Great place to share food

With lots of small dishes you can order a few to try more things. It a great place to go to enjoy sharing food.

Friendly welcome, excellent service and delicious food. I was visiting Scotland with my granddaughter and we were lucky enough to be taken to this restaurant. Wish I lived there so I could go on a regular basis. Especially enjoyed the lamb dishes.

This restaurant will surprise a few. If you are used to run of the mill Indian food, then you may be in for a shock. This is what Indian food should taste like, it's as close as you will get to our home cooked meals. I might even say some dishes are better than my mums! 3 simple dishes to... More

Never have I had better curry. Veg curry of the day had fresh veggies, including kale? or chard? Anyway - it was fresh and tasty. I had the daily curry with plain chapati and an order of samosas, which was more than enough food for one person. I enjoyed every second. Service was outstanding. Atmosphere was calm, not quiet.

Once you have tried mother India's cafe your generic Indian takeaway will never be the same again! This restaurant is definitely something different: the food is exceptional and the staff will go out of their way to help. Will definitely be back.

I lived in Glasgow for many years and Mother India's Cafe is my favourite restaurant there. I really like the tapas style with smaller portions so you can try more things. I never minded queuing and was never disappointed. The food was always superb. Now I live abroad but I can cook recipes from their cookbook which brings back happy... More
