We entered Kryddlegin Hjortu, purely by chance. A lucky choice. There is an unusual menu with mainly Indian food but a small choice of other foreign meals. Prices are on par with other Reykjavik restaurants and the meals for our party of four were delicious....More

This is quite a simple restaurant close to but away from Reykjavik's Main Street. However it is nicely appointed and comfortable. It has a small Asian menu. It also has a good all you can eat soup and salad bar. There is a choice of...More
