Description: Motherland Spice is a family run restaurant started in 2012. Since opening we have been highly successful because of our unique, authentic Indian & Nepalese cuisine. Motherland Spice has brought expert chefs from India & Nepal to bring the real taste of authentic cuisne in Britain. We are famous in Scotland for our 'Chicken Tikka Baja' and 'Lamb Tawa' dishes and are proud to be the only restaurant in Scotland to serve these two dishes. We also specialise in our South-Indian cuisine. At Motherland Spice we like to think of our food as a journey, one during which we can take you places which will excite, places you might not have thought of going, but ones you will enjoy once you get there. Our menu takes you on a trip from the ultra-cool slopes of the Everest to the fiery plains of Madras, from the lush valleys of Swat to the bountiful Indian Ocean, with more than several stops along the way.

We came here in January thinking that it would be quiet after the busy festive period, but were mistaken, the place was full - a sign that it is a local favourite, and rightly so!

One of the dishes that stood out was the aloe gosht (lamb dish), it was so succulent and tasty, you could tell the produce is of a high quality. We had the table buffet, which I'd recommend for its great value, but I challenge you to finish it all...there is so much food! The tikka dishes (prawn and chicken) were also excellent. Though I am looking forward to my return visit to try more of the menu.

To top it all off the service is so warm and friendly, you are made to feel like a guest more than a client.

Stopped off here on our way home from Arran, and it's worth seeking out this restaurant's back street location. It doesn't look much from the outside and is a bit plain on the inside - but don't let that fool you. The service was excellent and after about a half hour wait the food arrived - it was wonderful! I've had a lot of south Asian food over the decades, but can't remember any tastier than this. There was plenty of it too, but I still wanted to eat more at the end. Delicious.
