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.

Seriously, Mother India must be one of the best Indian restaurants in Oslo. The menu has plenty of options, and the Chana Masala was soooo tasty! I live close by, so can luckily order take away whenever I want, hurray! Nice staff also :)

We really we're craving some good Indian food and came across this wonderful little restaurant. We didn't have a reservation but they managed to find us a table even though it was quite crowded. It took awhile to get served and we ordered Pkoras, Veggie Biryani, Shahi Paneer, Navrattan Korma, Naan and Cheer Raita.
Our waiter actually told us "no - you have ordered too much food" we laughed and said, "we are absolutely starving - bring it all!"
It was just the perfect amount of food and was served in this atmospheric restaurant that smelled so nice. It was pretty quiet and our waiter was quite attentive once the food arrived but then he disappeared and we waited nearly 20 minutes for someone to come by so we could pay - I actually walked over to the serving area to let them know that we wanted our bill so we could go.
The entire meal came to NOK 735 (including 25% VAT).
Even with the slow service I would still say it was our best Indian dining experience food-wise in Norway.

We came to this place without a reservation on a friday afternoon/evening and were lucky enough to get squeezed in at a table for two... Good service, great food and a great atmosphere. Due to the size of the restaurant it could be a bit noisy. It makes a great atmosphere - but if you have som issues with noise and your hearing, this might be a challenge...

Had great Indian food here. One of the best in oslo, but best in service.
Recommend to book in advance.
