Stumbled across this restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. Good portions, plenty of veg and meat in the main course dishes. Overall a lovely meal and reasonably priced.

“Friendly staff, shame about the food”
Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

Cosy restaurant, friendly staff but disappointing food. Both mains were very (very) salty and not very pleasant. prawns seemed tough and didn't seem fresh. Price felt expensive for two mains, 1 soft drink and 1 beer was 450 dkk.

Reviewed 16 August 2013

We ate at the Poon Chai on a wednesday evening,the place wasn't that busy.The service was prompt,friendly and helpful.They provided glasses of water with out being asked.The menu was in 3 languages including english. The dishes we ordered arrived hot and were tasty (all or most dishes come with rice included in the price).There was draught beer as well as bottled. All in all a very reasonable priced meal

“Great place in a storm”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

We were caught out in a down pour on arrival in at our hotel in Copenhagen. We dashed into this place nearby which was really busy - we got the last table. Service was prompt and friendly and the food was nice, hot and freshly cooked. Together with a bottle of house wine, we had a tasty and reasonably priced meal. We paid in cash and no one chased after us.

“Beware of crooked and rude staff”
Reviewed 29 June 2013

Avoid this place like the plague - the nice food is not worth the hassle. We had nice food, paid our bill, chatted a while and then left. Then the waitress and chef ran down the road after us telling us we hadn't paid. They forced us to return and we had to call the police to help us. It took half an hour and camera surveillance footage to convince the very rude Thai owners that we had indeed paid (despite having a receipt and showing the change they had given us). Rather than apologize and offer compensation, the Thai owners shrugged their shoulders and said half of their customers cheat them. If you go here, make sure you have witnesses that will testify you have paid. The staff can turn from smiley people to very nasty people very quickly!
