Menam is my favorite restaurant in Selfoss and I've been there many times! It's a cozy place with good service, the waiters are friendly and eager to answer my questions about the delicacies on the menu. Most often I get the "huts" which are basically 3 or more dishes for 2 or more people. It's got very decent prizing and... More

Having visited Tryggvaskali for the first night of a two-night stay in Selfoss we thought we'd have more of a budget meal and my guide book recommended Menam as a traditional Thai with good food and no MSG. It seems to be quite popular and I can see why. Tasty Thai food - all the favourites - and served efficiently... More

This is our third or fourth visit to Menam over the past 10 or so years, and the food is consistently great! Service is friendly and quick, and portions are generous. When in (or passing through) Selfoss, this is our go-to restaurant.

Menam was our first restaurant stop off in Iceland (which feels odd as it's Thai) but we had an enjoyable meal at a reasonable price. I had chicken satay and was not disappointed - the size of the dishes was also good. Service left a little to be desired but it seemed that there was a larger party in that... More

I have eaten thai food all over the world and was attracted by the good reviews !! Although the food presented was not bad This is not thai but maybe a Iceland version off So if you expect what you may have had before don't expect the taste you used to Basically we all agreed it's just weird and the...

This is a great place to eat! We found it heading back to Reykjavik from Vic, one night. Awesome appetizers and a very good meal. Alot of people arent used to the way waiters bring your food and then leave you alone, we rather enjoy it. We had and good dinner, with a couple beers! Cheers

Thank Cadpaximus
