Lovely meal food was exceptionally delicious, will definitely be back
We live in Aberdeen and it was our first visit. Probably the very best Indian food we have had. Tasting a variety of slightly smaller dishes was good fun.
We had a lovely meal in a relaxing atmosphere, with friendly and attentive staff. Thank you.
Great food for sharing.
The only thing that let's it down is that it feels everyone is crammed in.
Great food, great service for fantastic low price.
Best Indian food in the U.K.!
Excellent choice for all dietary requirements in my party. The food arrived quickly and was piping hot. Every dish was thoroughly enjoyed by all. The coffee was also delicious and hot. A great experience.😃
High standard of food and service as usual. Back again in 2 weeks time!
Great food, good service.
Thank you for another lovely meal and for the birthday treats at the end of the meal. Delicious food, friendly efficient service.
Great find. Piping hot delicious food. Attentive waiters. Will definitely return.
Up in Edinburgh on a weekend break and we were recommended Mother India. What a find, amazing food, atmosphere and service. Will definitely go again and recommend to others.
Please bring back your old style aubergine fritters with thin batter.
Lovely fresh Indian food. Honestly the best I have ever tasted in a restaurant. Excellent choice and lovely staff. Highly recommend. We will be back.
Delicious dishes, excellent menu.
Really enjoyed the experience and will be back. Everything was spot on apart from the service which let the overall review down, that said it was very busy and may account for the lack of detail when bringing out the food, they left us guessing when all the dishes would be with us. I felt they could have managed our expectations better. Food taste and selection was top notch and good vale for money.
A longstanding favourite, and the refreshed menu encourages more visits. Always busy, but that means your dishes shouldn't be overcooked. The veg dishes have improved and the smoked aubergine and the broccolli dishes are standouts. Still love the lamb railway curry though.
Great food and friendly service. Tapas offers flexibility but there are also interesting special dishes which are presented very well.
Absolutely fab evening at Mother India. Food was first class and atmosphere and service were too. Will definitely be back!
The food is incredible. Best Indian in Edinburgh, probably Scotland
