Good value, good atmosphere and the food is always first class. Waiters always helpful and honest regarding spiciness of the food :-) You´ll get what you order, you can have some really spicy stuff if you like.

Food in Norway is not one of their strengths but Mother India is amazing! An absolute must if you want great food while in Kristiansand.

This was a very nice place with excellent Indian atmosphere. Service is good and the food is tasty. The menu is VERY pricey though. It`s from 249NOK and up. That`s really the only negative thing here. Recommended!

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 :-)
