I'm very impressed by the attention to customer service, asked for two things not on the menu and they happily obliged. The meals were served quickly and most importantly were extremely nice. I highly recommend

Dining area has great atmosphere, though a little squeezy. Staffs are friendly, and services are speedy. Food taste great, but portion considered small compared to other Indian restaurants. The serving time is however very long, it took about 30mins before our appetizer was served, and that was only 3 pieces of fried Samosa. Our main dish was not served until... More

This is the second time I've been here, first with my partner and it was lovely. And we decided to come back with my daughter this time as it was my birthday. As soon as we walked in we where greeted nicely. The staff where very polite, and the food was very delicious. The staff bent over backwards for us,... More

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.
