You won't find that happening in 'Mother India' in Glasgow. The kitchen will make bespoke curry for you and they have never failed to... read more

Really nice takeaway. Good menu - detailed and varied. Good taste, mega west coast portions. Its not just Tandoori chicken - they have a broad Tikka menu. Taste was excellent. It may be better to sit in.

Expected more with the reputation of this establishment. Accompaniments and starters were actually good. The main course was more of a let down, cold rice, very ordinary chicken tika.......and weak sauce, (I am comparing this with our local take away as a standard) The service however was excellent and there was a decent atmosphere with very good company. The ordinary... More
