Great Food and Service

I thoroughly enjoy every meal I eat here. My girlfriend and I have been here at least four times. We both really enjoy the food and the naan. The waiter knows us. We don't need to ask for extra spice or salt; he knows how spicy we like our food and how salty a salty lassi should be. Good... read more

My family and I eat at this restaurant once a week. The service is always excellent and the food delicious. We also appreciate that they have family friendly hours. My young children are in bed at 8 pm and it's nice to find a restaurant that accommodates and early dinner.

This is a great place to get some authentic Indian food. I've tried a bunch of Indian places in Rome and have found this one to be my favorite. Their curries are great, and the waiter we always have knows that I love them extra spicy! He's very sweet! They also speak Hindi to me sometimes, which makes me feel... More

We moved to Rome from Canada. We are not strangers to Indian food and have had out share of great Indian food at home. We have been back to Mother India twice and plan to keep going back. The service is top notch- the servers and staff are great and have been incredibly friendly on each of our visits. The... More

The food is definitely good but I would rate it above average (3.5) not excellent. If you don't have other Indian options, worth a try. Huzayf

As I begin I wish to say we love Indian food and try to have it often in our own home and when out. This food was just very average. The service was good and the staff were very friendly but the food could have been better. The Naan was not cooked enough. We asked for some spice with the... More

Food was good but definitely not the best Indian we had in Rome. The chana dal was very good while the malai kofta was just about average. Staff was helpful and friendly. Portion of the dishes were decent as well.

Neighborhood Profile
Monti
Monti is Rome’s rebel yell. This neighborhood just west of Termini train station mixes grit with fun as it continues to fight for its reputation as a magnet for the artsy, alternative, and hipster. Every season, quirky boutiques and food spots sprout up on its cobblestone streets. The neighborhood supports unique and homegrown businesses that cater to its longtime residents as well as hipsters on the hunt. Hang out at Piazza della Madonna dei Monti anytime after lunch and you'll always find something going on.
