Had good Indian food along with a nice Masala chai!

It was new years eve and they just served a fixed menu but the food was great! Masala chai added made it more delightful! Just felt the price was a bit on the higher side!

After a visit at the nearby collosseum we had a very tasty lunch at Mother India. Vegetarian appetizers, Tandoori Chicken, Madras Lamb and Prawns Korma style with safran rice. Delicious and nice service.

Service very friendly. We were the only customers. Food was ok and a welcome break from so much pizza and pasta. I think this place is significantly over priced- a meal for 2 ended up costing 58 euro - 2 starters, 2 mains, 1 naan. 1 rice. 1 x bottle of water and 2 cokes. Starters were good and tasty... More

The Chicken Bryani, Garlic and plain Naan, keema Naan were great. But the Mutton Bryani too salty for my level of taste. It was empty when we came. After that another table of 3 was occupied. Service was good and pleasant too.

Reserve the seat in advance so that you don't need to wait (that's the best part specially in winter). The food is very good and value for money and hospitality is much better and quick. Worth the visit.

A late lunch/early dinner so the restaurant was very quiet. We thought that the food was excellent and good value for money. We would go back if we're in Rome again and happy to recommend. Certainly a welcome change to pasta dishes.

I'm sorry, but I can't fathom the many excellent reviews here. It wasn't horrible, but by no means was it excellent Indian food. Portions were miniscule. The lamb consisted of two tiny chunks, with the old "lamb-chunk sized onion disguised as additional protein" trick. Sauces were tasty, but not fantastic. Service was unremarkable, neither good nor bad.
