We are regulars to Mother India and there are very good reasons why. Very friendly and welcoming staff, a wide variety of great dishes to choose from (with an excellent vegetarian menu) and a cosy underground atmosphere. The portions are generous so ensure you're very hungry before you arrive :-)

Mother India in Kristiansand is probably the best indian restaurant there is. I have been around tasting the Indian cuisine for years and I always return to Sarita and Raj i Kristiansand. So why do I always return? I guess it has to do with the atmosphere, spices , the flavors and not to forget their kindness and warmth. There... More

For local standards, Mother India is a nice restaurant in Kristiansand, and each time I was there (twice last year, and again tonight) it was packed. It has a nice atmosphere, and the service is very friendly and rather effective. With regard to food, it is an OK restaurant, compared to the largely mainland European Indian restaurants I know, but... More

Great selection of very tasty food and the restaurant is very cozy. Good value compared to other restaurants in Kristiansand. The staff is great and very service minded. However, sometimes when the restaurant is very packed it can be difficult to get the waiters' attention. If you are 5-7 people for a special occasion or similar, I recommend to book... More

If you like Indian food, you are in for a treat. Reasonable priced. Can be quite crowded at night, so be a bit early.

We were a couple of friends who wanted to try something new. The impression of the interior and the atmosphere of the place was very well conducted, we felt like we were in a totally different place (perhaps even another country). The food was delightful and so was the free starters/appetizers that we got in the start. Great service, the... More
