Morgantown has some amazing Indian food. Mother India is definitely a gem! The food here is outstanding served by a staff willing to help you decipher the menu and food item names on the buffet. I also really like how it's close to downtown, yet still has free parking in a private lot. I've never had issues with it, but... More

We enjoyed our chance visit for the lunch buffet so much that we followed it with a planned trip for dinner. The lunch buffet was delicioius and nicely priced. The atmosphere is clean and clutter-free with booths and tables with chairs. We ordered from the menu for dinner, each of us a different entree. I choose one that included a... More

I have only been there for lunch, but the buffet is excellent. Not the typical, less than impressive, food you find elsewhere. The iced mango drink is out of this world.

Had their buffet in the evening. Was fairly standard Indian food, but pleasant atmosphere and good experience.

First time ever having Indian food but won't be my last. True buffet was small but great for a beginner whom had no idea what to order. Staff and owners are very friendly. Favorite thing was the rice pudding and the honey balls. Craving them now and want more

This place is great for an experienced indian food connoisseur, or the occasional diner. The food is heavy, as most indian food is, but don't let that scare you. I mean that it is very filling as well as flavorful. The spices at this restaurant are rather toned down a bit for the american palate. This is actully a GOOD... More

We've travelled to SE Asia recently, so it's hard to compare American Indian food with SE Asia. It was very good. Nice service, friendly staff. We were pleased with our choices, Chicken Tikke Marsala. Would return

We went for lunch one day. It's not a huge place, you could miss it, if you are alone and watching the road, while looking for it. The area around the buffet is TIGHT. If you are a thin person, it's tight. So imagine, how tight it'll get, adding more people of various sizes. Perhaps they did this to allow... More

Aloo matar is outstanding, as is the palak paneer. Tandoori chicken tends to be a bit overcooked, but the tikka is outstanding. Can get a bit claustrophobic around the buffet when it's crowded--would love a bit more space there.

The lunch buffet is a good value and always consistent. They have the best Malaya Kofta, period. Coworkers from India say it's Americanized, but they still eat there more often than I do... Staff is wonderful and flavors pop.
