Having traveled in India on several occasions having Mother India in Morgantown is like a visit back to India every time we eat there. Although we love Indian food Mother India is in our top 5 of favorite restaurants in Morgantown. The lunch buffet is a good value for the meal. Their special occasion buffet are not to be missed.

This was the worst Indian restaurant I've ever been to. I had the lunch buffet ($10.55 seems like a lot for very limited choice - and all of it dark meat chicken or vegetarian). Everything tasted similar. Service bad. And the food left an awful aftertaste. But I see that the other reviews are better? I was just passing through... More

This restaurant was down the road from the Comfort Inn. My husband and I shared two dishes: his dish with mixed vegetables was very good and my chicken curry was average. I usually don't add salt but reached for the shaker. The garlic naan was delicious. The wait staff seemed bored but did respond when I smiled. The place was... More

This is the best Indian food in the area. We've been visiting this restaurant since it was called Cafe of India & located on Fayette St. Our favorites include tandoori, tikka masala, saag, korma, and chicken pakoras. The peshwari naan is divine. Pair it with your meal or have it for dessert. The food is always hot and served promptly.... More

We 3 had an excellent lunch. I enjoyed the buffet, with both vegetarian and chicken dishes. My son and daughter-in-law ordered vegan dishes, and they also found them delicious. Great find!

My husband and I went there this past weekend. We went to the lunch buffet which was good but quite limited. The servers took care of us but barely spoke to us at all (they'd walk by with a pitcher and fill up our cups then off they would go). The price was good and the atmosphere was nice. The... More

My girlfriend and I ate here on the way back from New York. While still better than eating at a chain establishment near the interstate, the food was merely average, not highly spiced, and a bit overpriced. The place was busy on a Sunday evening, so it's apparently popular among the college students and the locals.

Morgantown has some amazing Indian food. Mother India is definitely a gem! The food here is outstanding served by a staff willing to help you decipher the menu and food item names on the buffet. I also really like how it's close to downtown, yet still has free parking in a private lot. I've never had issues with it, but... More
