“Our experience of Mela”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

On a work trip to Swindon, four expert eaters decided to re-fuel at Mela. The aroma and the clean restaurante is what drew us in.
Pros:
Clean, smelt good, Nice staff, Quick service, One of the waiters looked like a tall Nic Nac (james bond), Tastey food and good choice on the menu.
Cons:
Waiters did not want us to keep the pickle tray for our main meals, a couple of waiters wouldnt have cracked a smile if i had walked in naked, expensive (£100 for 4 is expensive in my opinion), a couple of the dishes were not spicy enough, a lot of bones in the fish dish, the deserts were bought in and not made.
Overall we were very happy and give it an actual rating of 3.8 out of 5.
Out of 4 of us, 2 would go again!!! Make of that what you will

“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!
