I am purely Hindu vegetarian person. Ordered vegetarian paneer tikka masala and they served Chicken tikka masala instead. They didn't charge for it but still it heart my sentiments Never go again

Amazing food, standard prices for Reykjavik, friendly staff. Our meal for two, including a beer and a large wine, popadoms and naan came to £80. So good we went back two nights later! Would definitely recommend :)

Nice enough food, very expensive ( £10.00 x 2 poppadoms !!! and approx £30.00 each main). They blatantly tried to over charge us for an extra main course, offering no explanation or apology. The Icelandic guy behind the bar starred at us all contemptuously as we challenged the bill, and made us feel very uncomfortable, we did not leave a... More

Very good. The menu let you choose the spiciness of your meal. I chose medium heat and this was quite mild. Others in my party also chose medium but said it was not as spicy as they expected. The restaurant is tucked away. The staff knowledge about gluten free was good and the menu was extensive with only 3things that... More

Great ambience and good service. We had Butter Chicken, amazing and the butter naan was gorgeous. Lamb Sag was tough and they need to re-think a blended green sauce - seriously not appetising ! Would definitely go again - but give the lamb a miss 😞

We had a lovely meal, thoughtfully served. Having traveled extensively in India, I can say this cuisine was pretty legitimate, albeit probably slightly tailored for a local audience. Great flavors, well prepared. Very nice atmosphere / ambiance. If you're looking for something that is very good and less appallingly expensive than other nice dinner spots in town, definitely head here.... More

While exploring Reykjavik on foot after 9 hours of traveling, we found ourselves getting hungry, and then we stumbled upon Ghandi. We had been eating traditional European food for about 1.5 weeks, so we decided to spice it up and try something different. Ghandi did not disappoint: the lentil soup was amazing, the lamb saag was cooked just right, and... More
