Offering an assortment of Indian dishes to tempt the palate, Mela’s selection will not disappoint. The restaurant takes its name from the Hindi term for a traditional country festival – or a mela – which is celebrated across India. Mela’s menu reflects this idea, with dishes from different areas in India. There’s something for everyone on the menu, from those who like something spicy to those who want to play it safe. It’s guaranteed to make even the pickiest eater salivate.
A Modern Twist to Traditional Indian Cuisine
White walls and modular art pieces may rocket some restaurants into pretension, but not Mela. These modern elements mixed with warm lighting and a friendly wait staff make for an inviting and elegant atmosphere. Mela features the same modern flair on its menu. Featuring popular favourites such as such as mulligatawny soup and butter chicken, the restaurant takes traditional dishes and uses different spices to make old dishes new again. Known best for its Tandori Mixed Grill options, Mela offers titillating menu choices for both meat-lovers and vegetarians alike.
Room to Experiment
For those who are new to Indian cuisine, Mela is a perfect choice. Its lunch menu offers room to experiment with Indian dishes made with the Canadian appetite in mind. That includes milder choices, but the kitchen will always spice things up if asked. The menu offers a varied selection of dishes and if there’s still room after your main meal, there are a handful of traditional Indian desserts to sink your teeth into.
