A lovely evening

Had a lovely meal with my daughter. Service friendly and food very high quality. Decor rather eclectic and slightly cramped but a varied interesting menu. I recommend the spicy mussels!

Mela was well recommended by a local employee, from the B&B we where staying at, as one of the best Indian Restaurants in the area.. so we gave it a try. Fantastic... the food was excellent & the staff very friendly. We will definately re-visit next time we stay over in Bowness... Top marks.

The food was not too bad not very good as well! Service was poor and staff never smiled. I didn't feel comfortable. I would think more than once before going back to this restaurant.

Last minute dinner with two friends. We had lovely food but the service was rude and rushed. We finished our meals and without even being asked if we'd like anything else the bill was placed on our table. The waiters persisted to hoover over our table until the bill was paid and they even resorted in nudging a chair! Such... More
