The only negative thing I'd ever have to say about Mother India is that I often end up eating about twice as much as I intended because everything is so delicious. Small portions mean you can order around 2 dishes per person and try a huge variety if you're in a group.

I have visited Mother India Cafe monthly since I first moved to Glasgow. Whether it is for sit in or take away I can genuinely say I have never had a bad meal. The staff and management know what they are doing. Worth a visit. The queue moves fast and the feast that awaits inside is worth every minute.

Went with a group of visitors from USA, Trinidad and London...all vegetarian ..they were very impressed with the total experience. We were lucky not to have to queue as the previous visit, and we're seated very quickly. Drinks order was taken after we were settled, and then our orders for food done efficiently. While the group was admiring the surroundings... More

If you like Indian cuisine then you will find a very good selection of light tapas style dishes ideal for lunchtime. My friend and I loved the way we could mix and match and try things that we were not sure about - but enjoyed everything. Great staff too. Just across the road from the wonderful Kelvingrove museum.

This place is definitely worth a visit. The staff are very friendly, and the food is excellent!! The Tapas dishes gives you a chance to sample a few different items on the menu, and the portions are a decent size! Good value for money. Will definitely visit again.

Best Indian Cuisine in Glasgow. Really fast service, great atmosphere (this can make or break an experience, and this place definitely makes it!) Very attentive waiter, never too far away to help up out with small things about the menu. Definitely be back soon! Thank you!

Doesn't take reservations, turn up and join the line. This is a well known institution with the locals and you can expect to wait on most evenings. The food however is well worth it.
