We went to the restaurant on an off chance even though it was very busy we managed to get a table. We both ordered off the winter special deal. The staff were very friendly and even though it was busy the food didn't take long to come out and was of a high standard

We come to the Lakes every year and make sure we visit the Mela on each occasion. It never disappoints. In fact this visit had a Christmas discount menu and it so happens I had the best Madras I have ever had. And if you like medium/hot currys try the Pinot Grigio. Your mouth will explode.

We decided to get a takeaway from here for 2, coming to £30. Two curry dishes, both basically tasted the same but in a different colour sauce. Having said that, the tikka masala was hardly even edible and most was left. Even the rice was poor, obviously overcooked, how can you get rice wrong?? Will not go again, it's not... More

Staff friendly and polite but curries poor. My lamb kas buna was a disappointment and the two chicken dishes my fellow diners had remained unfinished. Atmosphere upstairs good.

We considered going to Lake Raj but decided to go to Mela and are so glad we did! It was great value for money and the meal was excellent. Will definitely return when we next visit Bowness.

My husband and I recently visited this restaurant for the first time having eaten in various establishments in bowness over the years and were pleasantly surprised to find such a gem. The food was superb, hot, fresh and extremely tasty. The staff were friendly and helpful and we definitely will eat at Mela again on our next visit.

We usually go to another curry house when visiting the Lake Windermere, but were recommended to try Mela by the hotel and we weren't disappointed. The food was cooked to perfection and the service was great. Will definitely return.
