From the outside you just see a little hut. But the inside is a lovely restaurant. Great service, fair prices and great food. I loved how cozy the restaurant felt.

Don't blink when you are driving down Leavenworth St, because you just might miss it! But believe me when I say that it is well worth keeping an eye out for. This little Indian restaurant not only has fantastic Indian cuisine but those who own and run it are some of the nicest and most genuine people you could ever... More

We frequently drive downtown to get takeout from Mother India and it has always been great. The portion sizes are enough for dinner and we order an extra Naan so we can have another meal (lunch) with the leftovers. We picked up some food in the past week and could not believe it was from the same restaurant. The sauce... More

I was skeptical as we drove in, but my son insisted we'd love Mother India. He was right! The tiny place was nearly full, but we got a table by the window. The menu had lots of options, service was fast and the food was great - tasty, but not Indian-hot. And oh, my, the bill was tiny too! Definitely... More

Mother India is a very small restaurant. I love Indian restaurants where they cook and serve the food and don't have a buffet. I had a nice aloo gobi and other folks at my table had various curries. As someone else indicated in another review, their garlic naan was great. On a cold night, there is little room to wait... More

My favorite food on the road is Indian food. And considering I'm traveling almost every week, I've tried my share of Indian food....but this is the first place I've been to that puts black beans in their dal. I felt like I was eating vegetarian chili. I also ordered the paratha and apparently they didn't have any dough made and... More

I don't get here as often as I would like, but when I do, this place never disappoints. When you drive my, it doesn't look like much...it's a small, old building made out of concrete block. But you don't go here for the ambiance...you go here because the food is amazing. It's my favorite Indian restaurant in Omaha and I've... More

While it seems like this restaurant is too small to even be a sit down place, it does have 7 tables and the staff who runs it is very quick so even if there is a wait it isn't long. The food is delicious! Best Indian food in Omaha and I am so glad we tried it out!

You drive buy the place and think how can they win the best of Omaha award every year? The restaurant is SMALL and cramped. If you don't get there early, expect to wait, probably outside because there is no lobby in the building. But the food.... That's why you go there. Excellent tastes, you can tell the different dishes just... More
