Much better than a McDonalds, gets cooked fresh. Limited choice but very cheap and delicious. Staff were friendly. Would definitely recommend for a quick cheap meal that tastes great.

This restaurant is the cheapest one where we eat in Iceland and the burger was delicious! One of the best burgers that I ever tried... Este restaurante es el mas barato en que hemos comido en Islandia y las hamburguesas estaban deliciosas! Una de las mejores que nunca he provado...

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.
