Where Bollywood Restaurant is

The Bollywood Indian Restaurant is located in the heart of Playa del Inglés, at the Águila Roja shopping centre. Although it is located in a popular tourist area known as the Irish Centre it is fast becoming well known with the local residents on the island.

Exquisite, authentic Indian cuisine to either eat in or take out. They also have a delivery service available to your home or hotel accommodation via FoodExpress. You will find the Bollywood Indian Restaurant at the entrance of the centre, directly opposite the Green Field hotel. Watch out for the white elephant on the terrace.

An Authentic Indian Restaurant

The food at Bollywood Restaurant is simply fresh and delicious and everything you would want from an Indian restaurant. They pride themselves in being one of the best authentic North-Indian Cuisines in Gran Canaria. And the reviewers on TripAdvisor agree – the Bollywood Gran Canaria is amongst the TOP 3 Indian restaurants on the island.

The presentation is excellent and the vibrant colours make you want to devour every little last bit. There is nothing better than hearing the sizzling plates of hot food being brought out to delighted diners whilst you can smell the spicy, fragrant aromas throughout the restaurant, making you wonder what delights the next table may have ordered!

Palak Paneer Bollywood Indian Restaurant Gran Canaria

There is a fantastic choice of starters, Tandoor specialities and of course all of your traditional curry favourites as well as 5 different ‘Sizzler options’ which are unbelievably flavoursome and delicious. There is also an extensive selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes available (highlighted on the menu with a green symbol), that even the most carnivorous of diners will definitely want to try.

If you have children and they don’t want curry, there is also a perfect menu for them such as hot dogs and chips or even chicken nuggets.

Your meal should be complemented with a fantastic selection of Naan Breads and Basmati rice choices and of course there are also poppadoms with fresh mint raita, chutneys and salads.

The Presentation

Each dish is served in a special bowl served over a mini fire to keep the food nice and warm. The Balti comes in a silver wok type pan which is where the name actually originates from and not from the actual food itself. The Karahi one of the most delicious and popular dishes in Northern India is served in a black pan, again named after the cooking pot rather than the food.

Don’t worry if you feel a little overwhelmed and don’t quite know what to choose, the friendly guys will help you out and guide you in exactly the right direction for a perfect selection of food. Each dish can be cooked to your liking from being a really mild tasting curry to a very hot OMG!!

To accompany our meal we chose a lovely dry white wine but if you want to try Indian beer there are 2 brands available, the refreshing Kingfisher or Cobra beer.

Wow! Please. If you are thinking of going here, do! Super fast and friendly service and amazing food.We had the Chicken Madras and Lamb Hydrabadi. With some Paneer Pakoras and Chicken Chaat to start. All of the food was piping hot, and tasted beautiful. The meat was good quality. The lamb melted in the mouth and the sauces were very well flavoured and authentic.The staff were attentive and very friendly.I’m from West Yorkshire where we have a large Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi community and I’ve eaten a lot of curry. I’d go as far to say, that this was probably one of, if not the best curry I’ve ever had.Simply delicious and reasonably priced too.10/10!

I highly recommend to visit this restaurant if you like the indian cuisine. Cozy atmosphere and really friendly staff. And the food is stunning. My best indian food experience since a very long time.If you never tried indian dishes before, you should definetly give it a try here. Because if you have any questions you can ask and the boss will give you advise, which dish is recommended for your own special taste.Too bad it's too far away from my home. But when we come back to Gran Canaria island, we will visit this place again.

Excellent food, friendly staff, who will do their best to remember what you had to prevent you from ordering the same thing next time (which is a good thing). Highly recommended.

What a delicious curry. I had the vindaloo, which I was asked if I wanted mild, medium, spicy and "oh my god" hot. I didnt want to try the oh my god one the first time so went with hot and it was perfect. Next time I will be try the oh my god tho. The sauce was thick the chicken was so so tender. It really did fall apart. My girlfriend had the tikka masala which I tried and was lovely. Onion bhaji was great and the tikka starter was beautiful. The service was amazing and very friendly. I cant wait to go back.

Amazing restaurant! When we got their, they were extremely busy, but the wait staff were still very accomodating and polite. I'm gluten intolerant and although the staff were slammed, they done they're absolute best to help me choose menu items that wouldn't affect my allergies! They were able to recommend a few starters that contained no gluten or onions and were able to advise loads of mains that didn't contain them either! They were unaware that Strongbow cider was gluten free, and they thanked me for providing that info as it meant they would be armed for their next gluten intolerant customers! Food was absolutely delicious, can't fault it at all!! Even though they were still very busy, our food came out very quickly!! We ended up having to ask for takeaway boxes as there was so much left over and they were able to oblige with absolutely no issues, they even asked us how we wanted the food packed IE whether we wanted separate boxes or all of it mixed together. Very impressed with the establishment, highly recommend you go here for some properly authentic indian food!

