We love Indian food and knew that a similar cuisine would offer more vegetarian options than most restaurants in Reykjavik - and we were not disappointed! Our appetizer, bread and entrees were all very tasty and nicely spiced. The service was excellent and included a short visit with the owner which lent a personalized touch. We would definitely visit again.

My small fish dish and one beer came to about $30, but eating out in Reykjavik is expensive. The food was good, though, and the owner came over several times to see how everything was.

We were looking for a good gluten free restaurant in Reykjavik and discovered Kitchen Eldhus. This was my family's first experience with Nepalese and Indian food and this restaurant did not disappoint. The food was fantastic and, with the exception of 2 dishes, the entire menu was gluten free. Thank you Kitchen Eldhus for making our last meal of our... More

Those few negative reviews must have just been very unlucky, because the food we received was very tasty and the speed of the service was acceptable. The portion sizes were also more than sufficient. Highly recommended

We arrived without a reservation (as seems to be the norm) on a Tuesday night. The good - the food was excellent. We asked the owner (who was also the waiter, busboy, cashier, and probably chef) to make us an appetizer sampler for three and he came through with some hot out of the kitchen samosas and pakoras. All were... More

A group of 4 of us, visiting from Portland Oregon in the United States, found ourselves pretty hungry after a day of walking around the city of Reykjavik. We were greeted and seated quickly. We soon met the owner, as he introduced himself and welcomed us to his restaurant. The food was very, very good. We come from a "foodie"... More

While visiting Reykjavik, Iceland, it was the best place to have a quality meal. Very professional and courteous staff with personal service. It was so delicious that we had to come back again after a week when finishing up our trip. If there is something you would like to customize, the owner will be delighted to cook for you. Very...

Visiting Reykjavik from Portland, OR, my travel companions and I found ourselves craving curry. We stumbled upon Kitchen Eldhus and found everything to be quite good. Friendly attentive staff greeted us and ( albeit it took time) their delicious food soothed our spice-craving pallattes. Standout dishes were the lamb chops and chicken vindaloo. The vegetarian pakora was simply a delight!... More
