We went down the main high street looking for a meal on a Friday night, most Restaraunts were doing brisk business, but nothing stood out. We ended up walking back and noticed that there was a single free table at the window so we dived in. We went for the Japanese Sushi & Grill 5 Course menu, which came with complimentary wine. 10,000 ISK each so around £50 per person, which seemed fair if the food was Ok. Well the food and the service surpassed being just Ok, Infact it quickly elevated to possibly the best meal i have ever eaten. Every course more fantastic than the last all washed down with a quality red. Perfect!

Went with my friends 2 weeks ago and my experience was great. Very friendly and helpful staff, they bring you water just as you walk in and get your drink order right away. You don't need to do much to get they're attention. Very warm and friendly feeling. The WonTon soup is amazing and i haven't tasted better even in asia. Then i had some sushi which was well presented and tasted so good. Best sushi i had in iceland and we tried a few. If you are in iceland you must try it!

Reykjavik has many really great restaurants. We decided to try Buddha Cafe, a relatively new arrival on Laugavegur, Reykjavik's main shopping street. We were welcomed immediately and seated by the window. The atmosphere is inviting with a really 'fresh' feel. We ordered two chicken dishes: a chicken satay and a special chicken dish and two draft beers. Service was friendly and well paced. The entrees arrived in a reasonable time and the plating was extraordinary! The food was as good as it looked. We were very pleased with the food, the service, the value, and the restaurant's ambiance. Buddha is definitely well worth a visit.

We paid a visit here, passing it on the main street in the city and called in because it looked really inviting. The welcome was very friendly and the waiter was very helpful. The food when it arrived was delicious, it was also reasonably priced for this city.
