The location was convenient in downtown Lewiston. The decor was really nice. The service was very good. The food was also very good, and there was plenty of it! Anyone seeking Indian Cuisine and in the Lewiston/Auburn area should eat here!

Ok, so I have been back twice since my previous review. I owe Mother India another updated review. I am impressed at this point. I ordered the punjabi (coconut) naan both times since my first visit and am in love with it -- they will even take out the nuts and cilantro. As usual the chicken tikka masala is fantastic... More

I was surprised by this little gem on Lisbon St. It's difficult to get even decent ethnic food of any kind around here, but Mother India pulls through. Their lunch buffet is kept fresh and tastes wonderful. The restaurant's atmosphere is cozy, nicely appointed, not garish as some places tend to do for American audiences. The staff and owners are...

We had lunch here today, and this place is amazing. It was simply one of the best meals I have eaten in a very long time. The hostess/owner was so pleasant, and she told us the vegetables were fresh and locally grown. I had a vegetarian dish and my dining companion had a chicken one. Both were amazing. The garlic...

I was super excited to hear that this place existed because I had instantly loved curry dishes I have had in the UK. Mother India has decent tikka masala, it looks and tastes how it should. That was not the problem though. The problem was the naan bread; we ordered the keema naan. Keema is a meat filled naan. This... More

This is one of the very best Indian restaurants I have ever eaten at in Maine. The dishes are flavorful, the ingredients are very fresh, and the chef knows what he's doing with the spices. They offer several vegetarian / Vegan choices which is a bonus. The owners are very friendly and attentive. I prefer this indian restaurant above any... More

Went to dinner here with my wife and son. My wife had a chicken dish that was good, but my son and I had different lamb dishes. He had the lamb curry and I had the lamb madras. Both were exceptional. The lamb was super tender and delicious. We will definitely return.

My husband and I regularly order from this place, and have, for the past year and a half. The food is flavorful and we have never had a problem with them. The staff who work there go out of their way to say hello to you and will stop and have a conversation with you. I love having an Indian... More
