You might not expect to find too many decent restaurants on this street – functional ones perhaps – but be prepared for Shezan to confound your expectations. I went there on a Friday evening soon after arriving in Copehangen, and was pleasantly surprised by the spinach main dish and Peshwari naan I chose for my quick post-flight meal. Lovely, friendly service too.

I went back two evenings later for a more substantial meal, an onion bhaji and a couple of veggie dishes to accompany a pilau rice and all was really, really good. It had obviously been prepared with skill and care, resulting in a flavoursome set of dishes with quick responsive service.

If you're staying in a hotel near to Copenhagen Central, and you want a good meal, you could do a lot, lot worse than popping into the friendly Shezan.

Recommended.

Shezan is an old pakistani restaurant, which lost its shine and now are striving to keep up. For me, as vegan, the menu offers few vegetarian choices and even less vegan. I chose a vegetable soup (specially specified, without cream) and Palak Aloo (potatoes with spinach) and Rice Pilao (rice with vegetables), very simplistic menu which, theoretically should not be a problem.
Vegetable soup: strong flavor of chicken broth. In a vegetable soup? Yes, it was chicken soup from which they removed the chicken! Really, now in 21st century???
The Palak Aloo was unusually spicy and the so-called rice with vegetables was just rice. With rare beans. Almost none. But costed more.
The bill unrealistic high, compared with the fact that i coudn't eat almost anything.

Good food, with a good selection for meat and vegetarian lovers. We came here later in the evening as our flight was delayed and we're still able to be seated.
