Beats Paradise and BiryaniMaxx. Very friendly staff and awesome food!!! Must try mutton biryani. All the appetizer were good. Truly authentic.

Went to celebrate my girlfriends birthday. Had the 10 course meal with wine pairings, which I highly recommend. This was the best dining experience we ever had. From start to finish it was truly amazing. Although VERY expensive in the end, it was worth every penny. The staff is excellent, the food is amazing, the atmosphere is perfect. If I could rate this a 8 I would.. but 5 will have to suffice.

Hmmm. An idea of fine dining that I hoped had died twenty years ago. Stuffy dated room with no natural light. "Pardon my reach" from the (otherwise charming) wait staff. And a $400 bill (with tip) for a decidedly mediocre dinner with some poor wine pairings. Admittedly that included truffle but that was meagrely handed out. You could spend this kind of money so much better elsewhere in LA.

Overpriced food, overrated service and you can do so much better at other fine dining establishments in Los Angeles.

Had a high expectation before going there, but the dining experience wasn't anything specially. Ordered 4 courses meal, add couple courses from other menus. I admit that they are good food, but definitely do not deserve 2 Michelin stars. The service is what disappointed me the most, take forever for me to get my server. When I ask to see the wine menu, I'll get responses:" one second sir, let me get your server"..... I mean, C'mon.. Just grab my menu please. None of other Michelin restaurants I've been have such poor services. They often go extra miles to make sure you have the best dining experience. But heard the Ten courses menu is better, double I would go back and try tho.. 2 stars for the service, 4 Stars for the food. Average 3 stars. Michelin stars - 0

Doug is an excellent server. After a stressful cab ride there, I had too much anxiety to even look at the menu. I told Doug what diet restrictions I have (there are many) and he did all of my ordering for me. He chose amazing dishes, one of which was the reason for me choosing Mélisse for my birthday dinner, and paired a great wine for the whole table. Everyone has such a great time and the food was excellent all around. Hats off to Doug, his helping staff that brought out every dish, and of course the chef of the night.
