Great meal. wonderful service. We always use the Mela as our go to resturant.
It was a nice atmosphere but the food we ordered wasn't quite up to our liking - the muttar paneer had some sugar added to it and the Naans were very thick in various regions. Spoke to the waiter afterwards and he said the chef can make it to our liking, next time. Sounds hopeful...
Food good but took over an hour to arrive despite only 2 out of 25 tables being occupied. Waiter seemed to have never handled plates before.
