Mother India serves the best Palak Paneer with different levels of spicy. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Indian food and Kingfisher. The restaurant is somewhat small so you might have to book a table in advance if you're a big group.

We live near by and have been coming on-and-off since they opened in 1993. This is still my favorite Indian in Oslo.

Being from the UK we are a bit more accustomed to Indian food than some countries, and therefore I feel I'm well qualified to say this restaurant is well worth a visit. Great service

I've been to many Indian restaurant in Oslo, and this one is definitively one of the best in terms of service, atmosphere and food quality. The place is very quiet and very well decorated, the waiters are very polite, and the food is excellent. It is also a very romantic place for couples.

Dropped in for dinner during business trip to Oslo. Was told there were no tables for one person. Meanwhile, the restaurant gladly let in parties of two people.

Description
Mother India is Norway’s oldest Indian restaurant. Run by the Sharma family the restaurant opened its door in 1993, and has been with the same family in the same location ever since. We are proud of this, but also humble to our guests' expectations of us.We regard ourselves as cultural ambassadors of India through the food we serve. Hence, as our guest you are not a customer but part of our family.We constantly source our ingredients from different suppliers, searching for the very best. That is why we also blend our own spice mixtures. This gives our food a unique flavor, and the recipes are a well kept secret.
