"Service was generally very attentive, even though the restaurant was close to full not long after we walked in. The food, however, was the star of the show. We ordered three appetizers; the cold one that I can't remember the name of was OK, but the samosa bites were very good and the vegetable pakoras were amazing. As to the entrees - I judge all Indian restaurants by the quality of their chicken tikka masala (even though the dish was invented in the UK), and Mela's was one of the best I've had in California. My dining companions ordered a vegetarian saag dish with potatoes and another vegetarian entree with eggplant; they both really liked the saag, but I didn't care for it, because I just don't like cooked spinach in any form, so there's no great surprise here. The eggplant dish was a hit with everyone at the table. Oh, and the garlic naan. YUM! Soft, warm, and with a slight bit of crispiness to it - perfect for soaking up all of that tikka sauce. Forget the rice (nothing special about it - it's just rice) and order more naan. It will be calories well spent. Definitely plan to go back and maybe not order so many appetizers so as to save room for dessert."

"Amazing spices & refined dishes.
The first things I noticed coming in were the low intimate lights in the restaurant and the nice Mela clay plates on the table.
I ordered aloo goobi and it wasn't plain cauliflower with sauce. The spices used were mild and stood out from other indian restaurants. The veggies tasted super fresh which I loved! It isn't always the case in other places.
The naan was very doughy and almost tasted like pizza dough. Hubby had chicken tikka masala which was good! We've come back several times to try many of the entrees and EVERYTHING was GREAT!
We've ordered in as well and it was almost as good as in the restaurant. One of my favorite indian restaurant in SF!"

"We've always overlooked this place since it's on a sketchy stretch of Golden Gate Avenue. But we found the food to be quite tasty and the prices very reasonable. Obviously, others have known about it for a while since it was fairly packed on a Saturday evening with a birthday party happening in the second floor area."

"The air was extremely smoky, the food was oily and the service was terrible. There are many great Indian places in the bay area but this is not one of them."

"Great food, generous portions, thoughtful servers, an attractive atmosphere, and close to parkng and the Davies Symphony Hall -- all at a very competitive price! Mela Tandoori Kitchen has become our favorite "Pre-Symphony" restaurant."
