    Beware of this restaurant!!! It's over priced, too salty, but definitely the worst of all is the TERRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. They make you change seats after already seating you because they want to compact everyone together for new guests even if you've already started eating. One person at our table didn't get their food until the rest of us were done eating and when they got it, the order was wrong and the manager haughtily asked "is this ok?" after already putting the plate down and barely offering an apology. We took the food because we didn't want to wait any longer. While we were having dessert, they would reach all across the table and under our arms to pick up dirty dishes even if we were literally eating. When we paid, we just asked for an explanation of why the food was so delayed and they offered us a mere 10% off the one dish that came out 30 minutes late, it was also the cheapest dish. Then, when we asked if they could take 10% off the whole check instead, they got super aggressive and loud and said they didn't even charge us for water when we didn't even get water to begin with. They spoke Thai to the other workers complaining about us and the workers all gave us nasty looks the whole time we were paying. They also charge a 3.75% transaction fee for foreign credit cards and don't even advertise it till you get the receipt. Overall, I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone.

    We came here late one night and the first thing the staff said was that they close in 40 minutes. OK, that's good to know but not extremely welcoming. We ate one main course each (no time for more), and the food was good. My husband ordered a beer and I ordered a glass of sparkling mineral water. I got it in a glass so I never saw the bottle. I don't think there was one, I think it was soda stream-water. I had expected a bottle, but since it was late I didn't question it. Time to pay - they charged 50 DKK for one glass of water!!!! I asked the staff if the price really was right, and yes obviously so. The beer was cheaper .... Never ever go there! To charge 50 DKK for a glass of single water is outrageous!

    Rainy day looking for something close to hotel. Poonchai is between train station and several Vesterbro hotels. Nice atmosphere, good fresh food, pleasant staff. Highly recommend.

    Nice food, decent portions, quick and friendly service, moderate prices (by Copenhagen standards, I.e. about 30€ per person including beer). In short, absolutely nothing to complain about.

    Small Thai restaurant billed as Best Thai in Copenhagen - so we tried. Good food and service. Pad Thai and spring rolls were both very good.

    I live in Los Angeles where we have some of the greatest Thai restaurants outside of Thailand, and I lived in Thailand, so I have experienced good Thai food. This place was at best, OK. The food need more flavor, and the service staff needed to pay a little bit more attention to their customers. They were so slow to serve us but quick to take our money. We had green curry which lacked flavor in my opinion. But perhaps I'm being a snob. The restaurant ambience was nice overall. They accommodated all of us including my friend who was exceptionally picky about her food. I hate bland Thai food. Oh well. Sorry.

    Just visited this restaurant. Had the green curry with salmon. It was exquisitely flavoured, all components cooked to perfection. I especially liked the vegetables. I thought the price, considering the quality of the food, was very reasonable. The massaman curry with chicken was a hit as well. Also the decor was very attractive. It looked as if much thought has gone into this. If I am ever back in Copenhagen, I would make a point of visiting Poon Chai again.

    It's in a great location by the CPH Central Train Station. Great staff. Lots of food options. They give a 10% discount during the rush hour time. If you're in the mood for Thai- I definitely recommend this place

    We were a group of friends coming from Malaysia into Copenhagen after a 13 hr flight with so-so bland airline food. The Thai food at Poon Chai was such a great delight to wake up the palate! Absolutely authentic Thai. Spicy where it needed to be, fragrant where it should be and aromatic all over. And served with Thai grace. The decor was pretty, inviting and cosy. We had the curry and it was delicious, as were all the other dishes we ordered. We fully recommend it to anyone. It is full on Thai!

    I've lived in Thailand for a year and ever since I came back in Europe I couldn't find any Thai restaurant that would serve some real authentic Thai food. However this place is own by Thai people and serve truly authentic Thai meals that amazed me. The place is warm and welcomed and the prices are average. Definitely would recommend it

    The food was fantastic. Every dish we ordered was fresh and delicious. The service was a bit slow to start with and hence the 4 stars rather than the 5. Definitely recommend

    Unfriendly waitress seated us on the table that was not ready for us to be seated. Dirty table with food stains. And dishes are not authentic. Expensive as well. Across my table I saw a pair of old couple digging out some dirt from their wine glasses. In short I will NEVER return to this restaurant.

    One of the best Thai restaurants I have been to. The food was delicious and the staff were great. Although it was very busy they did their best to accommodate everyone that came in. Definitely worth the money.

    Very close to the railway station and several hotels the restaurant serves traditional Thai food and is reasonably priced. We had no problem in obtaining a table on the two ocassions we ate here. The food was very good and the service rasonably fast.

    I only ordered one dish - Pad Thai noodles thinking that it can't go wrong. Sadly, it was totally dry and tasteless which was most disappointing. I kept wondering if it was perhaps cooked to suit local palate but its no excuse.

    Having been to nam this Thai restaurant and being disappointed as it was not real Thai food and my wife had had a similar disappointment when trying Thai food on paper island, we were glad to have a proper Thai tasting meal here. The chicken satay for starters was lovely and whilst I was not too fussed about my curry my wife enjoyed her beef noodle dish very much. I tried their royal beer and it was tasty

    We had the dinner for 3, including 2 appetizers and 3 entrees, with dessert or coffee. More food than we could eat. Our daughter has a nut allergy and my husband has sensitivity to some spices due to radiation, and they were very accommodating. We enjoyed our experience at Poonchai Thai and it was a 7 minute walk from our hotel. Rick Steves book recommended it. We made reservations and got right in on time.

    Poonchai provides decent Thai food and surroundings in the heart of the city. The food is nothing special and not a great value, but service was good. This is not a great value but seems fair and reliable given the location.

    This restaurant uses cheap material but sells food with high price. Lousy service, especially unfriendly to Asian customer. We asked to change our seat for not being next to toilet. The staff rejected with unpleasant attitude. Such a restaurant is not possible to survive in any Asian country.
