The lunch buffet is a great way for starters who are trying something new ... the server you have to wave them over or if they are just standing near the buffet serving line to tell them what you need.. it does get pretty busy during lunch time ...

Delicious food, adorable young waitress, all family owned, and decent price. Many local Indian customers there, obviously considered authentic food by Indian locals and family. They can also serve parties in the back. The atmosphere is certainly not spectacular, but decent enough. The servings are huge, next time we will likely order several appetizers, instead of full dishes.

Every time I come to San Antonio to see my mom, we come to eat lunch here. The food is outstanding and the restaurant is beautiful. I have only eaten during the lunch buffet so the service is just so-so unless you are lucky enough to get Julio, who is very attentive. I highly recommend Mela's to anyone who likes... More

The food is average, not great but not awful either. They will accommodate your desired level of heat, which is a plus for me because I find too many Indian restaurants make their food too bland or too salty for those of us that are very familiar with good Indian cuisine. There are better Indian restaurants in San Antonio than... More

My husband and I went to this restaurant last night around 7PM. It was a Saturday evening and there were about five tables occupied. We were seated with our menus, and waited and waited to get served. The waiter served another table dinner and also gave another table water when the rest of their group arrived. My husband thought he... More

Best Indian Food in San Antonio. The service was great and the portions are huge. My husband and I could easily share a meal. I highly reccommend this restraunt to anyone interested in Indian cuisine. The atmosphere is classy and relaxing. They also have an excellent bar if you wish to have a cocktail. =)
