We love Mother India and Mother India's Cafe. They just do curries so damn well. Service is always acceptable and they don't keep you waiting long. Highly recommend their butter chicken.

Realised I haven't written a review of this place in ages so here goes. It's quite simply my favourite curry house. Ever. Never a bad meal. Fantastic Mango Lassi. Fantastic coriander chutney. Fast and efficient service. Wish I lived nearer.

Indian food in tapas style. It's a consistently excellent experience. No booking - just turn up and queue. The wait is rarely long and it's worth it (but they do a carry out service if you prefer). Vegetarian options of course. Friendly service too.

Had lunch on a Friday and had to queue for a table but as always well worth the short wait. Service is very efficient and staff are all very polite and friendly even though they are always very busy. Food arrives as its cooked and is always very tasty. The prawns were great and the freshly baked Peshwari naan is... More

A group of six of us called for a quick lunch as we had not experienced Indian Tapas before. We all ordered different dishes which were all very tasty. The food comes in small dishes but we all found that one dish with rice or nan was sufficient. The service was fast and friendly and we all agreed it was... More

Four of us went after work to Mother India's - one a very regular customer. Whilst you have to wait for a table - there are no reservations - glimpses and smells of the food wafting our way made us really hungry. The idea is to have about 2/3 plates per person. We ordered 12 amongst 4 and got the... More

We were in the area and spotted the cafe. We had previously seen reviews for here & so decided to give it a go for a quick lunch. Tapas style Indian cuisine at its best. Numerous options plus daily specials meant difficult to choose. I am a carnivore but the aloo Gobi with green beans was the best vegetable dish... More
