A Great Place For Some Delicious Thai Food.

While walking around the Old Harbor of Reykjavik, we stumbled upon this small Thai Restaurant. We knew that we should be eating at an Authentic Icelandic restaurant, but our craving for 'comfort food' surpassed all other ideas. Arriving before the lunch rush, we ordered Tom Yum Goong with... read more

We were staying around the corner so we went for a take away as it was nearly closing time (9 o'clock, this is Iceland). The good was standard Thai fare, but well priced and tasty.

Run by a Thai family, the food is original and pretty good. The restaurant is quite small -something like eight tables or so - and has good atmosphere, with an audience of mainly young locals and tourists. Nothing fancy: you order and the counter and the food is brought to you at your table. They do take out, with a... More

On a whim I decided to eat here after I noticed it over the road from a museum I was visiting and looked it up on TripAdvisor to find good reviews. I found the service to be friendly but a bit slow at times. The food itself--I got the green curry--was delicious. While I went on my own I think... More

The way to eat here, is to experience one of the classic Thai curries with an Islandic twist. Panaang Curry with Lamb and Yellow Curry with coconut milk with crispy fresh cod were both both full of flavor and so fresh! Highly recommend these dishes! So tasty.

After being somewhat disappointed at the high end, high expense restaurants that I went to in Reykjavik on previous evenings, I googled "cheap eats Reykjavik". Krua Thai was on someone's list for best cheap eats. We are not huge fans of Thai food but that is going to change. I had a noodle soup with beef that was spectacular. My... More

My family wanted food with flavor after traveling around Iceland, and went to Krua Thai not expecting very much. The yellow curry was fantastic, and all members of my family loved the food. I was told the Pad Thai was also great with crispy bean sprouts. The ingredients were all fresh, and they accommodated requests made for several of the... More

This is the only Thai place we had a chance to try but, we ate here twice - we thought it was great! There's always a spot and the curries were all very tasty. Prices are very reasonable too.

Craving some Asian food while in Iceland and Krua Thai was the answer. They have a lot of food choices and everything seems so yummy! Price is reasonable and the servers are friendly, too!
