Staying nearby in a large cottage, we pre-arranged a take-away for 14 people, including 5 vegetarians. Having eaten inside Mela before we had no hesitation in trying their take-away menu. The food was delicious and kept everyone happy! Special mention for the great service - even helped us to load our food into the car on a very wet evening!

We ate here on a warm Saturday night, luckily sat upstairs by an open window which was probably the best place to sit. The service was generally OK and the food though pretty normal stuff, was good, and reasonable price for the quality.

This easily is in my top 3 Indian Restaurants ever, the food was exceptional with the freshest flavours I have experienced. The Bhuna was the best I have ever tasted and the spices in the chilli rice was delightful

The restaurant is centrally located , but will only let you in of you Order a main food dish and not just a starter . I had jalfrezi and this was good but I'm used to more spicy food . Service was direct and not much banter. The samosas looked like the type you get frozen and fry rather than... More

Went for a meal on 30th June for my birthday. It was one of the best indian meals we have ever had. The service was excellent as was the food. Would not hesitate to recommend it and will certainly come back.

Thank Susan C
