Description: Mother India is Norway’s oldest Indian restaurant. Run by the Sharma family the restaurant opened its door in 1993, and has been with the same family in the same location ever since. We are proud of this, but also humble to our guests' expectations of us.We regard ourselves as cultural ambassadors of India through the food we serve. Hence, as our guest you are not a customer but part of our family.We constantly source our ingredients from different suppliers, searching for the very best. That is why we also blend our own spice mixtures. This gives our food a unique flavor, and the recipes are a well kept secret.

This was the best Indian food I've ever had. Including Indian food from the United States, Norway, and India.

“A little gem”
Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

Taken there by a colleague after a meeting on a Thursday night this humble restaurant was virtually full and after a great meal I can understand why,

It has been family owned and run for 20 years. They have a menu to suit all tastes and will adapt the level of spice. The service was excellent and the portion sizes just right. They have a selection of wines, beers and soft drinks.

Everything was spotlessly clean.

I hope I can go back to sample their new menu items in January.
