Very tasty food, good value, a bit noisy but good service.
First visit to Mother India and would definitely visit again. As it was a lunchtime visit it was a bit quiet but nevertheless still loved the place.My brother has booked your function room for this Sat, looking forward to the return visit.
First time we have visited Mother India Café. Incredible, authentic Indian food. Very flavourful with a great mix of spice and taste. Favourite dishes were the Garlic Chilli Chicken and the Prawns that came out in silver foil. The Cheese and Coriander naan was also excellent. Great service throughout the evening and then to get a bill which in my opinion was great value for money for a meal that left both of us very satisfied. We will most certainly be back!
We had a fantastic meal - delicious food
Portion sizes seemed smaller this time and meats not as soft and delicious as usual. Staff came back three times to ask how we’d like to pay when we paid cash as soon as we received the bill and one member of staff repeateded the same patter about ‘did we enjoy our meal’ having said the same thing to us less than 5minutes earlier. All a bit disappointing for somewhere we usually love
Lovely food and great service. My son loved the chilli prawns.
Excellent meal before our trip to the theatre, will definitely be back
Everything was delicious , Service was wonderful, First time I have taken the Family along and they loved it.
As always, a great experience! The food is always delicious and it's a great place to take visitors. Love the tapas style - makes it so easy to try many different flavors.
Great food as ever. Service was a bit rushed - kept being told how busy they were. Always visit when I am in edinburgh as I love the food!
Can’t recommend it highly enough. It’s an absolute gem
Another outstanding meal at Mother India's Cafe. There were five of us and we ordered quite a lot but there was nothing left at the end! Favourite dish was the special Railwayman's curry - really delicious.
We had such a lovely evening on Friday. The food was totally delicious. The huge advantage of the tapas style was that we all tried things we wouldn’t normally order in a traditional restaurant and we loved every dish - all very tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful with all food coming in a steady stream of dishes. Will definitely recommend and return when back in Edinburgh. Thank you
The food was very tasty - hot and fresh! What really sealed it for us was the service - prompt, friendly and they went above what was required by a restaurant. Thank you!
Great place, love the tapas idea, which gives you a chance to sample different dishes. Quick service.
We had heard many wonderful things about Mother India, so I booked it for my partner’s birthday. I’m not a huge Indian food fan in the UK but this restaurant has changed my mind. I’ve been to India and the food reminded me of the food we had there, full of flavour and spices without the extreme heat that most Indians think is essential. Service was excellent and it was extremely good value for money. The dishes looked small but there was more than enough and we couldn’t finish it. It completely exceeded my expectations and have already planned our next visit. Thank you!
Very good restaurant with excellent food. The service is first class and the staff is thoughtful.
Excellent food and excellent service
Great food, great value. Only downside was a slight wait for our table, but the restaurant was very busy.
I was recommended to eat here and it was superb.
Really good food!
Please open in Birmingham!
A great way to try a range of dishes- all excellent quality
Music could be more authentic
What can I say other than "Excellent". Really enjoyed the concept of the tapas philosophy. We were a party of 4 and ordered two mains and a veg dish a person which was plenty for us along with a garlic pitta bread (they are very large). The staff were very attentive and very knowledgeable on the different dishes. When and if we get back to Edinburgh we will definitely book again.
