We came here on a Saturday night whim. We live nearby and fancied a curry! We ordered very basic mild stuff, a korma and a tikka masala, as well as a Tarka Dahl, 2 types of nan and some poppadoms. All of the food came quickly and was really tasty. Much as I love a hot curry the sweet gravy of these mild curries with their coconut flavour was just what we wanted.

Visited this restaurant on many occasions and never been disappointed so today chose this venue to celebrate my Birthday and eight of us enjoyed the Sunday lunchtime menu. Restaurant was quiet but we were very well looked after by Peter and all enjoyed our meal. Various starters were ordered and consumed and enthusiastically, and the mains arrived and were served very nicely, and again enjoyed with lots of complimentary comments from the diners. We as a family really enjoy this restaurant on our visits and we would recommend this as one of the best in Christchurch. Thanks Peter for looking after us and we will see you soon.

We had a vegetable balti and a vegetable biryani. They were lovely. Plenty of food and very reasonably priced.

We had 2 starters which were fine. Our mains were really bland and the sauces were watery. The jalfrezi tasted of chilli, but not much else. The bhuna and butter chicken dishes tasted of very little.

We visited Mela yesterday .we had not booked but we were quickly placed.
The food was excellent.The curries were up to my taste .The tandoori items were soft and juicy too. Thanks to the chef's.
The staff who served us was very polite and smiling. He was moving all around for the service.
We will be back by the end of this month.
