“Overpriced hugely and average food. I'd avoid this restaurant.”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

If you are from the uk, you will be used to a good standard if cooking and service. At this restaurant, the service was passable, the decor good, but the food very average. As a British Asian myself, I felt they were out of touch with Indian cooking and were charging extortionate prices for very average (if that) cooking. We left there scratching our heads. Nobody begrudges spending money on a decent experience. But if you love curries then this is not the place for you. Probably best to try the Icelandic food (there are some great fish restaurants around here) and leave the curry to your local!

“Good food”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I visited the restaurant for our anniversary and the food was delicious and the ambience was lovely. At the time of booking I had mentioned that it was our anniversary and the staff surprised with a special dessert. Whilst it may not be the cheapest restaurant it is definitely worth going on a special occasion.

“can do seafood”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Probably the best indian food experience we've ever had. Why in Iceland? Went twice in two weeks and both time all of us had excellent meals. The lobster dish was exquisit.

“Very Good but not cheap”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We've been having dinner there our first night in Iceland and were positively surprised about the quality and taste of the meals. It is indeed a very good indian restaurant and the service was also very good and friendly. The prices were rather high but still acceptable with regards to the freshness and taste of the meals.

“Very expensive”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Food is Ok - this was my second visit here (went there last year as well). Food is not very spicy but it is nice and is obviously very popular as they seem to have a table turning policy - we were there on a Saturday night so this may not be true on other nights.
