“An unexpected surprise in Iceland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

After traveling in Iceland for three weeks eating crackers and cup a soup, I was looking dinner at a relatively good price and great quality. Well it it was! Being a vegetarian (no red meat or pork) there was plenty of options on the menu for me. I choose the chicken biryani....a very good choice, The cook came to the table as well and asked about the meal to ensure it was to our satisfaction.

I would recommend this place to everyone

“Relaxing and tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Good vegetarian selection, and the chef/owner even made us a dish that wasn't on the menu. The staff were friendly and attentive, the food really fresh and tasty. It was, being Iceland, quite expensive but in this case well worth it.

“Tasty Indian Food worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

I stopped there on a Sunday evening after a long day of excursions in the country side and I was not disappointed.

I started with the onion mushroom pakora, which were absolutely delicious. I followed with the Bheda special biryani, a rice with lamb that, without being the best I ever had, was quite good.

The plate of papadum was plenty and excellent. And the beer was great.

Overall an excellent meal, certainly more expansive that what I would have paid for the same thing at home, but Iceland is expansive everywhere....

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant capped our iceland tour and could not have been a more fitting end. The food was absolutely delicious, and the tandoori chicken and mint chutney just melted in our mouths. Ashesh, the owner, was the ultimate host and made are we were well attended to. With only 7 tables, we were lucky to get in early, and the space quickly filled up. Would strongly recommend it if you like interesting food.

“Nice surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

I had never been to a Nepalese restaurant before, and wouldn't expect to find one in Reykjavik of all places. We had the pilau rice and some appetizers. The fried onions and mushroom came with a delicate mint sauce that was outstanding, and the lamb on rice flakes was quite an experience. Don't miss this restaurant!
