Excellent service from Mo and the team made our Friday curry night better than I was expecting. The Delicious food was served when we were ready, we didn’t feel hurried at all.

Visited with family and enjoyed a beautiful spicy curry. Service was superb throughout and very relaxed. I really enjoyed the red cabbage in the pickle tray as it's something I've not come across before at other Indian restaurants.

We visited on the 50% deal it was very crowded we had to wait we did book at one stage about 20 people outside waiting The service. Very slow the were overwhelmed really brought lompadoms in about 15mins then it was about 30 mins before...taking the order after that ran fairly quickly The food starter sheekh kebab was very good but the salad pretty poor and no sauce The main meal excellent couldnt fault it and. Tasty fresh naan pompadoms fresh and tasty too. So two courses and pompadoms for £15 for two people. Obviously normally wouldnt have been so busy worth a visitMore

Have been dining here for a few years now, after tonight would never return back here. They were very busy which I can appreciate, however staff were extremely rude, ignoring when I asked a question and just walked off, slamming down our food aggressively and...clearing plates! We were all really shocked and felt very uncomfortable and unwelcomed. Restaurant was dirty, food all over the floor dirty glasses given to us. The menus have been replaced to paper menus however there were stains and even biro pen marks on the menu. No Covid precautions in place in terms of hygiene! Waiters standing very close to use and leaning across us ect. Food was cold and could not get any staff attention to ask for assistance, more cutlery or the bill!! Definitely not how to treat customers!! This was my first outing since lockdown and wanted to support our local restaurant however I wish I had stayed at home!More

Just had our first Lockdown meal from Mother India. We normally eat at the restaurant but they are only catering for takeaways, the food was just as delicious and we really enjoyed it. I would recommend we all support our favourite restaurants in these hard...times and thus is definitely ours. Please support Mo and his staff. When we can socialize we will be returningMore

I've been using Mother India for takeaways for over 10 years. Never had a bad meal and food is lovely & piping hot. I ring up and drive over and wait no more than 5/10 minutes for them to bring it out from the kitchen,...while I sit and read the newspaper :-) Obviously, they are struggling without the restaurant income, so give them a try. They will also deliver but only have one driver.More

Me and my partner have just eaten at Mother India. Its been a while since we've eaten here but the food was splendid and so so fresh. The cook is a credit to the restaurant. The service was impeccable and very attentive. I've read previous...reviews on tripadvisor and I really find the reveiws so untrue. There was one reveiw stating the keema nan was red. I'm sorry but all keema nans are red as this is the colour of the mince meat cooked in spices. The staff are a credit to the restaurant. Our meal was cooked to purfection. I had the mother india special pathia which was beautiful. The meat was so tender and lots of it. My partner had the mother india balti and it was lovely and she ate every bit. We had a garlic nan to share which was lovely and fresh. Can't wait to return in the very near future. Many Thanks Mother India ⭐More

Despite the nice food the staff were very rude, standing round huddled together talking about us, clearly didn’t want us there so late, instead of saying that they were closing they vacuumed under our chairs while we were still eating and then brought the huge...mop bucket into the restaurant full of potent smelling disinfectant, not want you want to smell when eating - wouldn’t go againMore
