Indian food might not quite be at the top of your list of cuisines to try whilst in Gran Canaria. Sometimes, though, only a curry fix will do and if you happen to be on your summer holidays when a craving strikes, the hunt to find a half-decent Indian restaurant begins!
Luckily, for those holidaying in Meloneras in Gran Canaria, there’s a pretty good Indian restaurant located on the main strip of restaurants on the promenade by the sea. Misbah hasn’t been open long but it’s already developed a solid reputation amongst tourists with a curry craving.
On the night we went, we were drawn in by the aromatic smells drifting along the promenade. After perusing the menu (it’s an extensive menu with plenty of options for meat lovers, fish lovers, and vegetarians), we opted for a lamb and potato dish and salmon tandoori. We ordered some naan bread and pilau rice to complement our choices.
My lamb dish was full of flavour and neither too spicy nor too mild. The lamb was tender and melt in the mouth and the potatoes had been cooked very nicely, retaining enough texture so as not to melt into the sauce.
Kyle’s salmon tandoori was even more impressive; salmon is so easy to dry out but this salmon was succulent.
There’s nothing particularly spectacular about Misbah in Meloneras, but what they do, they do well. The food is good enough to satisfy any curry cravings that might spring up when you’re in Gran Canaria and it also helps that the prices are reasonable and, unlike at the other food establishments along the same strip, they don’t do the hard sell to try to draw you in.
