We found this little gem after our flights home were cancelled due to a storm and boy was it worth getting stranded in Iceland for. The food was tasty and there was plenty of it. I'd highly recommend this restaurant and would return again.

Being of indian origin very hard to find authentic Indian cuisine however this was fantastic. Clean friendly efficient staff. Went to great efforts to make it special as it was my birthday. Played great Indian music. Easily located in the city centre.

We were very excited to find an Indian restaurant in the heart of Reykjavik!! The food was very good and the atmosphere was very warm and inviting. We loved our hostess/waitress Aswathy, she was so personable and sweet.

My girlfriend and I absolutely loved this fantastic cozy restraunt. Being vegetarians, we ordered the lentil soup that was out of this world, garlic naan and paneer tikka masala. Would give it 5 stars.
