The founder and head chef of Indian Mango is George Holmes, he is a Goan that has had a life long passion for authentic Indian food and has an innate desire to offer food that is old and modern, trendy, appeals to the eye and is palatable. He has travelled extensively in India, sampling Indian cuisine.  He has luxury hotel background including 4 seasons world wide hotels, cooking for celebrities and not so famous people as me he says.  His work has appeared in the media in and outside Europe, including Gestgjafinn, Iceland's largest selling food and wine magazine.

The background to the diversity of Indian fare is set out in the creator, besides his travels, he has lived in the foothills of the Himalays feasting on Indian cuisine, including game even though he hails from South West India.

The food is absolutely spectacular. This restaurant specialises in Goan food, serving beef, duck, fish and some veggie mains. Its chef - poached from a five-star restaurant - makes up light, spicy, delicious dishes. Its bestselling creation is an Icelandic-Indian hybrid completely unique to this restaurant - svartfugl (guillemot) marinaded in Indian spices . The furniture is beautiful and from India. Lonely Planet says its the best Indian restaurant in Europe and Trip Advisor says its the second best restaurant of Reykjavik.
