I really do not understand why this place doesn't have a higher review average. It has a ton of options including gluten free and vegan. I had the noodles in a fen. It was fantastic. My friends had dom kha. It's obviously a fusion, not even close to pretending to be "authentic" Asian experience. It's a build your own noodle... More

This is a small and convenient restaurant. Really quick service and very vegetarian friendly, they advise you to adjust ingredients to your liking. Nice sitting area upstairs. Big generous portions too.

My partner and I ate here one night and it is what is expected. You chose the soup for your noodles and whether you want exta toppings or not. There is a small seating area downstairs and more seating upstairs. They take your name and shout up to you when the order is ready, so you have to go down... More

When you enter the restaurant it seems as if it is a take-away but don't let your eyes deceive you! You order at the bar and then you can either go upstairs to a open area for about 15 people. They will simply shout out your name when your food is ready. This will take 2 to 5 minutes. Food... More

This was out first dining experience in Reykjavik which had to be quick as we had to squeeze it in between checking in at the hotel and being on time for our northern lights trip. It was quick, reasonably priced and to be honest, excellent. It was full of flavour and a good portion. I was left full for the... More

My husband and I had dinner here one night. It was a recommendation from he hotel we stayed at. He had some sort of noodle and chicken bowl and he loved it- said it was great. I had the vegetarian tofu soup and it was OK. Large portions. Slow service but everything is made as you wait which is good.

Stumbled on this place while looking for affordable dinner choices in central Reykjavik (not easy!) and fell in love. The noodles were delicious, filling, fresh. The place clean, friendly, fast service and free water. There was a fair amount of choices on the menu and, best of all, the prices were a steal (again, by Reykjavik standards ;) ) Suffice... More

Came across this when we were looking for somewhere cheaper to eat and gave it a go. They have extra seating upstairs. You choose what you want and go and order it and pay for it at the counter. Then when it is ready your name is shouted out and you go and collect it. The noddles were lovely and... More
