Staying down the road fancied some veg food and Bombay Mela came up in search. Having lived in India 6 years I can honestly say this is the best Indian food outside of the Desi. You must go. Very unassuming staff and unexpected deliciousness. Indian chefs, authentic......mmmmm :)

This is one of the best Indians in the area from the point of view of food. There are options on the menu you don’t find anywhere else, for example, rabbit and lamb shank curries and chicken chettinad, among others, and you can see the staff cooking, as the kitchen is sort of open plan into the dining area. They... More

Dined in the evening with 3 family members. After a pleasant welcome, drinks and papadum arrived quickly while we chose our starters and mains. The food was fresh and well-presented. We made a specific request about the preparation of one dish and the chef got it spot on. Great place to eat.

We came here for lunch as it had been recommended for it's choice of vegetarian dishes. They were operating a fix price lunch buffet with limited vegetarian options so we decided to order from the main menu. Wish we hadn't bothered. Poppadums were stale and chutneys were served in small catering pack plastic containers! The spinach samosas were made with... More

Bombay Mela's location is not great situated as it is in a terrace just beside a roundabout on the A25 between Reigate and Redhill. But it's very close to Reigate County Court in a more ludicrous location where I found myself stranded at lunchtime awaiting a judgment. Hence the proximity of Mela proved useful. The interior is modern, prosaic and... More

I have visited this restaurant 4-5 times. Sometimes food is below average and sometimes average. Consistency is not there in the food. Behavior of some staff is very good while others is very rude. It depends on your luck which one is serving you. Ambiance is very basic.

We visited this restaurant 4-5 times. Last weekend we visited this restaurant. They don't have baby nappy change room. And we asked for table or stool to manager. he rudely said no. They have charged even the onion and chutney, which is usually free in any Asian restaurant. Even they have not mention in menu that it is chargeable. Actually... More

Description
With its bright modern decor and a charming patio garden Mela has fast become a regular for discerning locals who appreciate the true taste of Mela's regional Indian food. A large car park on the doorstep makes it very convenient too. Our tasty menu is available for takeout. We can also prepare wraps and finger food for business lunches and private parties.
Good service is a high priority at Mela where you'll be greeted warmly and treated like a VIP throughout your visit. From the foothills of the Himalayas to the warm seas of the coast, Mela reflects the hugely varied and inspiring cuisine of India, opening minds and stomachs to more than your usual tikka masala. Colourful, robust in flavour and evocative of the subcontinent, every dish is prepared with care and great attention to detail.
