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.

We were in Iceland celebrating a friends 50th and heard great reviews about this restaurant. Booked a 20:00 table and did not receive any food until 22:00. Overall food great and service poor.

I usually don't write reviews unless I'm travelling, but this is one of my all-time favorites, so I make an exception. Place has a very nice atmosphere. Fancy - but not too fancy. The food is awesome and never fails. Indian food with Icelandic ingredients is clearly a good combo. Both food and wine is reasonably priced, compared to quality.... More

This is one of the few Indian restaurants in Reykjavik and we booked for the earlier of the two time slots . The staff was good and understanding and accommodating knowing we were a party of 3 Indian couples who must know what good Indian food should taste like. All the dishes were very expensive as it was the case... More

We really enjoyed ourselves here, turn up around 11pm and don't leave before 2am - thats when it got really full and fun! Live music around 10pm in the front bar, and then the disco starts in the back around 11pm - good comfy seating and nice staff on the bars and cloakroom.

I only went there as one of my friend was craving for spicy food after getting wet in cold weather for 3 straight days. We didn't expect Indian restaurant in Iceland needs reservations. Still, we decided to call and to our surprise they said they are full for rest of the day and they can't accept us. So, we checked... More

We live in Birmingham so we have a fair few choices for Indian restaurants. First off this is a top end restaurant and probably the smartest we visited in Iceland on our trip. The staff were pleasant and all well spoken. The food was the best I have ever tasted. We had the set menu and the lamb curry was... More

Had the pleasure of eating here, and I can recommend this place. From a subjective point of view the only negative was that don't serve Coca-Cola. Only the blue one. Indian food with a ice-cold Coke is unforgettable, but Indian beer saved the evening. Will come back.
