The curry at Mela was fantastic. Would highly recommend the dansak and the mushroom pilau rice. The staff were extremely friendly, showing an interest in all their customers. Vegetarians were also highly catered for, having a wide selection to choose from.

This is the first time we have eaten at the Mela but we will definately return. Having tried two of the other Indian restaurants in Bowness this is by far the best. The staff were friendly and service was good. The food excellent and good value!

We tried Indian vegetarian food at this restaurant and the food is no way close to what the actual dish tastes. An Indian writing review about Indian food should be fairly critical when you consider Indian food in this area. We were extremely disappointed with the food taste, quality (our Potato dish felt like it was cooked few days ago).... More
