    (Best of Boston 2013-INDIAN) Improper Bostonian says, "Sanskrit for "fair", Mela offers tandoori dishes and classic curries that are your ticket for a joyride through Indian cooking."

    Garlic naan melts in your mouth. Also, make sure to take advantage of the free mango lassi when you check-in.

    Food is great, but if you want to save money when you eat here get an eGift card from Raise.com. I bought two and there are only a few left. Here's a link to the Raise page: http://bit.ly/10iOZYR.

    One of the best Indian food places in Boston. Won't give you the runs. Bring friends here and eat slowly.

    Try the dinner for two. Very flexi and a smart option. Works out very well. The only complaint about this place is they expect a lot of tip or gratuity

    If I were on a deserted island... Mela would be the one restaurant I needed. Chicken tikka masala, onion naan and a mango lassi. Copper colored walls & glitter table tops. This is my happy place.
