I ordered onion baji a sizzling chicken to start and we decided they were so good we'd eat it all as they don't reheat like a curry does. I ordered the jhinga masala my wife ordered the butter chicken and we shared a kadhai paneer, butter naan and steamed rice.. The prawns in the jhinga masala were crunchy and cooked... More

A large group of us went here for lunch and while the décor and furnishings are not opulent, the service was very good and the food excellent. We had a variety of small meals coming out constantly, the variety of tastes and appearances was brilliant.

If you want to be overloaded with India ambience, this is the place to be in Perth. I have seen many Australian come in to have Dosas. They have a good North Indian cuisine along with Chats. The staff is also very enthusiast about meeting and talking with Indian customers

Came for a wedding function, food was prompt and delicious, guests were well catered for and taken care of. Could not have asked for a better experience, thanks to Shelly and her awesome team at the magnificent Mela!

We had a very good meal with great flavours. The place was packed and service was still excellent. Will happily return. On weekends, they have a special menu including Indian chats (Indian Street food and Fast Food ) which are so delicious. If you are looking for weekend lunch options in Perth, this place is definitely worth a visit. The... More

Well - what a disappointment. Ordered from the main menu and the value for money was pretty terrible. Very small portions and luke warm food. Naan was dry. My chole were tepid. Flavours were good but this was distracted from by the expensive prices for not a lot of food on your plate. Choose carefully if you're going to go... More

I've eaten here several times and always enjoyed the food. Quite reasonable prices too (for Perth). The last time we went it was PACKED, with people queuing out the door. For this reason I assume, the service was a lot slower than normal, but I would still go back again
