Have just visited for the first time and was very happy with the standard of food and service. Have been missing good Indian cuisine since leaving the UK where you are spoilt for choice. We will be sure to visit again as soon as possible...More

Familyowned and -driven. Cosy and small. Decorated the way you expect it to, and the food delivers as well. Fresh and delicious with that little extra spike that you want from your Indian food. One of the best places for Indian food in Oslo

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.

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.
