My wife and I had a lovely meal at this restaurant. The staff were absolutely excellent, they were very friendly and welcoming and were nice and chatty when you wanted them to be, and left you alone when you wanted to be left alone (a rare balance in restaurants these days...) The food was fantastic, really delicious curry's and my... More

Mela has an excellent setting in this beautiful town. The decor is warm and inviting and the restaurant is clean and tidy. The food presentation was excellent as was the quality. The service was also excellent, they couldn't do enough for us. We had a 17 month old baby with us and they provided a clean high chair and made... More

Been to this place many times and the food is lovely - especially the king prawns which are properly sized and cooked. The chicken is in tender chunks, and you can tell they use fresh ingredients and don't just smother unidentifiable things in sauce! The staff are always very pleasant and gracious, both to early family diners and the late... More

We went to the restaurant on an off chance even though it was very busy we managed to get a table. We both ordered off the winter special deal. The staff were very friendly and even though it was busy the food didn't take long to come out and was of a high standard

We come to the Lakes every year and make sure we visit the Mela on each occasion. It never disappoints. In fact this visit had a Christmas discount menu and it so happens I had the best Madras I have ever had. And if you like medium/hot currys try the Pinot Grigio. Your mouth will explode. If you are in... More

We decided to get a takeaway from here for 2, coming to £30. Two curry dishes, both basically tasted the same but in a different colour sauce. Having said that, the tikka masala was hardly even edible and most was left. Even the rice was poor, obviously overcooked, how can you get rice wrong?? Will not go again, it's not... More
