Visited here in January 2017 during our four night stay in Reykjavik. Ordered three courses, with one beer and one soft drink and the bill came to the equivalent of £160. Even taking into account the cost of living ( and eating out) in Iceland this is a huge amount of money and I didn't feel we received value for... More

It came as a pleasent surprise to see such top notch , done to perfection Indian food in Reykjavik. Everything we ordered was par excellence. We only had vegeterian items and all of them were perfect. On the costly side even by Reykjavik standards. Highly recommend: masala kulcha aloo baigan hyderabadi dopyaza dal garlic naan ( they call it spelt... More

We were looking for a nice restaurant to go to on my birthday & this place popped up on the list. It was the photos on trip advisor that caught our attention and it really is as ambient and warm inside as the photos show. The food was excellent - Indian food is one of my favourite styles of food... More

Our choices were the Tandoori mixed grill and several veggie courses that our server chose and we were not let down. The meal was the best Indian we have had for a long time topped off with great service and attention to detail. Lovely surroundings and the place was full of happy people having a good night out.

Outstanding and world-class Indian restaurant. Ranks among the best of the best of the Indian restaurants in other global capitals where I have enjoyed top-tier Indian cuisine, including NYC, London, Mumbai and Delhi. Cuisine was divine -- not to be missed are the baingan and the pistachio kulfi. A rare and delightfully unexpected gem in snowy Iceland!

Went with my husband, we love Indian food and always try to find a good one when travelling. This place has the best Indian food we ever had. I love the salmon and my husband always goes for the some kind of lamb, we are never disappointed. It's not the cheapest place in Reykjavik but we'll worth a visit on... More

Service was good and dishes had a lot of flavour but surprisingly spicy. Prices were similar to other restaurants we had been to in Iceland, very high. Particularly surprised we had to pay almost £5 for mango chutney, which is usually included with the meal. Overall would recommend, but do expect to dab off the excess oil from the garlic... More

We decided to visit the Austur after reading good reviews on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. We gave the restaurant a figure that we would be happy to pay then left it to them to choose the menu for us. All 6 of us thoroughly enjoyed our food. Would certainly recommend.
