“the perfect food for a dreary day”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Top notch comfort food for a chilly, drizzly day in Reykjavik. If you go for the "Noodles for the Soul", tell them to use only half the chili. I love spicy food, but what they put into this soup is insane. You can always add more yourself if you think it too bland with half a dose. A bowl of soup here is a meal that will set you back abut $10 - cheap for Reykjavik. And for what it'a worth, the deli 2 door further up the hill carries wonderful bagettes.

“Nudluskalin hits the spot”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Nudluskalin is a rarity in Reykjavik - an affordable meal. Their warm dishes hit the spot after a morning of walking around town in cool, damp conditions. Friendly staff and a great location right downtown.

“Excellent Noodle Bowls”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

These were more Thai styled noodle bowls having coconut/curried flavors. They had many sauces/spices to add to your bowl to get the flavor just how you like it. So delicious and only about $10-12 each. Perfect cheap dinner in Reykjavik.

“Decent, cheap meals”
Reviewed June 6, 2012

This is one of the few cheap places to eat in Reykjavik, which automatically makes it great! The Soup for the Soul dish wasn't so good though. Avoid that one. We also ordered one with the word "land" in the name. The complete name escapes me now but it was a great dish with lots of peanuts. Reminded me kind of some Korean instant noodles but the portion size was great!

“Good coconut soup”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Decent size bowl of soup, the flavor was nice but you can barely find the chicken in it. The place is small but overall it was a good dining option if on a budget and craving soup.
