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.

This is our 2nd visit to Mela Spice Fusion. The service and the food are fantastic. Great Tasting Food, very spicy. We enjoyed The Ceylon and of course The Masala.

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.

My teenage son loves spicy food but doesn't like lots of 'bits' in his sauce so we explained this and the waiter suggested a dish with the right level of chilli heat but with a blended sauce. I had a lamb Naga with lots of green chilli. Fab. Home made lime pickle was second to none.
