Being Indian and having tried Austur Indian and Gandhi both, can safely say that if you crave traditional Indian ( with predominant south Indian flavours) then Gandhi is the place to go. The ambience isn't as nice but not as fancy as the other place but the simple yet identifiable and enjoyable food makes it a winner.

I live very close to this place and also Austurlanda Hraðlestin. While Hraðlestin is nice for a very casual dinner (you order at the counter and your meal is brought to you -- it's nearly like eating at a fast food joint), Gandhi is much better for romantic dinners and we have enjoyed a few birthday and anniversary dinners here. Drinks are quite expensive compared to other restaurants, so we rarely drink here, but always get a couple of entrees to share. During this most recent visit I had the Chicken Xacuti and my partner had Tandoori Lamb Tikka. We also had the sweet naan bread on the side. Everything was flavorful with a perfect level of spiciness. Tip -- avoid tandoori items if you want sauce (my meal came soaked in sauce; my partner's was served dry on a bed of lettuce). We'll definitely return for another special occasion -- service is always prompt, and although the food takes a while to be prepared, it's always delightful.

Chef Arun made our day with some excellent food at the end of a tiring day touring around Reykjavik.

The flavors of Dal Tadka came out so well, we could not look beyond it to anything else on the menu :) Sunny Bunny loved the Paneer Tikka and Naan was good as well.

Definitely on the costlier side, but we plan to go there again before we leave Reykjavik.

Located next door to The Borg Hotel, we went twice for dinner in one week. The food was excellent.They had an Indian chef from kerala whose preparations were excellent. The tandoori salmon is the best bet and so was the butter chicken. All mains were served with white rice, indian style yogurt and dal. The food however was a bit pricey like everything else in Iceland. The service was very good, and the place was packed, indian food is famous in Iceland too.
