Mela Tandoori Kitchen – San Francisco Indian Restaurant


Considered one of the best Indian restaurants in Bay Area, Mela offers an exquisite assortment of Indian and Pakistani selections to please everyone’s taste buds. 


The word “Mela” means “carnival” or “fair,” and when the Mela comes to your village, it means an explosion of color, fun, good times, and some great food as well. Mela Tandoori Kitchen evokes that same spirit with colorful, striped walls, glittering candles, and the kind of fragrant Indian and Pakistani dishes that draw everyone out to the Mela back home. 


Serving some of the best Indian food San Francisco can offer, Mela has an extensive yet simplified menu. We prepare all of our food using only the freshest, in-season ingredients, and serve only Halal/Zabihah meat, guaranteeing an amazing culinary experience.


So whether you’re here for a light meal or a full-on feast, make sure to try some of our signature items, including the CTMac ‘n’ Cheese, Achaari Tikka, Mixed Grill, Chicken Tikka Masala (a staff favorite), Mattar Paneer, the many different Naans, and of course the always delectable dessert Faluda, and find out why we’re considered one of the best Indian restaurants in San Francisco. 


With so much ado about everything, we look forward to hosting your gathering or intimate dinner. Thank you for becoming our guest and for choosing to take a stroll through our Mela!
