Mother India in Kristiansand is one of the first "authentic" Indian restaurants in Norway, and the resturanteur has become somewhat famous for her flavours. Nice location in the middle of the city, very cosy atmosphere inside. The food was delicious and portions were large, even though it is pretty costly... All in all however, we had a great time!

Authentic Indian food in the middle of the city. The restaurant has an excellent atmosphere with imported Indian decorations, it actually feels a little bit like being in India for a an hour or two. I ordered Angari Chicken which was very tasty and not too spicy. If like spicy food you can order madras and vindaloo strenght. The restaurant... More

I visited Mother India restaurant at Markens gate 6 yesterday with a couple of university buddies for an evening meal. From the moment we stepped into the restaurant, it felt like i was in India, with the speakers playing Indian music. The best part of the meal was the garlic tanduri, with Indian tea to go with. I also loved... More

have been here twice with colleagues, the service was a little slow, the mixed starter was great, the curry was Ok, if you like indian food there is not a lot of choice in Kristiansand. where I live I am spoilt for choice and the standards high and prices low so I have to rate it average.

Coming from the UK, I have experienced both the good, the bad and the ugly in the indian restaurant world. Finding myself now living in Norway, I was eager to try Mother India. My first impressions were a great atmosphere in the cellar, with an exciting and fun decor. The food was mediocre and expected a lot more. Even the... More

Food is excellent, a good menu and the staff is friendly. Located in a basement, but easy to find the entrance, look for the sign at the pedestrian path. Prices on food are average, but plenty of food. Recommend reservation.
