Boston’s South End has rapidly become a culinary destination in its own right. To find the neighborhood’s first Indian restaurant, look for the striking blue and gold windows of MELA on Tremont Street, a unique dining space that has struck a chord with residents here since the day it opened in 2007.

    Server was very helpful with food and wine suggestions, the food was excellent and the service was perfect. We will likely try their weekend brunch. We look forward to our next visit.

    I normally do not leave reviews but I had very high expectations of this restaurant. The plates kept on table were dirty, had to get them replaced. Most of the plates and dishes in which the food was served were chipped. I had ordered paneer chilli, and the paneer was that bad, that hard, that I literally had to take it out my mouth as it was not chewable. Overall very disappointed. A lower end Indian restaurant would serve better food.

    Reliably good Indian food. The restaurant is quite small and a little cramped but the noise level isn’t bad at the location is wonderful

    Food is always good as is the service. The cocktails were also good once they got it correct.

    My family come here for lunch once or twice a month, the food and the service never fail you. The food are fresh, delish and the buffet is also the best pick for whom want to try Indian food for the first time. Love the services, very attentive and friendly. Strongly recommended.
