Inside Noma : One of the World’s Best Restaurants


Located in Copenhagen, Denmark, Noma is the birthplace of the modern Scandinavian movement that’s sweeping the globe.

The Story

The Scandi gastronomy movement that has taken hold across the world started in a renovated warehouse in Copenhagen in 2003 when René Redzepi took it upon himself to revive and update Nordic food using contemporary cooking methods. Noma has since gone on to change the way dining rooms operate and put foraging for ingredients firmly in the spotlight.

The Vibe

Chefs bring out the dishes themselves to guests in the relaxed and casual dining room that has views over Copenhagen’s quayside. The stripped-back interior matches Redzepi’s naturalistic style of cooking.


The Menu

Vegetables and foraged ingredients take centre stage. Simple-sounding dishes such as apples and lemon thyme, cabbage leaves and white currants, new Danish potato and nettle and sliced raw squid and kelp provide explosions of taste and texture.


At the end of February 2017, Noma will serve its last meal. A little over a month later, the restaurant’s entire staff will move to the Mexican resort town of Tulum to open an outdoor restaurant, temporarily, deep in the jungle. For seven weeks they will serve Noma’s interpretation of tacos and mole. Then, in June, they will return to Copenhagen, in a new location.  

Redzepi has also successfully taken Noma to London, Tokyo and Sydney.
