A big choice of tapas style meals, which you can mix and match (they recommend 3-4 for a couple, which is about right) meaning that you can try all sorts. Friendly quick service. Just over the road from the Kelvingrove Museum, so you can do some culture and have a really good meal!

Mother India cafe was recommended to us for our recent weekend break in Glasgow. It certainly did not disappoint. As you cannot book in advance, We were told to expect a wee wait, which indeed we had, 25mins was fine, considering it was a busy Saturday evening. The menu is extensive with lots of variety and some dishes new to... More

We love this place - go there, you cannot book, it is busy and the food is great - enjoy. An original tapas experience.

We had heard some good things about this restaurant and decided to check it out as we both consider ourselves to know good Indian food when we taste it. Here is our mini review of Mother India's Cafe, Glasgow: PROS: + affordable food + good pakora + affordable drinks + friendly atmosphere CONS: - They microwave their rice!! We heard... More

Asif A, General Manager at Mother India's Cafe, responded to this review

We have read your comments and would respond as follows: Regarding the microwave "ding" this is the safest way to heat the rice safely to the correct temperature. As for your comments stating Mother India Restaurants not giving tips to their staff. This is completely untrue and offensive considering you posted these comments without anything to support your accusations. We... More

The greatest hits of Mother India's various menus, with prices that make it difficult to break £20 a head. Absolutely fantastic food, friendly service and spices and flavours used with a cunning complexity. My only comment would be that the food is all very rich - even the dahl is buttery and creamy - and it would be good to... More

It seems I am going against the grain here...again! Another of the 'must do' eateries in all the usual 'must do' listings...but one that yet again, proved that - the proof of the pudding is in the eating! Well, sure, and this is how it was to me and my party. But, just to add a little caveat that it... More

We were on our way to Still Game at The Hydro. We needed to go somewhere close enough and thought we'd try here. Id contacted Asif at the office, who couldnt have been more help, to confirm how busy it might be as its always queued round the corner when we pass. We were met with a smile, shown to... More

tried the tapas style menus and was absolutely blown away with the whole experience - from entering the cafe we were seated promptly, watered and fed in quick time, with the food simply outstanding. I rounded off my meal with a throw back to my early years with a single nougat - a west of Scotland classic which I can... More

I love this restaurant. I have been countless times. Their south India chicken is outstanding. Their butter chicken is so good. Friendly service, always start with poppadoms. Food arrives quickly. Always about 5 dishes per visit between 2! Good feast.

I love this place. Chilli Chicken dosa, cod cooked with indian spices, garlic mushroom pakora and lemon and cashew nut rice, AMAZING!!! There is a huge selection to choose from and i could have ate a whole lot more than i did. The portions are a perfect size and everything is so tasty! Well worth the visit!
