Great food in great surroundings; a bit expensive though

Undoubtedly one of the best restaurant in Kristiansand. Friendly staff, great food but at prices that, in my opinion, are slightly too high. Definitely worth a visit though :)

Coming down the stairs this Saturday, we think "my o my". This que will take a while to get seats, however, there is a guy who is saying 10-15 minutes and everybody without reservation will get a table. We are impressed: 10 minutes and we have a table with a smiling waiter asking for a drinks order. The Restaurant is... More

I am an vegetarian and I have had many meals and take aways from Mother India. The food is indeed very authentic and tasteful. When I have visitors from India, we relish the dishes and unique atmosphere. They all term it as an extraordinary experience. High quality and quantity of meals yield great value for money. My favorites are Tandoori... More

Rather expensive Indian, even by Norwegian standards. Were very accommodating when we showed up without a reservation, but we would probably be better off going somewhere else instead of being crammed together right next to the rest rooms. Busy night made for slow service. Food was ok but forgettable.

Centrally placed, cool venue, awesome food and brilliant service (the straff is fluent in English, so no worries there if you don't speak Norwegian). The Mother India restaurant is one of the best in Kristiansand, and I fully recommend it.

The Mother India restaurant in Markens Gate is the best Indian restaurant I've been to in Norway. The restaurant is located in an intimate cellar, and instantly gives an indian vibe. The service from the waiters is impeccable - friendly, knowledgable and quick. The food is very tasteful, and the portions are so big that you don't need to worry... More

Stepping down into the beautifully decorated dining room you get a feeling of entering a different world. Still the friendly service and professional attitude to every single detail makes you feel at home and safe in the hands of the staff. We chose this place for a conference dinner, and really felt we got value for our money.
