We had an early evening meal in Mela and the staff were very friendly and courteous. The food was excellent and the authentic Indian music creating a nice authentic feel. So many Indian restaurants these days play western music in the background and it spoils the ambiance somewhat. If your in Bowness and your looking for good food at a good price then you won't go far wrong popping in here for a curry. Enjoy!

me and my partner ate here on a Tuesday night, we arrived at around 20.00 and were told upstairs was full so would we mind sitting downstairs. This was not a problem, however laster on it was noted that another couple who had not booked were taken directly up stairs in the table we were told was not available (he showed us on a CCTV screen.) the waiter downstairs appeared incredibly nervous throughout our service. He was awkward to watch during serving others. the food came quickly and was of a reasonable quality. However I have eaten at much nicer Indian restaurants. The atmosphere was spoilt by the server downstairs who on several occasions came to ask if we wanted our starter to which we replied we have already eaten it - you removed the plates. Maybe he was stressed or maybe lacked confidence in his job role.
I would recommend you want quick service and can sit upstairs, but as mentioned this was no where near the best curry we have eaten. Just average.

The Restaurant's upstairs, in the centre of Bowness & a little small, so i'd recommend booking for peak times. But the food was excellent. The Best Indian i & our friends have had. Really good value for money too.

Highly recommended.

We've been here many times and always found the food and service to be excellent.
It can get very busy though and when it does, some of the lesser used tables are used and they can be a tight fit.
Overall, well worth a visit.
