Great, great, great!

Went there with my fiancée last year and were absolutely fascinated about it! Food was really good and considering how many Indian restuarants across the city, that's something to say!

Went to Mother India with my family and a friend. All in all, there were six of us. The decor on the upper level is much nicer than the one on the ground floor. The menus are a bit confusing. We ordered a few appetizers, some pappadams and they were served quickly and hot. The pappadams were soaked with oil... More

Mother India - Restaurant (at 28 Westminster Road) as opposed to the Mother India Cafe (at 1355 Argyle Street). Excellent Indian Food. Excellent service.

liked the "tapas" style menu idea,lots of dishes to choose from we had 3 lovely tasters and chapatis, all dishes were very tasty and filling, the only slight letdown was that the chapatis were not the best, maybe i should have chose a nan as they looked great,all the waiting staff were very pleasant, would definately go back.

Great food and excellent location, just by the Kelvingrove museum. We ordered one plate each to share and a naan bread - which was huge!

I was introduced to Mother India's Dining In about 1.5 years ago by a colleague, and I've been going at least once every two weeks since. The concept is ideal - pick up the restaurant quality food at some point during the day, then spend 5 mins heating it up in the evening before eating a restaurant quality meal for... More

I have been coming to Mother India Dining In for a couple of years or more. It has been my favourite indian restaurant of all time...... but tonight was such a disappointment! We rarely vary our choices on the menu: lamb curry; green herb chicken and monkfish with puy lentils. Neither the quality nor the recipe has varied in all... More

Since moving to glasgow mother india has established itself as our favourite Indian restaurant -(argyle street) they have a £9.50 meal for two which is exceptional. If you don't have time to queue for a table - have a takeaway - delicious. Willma
