“The best meal I have had!”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

The food here was amazing! I am Indian and this food was better than some of the food I have had in India. It tasted really fresh, and made with simple ingredients, and close to home cooked food. It is mid-priced and not cheap, so we only ordered one entree, but it came with free refills of rice and lentils which made for a very filling meal. The manager/owner was friendly and we talked to him about how he ended up in Iceland. If you're in the mood for good food in Reykjavik, go here!

“Wonderful dining experience!”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

We are Indian foodies - we try Indian restaurants most everywhere we travel ( including India) as well as cooking it ourselves. We were surprised to find Indian restaurants in Reykjavik and after reading the reviews decided to try Gandhi. Firstly, the atmosphere is lovely, modern yet so reminiscent of India. There were not many diners that night, only two other gents were there the entire time we were, so we had an opportunity to chat with Loy, who waited on us, a very gracious young man from Kerala.. The food was excellent, I feel like it was some of the best Indian food we have had! Butter chicken, palak paneer, vegetable pullao) not on the menu but the chef accommodated our request), dal, raita, and really yummy naan! We liked it so well that we went back two nights later! And who should come in shortly after us but the two gents who were there our first visit! This time they were seated next to us and we had a great conversation. They are a father and son from Belfast who agreed that this place is great! We shared some food back and forth so got to try more. The tandoori lamb was so tender and tasty we would go back just for that! Thoroughly enjoyable! MaryAnne and Jack from Sisters, Oregon, USA

“Lovely little gem of a restaurant”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Had a lovely meal with friends at this restaurant. The waiter was lovely and the food was excellent. The menu was a little smaller than most UK Indian restaurants but the food was lovely. When we had finished our meal we were left to chat until we asked for the bill. The price was very reasonable by Iceland standards.

“A lovely Find”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

What a treat this place is, the service, food and the restaurant was lovely, no wonder why we did not find it the first time we went out exploring, the restaurant is down some stairs and it feels a bit like a snuggly cave. We tried some new dishes rather than have what we would normally eat in England, not sure what we would get, but everything tasted wonderful. The gentleman who looked after us was the sweetest man, he even thanked us as we left for our company. and commented. it can get lonely down here, a great sense of humour. Put this on your list as a place to go when you visit Iceland.
