Great Indian Food

We had a great meal at this cosy but buzzing little Indian restaurant. The food was excellent. Portions were generous but it was the quality of the cooking that made it. The rice was light and the sauces left none of that aftertaste that I sometimes get with spicy food. The staff were friendly... read more

My husband and I traveled to Glasgow recently for his business trip. One night, on my own for dinner, I asked several locals what Indian restaurant they liked best. Multiple people recommended Mother India, or Mother India Cafe (apparently a quicker, cheaper cafe style). I opted for the original dine-in restaurant, and although the food and people were lovely, it... More

This is definitely the best place to have authentic indian food in Glasgow. There are at least 3 Mother India on the same street so make sure you note down the address and make a reservation before visiting the place otherwise the waiting period could be long.

Great place, located opposite kelvingrove gallery, resonably priced and good ambience. The indian music played inside is very soothing and the service friendly. Food was amazing, we tried chicken tikka masala, dal makhani, tandoori naan, poppadums and onion rings. Absolutely no complaints. Will visit again. Be ready to wait outside in weekends as they dont have a big waiting area... More

We all agreed that it was some of the best food we had all had for a while and hands down the best Indian meal in a long time ! Outstanding food. The seabass was to die for and the staff couldn't have been more... More

I love this wee place, I ate indian food all the time but had no idea it could be this good. Utterly superb am literally speechless. I had the Chicken Chasni and lamb Karahi (shared with the wife). But its all good, so nicely positioned over the Art Gallery and Musium.

In the last 5 weeks, I've had Indian food on two continents, 3 countries, and 5 cities. This was hands down, the best! Two business associates were with me and everyone agreed that this was the best food we had eaten in quite some time. Everything was very fresh, brought out in unique and rustic presentation. The wait staff was... More

A regular visitor here. Always a top reccommendation to visitors from outside of Glasgow. Fish Pakora and fish curries are delish! Must book- always opt for upstairs!
