Excellent service, very good food. Highly reccomended. You can choose how spicy you want the food. Medium was perfect for us. Our son had a birthday and got a wonderful surprise from the staff. If you want good Indian food, look no further. Klaus

A very positive experience at Mother India. We walked across Oslo for this meal and were not disappointed. Mango Murgh and Gosht Tikka Masala both with rice were Very tasteful at Ok prices. A visit is strongly recommended if you like Indiana food.

I booked a table for the family(two adults and two teenagers). We had a lovely meal, great atmosphere and great service. Yes, it is a small restaurant, but we experienced it at its best as an intimate and service orientated restaurant. Highly recommended.

Mother India is Norway’s oldest Indian restaurant. Run by the Sharma family the restaurant opened its door in 1993, and has been with the same family in the same location ever since. We are proud of this, but also humble to our guests' expectations of us.We regard ourselves as cultural ambassadors of India through the food we serve. Hence, as our guest you are not a customer but part of our family.We constantly source our ingredients from different suppliers, searching for the very best. That is why we also blend our own spice mixtures. This gives our food a unique flavor, and the recipes are a well kept secret.
