Ordered a takeaway. I realize that in India meat is scarce in a dish however I would have expected more value for money from this supposed highly acclaimed restaurant. All of the dishes had 5-6 pieces of meat and the takeaway was mainly sauce! Prawns were watery. Overall flavors of the sauces not bad however I think they need to concentrate less on their shows and more on their food! Very bad value for an $80 + takeaway.

Went there for the first time on a Saturday night with friends. The service was excellent, the food was more than 'just another Indian restaurant', and the background live entertainment wasn't intrusive. Don't take my word for it..... just go there and be adventurous with your choice of dishes. Don't expect blistering hot curries that destroy your taste buds, but expect sublime mixtures of spices and herbs that allow you to taste the food, not what its cooked with. Cant wait to go back!

This restaurant used to have a great atmosphere and wonderful Indian cuisine, however since changing management has lacked in service, meal quality and atmosphere and is not worth the drive way out to middle Dural. We decided to give them another go, but found no change had been made to uplift the dreary atmosphere, we will not be visiting again.

Mother India is an excellent restaurant in rural Dural; with the usual Indian staple dishes, along with a few unusual dishes on the menu.

We started off with a huge helping of Palak Patta Chaat - which is one of the best we're had. And followed it up with the Akhrot Gosht (lamb with walnut) and the Prawn Malabar - both were excellent. The naans were crisp and tasty. The restaurant also serves a complementary tomato soup as a starter (in a shot-glass), which is a very nice touch.

They have live music on weekends as well.

Tucked away in Middle Dural in the Sydney Hills, this restaurant is well known to locals. but perhaps more of a well kept secret from others.

This was the first time we'd visited the restaurant under its new management and we weren't sure what to expect.

As we were dining with friends, we chose one of the banquets and were not disappointed.

The food was simply amazing, and so plentiful. If you visit you must try their Chicken 65. We ordered this mainly out of curiosity, we couldn't believe they had cooked it using 65 different herbs and spices, but it was fantastic. The flavour was quite complex (and I wouldn't even try to identify the 65 different spices).

We would definitely recommend visiting Mother India, and we'll be going back again ourselves. Their banquets are excellent and very good value for money. The staff were attentive and the service was very good.

Thanks to Mother India for a great night out.
