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

We organised a dinner for family and friends (34) to celebrate and chose Mela. Primarily the choice was due to location, menu choice, prices and past experience. Many of our invitees were the first timers to this place. To conclude it was a pleasant surprise, splendid venue, good quality (delighted with Tandoori dishes and Butter Chicken), friendly service and overall... More

Worst service ever. Waited for 15 minutes to get a confirmed table. Waited then for 20 minutes for someone to take an order. Waited for 15 minutes to get a beverage. Totally a very very bad experience.

Yet another delicious masala dosa at Mela. One day I might eat something else here, but it's hard to go past a masala dosa!

This 'cheap and cheerful' Indian restaurant in William St is such a great find. Two of us shared a chicken dosa. It was the BEST! A large serving, extremely fresh and very tasty. We arrived at about 6pm on a Monday night and the restaurant was pretty much empty, but by 6.30pm it was buzzing. Service was good, although we... More

The restaurant is very clean with basic decor. Service was prompt. My meal was delicious and reasonably priced. Very convenient if you're staying at the Ibis
