“Melalicious indian food”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

Welcome greeting from the owners. Was taken upstairs for our table, there was no atmosphere at the top, would booked ground floor next time. Service was excellent, well looked after during our visit. The food was fresh and tasty. Do order one nan bread even if there are 4 of you as its humongous. Every item on the menu was reasonably priced.

“Our experience of Mela”
Reviewed 17 January 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 8 January 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.
