“The best swahili soulfood in Iceland”
Reviewed 27 April 2014 via mobile

Great Swahili dishes. I enjoyed eating chapati and the best chicken mshikaki (kebab) I would recommend every one to go test the Swahili soulfood.

“Amazing food!!!”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

What an amazing restaurant!!!

Sylvia is very passionate about her food and is very willing to help you find something to make your mouth water.

We dined as a group of 4, with only West African culinary experience, so everything was totally new for us. Sylvia recommended a few great dishes and we were not disappointed.

The Ugali with Sukuma wiki was a taste sensation, along with the chapatti and stew. As for the chicken.....you will just have to try it for yourself and see.

“An excellent restaurant in the heart of Keflavik”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 via mobile

The Kenyan food at this restaurant is amazing and very reasonably priced. The owner Sylvia is extremely accommodating and explains the menu fully so can determine what is best to order. It takes a little time to come as it is freshly prepared and definitely worth the wait and a nice cold beer goes down well also while awaiting the main course. I look forward to returning to Soulfood in the coming months.

“Delicious Kenyan Meal”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

I can highly recommend the food and the vibe at Soulfood Matata, where you can find a great selection of delicious dishes.

In the town of Keflavik, where you might otherwise be surrounded by American fast-food chains, it is lovely to find a place with such heart and soul. The owner is always there to welcome you and puts in great effort to make the experience worth your while.

You shouldn't go through Keflavik without stopping by for a meal.
