Fodor's Expert Review Austur-Indíafjelagið
$$$$ Reykjavik Indian Fodor's Choice
Long before Reykjavík could boast of its cosmopolitan culture, this outstanding restaurant was busy with loyal local customers who enjoy authentic Indian cuisine. The gormandizing gets underway in a luxuriously decorated lounge where colorful, golden-brocade cushions, Tanjore painting, and teakwood walls frame a collection of Hindu deities. Here you can sip on a cool Cobra beer or Mysore masala cocktail, nibble on poppadoms (seasoned dough), and browse a menu of popular Indian classics with enough obscure regional dishes to impress any thali aficionado. The seafood dishes are worthy of consideration, too: the tandoori lasooni lobster and hariyali salmon are scrumptious, as are kozhi mappas chicken and achari gosht lamb.
