visited Mela last night as staying nearby, almost missed it, glad we didn't as we had a lovely meal and were looked after brilliantly by the young guys who worked there; I am always a wee bit disappointed if I can't get draft indian beer in a restaurant, but they had 500ml bottles of budvar for £3.60 which was fair,...

My partner has always said he didn't like curry. However this place changed his mind. With the help of a kind waiter giving his advice he made a choice that suited him. He enjoyed the meal thoroughly! The choices are good and decent prices. Bangladesh food v tasty. Booking advisable late evening.

Me and my husband came here tonight because we'd visited 2 years ago and had an amazing meal then! We were not disappointed! Fantastic food, the best naga curry we have ever tasted! The service was brilliant... we liked the fact that they asked us if we wanted a little time between courses which a lot of places do not... More

We've just enjoyed a takeaway from Mela and were saying how it's always just so good! So good that it deserves a review! We enjoy their takeaways regularly and no matter what we order it's always delicious. The portions are good (I usually have leftovers) and the meat is real! What I mean is I've been to places where the... More

This takeaway was sadly quiet in January , not helped by roadworks at the end of Ash Street. We had chicken karai which was delicious with just the right combination of spices. Staff were pleasant and friendly.

We tried this restaurant after our daughter recommended it to us. We enjoyed the food and the service from Ali was excellent. Good food, good wine and good service, we would definitely recommend.

It was dirty. The curry was awful, portion was tiny had about two pieces of chicken. My partner had lamb which was tough and... More
