Reviewed April 8, 2014

Great little restaurant. We had the lamb and chicken kabobs, and both were outstanding. Nice atmosphere, very good service .... we absolutely loved Balkanika and would highly recommend it.

“Wow! Best lamb ever”
Reviewed April 1, 2014 via mobile

Set in a side street, this place looks unprepossessing, but was full when I passed (a good sign). Encouraged by the reviews I checked on TripAdvisor, I stopped for dinner and enjoyed probably my best meal in Reykjavic. I had shish kebabs of the most tasty succulent lamb in lovely, simply decorated surroundings. A must visit!

“Great place. Great food! Great prices.”
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

This place its in a small Reykjavik street, but just steps away from the main street. Great stuff and nice ambiance. You should definitely try it out!! I ordered lamp shish kebab and it came with hummus, tzaziki, rise, salad and delicious pita bread- huuuge meal! My husband took some grilled salomon. Also great choice. As a appetizer we got some dolma and paprika burek.
Definitely recommending this place also cuz of the great prices!!!!

“A touch of Eastern Promise in cold Reykjavic!”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

We came upon this restaurant accidentally and are so glad we went in to eat. We were on a very short timescale and they provided an excellent meal for two very quickly. The quality and flavours were perfect. So much so that we went back a few days later when we had more time, to enjoy their set meal of 10 dishes to share. It was excellent. A warm and cosy restaurant with lovely service and ambience. Definitely go, you won't be disappointed. Oh and very reasonably priced.
