Meal at Meluha, Bristol.

  • Oct 18, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • Meluha

I have heard good things about this Indian restaurant and would love to go. I have included a link to their website (it is not a budget option) and a link to soe reviews. I would probably want to limit the numbers as it's a very busy, popular restaurant.

    I probably won't be in time to get to Wetherspoons by 6.30 so will see you at Meluha at 7.15.

    October 18, 2013

      No worries Barrie. See you at Meluha.

      I'm on my way with a red Meetup sign. I'll try to get a table close to the door but look out for Meetup sign. It's my first Meetup event hosting so I'm nervous! :)

      October 18, 2013

  • Claire C

    Hi everyone just to confirm: either meet at Wetherspoons, Park St from 6.30pm tomorrow or see you at Meluha about 7.15. Table booked in the name of Claire/Meetup. Looking forward to meeting you all and having some lovely Indian food :)

    October 17, 2013

    • Claire C

      That would be great MJ. We're meeting at Wetherspoons at the top of Park St at 6.30pm then getting to the restaurant for about 7.15. The table is booked for 7.30 but the only have one sitting and we're welcome to go along any time from 6.30pm onwards when they open. Looking forward to meeting you.

      October 16, 2013

    • Claire C

      I can't change the list at the moment so just take it as read that you have a place :)

      October 16, 2013

  • Claire C

    Great. I'll be at 'Spoons at 6.30. I'll have a Meetup sign on my table :)

    October 15, 2013

  • Claire C

    Hi everyone just to let you know that the deposits have been paid to the restaurant so if anyone needs to cancel, I will try to get your deposit back but it is not guaranteed.

    October 15, 2013

  • Claire C

    Mervyn I have already paid the money to the restaurant. If I can get someone else to come along or if the restaurant will refund my I will try to get your deposit back. They did ask for a week's notice though so I will do my best.

    October 15, 2013

  • MervYn A.

    Although there is still the best part of three days to go,I think it only fair to tell you now to give someone else the best chance I can to take my place,that I will not be able to make Friday because I am currently unwell, with a heavy cold which has flu-like symptoms -which I certainly do not want to risk giving to someone else.

    I am really sorry about this, as I was so looking forward to meeting you all-and all that lovely Indian Food.

    However, I thought that this was the best and most helpful thing for me to do in the circumstances; and I'm sure you will understand.

    I hope that whoever can take my place(and all the rest of you),will have a lovely evening.

    October 15, 2013

  • MervYn A.

    I also like the idea of meeting you and others at the Wetherspoon before going on to Melhua.6.30 pm should be O.K for me

    October 11, 2013

  • Claire C

    Does anyone want to meet for a pre meal drink? I am thinking of going to Wetherspoons at the top of Park Street (opposite the uni). I could be there about 6.30.

      yeah I would be up for that Claire, this will be only my second meet up so I think that would be a good ice breaker :0)

      Hi Claire, I like the idea of a pre-meal drink at weatherspons, see you there (-:

      2 · October 11, 2013

  • Claire C

    This was also advertised on the Everything Meetup group. We have ten people now, all paid up, so I have closed the group. Thanks everyone and I look forward to seeing you all at the meal :)

    October 10, 2013

  • claire

    Hi Claire, Owen and Barrie have paid. Let me know when you want me to transfer the money to you. You may want to advertise it on another site in order to ensure you get your 10. James can post it on the Bath and Bristol Everything Group as a joint event. Hope this helps. Sorry I can't make it. need to save myself for the 19th in Bath. Claire :)

    October 7, 2013

  • Barrie W.

    Hi Claire. I have now made my payment of £10 into the meetup bank account. Thanks. Barrie.

      Great!! Looking forward to seeing you at the meal :)

      October 2, 2013

  • James

    Hi. Of those on the list Tim, Mervyn and Jani have paid the deposit into the meetup bank account. Everyone else still needs to pay as requested to reserve a place on this event. Please transfer the £10 into the meetup bank account as previously indicated. TSB Bank account: Miss Claire L Brash, Sort code:[masked], account no:20604560. As Claire needs to get the people to fill this booking I am giving just 48 hours then I will remove anyone who has not paid from the list. Many thanks, James

    September 30, 2013

    • James

      Forgot to say please include event name in your payment ref. Cheers.

