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.

I love this place and we have been going here for years. But what I like to point out is that the kids menu is great. For once kids are presented with a delightful plate of great colours and taste. Chicken wings with yellow rice and vegetables in different colours cut in beautiful shapes. Different sauces to dip also. Just... More

I've been at Mother India with friends, family and my boyfriend. It's perfect for all occations, but tends to be quite a lot of people there. This just speaks for the reastaurant itself, the food is so good, and the people working there are supernice. The prices are quite high, but if you buy one dish to split for two... More

After visiting Dyreparken for the whole day, both stomach and mind were longing after a nice Indian meal. After hearing that Mother India is known as The best Indian Restaurant in Norway, expectations were high. Our family ordered Chicken Tikka Masala, Mango Chicken and Panir Korma. O'boy what a fantastic culinary experience we had. The aroma and spice balance of... More

It was a farewell meal with my Noreigian friend and family before we leave Norway to Amsterdam. Step into the entrance and walk down the stair with portraits of beautiful women, next you enter into India. Everything - atmosphere, music, decorations and the smell of spices. Best part was that you get to choose the level of spiciness with your... More
