Chicky Grill serves Danish comfort food in large portions at small prices. This little biks has been on Halmtorvet since 1978, and you can feel it when you step inside.

As a guest, you eat and drink in between and underneath large vessels of beer while having full visibility of the kitchen and brewery. Every Thursday to Saturday you can enjoy dinner from selected POP UP restaurants. Keep a look out for events and new menus. The kitchen is open from 17.30-22.00.


At Gaza Grill,  you will find a large à la carte menu consisting of organic, Arabic dishes.
