This is my favourite Indian restaurant in Swindon. The food is always excellent quality. There is a good choice of veggie mains, alongside the usual meat and prawn options, and an extensive number of starters and side dishes to choose from. The service is great - always friendly and attentive but not intrusive or familiar. The prices are reasonable, too.

Dinner early on Friday evening with the family. Yet again the quality of food and service was exceptional. And very reasonably priced too. The best Indian restaurant in the Swindon area by some distance.

We were given a table on the first floor which overlooks the ground floor. They have this special huge Naan... More

Have now visited the Mela a few times over the last year and very impressed with the food and friendly service. Stylish decor and extremely clean. The food is fantastic and delicious, a wow is the enormous nan bread that comes straight our of the oven, presented on a metal stand. There are bonuses to making your visit worthwhile, the... More
