“Great choice”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

Arrived very late in the evening so we opted for a takeaway. The choice was very good and the service was friendly. If we'd eaten in, we could have taken our own wine. As it was, we had a very respectable meal with generous portions.

“Rubbish”
Reviewed November 19, 2013

I have been a customer for 3 years and untill recently it was very good. The last few times I have been though the food has been terrible and after giving them the benefit of the doubt a couple of times I have had to stop going. The issues have included undercooked lamb and naan, very tough overcooked lamb and lamb chops and rubbery chicken.

It appears it isn't just me of this opinion either as a once thriving restaurant is always pretty empty now. Very dissapointing but it's not the first time an indian I've frequented has gone this way, I have a feeling cost cutting and complacency are to blame.

“Takeaway”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Have had several takeaways and we have never been disappointed. We usually get the Lamb Rogan Josh with Keema Rice and Naan. There is a 15% discount on the menu price for collection. Services is excellent. We have also eaten in the restaurant and have not been disappointed.

“Mela delight, Mela indian in Urmston”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

We live in Urmston and love our curries. Everything down to the pickle tray is spot on and there is never a "rush you in, rush you out" sort of thing. They have excellent chefs curries as well as the more well known favorites. The service is spot on and the staff friendly and helpful..If your'e visiting Urmston, or you haven't tried this place yet, give it a try. We usually have a stater, 2 curries, 2 rice and bread for £25 on average.

“Super service delicious food”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

We had a small gathering of family and friends to celebrate an occasion and it all went splendidly, the service was great as was the food and it all made a wonderful evening with no hassle or looking at watches. All in all a super place to eat good food the only down side was we have lived in Urmston for 25 years and this was only our second visit!!!!
