Stopped off here for lunch on a rainy day and ended up with some stellar Indian cuisine. Nice atmosphere, views over to Kelvingrove and excellent service. They like to serve the food as a selection of beautifully prepared small dishes, a bit like tapas, but each dish is really quite generous. Great for sharing among friends. And given the quality the prices (£4ish a dish, less for rice and bread) are completely fair – they don’t try and con you like some upmarket tapas restaurants. Between three people you can eat very well for about £20. The achari chicken and nutty rice (one of the specials that day) were memorably delicious, and the peshwari pitta was very tasty and generous.
My favourite Indian restaurant in the west end. The food's always excellent (my fave is the okra with tomatoes!) and reasonably priced. They don't take bookings so be prepared to queue out of the door on a weekend night!
Again, sad to say that this place has gone from our favourite Indian restaurant in Glasgow to the worst. I wouldn't mind the Tapas idea so much if th eprices were reflected in the tiny portions but the prices have stayed the same and the dishes have shrunk. The rice and the naan bread would barely have fed a sparrow. Maybe I am mean and out of touch with British pricing, living in Japan most of the time, but it seems a bit much to pay two quid for a tiny bowl of rice when a normal carry out portion is so vast and cheap. I admit the flavours were good but the portions were ridiculous. I loved their naan bread before which looked like a giant's slipper.
Place looked great from outside but its small inside. Im a big guy and i found it hard to move.
I was there on a business meeting but i dont think i could bring my wife and daughter here because of the space limitations.
The garlic pitta bread was out of this world as was the lamb karahi. The chicken saag looked amazing but after a couple of bites me and my business associate were feeling a little sick and couldn’t look at again. Chicken Acahaari was good but overpowered by the pickle.
Overall good wee restaurant and would go again soon.
Simply the finest Indian restaurant in Glasgow. The dishes are served tapas style which means you get to try loads of interesting flavours in one sitting. The only negative is that you can’t book a table however I’ve never waited longer than 20 minutes to be seated and there’s always their take away service if you’re desperate!
I love this place! It’s become a staple for work nights out with my team.
Food is fantastic, as everyone else has said it’s little dinky tapas style dishes - which is great if there’s a few of you and you all order different things, then everyone can have a taste of everything!
It can be very busy and as far as I know, they don’t take bookings throughout the year - although the run up to Christmas is I think and exception to this.
So yeah, you might have to wait around outside or at the door for a bit, but the view across the road of the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Galleries (lit up at night like some scary building from an old horror movie) makes it worthwhile. As does the food!
Indian cuisine with a twist, this cafe/restaurant is located close to Glasgow West End.
Mother India’s serves it dishes tapas style, which means instad of ordering one big curry, you order a few smaller ones. The quality of the food was excellent and the price was reasonable. By ordering numerous smaller dishes, its a little easier to be more adventurous with your order. I ended up trying a few things I normally wouldn’t have ordered for fear of not liking them!
My only negative comment about Mother India’s is that it is fairly small inside, which can mean a bit of a wait for a table and a slightly cramped dining experience
Sister venue of the Mother India, the cafe focuses more on tapas style Indian cuisine, maybe not an authentic format for Indian food but it works oh so well.
The small dishes from a huge selection on the menu are all to a high standard and the biggest problem we have eating here is getting through all the dishes we are tempted into ordering.
I have only ever had a takeaway from here but it was excellent. It was a spicy potato dish and a curry, which my brother bought for me. He is a regular at this place and loves it. He is going to take me there to sit in soon. It is in a convenient sopt next to the museums and you could easily make it a part of your day out.
Traditional Indian food within easy walking distance of Transport Museum & Kelvingrove…...excellent quality if slightly pricey lunch menu with small tapas type dishes, great for vegetarians, though bookings sometimes required.
