“Happy to recommend despite a problem”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

This is a relatively new restaurant in Playa Del Ingles although there have been other "indian" restaurants on the site. Although "going for a curry" can be a bit hit and miss in holiday resorts we do like to have a couple on most holidays and like to try places we've not used before.

Mirchi-Le-Spice is very well presented with attentive staff and enjoyable food. There was a small problem on our first visit in that one dish was missing (not cooked) when the main course arrived but this was dealt with fairly quickly and the overall experience was very good. In fact, we decided to pay a second visit a few days later as we had enjoyed the food so much. By one of those awful coincidences one dish was again missing (not cooked) when the main course arrived - although remedied as quickly as possible I was not as sanguine as I had been on the previous occasion. To be fair, the boss was mortified and genuinely apologetic.

Despite these problems I would still recommend a visit. The food is genuinely good and doesn't have the oily/greasy texture that can otherwise spoil your enjoyment. I also detected some nice fresh spicing in some of the food. The prices are set to give good value for money and the restaurant itself is a pleasant place to eat. I would have seriously considered an "excellent" rating (caveated with expectations in a holiday resort) if it hadn't been for the repeat problem. We will be back in the area in a few weeks time and will certainly visit again.

“Fablous”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We were recommended this restaurant by friends. We were not disappointed. In fact we were so impressed with the great food, cleanliness and service that we went back a second time. This is a must if you are in the area. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and the services and attention to detail is wonderful. If you are not in the area, take a taxi you will not be disappointed. A family run restaurant with a warm welcome. Each of us had different dishes on both evenings and none disappointed. In fact they got better. Wish we had the same back home.

“So good went back again”
Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was recommended by our American girlfriend and she wasn't wrong!!!
Everything was brilliant personnel, service, decor, cleanliness and then the food!!!!!!
We often eat Indian food as all four of us love it but this is one of the best we've found, shame it's not around the corner this would be our favourite local restaurant. first time we've left nothing over, balanced good sized portions, delicious and varied menu. It was so good we went back on our last evening for more.
Good luck guys,see you next year would be worth coming back to canaries just to eat there.

“Fantastic.. a MUST in Gran Canaria”
Reviewed April 4, 2014 via mobile

We found this restaurant through trip advisor and was true to its 5star rating. We had amongst other very tasty things the tandoori king prawns which were delicious. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the attention from the host, Ayu was impeccable. A restaurant we will definitely return to.

“An oasis of taste”
Reviewed March 24, 2014

We happened upon Mirchi- Le Spice while wandering around in Playa del Ingles.

Although I must say that the small center that it is located in, is in need of some attention, the restaurant looks great! I feel like this is one of the best looking restaurants in Playa del Ingles.

And the food! It is so delicious! We ate every last bite.

Order the poppadoms to start. They are served with 4 different sauces. DELICIOUS!

I wish that our vacation was longer so we could eat there again.
