This restaurant is well worth a visit if you like Indian. We went in downstairs but were taken upstairs to eat. The place was very welcoming and felt comfortable. The service was excellent the food was very good and we thoroughly enjoyed the evening. When back in Bowness we will certainly visit again.

Just awful. We had the misfortune to go here last night. Firstly if you are placed downstairs it is like a café at best, My wife ordered a chicken Rogan Josh and I a Lamb Balti. They were the same curry, same pieces of processed meat, all that was different was the colouring added to the curry base. No chilli... More

Came in here for a takeaway and despite not having been in for about 6 months, the waiter recognised me from previous visits. The customer service was excellent, the staff were very friendly and I was given a complimentary beer whilst I waited. Only took 10 minutes to prepare and when I unpacked it at home I'd been given free... More

Friendly staff, superb Indian food, Mela is an excellent restaurant to enjoy a curry. Along with the traditional old favourites, the menu contains some unusual options hence the term 'fusion'! We had the chicken Korai which is the best indian meal we have had for a very long time. I would not hesitate to return!
