We went here twice while we were in Iceland. The food is delicious and the staff is lovely. If you were blindfolded going in you would swear you were in India! I can't reccomend Austur enough!

This is one of the best Indian restaurants I've been to outside of India. The food is authentic, the service is impeccable! Just loved it.

The ambience is amazing. Every minute detail is hand picked to give a very indian experience. Right from the main entrance door to the flush in the bathroom has been carefully designed to give an indian touch. :) the food was very fresh and delicious. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. Overall had a wonderful dining experience!

Went with a group of girls on a weekday. The service was very good and the decorations in the restaurant are well suited to Indian restaurant. The menu has a good variaty, but I would prefer some kind of a set menu for group to share - with a sort of taste of India. I also find it quite annoying... More

I like my food with great flavour and often spicy and this is one of the places I go to get my fix. The food from the Tandoori oven is always a good recomendation.

I have in-laws in Bradford - the curry capital of the UK and we have therefore had some pretty fine Indian meals in our time. This compared with the best if them. We both had salmon based dishes as our main course and it's difficult to say how you could improve on them. The flavours were subtle soft and gently... More

Booked a table here after it was recommended by a friend. The interior is beautifully decorated and the atmosphere very nice. We got seated right away and our order taken. However it took more than an hour before our food was on the table. The food was good but the portion sizes on the smaller side. It took a very... More

Dear Svava, Thanks for taking the time to review your visit to our restaurant. It is very important to us to hear from our customers if something goes wrong. This particular night the restaurant got very busy and the speed of our service slowed down as a result. Fortunately this does not happen often in our restaurant. We would like... More

Iceland is expensive anyway, but this was unnecessarily expensive for the food we had, which is best described as generic and was actually very ordinary. After reading the glowing reviews from many visitors we had high hopes. However, the choice on the menu was no more than a few chicken dishes (red, dark red or brown colour), lamb and fish.... More

AusturIndia1994, Manager at Austur-Indiafjelagid, responded to this review

Dear Steve, Thank you for taking the time for your feed back. It saddens us to know that your experience was a disappointment. The reason for the limited menu that you had was because we had a month long celebration of our twentieth anniversary and we only served the most popular dishes of the last twenty years, in the entire...

Just returned here last week for the third time in four years an it is still wonderful. They have totally renovated the place and added a nice waiting area where you can have a drink while you wait for a table. I still can't get over the fact that this is one of the best curry places I have ever... More
