I have eaten in the Mother India restaurant in Edinburgh, and insisted we visit Mother India Cafe in Glasgow, when I was visiting family. The food was absolutely beautiful. Top quality Indian food. A must visit.

As an 11 year expat in Glasgow it can be tricky to find restaurants can can impress your guests from world hubs, in this case New York City. Although we did not have reservations our group of 3 were welcomed and the staff went out of our way to accommodate one in our group who is in a wheelchair. The... More

I often only do reviews when something wow's me and this was indeed fantastic! We ordered 4 dishes with garlic naan and raita. Perfect. Not only very tasty but service was quick, extremely polite and love the fact the dishes are different from the main restaurant. Myself and my husband love dining at Mother India the restaurant but that's more... More

We love this cafe which sells Indian tapas which are top class. For a couple thiink of sharing 4 to start. The land dishes are particularly good as are okra dishes. The staff are friendly and efficient. We have been going for years and the quality never wavers.

I am not a huge fan of Indian food but I love this place! It's always busy so you have to queue sometimes (usually only at weekends). They serve Indian style tapas so you can get a few smaller dishes to try different things. Their peshwari naan is amazing!

Midweek lunchtime visit, so no queue outside. Pleasant staff, good service, and great food. Much nicer having a selection of small dishes to try than one large portion. Everything was delicious, and we did not feel at all rushed. Hope to be back soon.

This is our favourite Indian restaurant and always visit when we are in Glasgow as the food and ambience never disappoint. We had a fantastic meal which was really reasonable considering the quality of the food. It was really busy but has a great atmosphere and we didn't feel rushed despite people waiting for tables. We'll be back!
