Premise
“The hotel has two restaurants and a cocktail/piano bar on the top floor. Restaurant Sarfalik, upscale dining, offers an innovative restaurant experience which combines the best of the Greenlandic and the global kitchen. The menu reflects the catch and produce of the season. A HEREFORD BEEFSTOUW - The Nuuk branch of a relatively upmarket Danish steakhouse chain manages to give some atmosphere to an inherently characterless room by creative use of space breaks, chunky wooden furniture and flickering oil lamps. ”

“Behind uninviting metal doors, warm soft lighting and oriental embroideries welcome you into Greenland's best and most genuine Thai restaurant. Very generous portions but very mildly spiced despite being labelled 'hot'. Try the Greenlandic coffee!”
