This small Indian restaurant in the very heart of Reykjavík is simply the best Indian restaurant I have ever visited, albeit seeking out an Indian one in every city I travel to. Exquisite food, wholesome, delicately prepared. Well done, folks!

Awesome Indian restaurant offering North Indian cuisine in a very warm atmosphere. Awesome menu for both Veg and Non Veg. As with all things in Iceland, found it kinda pricey compared to US.

Gandhi’s staff serve their food with a smile. There are very good choices on the menu. We had dinner twice within a 6 day stay. I would highly recommend this place for a sumptuous meal.
