The service was horrendous. We waited at the table for twenty minutes. Tried to get the waitress' attention twice. Others who came in after us were given drinks and their orders taken. It was like we were invisible. It was not even crowded and it...More

I don't understand how this restaurant was named 'best thai in Reykjavik'! The food was average, very plain pad Thai and a massaman curry that tasted more Indian than Thai. I have eaten my share of thai food and this did not hit the mark....More
