Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Like some others have said in the not-so-good reviews, this place is horrible. The chicken pad thai was disgusting, the more you eat it the more you feel like something is terribly wrong with this food. Had so few chicken meat, and the meat was...hard and did not look like it was just cooked, looked like it was re-used from someone else's leftovers. The noodles were stuck to each other, dry, without any taste. I wonder if there isn't any sanitary food authority in Reykjavik checking this place because what is happening there is 🤢More

We always love a thai meal whenever we go away, so we went here as the reviews were good. All our meals were excellent and very cheap for reykjavik. We had 2 curries with rice and one chicken thai noodle dish, 3 drinks and some...prawn crackers all for under 50 pounds.More

This restaurant was just across the road from our hotel so we thought we’d give it a try. Cannot recommend this restaurant enough. Chef made my food to order because I like it hot and I wasn’t disappointed. Excellent quality and affordable.

Lovely Thai food. This is not a fancy restaurant but it more than does the job. Food was very good and cheap compared to most places in the city. Definitely recommend.

Saw this gem whilst sat in the expensive Food Hall across the road a say earlier. 2 curries, prawn crackers and soft drinks £37 which cheap for Reykjavík. Lady serving was polite and welcoming. Food was so fresh, hot and tasty. Warmed us up on...a freezing day. We ate around 6pm and the restaurant was quiet. Got busier later. Highly recommend.More

We love Thai food and had previously checked trip advisor for reviews of places to eat whilst in Reykjavik and came across this place. We certainly weren't disappointed. We ordered 3 different dishes to share amongst 3 of us, pad thai, red curry and a...stir fry, we added a portion of prawn crackers, a beer, red wine and coke. Portion sizes were just right and the food was delicious, this was our cheapest meal out (around £55) and would highly recommend it, we were actually tempted to go back the following night, we only didn't because we only had 2 nights in Reykjavik and wanted to try another place. The staff were lovely and helpful, it had a nice relaxed atmosphere.More

To me, this doesn't look like the most inviting place from the outside, but my partner really wanted to try it... So we did. I am so pleased we did, the food was really good. Portions were more than ample, and well priced for Reykjavik....Definitely worth a visit if you are in the cityMore

Superb Thai restaurant. Lovely warming meals, just what you need in Iceland. The Massaman curry was superb, with a satay twist. Very good value for money, excellent food and great service. So good we are here twice.

Ate here two times on our visit to Reykjavík. Very honest, clean and healthy food. Decent prices too. Restaurant was clean with nice toilet facility. Staff friendly too. Would recommend. Maybe add a few Thai starters to the menu for that extra something.

We ordered green curry, pad thai and Tom yum soup. As an Asian, I have to say the taste was unexpectedly sweet and not spicy or sour enough as it’s supposed to be. I can’t tell what was wrong with the Pad Thai but it...was like an unknown dish to me.More

For Iceland, very good value for money. I believe mains were around £15 each which is very good for Reykjavik.
