Mela Cuisine of India

Ridgewood, NJ offers a lot of restaurants. Mela serves great Indian cuisine. There are tastes that appeal to everyone: tandoori specials and fresh breads, basmati rice dishes, appetizers, soups, seafood, chicken, lamb, and so much more. I found myself enjoying the butter chicken and naan. The sampler appetizer platter is a great way to get everything under the sun without missing anything at all. Lassis are always a must for your drinking pleasure. Lunch specials are a good way to try out this place that starts at $9.95. The place is BYO to enjoy with your favorite dish.

Great Indian tastes and smell...

Great sit-down Indian restaurant. I really enjoyed the buffet served during lunch. A lot of great flavors and wonderful food. I always have to get a lassi drink whenever I eat at an Indian restaurant. This one was done very well. Definitely worth the trip into Ridgewood for good exotic food like this.

India Comes to Ridgewood @ Mela

Ridgewood is known for its variety of restaurants. If you walk down the street, it feels like a cultural exchange program going from Turkey to Indonesia to Italy to China to India. Mela is a great Indian restaurant that has been around for many years attracting all types of curious people wondering what Indian food is all about. It ha shaken my a while to find out myself but once I did I knew Mela was the place to try out.

The aromas really hit you when you walk into the place and it feels both exotic and inviting. Not knowing what to try I definitely felt that the appetizer sampler was the way to do it. I have do admit that I now have a fondness for samosas and pakoras. That’s, of course, after I got used to the spices. Once I did I knew I could handle what was in store for me.

The butter chicken is such a simple concoction but extremely tasty dish. I definitely feel in love with it and knew I found a winner. This was even better with both the basmati rice and naan on hand. Both give the curry a different texture in taste but was very complementary.

During the meal I was treated to a nice mango lassi. It’s like a milkshake but made with buttermilk. After the mean I indulged with a nice hot chai.

I was impressed with Mela and definitely have a great fondness for Indian food. Here’s to future jaunts with exotic spices.
