“Authentic Thai in Reykjavik”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

Like some of the other reviewers, our family decided to try this restaurant because we wanted some Asian food after a few days in Iceland. Krua Thai did not disappoint. We had the basics like fried rice, pad thai, beef salad, and green chicken curry. Each dish tasted as it would in other Thai restaurants in Asia. Prices were extremely good value for Reykjavik. Highly recommend this place for anyone craving Thai food in Reykjavik.

“Aroi dee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

Even if Iceland food is excellent in particular seafood and lamb I need sometimes some Thai food. Heavily spoiled by trips to Thailand and Malaysia I can inform all readers here that this restaurant can compete with places in Asia without hesitation. Dish , enough for a regular consumer, starts approx with 11 Euros. Free water. The interior is more like a cantina but not fine dining. Anyhow went there 3 times during my brief stay.

“Good Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

We love Thai. I would say it was very good, not amazing. The service was very fast and the food was hot and fresh. We went on a Monday night and the place was packed. Decent prices and we did not leave hungry. Would recommend if you are looking for something other than seafood!

“Good Portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

This place is modestly priced compared to many other restaurants. The prices range from 1500-2500 ISK for most meals. I got the Chicken in Cashew Sauce and really enjoyed it. My boyfriend got red curry and thought it was pretty good as well. I felt like I got a lot of food for what I paid! Definitely would come back.

“Excellent food at very good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Reykjavik is expensive, we loved our Thai food at Krua Thai, and the value- prices were reasonable and portions generous.. 3 dishes easily served 4 adults. It is small and busy, so get there early. You order at the counter, and they bring food to table. So if you are looking for fine dining...this won't be a fit, but if you are goood with casual & comfortable setting near water, great food, cute place, you will like This restaurant. They also have a place in Akureyri .
