The food is okey, nothing wrong with it. But they forgot stuff we ordered and it really did not feel like we were welcome.

Location: 5/5. The restaurant is located centrally in Reykjavik, in a charming building. The venue is intimate and cozy, with a few tables and a bar section on the first floor of the restaurant. Staff: 5/5, super friendly and casual. When we decieded on two...More

Took 45 minutes for one roll and two pieces of eel, and there was only one other table there! Very slow, the sushi is just okay, and it ended up being nearly 40 dollars.

For some New Yorkers craving sushi in Europe, this definitely satisfied. The sushi was well-priced considering how expensive sushi can be and how expensive everything seems to be in Iceland. Easy and casual dining experience.

We chose the chefs delux plattet. Asked for a volcano roll too. Got salmon, and salmon, and salmon. Not the quality I usually get here. We had to wait an hour for the food, it was a half empty floor.
