Try here it's a good Indian, u won't be let down, but it's not the best tasty wise. Service was good, not too pricey. Loads of food, just not that tasty and a bit greasy. Not enough chutneys with the paps either.

Good food and friendly service, only a small restaurant so Is probably advisable to book, good atmosphere and is usually busy.

Chicken pakoras were nice and crispy, lamb chops weren't very fresh. Had chicken jalfrezi for main dish and usually get one to share as one each is too much but the portions were tiny, 5 pieces of chicken! Not the tastiest dish, very hot. Was left unsatisfied

Visited the restaurant whilst in Bowness with my seven year old son on a short holiday. One of the best Indian meals I've ever had. In fact was so good we ate here two nights running! Staff very friendly and attentive. Couldn't do enough and were more than happy to accommodate any requests. Lovely place and deserves the good reviews... More

Enjoyed a veggie madras and aloo dish, good service, not expensive. Would eat there again. Seemed popular, friendly staff.

We visited Mela on a wet evening in August but was very warm. The restaurant was full but they still managed to accommodate us without affecting other diners. The food and service were top quality, and reasonably priced. The owner even placed another fan in my wife's direction to cool her down, it's the little things that make your visit... More

We ate at the Mela last Friday and once again the food was excellent. I can't remember the name of the curry but according to my husband, his curry with aubergine was 'the best curry I've ever had'. Absolutely first class service and very good value.

4 of us were pleased with 4 different choices. Nicely spiced good sauces. Wine choices fair. Upstairs dining area quite warm when fan was added became more comfortable. Friendly helpful service.

We had to wait for a table, always a good sign, and were delighted with both the food and the service. Both variety on the menu and the quality of what we ordered was great!

This is quite a small restaurant and there is only limited seating capacity. When we were there (on a Sunday evening) the place was rammed but where isn't in the Lakes in August. Most importantly the food was well flavoured and balanced and presented by cheerful and helpful staff. A bit of a surprise to find such good Indian food... More
