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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

It's not surprising that this restaurant won at The Curry Awards. Great restaurant with very friendly and organised staff. Food was amazing and portion sizes were perfect. We had the Business Man's set lunch. Very good value. Would certainly recommend it.

My order was placed at 5:25 and arrived at 7:45. As the order hadn’t arrived after two hours I phoned the restaurant to ask where it was, and was told it was out for delivery. The driver left the restaurant at 7pm with my meal...and didn’t arrive until 7:45. Unsurprisingly it was stone cold. Extremely disappointed not to be informed that I would have to wait so long.More

Had dinner tonight as a family of 4…..all adults. Food was absolutely exceptional, service was professional and very friendly. We all had different mains and each one was excellent. Best Indian food in the West of Scotland without a doubt.

Probably the best Indian restaurant in the country. The quality of the food is nothing short of outstanding, the service is friendly, and value for money, can't be beaten. We have visited more than a few times, and it doesn't matter what we pick from...the menu, it never fails to deliver. And naan bread....I thought I'd had delicious naans before, this place just kicks it up to a whole new level. Can't recommend highly enough!More

We’ve been to Motherland Spice regularly over the past year after receiving a recommendation. The food is consistently excellent and the service is very good too. The prices are competitive and cheaper than you’d expect to pay in places like Glasgow. We always believed you...had to go to Glasgow for a good curry but this definitely isn’t true. Motherland Spice is a great choice for an Indian restaurant in Ayrshire, it has all the old favourites and less common Nepalese dishes too, if you give it a try you won’t regret it.More
