Square Meal Review of Mela ?

Handily located close to Cambridge Circus, Mela pulls in local workers & theatre types with its authentic Indian food at streetwise prices: set menus offer two/three courses for £9.95/15.95 at lunch, or £10.95 for three courses pre-theatre. The open kitchen (‘a good sign’) looks out over a dining room decorated with colourful wall hangings & ethnic motifs, as chefs dispense an array of fresh, flavoursome pan-Indian dishes. Start with griddled tuna infused with lime juice, ginger & honey or crispy ragda patties served with spiced white peas. Then choose from an interesting selection of mains including the signature lobster pepper fry, kozi vertha (chicken with coconut, fennel & curry leaves), lamb rogan josh & Goan fish curry – each matched with a suggested wine. Freshly baked breads & sides such as yellow lentils with mango complete the feast. Child-friendly, & a safe bet for vegetarians, too.
