Excellent Indian food

Very good Indian lunch! Wide choices and very customized food done to check your spicy pallets. It was very conveniently located right next to Clarion Hotel Morgan so we could just walk to the restaurant.

I've eaten there about once a month for the past 2 years and have noticed a decrease in quality recently. There are fewer dishes, and the spicing is more bland. They used to have a green chutney, but no more. The past several visits I've only seen legume dishes - chick peas and lentils - and no paneer. Price is... More

We went there with a large group of friends, the waitress (who's the owner) was very friendly and very funny, I ordered a plate which had different things in it, like small samples of different things! It was great and delicious! I definitely recommend the place !

I went here for dinner at about 730 on a Wednesday night and there were maybe 3 tables of diners. I was shown to my booth and, after about 15 minutes, a waitress came and somewhat begrudgingly took my order. She did not once come to ask if I needed anything. While I could maybe understand this had it been... More

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!
