“Should be #1 Indian Restaurant in Iceland!”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Fantastic. Central location, warm cozy restaurant, very friendly service from the lovely Nepalese manager himself and absolutely amazing food. Seriously tasty, authentic, non-greasy Indian/Nepalese food. It is so much better than the very pretentious and much more expensive Austur India Fjelagid which seems to rate higher on Trip Advisor. The manager is a very accommodating, genuinely friendly man who did his best to meet my fussy demands, and the food is just out of this world. It's pricey compared to England, but then where isn't in Iceland! It's less than half the price of Austur however, and fifteen times better. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

“Brilliant food great service”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Þetta er án efa einn besti matur sem ég hef smakkað. Nanbrauðin eru ómissandi. Mæli svo sannarlega með að borða þarna.

The best Nepalese/Indian food I have tasted. The Naan bread is to die for.
I fully recommend the food, service and friendliness of this restaurant.

“Brilliant little Nepalese / Indian restaurant”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

A group of 3 of us went to Kitchen Eldhus twice on a recent short visit to Reykjavik (it was so good we had to go back a second time). It is one of of the more expensive Nepalese / Indian restaurants I have been to once the beers had been factored in, but certainly not overly so for Reykjavik. Food was authentic, fresh and extremely tasty, the atmosphere lovely and the owner / chef and his staff were extremely helpful, willing to explain any dishes and make recommendations, even extending as far as advice for my own curry cooking experiments! We ignored certain recent reviews as we have often found this can be due to the customer not being entirely reasonable themselves. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Reykjavik who loves Indian food. We have many, many restaurants of this type in the UK, and this is among the best we have been to.

“Great food, slow to arrive”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

We were a table of 8 on new year's eve. The food was fantastic, the service was nice, but minimal, the main issue was drinks and food took an absolute age to arrive. Unfortunately my meal was completely forgotten so I ate after everyone else which is not ideal. When my tandoori mixed grill arrived it was absolutely delicious, especially the potatoes but unfortunately I had to eat it very quickly and we still missed the bonfire we had planned to go to. I do recommend this restaurant, a curry on NYE was just what we wanted but go when you're not in a hurry to get anywhere else.

“Really authenthic tasting Nepali food!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We were here on the Christmas Eve and luckily we got a reservation. At that day they had booked too many people and too few staff were working so they were in trouble. It took 1h 45mins for us to get food after ordering! But considering the day of the year, it was acceptable. And it was worth the wait. In a long time I haven't tasted such an authentic tasting Nepali food since I was visiting in Nepal! Really tasteful and once for all, also REALLY SPICY as we asked for! Also moderately priced. If wanting some good Nepali food, do stop by over here.
