Description: With its bright modern decor and a charming patio garden Mela has fast become a regular for discerning locals who appreciate the true taste of Mela's regional Indian food. A large car park on the doorstep makes it very convenient too. Our tasty menu is available for takeout. We can also prepare wraps and finger food for business lunches and private parties. Good service is a high priority at Mela where you'll be greeted warmly and treated like a VIP throughout your visit. From the foothills of the Himalayas to the warm seas of the coast, Mela reflects the hugely varied and inspiring cuisine of India, opening minds and stomachs to more than your usual tikka masala. Colourful, robust in flavour and evocative of the subcontinent, every dish is prepared with care and great attention to detail.

Although busy, they do try hard but do not succeed. Service was disjointed and staff came across unsure and anxious. Food was good although the overall meal was let down by inadequate service.

I think it helped that we were only a group of five as opposed to 30 that time the large number it the was difficult for them.

The food and service were of excellent quality and with a pay and display car park right opposite it was so easy to find and get located.

We all had different dishes and I did not hear any complaints from any of our group.

The only negative is usually if you want something that is not on the menu in an Indian restaurant t usually happily make it fresh. I asked for some Rajma (Kidney Beans and Potato's) but they were unable to help which was a slight disappointment.

I have never been here before December 2012 and have now visited twice. Once in a group and once with a friend. On both occasions staff were nice, friendly and helpful. Food is excellant and simply the best Indian I have tried in my life. Expensive but in my mind worth it. It is out of town and so not well known but it is a very nice place to spend the evening.

The food is tasty (The taste wouldn't match the Indian restaurants in India though). The atmosphere is good. Car parking is available in front of the restaurant but it is pay and display. free after ?6pm. The prices are inflated. They give discounts depending on the number of people dining. For that you need to have a membership card. The quantity of food was less compared to other restaurants.
I may visit again but probably not frequently.
