Located in the middle of Copenhagen, on Holbergsgade very close to Nyhavn, in an exciting neighborhood where the pulse of the city can really be felt. Damindra serves delicious and delicate food based on the fine culinary heritage of Japan. You'll find kushiyaki (cooked on bamboo sticks), tempura (deep fried), teppanyaki (cooked on a hot metal plate) and a great selection of sushi.
The chefs at Damindra are also always working on experimenting and developing new dishes, mixing their Scandinavian heritage with the Japanese legacy. Because it is Japanese, you can expect a high standard of service and presentation. The dining itself is an experience, from the relaxed ambience to the way the food is served. In Japanese cooking, the quality of the ingredient is paramount, and Damindra does not disappoint.
The menu is always changing, both with the seasons and with innovations from the chefs. Some dishes are based on seasonal Danish and Scandinavian fish and ingredients that have been enhanced by the Japanese cooking style.
There are a number of set menus that allow you to experience an excellent variety of flavors. Try the Deluxe menu (with a minimum of two people) for DKK 340, that features six courses ranging from miso soup to sizzling sashimi and nigiri among other things.
Head chef Taka Nishimura arrived in 2009 and has lived and worked in Italy and Australia, having trained as a kaiseki chef in Japan. Kaiseki is a traditional form of Japanese cooking involving many small and intricate courses, and is very exclusive and often expensive.
Damindra is an excellent example of the modern Japanese cuisine on offer in Copenhagen.
