Riz Raz in Kompagnistræde is one of a pair of restaurants which are both very popular. Both are in perfect locations for tired shoppers and tourists.
Riz Raz is famous for its reasonably priced Mediterranean buffet, although these days the concept has been updated and includes inspiration from all over the world. The buffet is still popular, and dishes such as tzatziki, lasagne, falafel, hummus and pizza which can always be found on the buffet have been supplemented with asian salads and noodle dishes, indian curries and a few Danish dishes too. There are lots of vegetables, the food is generally very healthy and the only oil used is olive oil.
As well as the self service buffet, you can order from a large list of other dishes such as marinated chicken, shellfish or fish. There is also a brunch, burgers, sandwiches and a large choice of desserts. There are children's menus for the smaller guests, who also get a very reasonable, lower price at the buffet.
The wine list includes a small selection of Italian whites, a French rosé and a couple of heavy Californian reds. There is also beer from local microbrewery Nørrebros Bryghus, organic juice, bottomless soda, smoothies and a good handful of cocktails. The price level for food and drinks is very reasonable. There are tables outside when the weather is good, and there is a constant stream of shoppers and tourists for people-watching - but you can also sit in the cosy, heated courtyard at the back away from the hustle and bustle - although the street is almost traffic-free. With its numerous semi-private nooks and crannies inside, the restaurant is ideal for small parties too.
There is a lounge for drinks and coffee upstairs. The new menu at Riz Raz is the work of Christina Bredahl, who previously worked at Meyers and Jan Friis Mikkelsen. There is a sister restaurant in Store Kannikestræde, called Riz Raz Steaks'n'Veggies, which as the name suggest offers more of a steakhouse menu, but it also has a buffet with lots of healthy food.
Takeaway is also available.
