Save at restaurants, bars, cafés in Denmark

  • When a friend suggests going out for coffee or a meal, make sure you have done your research first!  A cup of coffee or tea can cost you as much as 35 kroner and a glass of beer 60 kroner.  Restaurant prices can be astronomical.
  • Check out the many restaurants listed in aok.dk and their recommendations. Here are some ethnic restaurant possibilities:
    1.    Indian and Pakistani: Restaurant Sahil (Havnegade 33), Indian Corner  www.indiancorner.dk, Ali Baba http://www.alibaba-restaurant.dk/
    2.    Thai: Thai Pan www.thaipan.dk, or Thai Sweet Basil (Grønnegade 33)
    3.    Vietnamese: Viet-Nam Nam www.viet-namnam.dk, Restaurant Saigon Quan   www.saigonquan.dk
    4.    Turkish: Ankara for lunch or dinner buffet http://www.restaurant-ankara.dk (two locations)
    5.    Japanese: Sushi Time, Selfish (for take away) www.selfish.dk
    6.    Ethiopian: Addis Mesof (Fredensgade 11)
    7.    Vegetarian: Riz Raz for lunch or dinner buffet www.rizraz.dk (2 locations)
  • Pre-function! Enjoy a glass of wine in a park or by a lake near the restaurant before your meal.
  • In bars, you can nurse one beer all evening – no pressure to order more.  Leaving “small change” is nice, but not necessary. In restaurants, you really and truly are not expected to tip, unless you receive extraordinary service
  • A great deal for beer - Carlsberg Brewery Visitors Centre –  very interesting self-guided tour and two draft beers, all for 60 kr. [www.visitcarlsberg.dk]
