We find this hotel in our guide book and decide to give it a try. It's a vegetable only buffet.....for about $20.00 . it located just off the pedestrian street and about 20 minute or less from our hotel. It's pretty full when we arrive at about 7pm ...must be packed during summer. It turns out to be pretty good. Lots to choose from ....nice salad choices and a veggie lasagne , falafel a and cooked vegetable medley. The wine was good too. would definitely return.
Favorite Dish: Liked the salads best...lots if variety
It's not completely vegetarian but its strong middle eastern bent means Riz Raz is a haven for vegetarians in this meat friendly city. It's also very good value, with an all you can eat buffet to tuck into. It's clean and bright with friendly staff and the food is decent as well. Sure I've eaten better falafel, in places like Israel and Jordan, but I'd be surprised if you can find much better in Northern Europe.
There are two branches in the city, the one on Kompagniestraede is the one I visited and more vegetarian focused. The other one has more meat.
Riz raz is a cheap place loceated right in the center of town.
It has mediteranian style food, including a cheap and tasty vegetarian buffet.
If you eat meat they also have good meat dishes.
This place has been a fvorite among backpackers and families for many years, because of their low prices and casual atmosphere.
There are two Riz Raz restaurants in Copenhagen and they are both located one block from the main pedestrian street "Strøget".
Favorite Dish: I always go for the cheap and tasty buffet.
This restaurant was recommended to us by friends. We all went there on Saturday evening for an early dinner. They have a vegetarian buffet with a salad bar and they also have "sticks", that is, roasted meat on skewers that you can order as an add on to the buffet or as the main meal itself. The buffet is 79 dkk before 4 p.m. and 89 after 4 p.m. and if you get a "stick" as an add on, it only cost another 30. If you order them as a main dish they will cost much more but you also get more.
We went for the buffet and a stick of meat which comes in various types and spices. It was a good combination, with the fresh salads and some hot dishes and veggies. They do have a few other things on the menu but the real attraction here is the buffet, which is always good value because you can go back for more.
Favorite Dish: Vegetarian buffet with roasted meat on skewers added on.
This is a friendly restaurant with a terrific vegetarian buffet. You can also order meat, fish, etc. from the menu, but you may find the many mediterranean dishes are tempting and satisfying enough without it. Not too loud during the week, but it does get crowded on the weekends.
Favorite Dish: I loved the cheese-baked eggplant, tomato and squash dish.
Nice restaurant that serves Mediterranean food. They have probably the cheapest buffet in Copenhagen, you'll get a lunch buffet for 69 DKK and an evening buffet for 79 DKK (August 2008 prices). I had the lunch buffet with hot and cold dishes (incl. all kinds of salads, rice, couscous, lasagna, falafels, pasta and pizza). The hot dishes were OK, (esp. the lasagna was so yummy!), but I preferred the cold ones. To be honest I didn't recognize half of the cold dishes available, but tried everything and liked them all!
You pay right after you order (they bring you the bill with your drink, which by the way is not incl. in the buffet) and then you can eat as much as you like. The price is unbeatable for Copenhagen. There are two RIZRAZ restaurants in Copenhagen, one in Kompagnistraede (near Stroeget) and the other in Kanikkestraede near the round tower. I had my lunch in Kompagnistraede.
This restaurant does a great Veggie buffet - although they do have meat dishes. I love food like this where you can pick and choose lots of different dishes.
The decor of the restaurant was nice, staff were good, it was clean and very popular!
Favorite Dish: I love salads so I got tucked into the greek salad and cous cous on offer.
There were so many different items I can't recall what they all were!
It was perfect for us as we didn't eat meat at the time so there were lots of options.
Mediterranian cuisine – huge vegetarian buffet at DKK 69/79 (€9/10.50) – lunch/dinner – but also plenty of great meat dishes on the menu, that all include the buffet as sidedishes. I usually have the lamb-shawarma – which (at €18) is the most expensive item on the menu.
The lunch time RizRaz Buffet costs 59DKK and consists of mainly cold salads, but also some hot dishes like pizza, pasta and falafel etc. The selection is very good and everything is fresh and tasty. Add a Turborg beer for 24DKK and you've got a cheap feast by Danish standards!
Favorite Dish: Most of the food was fresh and the sauces and dressings were homemade.
With a superb buffet, with a selection of salads, lasagne, pasta and plenty more, this cost approx. DK59
This is a chain restaurant, the one we selected had an al fresco dining area to the fore of the premises and to the rear was a garden which we opted for as we were a fair sized party of people.
We enjoyed lunch here & it was great value as a buffet for DKK59
The selection was vast, various salads, selection of vegetables, rice, chickpeas, tomatoe & marscopone pasta, spinach & ricotta lasgne as well as pizza
There are outside tables & a courtyard in the chain we visited
In the evenings blankets & outdoor heaters still enable those that wish to sit outside
Favorite Dish: The spinach & ricotta lasagne
RizRaz is that rare thing in Copenhagen - a good-value, cheap restaurant. It's the buffet menu that is best value and which attracts most people. For 59 Krone at lunch or 69 in the evening you get an all you can eat vegetarian buffet. The choice was pretty good as well with salad, pasta, vegetable lasagne, falafal, hummus, rice, etc.
The beer was good value too, the staff were friendly and I quite liked the decor. We sat in the interior though there were plenty of tables out front. There are two RizRaz restaurants in the city centre and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a filling, inexpensive meal.
Our first night in town and we head into town for a meal at this restuarant.
It's a smorgasboard style. So one just gets up and picks from the table whenever they are after more.
But be warned... there's no meat. It's Vego.
After the initial shock of realising it was a vegetarian I had been brought to I sat down and really enjoyed the meal. It was a chance to try vegetarian food with a Danish spin on things.
This restaurant is famous as offering a wode range of vegetarian buffet includina salads from Italy, Greece and Turkey. For a piece of meat you can choose from menu when the vegetarian buffet is also included.
Popular and tasty.
Open all days between 1130 -2400
This place exists in two premises and is in just about every guide book imaginable about Copenhagen. The reason? It is dirt cheap for what you get. Whilst budget eating in Copenhagen normally means a dodgy "chicken box" or a shawarma/falafel or Danish hot dog, this place has a whole buffet for less than DKK 80 (price varies depending on what time of day it is). Whilst not as good as food down the Mediterranean, it is still clearly inspired by it and definately good value. Everything is vegetarian (apart from the odd dish in the evening a la carte) and most people come for the buffet. Both places are victims of their own success and can be crowded at times as they are in popular downtown locations, and this can make staff slightly stressed but you should soon find a table. There is everything from small pizza slices and pasta salads to bean salads, hummous and indian inspired dishes. The one near Rundetårn is spacier and has better service whilst the one near Rådhuspladsen still feels cosier.
