A Slice of Hanoi in Copenhagen

In the bike friendly city of Copenhagen that reflects the true definition of a Scandinavian society, there's a place where you can see and feel a part of Hanoi's vibrant street life, literally, right in the city center.

It may look like you are wandering the streets of Hanoi and about to treat yourself with some delicious Banh Mi, but this is Europe. It's funny seeing these iconic plastic chairs and tables in the heart of the Danish capital. With a playful interior and decoration channeling the streets of Vietnam, District Tonkin, a Vietnamese restaurant in Copenhagen is where you can actually experience a part of Vietnamese street culture while in Europe.

The restaurant peddles fresh, gut-filling bánh mì (Vietnamese baguettes), stuffed with coriander, fresh chilli and combos like Vietnamese sausage with marinated pork, homemade pâté and BBQ sauce. Their menu also includes many other gorgeous Vietnamese street food.



The vibrant city of Hanoi has inspired the decor. Outside you will find the charismatic blue and red plastic chairs, those you can see everywhere in Hanoi.


District Tonkins is located on Mikkel Bryggers Gade, not far from the always busy street, Strøget, and close to Copenhagen City Hall Square. They have a second restaurant on Dronningens Tværgade – the street which connects the well-visited Kongens Have and Bredgade. You can find either places easily, then enjoy the beautiful combination between the two cultures of the two capital cities.
