“yum yum”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Best curry house in Swindon, been there a few times with friends, found the food top notch and the service is great. I will be moving to Swindon soon and this will be the only curry house i will be going to, I have tried a few in the same area , but this is the best.

“Great Indian food & hospitality.”
Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

We enjoyed a fabulous meal with great recommendations from the menu which would suit our palate. Fantastic hosts and exlemepery service. The large Nan stole the show and could feed a family not just the two of us. If you are after good indian food try somewhere else. If however you want great indian food, then this should definitely be on your short list!

“Delicious Sunday buffet”
Reviewed December 22, 2013

Went here for the first time this evening to try the Sunday buffet. Pleasantly surprised - good choice of dishes, very fresh flavours and well cooked. Huge naan bread brought to the table. Staff very helpful and courteous. No bad comments - all very positive. Will definitely be coming back regularly from now on - excellent value for money.

“Always a good meal and attentive service”
Reviewed December 21, 2013

Our most recent visit was with friends, which happened to be mid-evening on one of those raucous end-of-week Christmas party evenings across town. There were a few work parties on other tables but, which always sorts the best from the poor, even on this evening the service and food was very good. The food is often similar in many places but the Mela's offering is different - it looks different, it tastes different and it just feels as though it was just made for you. The meals on the table do not have the blandness of other places, with the only difference being a change of colour of the sauce. Try it out, we doubt you will disappointed and remain quite confident you will return.

“Good quality curry house”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

Had a lovely meal here, was made to feel welcome.
The food was cooked well and had lots of flavour, it was quiet when we went as it was early evening so don't know what it is like when busy.
The staff were friendly and helpful and the food was lovely. Will definitely come here again
