My husband had lamb chops and a house special. All dishes were great and tasted different. Complimentary liquor... read more

Happened upon this great little Bangladeshi restaurant / takeaway hidden away on historic Ash Street when we were meandering through Bownness on a cold and rainy night and were glad we did - it's excellent. Great range of good quality authentic, tasty and flavoursome dishes to choose from. 20% off offer for takeaway customers and good seasonal special menu available.... More

Fabulous little Indian restaurant. Owner is very welcoming and accommodating. Brilliant to sit in and for takeaways. As locals, we don't go anywhere else for our Indians

Went here with the wife for a curry on a Saturday night in January. Outside the restaurant they advertised a 3 course curry for about £12.95 (popadom, mixed starter, main course, rice or nan). When we sat at our table we were handed the normal full priced menu. When I asked about the special I was immediately passed the special... More

Had a walk around Bowness last night to find somewhere for dinner and so many options. Decided to pop into Mela. Don't be put off by downstairs being empty you are taken upstairs where there is a lovely atmosphere. Friendly and attentive staff, but not in your face. Had two courses, Chicken Chat and Lamb Rogan Josh and Lamb Methi.... More

Visited here with family who had recommended it and after the visit I wasn't particularly enthused. Food was nice but nothing brilliant. I found much of it to be quite tasteless. We had a nice meal but I've eaten in tastier and nicer Indians. The staff were friendly and very accommodating and service was efficient. One last point I'd say... More

Been quite a while since last visit but once again we were not disappointed. Excellent service all round and quality flavorsome food. Sheek Kebab starter very moist and tender followed by excellent Jingha Supreme giant king prawns complemented with a garlic and coriander naan.

We ordered a Take Away on recommendation locally and were not disappointed. The food was excellent, plenty of it but a little over price would be my only observation. Staff very smart, friendly and cheerful.
