We usually manage a visit to the Lake District once a year and our destination of choice is Bowness - on -Windermere, this is due to it's central location & lively atmosphere. We have visited the Mela Restaurant on 3 or more occasions and have enjoyed great curries& excellent, friendly service every time. Their prices are also very reasonable (... More

We visited the Mela last week during a visit to the Lakes I was pretty underwhelmed by the experience - don't get me wrong the food was OK, the service decent but I just think that the Lakes and curry just don't seem to go together...I've honestly never had a really good curry experience in the Lake District and have...

I went there 26.11.16 and was a little perturbed by the foul language and grotty appearance, despite this we ordered drinks and popadoms. The popadoms came after the drinks and we found that the top one was complete but the one below was partly eaten. This had been retrieved from another table. I challenged the arrogant rude staff member who... More

Popped in after a Sunday afternoon spent sampling the local hostelries. Had the winter warmer special two course offer. Nice mixed starter followed by a good portion of tasty curry served by friendly staff. Would definitely return when next in area.

Love Indian/Bangladeshi food, but never had any in Bowness. Tried the Winter Warmer, set meal. The best food we had during our week stay in Bowness, and very good value. I had the naga lamb which was comparable with our favourite Indian/Bangladeshi restaurant. The service was good, and good surrounding. Will definitely go again.
