We were staying just around the corner and came here to see what the food was like before reading any of the reviews! The food is edible and tastes okay, slightly undercooked burgers but not too bad. Cheap easy meal.

I'm not a big seafood eater, so Reykjavik was difficult. Aktu Taktu offered a basic burger and fries (basic if you can ignore the over-saltiness). It's overpriced fast food, but most food in Iceland is overpriced.

Went here to get some hot dogs. It's your basic fast food joint. The french fries remind me of McDonalds. The hot dogs you can buy from the little street stands are a lot better in my opinion. Also, just a heads up, they do not put ice in the soda as most Americans are used to, just fyi. One... More

This is a nice hamburger joint. Good price. Nice view from the restaurant sitting area or a quick drive thru.

The staff are rude, constantly joking and the food is dismal. For the price of 1799 ISK for a "meal", you'd expect something edible. However, the meat in the burger was burnt, smothered in BBQ sauce and soggy. Absolutely shocking experience: eat at your own peril.

Its a fine sweaty hangover burger or if you're late to go somewhere because the service is really fast! It's fairly priced and tasty

Way to salty. My coke tasted like it was mixed with tonic water. Fries were cold and soggy. Two small burgers, two small fries and two small drinks cost almost 30 US dollars.

Reykjavik fast food. Burgers are decent - better than McDonald's. We did the drive-through and had to wait forever for the order to be ready. Very expensive for what you get. The equivalent of a quarter-ponder with cheese is about $16 USD. But still much cheaper than going to a restaurant.

Just fantastic fast food. Great burger. I ate a burger with onion rings and bacon, and what's not to love about that combination? It was so good, that we even went back the next day. Interesting fact: they even sell condoms at this fast food place...

Aktu Taktu is located on the Reykjavik's Shore Walk and is a good place for the American food lovers. The place looks like an old fashioned diner and the food is freshly cooked, so a waiter will bring it over to the table everytime. The prices are very good for Icelandic standards and the burger was tasty.
