Excellent Indian taoas

We popped in for a little afternoon snack so we only ordered a couple of plates (black daal and meat dosa) both were delicious and the restaurant had a buzzing vibe. I'd love to go back for a proper feast

Never had Indian tapas so this was a culinary adventure for our party of four. Mother India's cafe is a busy place and they don't take bookings so we went with apprehension and fear of finding ourselves in a fast food outlet. Not at all!!! We had a good table and were allocated it for the evening. Then the food... More

Every time, this place is great. So good for larger groups (well, 6-8 of us the last 2 times), as you can share so many different things. So good.

Busy atmosphere, but really cosy. More laid-back menu from it's original version, which still exists--Mother India. Food is reasonably priced and incredibly yummy. Right across from the Kelvingrove Museum and park.

We have been a few times to the Cafe India cafe, and also the main restaurant, we love it. The cafe is quite small and always busy, food is delicious and reasonably priced. We will definitely be back.

The only restaurant that I consistently go to. It's so popular that you often have to wait half an hour queueing outside the door just waiting for a seat which is annoying when you're hungry but it's worth it. The restaurant offers cheap, tapas-style meals which are always actually really filling. Also there are some great vegetarian options

I've eaten here more often than I can remember and the food is consistently delicious with prompt service and a happy atmosphere. I occasionally order or eat elsewhere and always immediately regret not going to MIC. Food prepared and cooked with love and quality ingredients - fresh, tasty and just the right portion sizes to try various different dishes. The... More

Another great meal in the cafe only this time with a group of 22 people (football team from Holland) 21 Dutch and me from Glasgow, more than 1/2 the group hadn't tried Indian cuisine but everyone was blown away with the quality and taste of every dish served and I think they tried everything on the menu. Great service kept... More
