Description: Mother India is Norway’s oldest Indian restaurant. Run by the Sharma family the restaurant opened its door in 1993, and has been with the same family in the same location ever since. We are proud of this, but also humble to our guests' expectations of us.We regard ourselves as cultural ambassadors of India through the food we serve. Hence, as our guest you are not a customer but part of our family.We constantly source our ingredients from different suppliers, searching for the very best. That is why we also blend our own spice mixtures. This gives our food a unique flavor, and the recipes are a well kept secret.

Mother India serves perfect food in a cozy resturant. Try the kingfisher beer and butter chicken. The service is very good so is the atmosphere.

I have tried lots of indian restaurants, and I have eaten a lot of homemade Indian food as well. So I am picky when it comes to Indian restaurants. I have been to Mother India a few years ago, and recently went to try it again. They did not disappoint me! In a very busy Marathon weekend in Oslo, it... More

We had such a wonderful dinner here that we returned during our short stay in Oslo. The restaurant is hugely popular so be sure to call ahead for reservations. The staff is very competent and speedy, explaining every dish in detail. We loved tandoori shrimp, chicken Madras, palak paneer and the special layered naan. Spice levels were exactly as promised....

Being a business traveller and fed up with eating alone in hotel restaurants and as a fan of the Indian hot cuisine I made it my mission to test Indian restaurants all across Europe. To say it upfront: At mother India I had probably the hottest Vindaloo in my entire life. But back to the beginning. Coming into the restaurant... More
