Description: Worcestershires most refined Indian Restaurant.Established in 2001. Eat India group have already established a string of renowed restaurants in the Midlands. The standards of cuisine and ambience are higher than ever before, but they never forget that with their loyal clients, many of whom have become friends, none of this would be possiable. So relax and enjoy the Cafe Mela experience. We hope you'll love it. Quality, flavours & service. Food with personality.

Tried to make a phone order gave him a full address and postcode for delivery takeaway. even offered to pay in advance. I was told can't deliver without a phone number which I couldn't provide due to it being a new number. surely in this day and age any business that offers delivery especially in a place as small as worcester have a sat nav.

Since our previous visit which was extremely enjoyable they have changed the menu and general decor.
The food was terrific, service was good and prices low for the standard of food served.
I highly recommend this restaurant

When we turned up our table wasn't ready despite booking one. When we were sat we were put in a cramped area of the restaurant that smelt of damp.

We had to wait around 30 minutes for our drinks order and we were served water down larger when we'd asked for Cobra.

We made our food order and we were told we couldn't have sides with our main meals.

Our poppadum’s came and they were obviously microwave ones you can buy in the super market.

2 hours after we had arrived we hadn't had our main course so we paid for what we had had and left.

The food I have and here in the past has been good but this time I didn't get chance to try it

Party of 25 we were very well looked after with attentive service and food arriving quickly!

Hadn't visited before and reading negative reviews on here had made me nervous!

I would very much recommend the thalis - on last page of menu! Very good value with lots of different curries to try comes with rice&naan.
Must be honest though couldn't finish it after starters of onion bhajis and paneer but nice waiter put it in takeout boxes for me to take home!

Overall fab would come back. Food is very good service is very good.

I'm not from Worcester so was unfamiliar with the area and didn't know that parking is a problem, so taxi/drop off recommended. Opposite the restaurant there are about 10car park spaces free after 6:30, I went around the block around 3 times then managed to find a space.
