Mela is a great option for Indian food- there aren’t many others around, but the quality stands out. I do think their menu (lunch/dinner) is a bit pricey, especially for takeout.

Caroline, February 22, 2018

It was good. I got my meal to go and they didn't provide me with forks or napkins. Also without the coupon, I would say the meal was a little expensive for what it was.

The food was great I’ll definitley be back

Lauren, December 4, 2017

The food was great for the most part. Our grilled meats were passable, but overall I would recommend this place. They should also really subscribe for commercial free pandora. It ruins the atmosphere a bit to hear commercials in a restaurant.

Muslimah, December 4, 2017

Excellent! Cauliflower is particularly nice and fresh.

Sharon, November 12, 2017

Picked up dinner from Mela tonight. Quickly prepared and delicious!

Jessie, November 10, 2017

The food is more expensive than other Indian restaurants in the city, and not necessarily any better. They don’t give papdum like most other places and most of the food is extremely rich to the point of excess. The naan is amazing though and the staff very nice and attentive.

Katie, November 8, 2017

Super friendly, food is excellent!

Katie, November 6, 2017

Food was great. Service felt a bit rushed, but definitely attentive.

Stephanie, October 19, 2017

we got take out . delicious, huge portions and great price for the south end

Maureen, October 15, 2017

The food was delicious, and they were very friendly and polite. Their quote time for food was way off, it took about double the time they estimated me. Other than that, I would definitely go there again.

Lauren, October 12, 2017

The food and service was spectacular! I would highly recommend folks to stop by! The place is all so fabulous

Lydia, February 20, 2017

I had asked a friend how was it when she went, she said it was an good experience. I too liked the experience of trying Indidan food for the first time. I also thought the restaurant looked nice with its low lights, though the music of American rock sort of threw me off, but they changed the music later. Over all I will come back and experiment with the food.

Gem of a place so close to home. Loved it and will be back soon.
