Great restaurant with briliant food, service and atmosphere. Food was exquisite with every taste being catered for. 11 people en mass isn't easy to cater for in a busy full restaurant but they handled it superbly. Food was delivered quickly and efficiently and the added bonus was we drank our own wine we purchased beforehand with no corking charge. Why... More

We ate at Mela on Saturday night, two couples. Good job we'd booked as it was packed and unsurprisingly so! The staff are very welcoming and can't do enough for you. They don't have a licence for alcohol so you can take your own. The food was beautifully cooked and plentiful. No complaints and wouldn't hesitate to return!

The Mela is by far the best Indian restaurant in Urmston, and over my entire life of living here I've been to them all. It's a firm favourite with all my family and friends, and it is always appreciated when they stay open late until we leave, even if the rest of the restaurant has vacated. I love the fact... More

We went to this restaurant for a family birthday and we had a party of 10. The restaurant accommodated us no problem and the food was delicious. The restaurant doesn't have a license to serve alcohol so the bring your own keeps the price down. Will definitely be calling back.

This place is the best curry house in Urmston. The service is excellent. The food is fresh and tasty and the prices are very reasonable. They really look after their customers and seem to genuinely care that people are having a good time. You can also take your own drinks and are offered glasses, pint pots, bottle openers etc. Its...