      September 30, 2013

    • James

      Will need an update from Claire B later on who has or has not paid. Unless Claire C you know more than me?

      October 2, 2013

  • Claire C

    Hi Karen thanks for joining this event. Please could you pay £10 deposit to secure your place (redeemable against your meal). Details below... :)

    October 2, 2013

  • Tim H.

    Hi James and Claire C, agree with the terms of the meal

    September 30, 2013

  • Thurstan J.

    Sorry, I'm no longer able to make this one as I have discovered I'm double-booked! Have fun anyway :)

    September 28, 2013

    • Claire C

      Thanks for letting me know :)

      September 29, 2013

  • MervYn A.

    To the Claire concerned(cause there's apparently more than one),I have today transferred £Ten Pounds into your account, as a deposit payment for the meal at the Meluha on Friday Oct.18th 2013.

    Any problems,please let me know. When and how do you want my particular balance paid (depending, of course on what food I order):do we settle that individually with you and the restaurant at the time; or do you envisage it all going into some sort of communal pot for payment at the end,(-with each keeping some paper record of what they've ordered till then, or what?

    I must confess that I would much prefer to pay separately as I'm sure I would get totally confused and lost with the latter.

    1 · September 27, 2013

    • Claire C

      Thanks for letting me know. See above - but just to confirm, each will pay for their own food bill and the rest of the monies will be paid at the end of the meal. looking forward to it!

      September 27, 2013

  • MervYn A.

    Because I pressed the wrong button before I'd finished my last comment,I can only repeat that it was not really my fault since I can only reflect(not knowing anything different) what I saw place there(whether inaccurately or not),by whoever.

    Nevertheless, I can only ask again what you obviously didn't have time to answer before:What arrangement do you have in mind re paying the balance of the night's meal costs, depending of course, on what each individual chooses.

    As I've indicated, I would much prefer to pay mine separately. only because I think I would find some sort of communal arrangement too confusing

    I await your thoughts and preferences in this regard.

    September 27, 2013

    • Claire C

      Regarding tips, as it is a large party, I think the restaurant will put on a service charge. I also would agree with paying service charge except in the rare occasion that the service may not be up to scratch. Given that this is a fine dining restaurant, I can't imagine that the service will be anything but exemplary. So in that case, I would expect a service charge of aroudn 10-12%.

      September 27, 2013

    • Claire C

      So just to confirm, the rest of the monies to be paid at the end of the meal. I hope this is clear. If not, get back to me :)

      1 · September 27, 2013

  • Claire C

    Thanks Mervyn. There are lots of Claires in the world but only one me :)

    September 27, 2013

    • MervYn A.

      I take your point re there being lots of Claire's in this world; however, since I saw there was another Claire involved in this matter,(whether it WAS a mistake Or not by whoever by whoever placed it there not),I can

      September 27, 2013

    • Claire C

      Yes there are lots of Claires in this world and some of them are on this site so be prepared to be even more confused!

      September 27, 2013

  • Tim H.

    Hi Claire C, deposit made to the Meetup account. Any problems please let me know (-:

    1 · September 26, 2013

  • Claire C

    Hi everyone I now have the bank details for you to pay your £10 deposit.

    TSB Bank account: Miss Claire L Brash, Sort code:[masked], account no:20604560.

    Please put MELUHA on as the reference so that Claire can easily identify which is for this meal.

    I would like payment by next Friday 4th October as the table is provisionally booked and the restaurant need to know firmer numbers. Thanks :)

    September 26, 2013

    • James

      Thanks for getting this event sorted Claire. Sadly I am dropping out as have confirmed trip to Amsterdam which I need to save cash for. Sure this will be a great evening! If it goes down well will have to do another :)

    James ,The message I was referring to read as follows:...'if you have the meetup one from any events before you can use those, Claire will be providing one of those later...'

    Very puzzled and intrigued by that and, hopefully, you can enlighten by remembering who and what you were referring and replying to

    September 25, 2013

    • James

      Bank acct details for the meetup bank acct supplied by Claire who owns the group (Not the Claire hosting this).

