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.

We were celebrating great exam results for our young friend from another country - with his sieblings and mother - the two of us hosting the party have become their "Norwegian family". The food was very good, the service likewise - and they even gave the mother and son free sweets, thus celebrating him in their own way!!!! A nice treat!

We will definitely come back. No wonder Mother India have lasted all these years :-)

The food and service at the restaurant are outstanding - and the staff genuinely seem to care about providing an excellent dining experience. I would absolutely come back next time I visit Oslo.

Pros:
1) Excellent service - staff were attentive and provided excellent experience (i.e., took time to explain dishes, made effort to connect with guests)
2) Amazing Indian food - no oil floating on top of dishes, tender meat (not tiny diced pieces of lamb and chicken like I've had elsewhere)

Cons:
None!

Mother India has been without a doubt,the best Indian restaurant in Oslo, and probably the whole country. I have come to dine here many times over the years, and this place only keeps on getting better and better! It has been newly renovated, by clearing out the space and making it a little more modern and sophisticated but keeping it's soul intact. This small place is romantic and cozy, yet relaxed enough to have a casual dinner with friends or family. The food is delicious and almost whatever you choose you will not be disappointed! This restaurant will always be in my all time favorite places to go to when in Oslo!

The food itself was very good but since I am not so experienced with indian food but I guess someone who loves this type of cuisine would top-rate it. The service was excellent, they were really friendly. On the downside: a bit large portions, and they could have had more than one restroom.. But all in all a good 4-star worthy experience.
