We came expecting good tasty food but unfortunately it did not live up to our expectations. We had the vegetarian options. The bhuna did not taste like a bhuna and the pickle tray wasn't very interesting. My husband and I had a slightly dodgy stomach the next day too which we don't normally get from eating Indian food. Was disappointed... More

The staff in this small restaurant were helpful and welcoming but the atmosphere was not helped by the decor and the poor quality seating. The food was bland and not very warm and the quality of the chutneys offered was poor. The bottled water was not chilled. Unfortunately, one of our group spent most of the night vomiting afterwards so... More

Returned to Windemere for the second time, enjoyed another meal at Mela. At 6pm on a Saturday, without a reservation, we were found a table for two immediately. The service was freindly, quick and efficient, without rushing us. Meals were excellent, prepared and delivered to us quickly. Highly recommended

My wife and I went here for a meal, based on a recommendation and I found the food to be very good. The problem was, we were seated down-stairs, in what to me, felt like a seating area where you would wait for a take-away..? That said, the food was good and a decent price.

My husband and I were very tired from sight seeing earlier in the day, we probably should have thought about booking somewhere for dinner in the evening as even though it was a Tuesday night, a couple of places that caught our eyes were fully booked. We opted for here for ease, it doesn't look especially fancy from the outside.... More

We found this when looking for somewhere that could fit us in. Not easy with 7 people and 2 prams. The service was lovely, friendly and helpful. The food was amazing. Really fresh and tasty. We had a lovely meal, well priced. Worth a visit.

I have been going this Indian restaurant now for many years and the food and service have always been excellent, always welcomed by the owner who meets my strange Nan bread request, but due to selling our sited caravan I have not been for 3 years, I revisited here on Friday evening with a friend who had never been before...

Location??? Well just diagonally opposite (right) to Tesco Express. Set is nice… we visited this place for Dinner. We tried seafood (salmon and prawns)+ vegetables dish. Taste was really good and quantity was sufficient for us. Its reasonable price wise. Can definitely recommend this place for taste and service!!

We booked a lodge in Fallbarrow leisure park in Bowness last year and this year and we have ordered a takeaway from the Mela each time, while the girls were left in the lodge my mate and myself went to pick up the meal (as it is only 5-10 mins from the lodge) stopping on the way for refreshments at...
