“Good food at a good price”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

If you want to eat good food at a good price you should eat at this nice small restaurant. The hummus was to die for and the zucchini patties were really good. The place is small but friendly and welcoming. They specialize in Bulgaria, Turkish and Greek food and that was an exciting change from the Scandinavian cooking in Reykjavik.

“A small restaurant/takeaway on a side street but really great!”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

Chanced on this restaurant and decided to give it a try as it was close to our hotel. Mixture of influences and food exceptionally fresh and cooked to order. We had a salad, mixed starters (hummous, tzatsiki, bread and other) 2 large skewers of lamb (exceptionally tender and flavour full), sweet and coffee. Compared to other restaurants this is very well priced and well worth giving a try. The staff very helpful and friendly. We came back on our return to Reykjavik as we had enjoyed it so much. I only wish they were near to us in England!! RECOMMENDED!

“awesome food at great prices”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

My top fav restaurant in Reykjavík, small, cosy and very friendly staff, not to mention really tasty food at good price compared to the average pricing in the neighbourhood. I go there from time to time.

“Fresh, fast, delicious”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

The friendly waitress brought a delicious assortment of appies, and the cod with tomato. A yummy white beer called Einstock ... Glad we spotted the tripadvisor sticker on the window. This place is a find.
