Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ordered a take away as had some unexpected friends who had a dog so changed from dinning in to a take away. The food was great nice and hot, arrived on time and was just as good as eating in.

In 30 years of regularly eating at Mother India I have never been disappointed. They never fail to serve excellent food at good prices. Wonderful choices, great portion sizes, and lovely warm greeting by Manager Mo and staff. Great for gluten free requirements too -...a real bonus 👍😀More

Came here again after a great meal. My daughter is Celiac, the staff were so welcoming and again, such a top curry. Their menu is so informative and you can easily find suitable requirements. Definitely worth a visit if you’ve never been before. Will certainly...be back again. Well done Mother India👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👍🏻More

One of the best Indian dining. I told them to make the food desi style and they did just that. I had a white friend with me as well and he also loved it. Good service good food. Keep up the good work guys. 27...years of service apparently, I can see why! They have a 5 start food rating also I noticed.More

Great little restaurant. First impressions are important, and I immediately thought how professional the staff are. Always available but never in your face and knowledgeable to answer questions about allergens. The menu had a lot of choice and the quality of the food was excellent....Reasonably priced too. Bring your own alcohol. Will definitely be returning.More

We have been regularly coming to Mother India for many years and have never been disappointed with our welcome or our food. Nothing is too much trouble and if there is something you like that is not on their menu, Mo and his staff will...endeavour to try and find something to suit your taste. The added bonus is that you can take your own drinks. If you try Mother India, you'll never need to go anywhere else.More

There are lots of places to enjoy a curry in Boldmere, but this is definitely our “go to” favourite. We have been coming to Mother India regularly for years. The food is always lovely and we receive a warm welcome from the staff on every...visit. Great that you can take your own drink, which makes it a really reasonably priced evening.

Mother India restaurant, was a staple eatery in Boldmere, until now! We have been regular diners here over the past fifteen years, albeit not since Covid appeared, but booked for a quiet valentines dinner last night. Arrived at 8.00pm and was greeted by the manager,...shown to a table in the front and given menus. Shortly after, the manager approached and advised that he had made a mistake and that this table was for a 'preferred' customer [young guy with moll] and that we [60's generation} would have to move. We were shown to a table at the rear of the room, by the toilet door access! We were overlooked and our order was not taken for at least an hour, after which and once chosen, we waited for a further 30 minutes to be served. No apologises were given for delays! The restaurant was not even half full. The food [?] arrived without certain dishes ordered and we had to wait- waiter dumped them on table and we started. I ordered a Bangledeshi dish called "Monsoon", which was fish based. What was oresented was a tomato sauce with two small fillets of rubbery fish, which were inedible, tasteless and looked like debris left by a 'monsoon'. Side dishes were tasteless and very small portioned. My wife had chosen a "Lamb Balti' which was the size of a starter and tasteless. All the food was cold and "NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE". The restaurant is dull, uninspiring and the staff were unhelpful, especially the manager, whom looked, dare I say, as if he should have had a good grooming. We were not asked if we would like anything else to eat and I requested the bill. This was actioned and paid and we retrieved our coats and left. The manager and staff disappeared into the kitchen and we were not offered the courtesy of a goodbye. Don't know if this behaviour is the "general norm" now, in dining out, but I would advise anyone looking to eat here, to be aware that they might experience a disappointing event I will be "voting with my feet" - goodbye Mother IndiaMore
