Fair price and excellent service, the owners help you out choosing, show you what to add to the dish and you end up with one GOOD bowl of noodles.

We really enjoyed the delicious and satisfying bowls of noodles we were served at this friendly casual restaurant. There is lots of good food in the city of Reykjavik but this place had very reasonable prices as well as being fresh and high quality. It's conveniently located at the bottom of the convergence of two major shopping streets so hit it after you've been to the big cathedral and all the little galleries for a lovely recharge of spicy nutrition. We came all the way from Hawaii for our dream trip to Iceland and this was a really nice part of the whole wonderful experience.
There was no restroom but the owner told us he is about to do a remodel and upgrade the dining room and add that facility.

We tried this place as well as the Noodle Station up the road. This is good, but the other is a little better. There are more options here, but the prices are a little higher and what I ate wasn't as good. Either way, it is a good place to go if you're on a budget or if you're looking for something not made of fish or lamb

Giving this 5 stars for price and quality of the meal and the friendly staff. Came recommended by Pink Iceland and they weren't wrong. Just wish the restaurant had more of a cafe type of seating. Though in the end the place allows for guests to better interact with each other as choices are being made. We had the Bammí al pomodoro and the Noodles on land. Both were infused with flavor and the serving portion was more than enough to come away happy. With the Bammí al pomodoro, the turkey meatballs were very robust in flavor - not bland as one comes to expect from experience with turkey meatballs. The Noodles on land was spicy, but not too much so. Just wish there had been a bit more chicken in the dish. All in all we had plans to try and go back to try more of their dishes. Later hours would have been nice for those looking for lighter fare...

Was feeling pretty miserable on my last night in Reykjavik, and realized I needed a big steaming spicy bowl of something, to clear my head. We passed a nearby noodleshop (no seating) and went on Nudluskalin a block down--glad we did! We hit during the closing rush, so it took awhile to A) place the order and B) get the food, but it was just what I needed. Very tasty, felt quite "fresh and healthy" as an entree; and a very hearty portion. The icing on the cake; we ended up being the last customers in the place, and got to talk with the owner (who was running the place alone that night)---he was friendly and very knowledgeable, and we could have picked his brain for another hour about Iceland, Reykjavik, Icelandic culture, etc. He wrote out an over-the-counter Icelandic cold medicine for me to take to the apothecary as well (kind of like a Thera-Flu product.) I'd go back again!
