We recently asked our Facebook fans for their suggestions for the best Indian restaurants in Puerto del Carmen.
And they didn’t disappoint with many sharing their favourite restaurants with us all. Indeed, having a curry during your Lanzarote holiday seems to be a very popular activity, especially for British and Irish visitors.
The good news is that if you’re yearning for Indian food during your holiday, then there are plenty to choose from in Puerto del Carmen. The majority serve a traditional menu with many of the favourites you’d expect back home. However, you might also be surprised how many offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options as well. Just ask your waiter what’s available.
So, let’s get to it – which are the most popular Indian restaurants in Puerto del Carmen according to Club Las Calas owners and guests:
1 Indian Aroma
Taking a whopping 41 per cent of the vote was Indian Aroma. Located at Avenida de las Playas, 13 across from Playa Grande, Indian Aroma serves delicious homemade food using fresh, natural ingredients. The service is good too.
They offer a wide menu of traditional curry dishes, but importantly, have gluten free, lactose free, low calorie, and vegetarian and vegan options. You just need to ask your waiter.
Fancy curry for lunch? They offer a great lunchtime deal from midday to 5pm with meals starting from €5.95 and served with salad, naan and rice.
