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...

Enjoyed another lovely meal at the Mela. Good size portions (we always share), good quality and great value £38 for three of us. The fact that you can take your own booze makes dining out a bargain.
