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!

The wine we had with our meal was good quality and competitively priced. The maitre d' is a lovely guy and we chatted with... More

My husband and I visited Mela on a Saturday night and really enjoyed our meal. The service was excellent. The food was really good, tasty and great value. We enjoyed onion Bhajis to start which were authentically cooked in just gram flour as they should be! The curry mains were full of flavour and had a nice kick! Would recommend.
