This review is taken from the current (2013) edition.
Mother India's original restaurant, opened in 1990, has a reputation that keeps the place filled most days. This Glasgow favourite has played a major part in pushing the boundaries of Indian cuisine in the city in those intervening years. It has introduced exciting seafood ingredients – such as halibut and monkfish – to the standard Scottish-Indian menu. And it has experimented with flavours, successfully combining more unusual herbs such as fresh dill with chilli and ginger. The Mother India ethos has helped turn Glasgow diners from curry-lovers to curry-aficionados, and the owner, Monir Mohammed, has also been key in gathering the team of chefs to compete in national Curry King contests. In short, Mother India is essential to the city. But as the Mother India family has grown – it offers diners several sister restaurants in Glasgow and Edinburgh – the matriach has started to grow a tad frail, losing a little of the startling and ground-breaking flair that once defined it. That said, it is still a cracking good curryhouse and when it hits the heights it is thoroughly delightful.
