Over the course of the evening, we found ourselves dealing with about four different members of the staff, all of whom tended to be clueless about their basic job.
The food was delicious. The portions a bit small. Service was great. Overall, I would highly recommend this restaurant.
We reserved a table at Mela Tandoori for dinner before a 7:00 event at the Herbst Theater, only 2 blocks away. We were immediately seated, had a very tasty dinner, the price was moderate, and we had no trouble getting to our event.
The food was wonderful. The wait staff very attentive and courteous. We will certainly come again when we are in the city.
Took my girlfriend there on Valantine‘s Day and we both loved it, even though we had to wait quite a bit, because there were a lot of people. It was worth the wait. We love indian food and this is one of the best places we ever went to.
The wait was painful, they didn’t account for Valentine’s Day (somehow). Our reservation for 7pm got us seated at 7:30. First appetizers came at 8, and food came at 8:30 (we ordered promptly at 7:30 since we had half an hour to read the menu).
The food was fantastic but I certainly won’t go on a busy night.
Really enjoyed our meal. The seafood tandoori wad very good, the naan excellent and a spicy chicken appetizer that was a special of the day was very tasty.
Then food is pretty good but you need to know what to order. The service staff but seemed overwhelmed by the number of parties that showed up. As another reviewer noted, be prepared to wait for 15 minutes to be seated even if you have a reservation. This place is good for everyday Indian food.
Amazing, amazing food. Just the worst service I’ve ever experienced. But if you have time for your dinner to take over two hours, the food is truly fantastic!
We tried Mela Tandoori for dinner before we went to the symphony. It proved to be a very good choice. The food was very good, the service prompt and friendly and the atmosphere was lively.
