Although this place does not look much from outside, please step inside as I had one of the best curries ever. We called on spec on a Wednesday evening and were lucky enough to be accommodated on a table upstairs. There were four of us. The waiters were pleasant, had a great sense of humour and made you feel very... More

Food here is average to say the least, typical Bangladeshi rubbish full of artificial colouring. I ordered a chicken tikka Rogan which is supposed to be tomato based.There were no tomatoes to be seen! The top of the curry was COVERED in RED FOOD COLOURING!! The service was also poor, we waited 45min for the starter and 20 min for... More

Me and my partner visited the restaurant on 5th July 2014, the food was average and the service was poor. We were rushed in and out despite booking a table in advance. The waiters didn't give you time to peruse the menu, slammed food down on the table, were very arrogant and ignorant removing your plates while you still had... More

We stayed in Windermere from 23rd June to 27th June for the first time and visited Mela on 24th on the recommendation of a friend, it didn't disappoint. The service was excellent, and we had absolutely delicious fresh food, the waiter recommended a prawn dish to my husband and it really was fantastic. Would thoroughly recommend and go back.

Loved the food - we're not ones for a lengthy evening spent in an Indian restaurant, but service was good and we weren't kept waiting - would definitely visit again and would also try their take away service

My wife and I visited Mela last week while staying in Bowness. We were instantly welcomed by the friendly staff and shown to our table upstairs. The restaurant was small and cosy and while not busy, there were plenty of other people there. Our starters of sheekh kebabs and prawn cocktail were delicious and made us look forward to our... More

This was my second visit to Mela, and the food was delicious. Service, as ever, was really great and the waiters were very helpful. A great Indian restaurant in a lovely location. I would definitely recommend!

Extremely unprofessional, did not even acknowledge at first look while looking at the outside menu, me and my wife were looking at the menu and a guy at the door gave us a takeaway leaflet saying we are closed, when asking what time do you close the guy replied 11pm, when it was 10.40, so i said you are closed?...
