I have been meaning to go to Mela for quite some time. The whimsical lighting and copper walls make the restaurant much more posh relative to other Indian restaurants. We enjoyed the non-vegetarian multi-course meal for two for $45 and would definitely return again. The menu also had organic chicken dishes, which was a separate menu.
Mulligatawny Soup, spicy hot soup with lentils and spices ($4)
The meat samosas were served with a fresh salad served with a yogurt and mustard seed dressing.
Palak Paneer, spinach cooked with paneer was smooth and light.
Tandoori Mixed Grill, sizzling tandoori chicken, lamb boti kebab
Gulab Jamun, deep fried wheat and milk ball, soaked in syrup
The Kheer rice pudding was a must get again.
