Food here is worthy of a visit. Nothing that would rate as outstanding, but enjoyable, wholesome street food. The décor is not trying very hard but I guess it doesn't need to. Worth dropping by for a quiet meal before heading off to the night spots of Northbridge!

Mela has painstakingly recreated an Indian restaurant in the Sikh Punjab, down to its tacky fit out (i love the roller door that separates the restaurant a homage to industrial chic), obligatory funky looking grime build up under the counters, and a menu which encapsulates Glaswegian Chicken Tikka Marsala, and a strange assortment of Vindahloo's (NB its only made with...

We were in Perth for business and a colleague took us here for dinner. Great Indian food. The thali is definitely the way to go because you get a bit of everything. They allow BYO which was also handy.

Almost every time I go to this restaurant, I would order the Seafood Thai or non-Veg Thali which is filling. The Okra Curry which is also available as a Friday Lunch special will make you drool.

This restaurant does not have functioning aircon, despite appearances. The food arrives very slowly or not at all. Bring a sandwich ! No obvious concept of customer service, or the ability to recognise errors. We asked several times where our main course was, and eventually left having paid only for the food that did arrive. We have visited this place... More

We have been going to Mela for years and the food has always been great and tasty. Tonight the food was very tasteless. The Idli we ordered was not fresh. The sambar was very tasteless. The coconuts chutneys did not have much flavour. The service was really slow. This is the longest we have waited for food there and no... More

We have been visiting this restaurant from its inception and the food and service have been excellent. Visitors from interstate always ask to go back for their Masala Dosai. Unfortunately, the experience yesterday was very disappointing - understand the Manager has changed. Service was very slow - when they took our order they did not write it down and we... More
