Dining out during a snowfall in Lewiston, ME for a Southerner can be daunting, but Mother India beckoned with glowing interior lights. We stumbled in out of the cold and were immediately greeted with a friendly smile. Angeli (spelling) answered our questions about numerous menu items with detail and love, and the food, once served, delighted everyone at the table.... More

We love Indian food and have eaten it all over the world. We regularly drive the one hour from Waterville to Lewiston just to eat here. Almost every meal has been exceptionally flavorful, service generally very good and friendly. Sometimes there's a tiny bit of inconsistency in the flavors, which seems to be related to who's cooking. I guess that... More

I was looking at some of the other reviews, many of which were more positive. Maybe the chef was away and someone else was making the food tonight, but, if what I ate this evening was any measure of Mother India, than, honestly, you need to go elsewhere. Beyond having spend several weeks in India, I have been to countless... More

We all opted for the buffet which offered a nice selection of Indian dishes. The quality of the food and service made this a place to which we were determined to return on this visit to Lewiston. Most dishes were interestingly spiced without being "excessively" hot. The one dish which was very hot was clearly labeled and, I thought, also... More

We joined another couple who were familiar with Mother India recently and had a pleasant evening and very good food. Our server was very nice and great at explaining the large varied menu, offering to customize the spice level in several items. We throughly enjoyed our meal and the service - all topped off with a quite reasonable cost !

Mother India's food is always great but what stands out is the service-- it is impeccable -- even on the phone.

Not being familiar with Indian food I took a chance with a business acquaintance. We were warmly treated by the hostess who helped us with the menu. What a great surprise..everything was delicious and balanced..meat,vegetables, nan bread and tea.I`ve been back 3 times in a month and look forward to going again soon for the buffet.
