“Well recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

My wife and I found this lovely little restaurant while idly walking the beautiful streets of Bowness On Windermere. We were attracted by the fantastic set meal price, and decided to go that night. Upon entering we were greeted by a love man who showed us upstairs. The waiter helped us choose our food offering recommendations for me, who don't often eat Indian. The food was beautiful, and plentiful and the friendly, but not overpowering waiter was excellent. A fantastic night, with fantastic food.

“Fantastic curry”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

From a choice of 2 local curry houses in Bowness we decided to try the Mela. It did not disappoint. The staff were very attentive but not over the top. One of the waiters actually said let us know when you want your main course. I think they just didn't want to rush us through. I had the Chicken Garlic Chilli Massala and my wife had the Chicken Makhani. Both were absolutely gorgeous and some of the best main Indian dishes we have ever had. What made it even more appealing was there was a fixed price offer on which couldn't be beaten for value. Make sure you visit

Friendly service, with a nice busy atmosphere. We both tried new curries from our normal ones and thoroughly enjoyed them. Would recommend

“Lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

I do love Indian food but am always dubious to try somewhere new. However, Mela does not disappoint. Additionally, I am a fan of spicy food but rarely find a curry 'hot' and their vindaloo was. Well done!

It is a little on the pricey side (a takeaway for 4 cost £45) but the food was superb and I would certainly return on our next visit to Bowness.
