After having visited an Indian restaurant in Portree earlier that week, which was great, we found ourselves located in a hotel across of Mother India. So, we decided to pay them a visit. Unfortunately, they were full (Thursday evening), so we left our number behind...More

Hard to sum up just how delicious the food is here - definitely not your standard British curry house! The black dal was absolutely brilliant, as was Smeena's slow cooked chicken. Highly recommended - but booking essential, it's a popular place!

Myself and my boyfriend visit Mother India regularly and cannot believe it is not considered to be the number one Indian restaurant in Glasgow! The food is fresh and varied with high standards and a fantastic dining experience. The basement is particularly quirky. The butter...More

The DK guidebook highly recommended this restaurant. I love Indian food and am often disappointed. This was not the case. I ordered the vegetarian option and everything was very tasty. The ambience in the upstairs dining room is also very special with warm woods and...More

I didn't know it ever was! First time visit and they had an extensive drinks menu including wine. Didn't notice any corkage details on the menu. I would recommend you go direct to them to check in case I missed it.
Can you take own wine if having set lunch menu or only if a la carte

Not sure if it's BYO because we went for lunch but I'm sure it's just a matter of a phone call to ask :-)
I am visiting Glasgow next week and am booked in for dinner at your main original branch, with my sons family. I would like to see your current menu , the website isn't working at this time , can you send me the menu ? Thanks
