Hradlestin is without any doubt the best Indian restaurant in Reykjavik! Go for the thali which would fill the stomach of 2 folks with ease. Good lovely young staff who'd work beyond there capacity for your convenience.

Chicken tikka masala, lamb somosas and garlic naan for 55. Well done for 2 in Iceland. And Is next to a wonderfully convivial craft brewery.

This restaurant is nice but lacks in consistency and sometimes in quality, both in service and food. I've had great food at Hraðlestin but also sent back food because it was inedible (couldn't bite through the lamb it was so chewy).

Tasty Food and Inexpensive in comparison to many other restaurants that we dined at during our time in Reykjavik! Ate here twice and would happily have eaten there again if we had more time in Iceland.

Cheap food at expensive price. I would suggest other good Indian restaurants in Reykjavik. Hradlestin food is tasteless.

At the end of a very long day we were looking for something to have for a late dinner, and stumbled upon this cute, cozy, little restaurant one block off of the main shopping street Laugavegur. Prices were fair, and all of our food was...More

Located in the heart of downtown Reykjavik, Hradlestin (India Express) is a favorite among locals to grab a quick bite. The Bollywood themed decor of the cafe is a creative accompaniment to eclectic modern day Indian street food. Popular items on the lunch menu range from traditional Naan Rolls (stuffed naan wrap) to Thalis (multiple curries and accompaniments) to Indian inspired Chicken Tikka pizzas and Gun Powder Masala sweet potato fries. The dinner menu offers more traditional dishes such as the Lamb Tikka Masala, Chicken Madras and Channa Masala. Both lunch and dinner menus offer dishes for vegetarians and vegans as well. Be sure to check out the lounge upstairs in a cosy Bombay loft atmosphere. The 'over the counter' style of service in a casual and comfortable setting makes Hradlestin an affordable dining option.
