“Consistently good after visiting for over 9 years”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

What can I say...

This is a small restaurant that does do reservations (but does take out for collection) that has consistently provided good service and very good food over 15+ visits.

Small plates (tapas style) or large plates if you want it. Recommendation for two people is to order 5 tapas portion dishes...if you are still hungry then order some more!

Friendly staff, quick service, great informal cafe atmosphere.

Not the place for a romantic meal, it's for families and friends.

Great little restaurant.

“Great place to eat even for budget travelling”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Found this place accidentally as a shelter from rain and it was a pleasant discovery of a day, Located in front of Kelvingrove Art Gallery and therefore suggest a nice window view. Staff is really friendly and helpful with additional requests. As for cuisine - it's really really good and prices are rather low for restaurants in central areas of Glasgow. Well worth the visit!

“Great for a quick Indian fix”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 via mobile

Serving tapas sized servings of both typical Indian favourites and house specials, these freshly made tasters hit the spot. 3 mains between two is more than enough, and would recommend both the butter chicken, and the melt in your mouth Lamb karahi...starters are around £4 ish, mains around £6. Staff are friendly but beware it's busy all the time and you can't book, so could imagine weekends could result in a lengthy wait, but your patience will be rewarded by a great meal.

“Simply the Best!”
Reviewed May 11, 2013

This restaurant never disappoints: Quality ingredients, great curries, good atmosphere. The menu is minimalist but the kitchen will cook individual choices not on on the main menu. Best Vegetable Pakora around!

“An outstanding experience”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Heard many great things about the food at Mother India so decided it was time to give it a go.

My wife and I enjoy our food and like a nice vibrant atmosphere. This place did not disappoint.

Fresh food cooked with excellent sauces and spices and a 1st class service. We were super impressed. Everyone of the staff were fantastic.

On a side note, I looked at the negative reviews and I'm embarrassed for the people who left them. The camera one was a classic. Sad
