaff. They will come when the food is ready and whenever you call them for help. The food is great. Good prices. Try the traditional pad Thai with beef. Awesome spring rolls. There's a great...More

Ate here on my own during June, nice enough restaurant with friendly attentive staff. I had a prawn dish in a red curry sauce with obligatory rice. Filled a gap but didn't set itself apart from any other mainstream Thai place in the area.
