It is one of few good resturants in Stafford in my opinion. The food was nice, specially butter chicken, yumm and ample size. Resturant staff were very polite and made good service. Price was reasonable. Starter was abit bland, but ok. Resturant itself was clean and tolerably decorated. The only very negative point was toilet. It was not clean enough,... More

Excellent as always. Have been going for a long time now.. Only today decided to put a review when a colleague of mine went to Mela on my suggestion and loved it and asked if I had put any review for the service and food! The bar is great! and of course the food and service is excellent... Will definitely... More

Popped in for a belated birthday meal with the family and was not disappointed. Mixed platter starter was perfect as was the chicken tikka, ridiculously tender. Mains included a lamb tikka massala which was demolished by my eldest and the Chicken 65 was different and very enjoyable with a side if chana also. So good was the food, that my... More

We were treated to a meal at Mela Lounge last night....and what a treat ! The food was absolutely delicious. Light and exceptionally fresh. Perfect spicing and an excellent list to choose from - the menu is extensive, which made it very hard to decide what to have. The Butter chicken was simply yummy. And I mustn't forget the service...

We had a top quality meal last night. The mixed starter was a success and the main meals were delicious. We had a chicken pathia and chicken tikka masala, both lovely sauces (but we'd have prefered more meat!) The mushroom rice was good, as was the naan. Can't fault the service. I'd recommend this place.

Visited the restaraunt on a busy Saturday evening as all tables were full. We were a party of 10 people and as a result, I think this contributed to there being a delay in our food getting to us. The food was worth waiting for. We all had different dishes and I sampled several and was delighted with all of... More
