After a long time visited an authentic Indian restaurant that too in iceland. Very good and tasty food. Service was excellent. Highly recommended especially for Indians missing home food. Bit pricey though.

It's the best Indian restaurant in Iceland. The food is spicy and very good. We have people with allergies and vegan in my family and was suitable for both. The price is high but it's worth it!

The ambience and service was great but the food was not up to the mark . An overdose of spices in the curries , dry tandoori tikkas and even the biryani . Have definitely had better Indian food in Europe .
