Wolt App: Our Favorite Food Delivery in Copenhagen

Please note: due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Wolt have added a contactless delivery option on all platforms, so it is as easy as possible to have deliveries left at your door or entrance. Simply update your iOS or Android app so you can choose contactless delivery at checkout, right after the delivery details.

According to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the Food Authority, there is no evidence that food is a source of transmission of Covid-19. Wolt have informed all customers, courier and restaurant partners about the recommendations to minimize human contact through food preparation and the delivery process.

Customers are kindly asked to

– Please consider using contactless delivery
Thoroughly wash your hands with soap and warm water for 30 seconds before and after you receive your delivery

If you’re in need of the best food delivery service in Copenhagen, look no further than Wolt app. Although there are a few services that offer takeaway and delivery options around the city, none of them have the huge selection and high quality of Wolt; they provide everything from delicious greasy burgers to Michelin star restaurants. All you have to do? Just eat!

Launched in Helsinki in 2014, the food delivery app now delivers to 20 cities from over 1400 restaurants, and that number continues to grow. The service is a simple one: order food directly from an app on your phone and pay via credit card. The food will then be picked up at the restaurant by a Wolt courier and brought to your location. The couriers are on bike and travel with large blue heated containers emblazoned with the Wolt logo.

In Tallinn, Wolt is currently experimenting with self-driving delivery robots, but this is not something that has been rolled out in other cities.

Any restaurant can apply to be part of the Wolt service, and because their goal is to cater to a diverse range of food desires, the selection is extremely wide and well-curated.

Wolt currently operates in Copenhagen, Helsinki, Stockholm, Trondheim, Prague, Budapest, Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius, Warsaw, and many others cities. You can see the full list here.

Wolt delivery we recommend:

Pizza in Copenhagen


BEHOV series up delicious, classic pizzas made in wood ovens. Their ingredients are top-notch and you can design your own pizza, so you get the exact toppings you want.



For pizza that’s a little different, check out Neighbourhood. Their ultra thin crust is more of a crunchy cracker-like base than a typical pizza, and the real focus is on the organic, seasonal toppings.


Burgers in Copenhagen


Delicious fast food-style burgers, fried chicken sandwiches, crispy fries, and milkshakes. The food is greasy in just the way you want but not overly so, and available all over the city. Their veggie burger is delicious!


Sushi in Copenhagen


Considered one of the best sushi spots in Copenhagen, Damindra offers nigiri, futomaki, uramaki, and hosomaki rolls, as well as a number of sides like miso soup and edamame beans. The sushi is fairly classic but beautifully made, with fresh ingredients and great flavor combinations.


Vegetarian & Vegan in Copenhagen


Fresh bowls full of veggies and fish, meat, or tofu; if you’re feeling like a lighter meal, MyPoké has great options.



Souls may be mostly vegan, but their philosophy is that everyone should enjoy their food, regardless of whether they’re vegan or not. They do a mean veggie burger, as well as delicious brunch and drinks.


Mexican food in Copenhagen

Pastor Tacos

Tasty tacos made by three Mexican siblings who wanted to bring a real taste of their country to Copenhagen. You can also get burritos and gringas. Expert tip: definitely get the side of refried beans with corn chips!


Thai food in Copenhagen

Kiin Kiin

It may not be your average Thai restaurant (and the prices aren’t average either), but for those you want to get a little posh with their takeaway, it doesn’t get much better. Kiin Kiin is the only Thai restaurant outside of Thailand to have a Michelin star, and their incredible, artistic food is something to behold. They’ve put together this special takeout menu; get out the fancy china for this one!


A neighborhood favorite loved by locals for its fresh ingredients and hard-working owner. Takeaway gets a bad rep for being unhealthy, but Ranee only uses the highest quality, like sashimi-grade fish, to ensure her meals are full of vitamins and minerals. Ranee’s also serves organic wine, beer, and soft drinks, along with freshly-ground coffee from Riccos and Jasmin & Oolong tea from A.C. Perch’s Thehandel.

Dessert in Copenhagen

American Pie Company

Sometimes you just need a slice of pie. This American-style pie shop serves a rotating menu of seasonal pies, as well as a few mainstays (apple pie, for example). They taste homebaked and the flavors are fantastic. American Pie Company also serves savory hand pies.



Nicecream serves vegan ice cream and acai bowls. Vegan does not mean boring; they go all-out with their flavor profiles and toppings. Regardless of whether you’re vegan, Nicecream will satisfy your sweets craving.


Ramen in Copenhagen

Papa Ramen

Ramen delivery? Yes please! Papa Ramen serves classic bowls as well as vegetarian and vegan options. They also have a number of side dishes like gyoza, wantons, and bao.
