Lovely Indian / Nepali Food

The food at this restaurant is really good. Most indian restaurants add a lot of oil and butter to the food to make it taste better but that not authentic indian food. The flavours are more important. This restaurant got it perfect. A gastronomical delight without the unnecessary fat. Surely visit... read more

The food was absolutely awesome - the taste, flavours and fragrance - was an explosion to the taste buds and senses. Authentic dishes, freshly prepared. Overall, food was great, if not excellent. The service was very personal and the owner is charming. The prices were very reasonable. Would we visit again - it's resounding yes. Will go back for soon!

We both love inidian food and this restaurant lived up to our expectations and more. After a day of sight seeing we fancied something hot. We both ordered two curries recommended by the owner and WOW the flavours were amazing. What we liked most was the fact that the owner was sending all money earned for the next three weeks... More

Met a young couple with a friend and we all enjoyed the Eldhus restaurant. Ordered 4 nans, and four dishes. Vindaloo and korma, chicken, vegetarian. No seafood. Food was solid, not great. Nan was not very good. Cobra beer was excellent and the total was very reasonable. If you like northeastern Indian food or Peshawari food you will enjoy.

A warm welcome, a relaxing atmosphere, and excellent and delicious food! I ordered the Nepalese masala curry with vegetables and opted for peshwari naans as a side order. That type of naan was just perfect to go with the hot version of the curry. I had an exquisite dinner and will go back for sure!

My husband and I ate here two times on our 6-day vacation in Iceland. It was so good that we had to go back and try different menu items again! The food is amazing - cooked only with fresh ingredients and a unique blend of spices. I had vegetable curry the first time and vindaloo the 2nd time; my husband... More

Desperatly needed a warming curry after walking around Reykjavik. Found this Nice Family driven Nepalese-Indian restuarant in the main street (but don't hold that against it, not to many streets in Reykjavik). Very good service, they explained a lot about the Herbs and the way they cooked the Food. Tender chicken, fresh juicy home made curry With Herbs. Naan bread... More

After a long day of touring, we decided to come here. We ordered the chicken nepalese masala and the grilled lamb with yogurt based sauce. Both dishes were delicious. The lamb was flavorful, the accompanying grilled vegetables were tasty. Even simple potatoes were good and thebyogurt sauce with the lamb made it even better. The nepalese masala was sweet, made...
