Picked up a takeaway from here on Saturday night. Food for four was all very good and our friend said the best Indian meal they had ever had. Madras is very hot so beware! Everyone enjoyed the full meal though.

Went for a takeaway and I have to say it was one of the best Indians we have had. Very good variety and not too spicy. Its not often you return somewhere within a week but we went again as everyone enjoyed it so much.

Tucked in a side street this Indian restaurant makes really tasty food and nans. I loved their Keema nan. Had twice in a two day stay. Their other dishes were tasty too. Sag Aloo (spinach and potato) and Chicken Keema (minced) were simply delicious.

Friendly service, food was mainly good, though bhuna was bland and dry, complimentary poppadoms and chutney plus some random side dish that we still haven't worked out what it was

We ordered a take away from Mela, it was ready bang on the 30 minute collection time. The waiter who served us when we arrived was attentive and a very nice guy. Nice to have an indian which was not greasy to eat.