I visit Bollywood Indian Restaurant few days ago.Short review is amazing and definitely worth to visit at least once.Food very tasty and have different choices for different taste. The menu is very easy to understand and gives you a lot of information,staff is very lovely and helpful, if you don’t understand terminology or names, they are there for you, they will explain you and give you good advice.I like that they have different levels of spicy hot , if you don’t like spicy food-that is not a problem- just choice mild - and again if you like hot food they have options for you- which I never try but is called OMG.As starter I had papadons with 3 dips. (Sorry no picture as I was very hungry that day)And onion bandji ( great taste)I had chicken curry( spicy hot) as main and I was well surprised when I had my first bite, first couple of seconds you don’t feel the hot, but after that come to me very gentle, I love it . ( if you like Nando’s hot, so that option is for you too, just small touch hotter)The only downside for me was that tables are too way close, not because of covid or something, in general too close , you can hear what table next to you whispering. Which I find out , that the stuff remember their regular customers, that is really nice and so personal. Keep doing that.And another downside for me personally was the price. But that is my own personal view. I’m not rich and €50 for dinner for two for me is way bit expensive. Probably the owner is well aware of that because after you pay you bill they give you 15% off your next visit.I really want to go back and have one more time good experience of nice and tasty food but unfortunately I can’t afford it.However. Really good place. If you can go and visit- I promise you, you won’t be disappointed!

Amazing food and service!The waiters were lovely and extremely nice! They got a big tip from us!The food was really really good!We were gonna order Butter Chicken, but our waiter suggested getting the Bollywood Chicken instead as they described it as a tastier Butter Chicken (90% Butter Chicken and 10% Tikka Masala). It was truly extraordinary! Definitely recommend!!We got a few different rices and naans, and they were all super tasty and delicious!!The mango lassie was a little thin but also very very tasty!Regarding the spice level; Mild is definitely mild with no spice at all. I regret not getting medium, so get that if you want a little bit better taste (this is also what staff recommended).Overall it was an awesome experience and i could strongly recommend it!!

Situated across from the very popular mulligans bar, this little gem of a restaurant is a class act. Starting from the waiter and his knowledge of the menu, we started off with some popadoms and chutney, then swiftly followed by chicken pakora which was a delight. On to the main event,,, a vegetable korma which was beautiful and very fresh,, then came the waiters recommendation,, chicken Bollywood! OMG!!! This was right up there with the best curry I’ve ever eaten, asked for it spicy. Ended up cleaning the plate with the garlic naan we shared.. thank you Bollywood for the meal hopefully we shall meet again 😋👌🏻Keep up the good work! 🙌🏻

Brilliant and authentic Indian food. The waiter was so helpful and knowledgeable which is a big help! The madras and saag were both very tasty and well spiced. You can choose the level of spiciness for all dishes so you can get as mild or as hot hot hot as you like it! The starter, chicken puri, as recommended to me by the waiter was delicious also. Highly recommended.

Probably the best curry ,I have had ever ! (And I've had a few ) the spices just explode in your mouth ,smell coming from the kitchen was amazing. I have chicken tikka starter and my wife's had chicken pakora and our kids had lamb Sheek kebabs all amazing . My king prawns in my prawn dansak were sweet and tasty and our sons korma sauce was lush . Will be returning . I would say it's a little bit expensive but well worth it for a treat

Best Indian on the island, and believe me I've tried them all. Great staff who make fantastic menu recommendations so definitely let them make suggestions to you.All the food is tasty and fresh with the best meat. They have fantastic naans and onion bhajis which make my essential list for any Indian restaurant.Wether you eat in or take away this restaurant is the islands hidden gem for sure.

We had a really fabulous meal a couple of nights ago. The owner took time to explain and recommend dishes and ask about flavours we like/ dishes we might usually have. His aim to get you to try other things; so for the first time ever I had Madras which I’d never have in the UK as I’d think it was too spicy but I was assured it would be a mild version packed with flavour. And oh boy, it was!! Really delicious. My partner had a lamb dish also recommended by the owner.We will be returning during our holiday to try more new things.Service and attention to detail were spot on. Thank you
