“Great find in Cairns, wonderful food & staff.”
Reviewed 17 December 2013 via mobile

Would gladly recommend to all my friends if you after a real Indian meal, the flavours were awesome !!
There were 5 of us & everyone left there very happy.
Meals are really big enough to share if you like to try a bit of each & you could also make the rice for 2 as well if you just wanted a great tasting smaller lunch etc.
but mine had no problems eating it all for dinner - was a wonder family dinner.

“Lost its sparkle”
Reviewed 17 November 2013

This place has lost its touch. Hot no longer hot. Poor presentation. Waiter eating his dinner as he served and forgetting orders even although only two tables occupied. I won't be back!

“Amazing flavours”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

The Mother India is a small no frills resturant that has been in the same place for a number of years, it is close to a number of back packers. I ordered a meal that I have not previously had and was greated by what I can only describe as a mouth exploding experience of flavours. (for those in the know it was like popping candy). I would highly recommend this resturant and will visit again next time I am in Cairns.