      September 26, 2013

  • MervYn A.

    James ,can you please explain to me what your comment below means,as I'm totally mystified by the terminology you've used. there's obviously some historical connection that I'm not aware of

      Hi Jayni - thanks. It's likely that someone might drop out closer to the time so you have a good chance of getting on the guestlist.

    bank details needed then please.

    September 25, 2013

    Hi Claire

    Yes.I would definitely like to come to the meal at the Meluha on Friday, Oct.18th,if sufficient cancellations from those already accepted do occur and allow me to do so as at present, i still on the waiting list as far as I'm aware. So, please comment and update me on my status Asap.
    Thanks from Mervyn

    September 24, 2013

    Sorry this is my first ever event hosting & I haven't gone about it in a logical way so I do apologise. It will happen though & I think it will be great! :)

      Hi Claire, the frequent meal event planners all started with a first event. Praise to you for being an event planner.
      Yes, the date is now showing.

  • Claire C

    Hi guys I'm am in process of trying to book a larger table (10 people) but I will need £10 deposit from everyone. James is trying to sort out the way to pay so I will keep you posted.

    1 · September 24, 2013

  • MervYn A.

    Let me know more Asap, so I can decide if I can make the date preferred by the majority of positive responders, which I'm prepared to abide by.Otherwise, I think it would be a good thing for me to come to.

    September 24, 2013

    • Claire C

      Hi Mervyn there is a date - 18th October. It's a Friday. Please let me know if you can't see it as I put the date on yesterday so I'm concerned if its still showing no date.

      September 24, 2013

  • MervYn A.

    Thurstan, can you please clue me in as to why the RSVP has already closed on this event when no date for it has been decided yet? there is obviously a gap in my knowledge and understanding here

    September 24, 2013

  • Thurstan J.

    Sounds great but no date set yet! Shame that RSVP's have closed :(

    September 22, 2013

    • Claire C

      Thurstan can you join a waiting list? I'm not sure if I have set it up so that there is a waiting list. I am considering making it bigger so if your name was down you could come but that would mean getting deposits from people... see above...

      September 23, 2013

    • Thurstan J.

      Hi Claire, I have set up a waiting list for you. I have set the guest list maximum to 6 persons but can increase it if you would like

      September 24, 2013

  • Tim H.

    Hi Claire, I would like to attend. Some wise words from James, comment below, on admin for events.

    The Meluha web site is not working, however, on a positive note great reviews on Trip Advisor
    (-: Tim

    September 23, 2013

    • Claire C

      Tim can you see a wait list on this event? I'm not sure if there is an automatic waiting list and was hoping there would be as there might be people dropping out closer to the time. It's my first event and I would be sad if people didn't turn up :(

      September 23, 2013

  • Claire C

    I can increase the guestlist to 10 so another 4 people could come but that would mean everyone paying £10 deposit. I've never done an event before so this is becoming complicated!!

    September 23, 2013

  • Claire C

    Can everyone check that they are ok with this date?

    September 23, 2013

  • Claire C

    The restaurant only does one sitting and is open from 6.30pm so if anyone wants to meet up before 7.30pm for a drink, there will be an area/table set up for us.

    September 23, 2013

  • Claire C

    Thurstan I don't think I'm doing this right so would appreciate some advice. I have emailed the restaurant about suitable dates but haven't heard back from them yet - hence no date set. I am reluctant to allow the rsvp list to be any bigger as I know (from my very limited experience of Meetup) that a lot of people drop out. For my first event as a co-host, I really don't want to have to placate a restaurant manager if people don't turn up. Any suggestions gratefully received! :)

    September 22, 2013

    • James

      Hi Claire. Phone them and make a booking for say 15 people. Tell them that its a social group and you do get some people dropping out so could 12-15 people. When you set your RSVP limit set it at 17 and put on a automatic waiting list. This allows for 2 people not to turn up on the evening. In the rare event that everyone on the likst turns up (Which has never happened to me yet) then we would have to squeeze up a bit lol. Hope that helps. Ohh and I really would ring them rather than email they may never get back to you.
