It was good here, authentic, well made and tasty Thai

A bit haphazard in serving - the table needed a wipe and the servers shout the number you chose and hopefully you'll get the correct meal. But other than that very authentic and well prepared.

Such a simplistic, cute, little and lovely place to eat really flavoursome, authentic Thai food. Krua Thai is near the city centre in Reykjavik and I have to say, it was the tastiest food I had in Iceland. The portions are a fair size and there are many options from meat, fish and veg to eat. The gentleman who served... More

Krua Thai is about the closest thing to a "deal" on food in Reykjavik. Not only is it a deal, but Krua Thai is good! My buddy enjoyed their chicken pad Thai and spicy cashew chicken. He also had their popcorn shrimp. Everything was decently portioned and tasty! There was not a lot of heat to the meal, but a... More

Its a strange way to serve food - basically a take-away counter inside a small restaurant. The food was good, and portions adequate. Not a must-visit, but a welcome change to the more expensive restaurants around town.

What a pleasant surprise! We'd have probably stayed with local food but having heard so much about the Thai community in Reykjavik (who knew?? and how/why the heck did they go from warm and comfy thailand to bitterly cold iceland??) we decided to try it. Liked it so much we made it our last stop after ring road tour a... More

In a very expensive city, we were lucky enough to stumble across this delightful and hidden restaurant. Very popular with the locals, the restaurant offers take away or dining in. At around 3000ISK for two people, including soft drinks, this restaurant is one not to be missed!

We ate here with my girlfriend as we both love thai. The prices were good, food quality was great. Tasty and a lot. We couldn`t finish them. Their customer service is amazing, we had just 1 issue with my food, but it wasn`t anyone`s fault, a little visitor in my food only, which probably got into it while cooking. They... More

We were a little bit sick of fish and standard Icelandic food, so my friend and I decided to try Krua Thai. The meals were delicious and huge - great value as well. I highly recommend it for something a bit different in Reykjavik.
