Just wow, this place is amazing. Whatever you get you won't be disappointed. It's a great place, so make sure you make a reservation, otherwise you might wait for a bit. As far as I know you can bring your own wine/beer if you like but they have a selection of drinks. The only catch is that the service we... More

We love eating here when we visit our family in Glasgow. We love that we can all taste lots of different dishes, the kids are happy as they get their own portion of their favourite dishes and then we go and walk off our lunch at the Kelvin Grove. If you are looking for some Indian Cuisine but you are... More

Love it, love it, love it! Nothing else to say. Just wish the premises were bigger so you didn't have to queue, but it wouldn't stop me visiting.

Had a lovely meal at Mother India's Cafe. Indian tapas a great idea. Food fresh and flavoursome. Will definitely pay a return visit.

We went twice over our stay of one week in Glasgow. We queued for 10 mins the first time, 45 mins the second. It was worth the wait!

Craving an Indian after a few days in Scotland, this was well worth the wait. We visited the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum and this café court our eye on the way there (this is right across the road). we decided to go to the cafe for lunch and it didn't disappoint at all. As vegetarians we had lots of... More

Indian tapas, absolutely perfect! Really tasty food and small enough portions so that you can try several different things. Fast and friendly service. You can't book so the queues can be lengthy at times! That being said, it is worth the wait!

Proper "street food" serving of a wide range of indian food (called tapas-style here). Really busy on a weekend evening yet we got a table for two quickly. Good beer (Brewdog), friendly service, everything we ate was tasty and we finished all of it. Would definitely go again as soon as I'm in Glasgow!

I found this restaurant through a television program on Glasgow. I had to stand in line for about 30 minutes for a table, but it was totally worth it. The owners of the restaurant were there that evening and they were so polite. The food was top notch. The vegetable samosas were some of the best I've ever had. They... More
