Can be spicy!

Been here several times and the food is always fresh and tasty. Medium here can be a bit spicy though so be sure to ask the waiters on recommendations.

I've been there many times and I've always been served delicious food. I also appreciate their complimentary poppadom served after ordering food and their anis seeds that are served with the bill. Friendly boss and waiters/waitresses as well. Really nice atmosphere, and the place feels very warm and cozy. Prices are normal for Norwegian standards. All in all, I highly... More

My colleagues and I went here for dinner based on Trip Advisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. Setting aside the price of dining in Norway, the prices here are in line with other restaurants in Fredrikstad, and the quantity and quality of food was superb. Service was also top notch with our server being attentive and unobtrusive. Dining in... More

I have been to Fredrikstad 3-4 times and everytime only Mother India is my option for dinner. Apart from the authentic taste, the thing i would like to mention is the quality and freshness of food. Will go to this place everytime i am in Fresrikstad. Ambience is good as well.

This restuarant was appalling and could be the worst meal I have ever had. The dipping sauces for the starters were HP sauce and tomato ketchup, mind blowing!! I order a chicken curry main and the chicken had clearly not been cooked in the sauce. It appeared that the chicken had been cooked separately and then stripped. It was like... More
