Extensive menu. well priced, dishes full of flavour. Great atmosphere and no trouble for the gluten-intoleran. Good range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Slightly short-staffed on a Monday when we visited, but obviously popular.

We like this place. It's unassuming and unpretentious. It caters significantly to a college and young professional crowd. The service is usually good and reasonably attentive. The food has remained very good, perhaps a notch or two above average. More recently, servings appeared to be slightly smaller, but still a good value. It is undoubtedly the best Indian restaurant around,... More

I really wanted curry tonight. We were rapidly greeted, seated and served. The garlic nan was delicious and my husband enjoyed his vegetable soup. My medium lamb curry was delicious as was the madras curry ordered by my spouse. Service was outstanding and the quiet ambiance was nice.

Dining out during a snowfall in Lewiston, ME for a Southerner can be daunting, but Mother India beckoned with glowing interior lights. We stumbled in out of the cold and were immediately greeted with a friendly smile. Angeli (spelling) answered our questions about numerous menu items with detail and love, and the food, once served, delighted everyone at the table.... More

We love Indian food and have eaten it all over the world. We regularly drive the one hour from Waterville to Lewiston just to eat here. Almost every meal has been exceptionally flavorful, service generally very good and friendly. Sometimes there's a tiny bit of inconsistency in the flavors, which seems to be related to who's cooking. I guess that... More

I was looking at some of the other reviews, many of which were more positive. Maybe the chef was away and someone else was making the food tonight, but, if what I ate this evening was any measure of Mother India, than, honestly, you need to go elsewhere. Beyond having spend several weeks in India, I have been to countless... More

We all opted for the buffet which offered a nice selection of Indian dishes. The quality of the food and service made this a place to which we were determined to return on this visit to Lewiston. Most dishes were interestingly spiced without being "excessively" hot. The one dish which was very hot was clearly labeled and, I thought, also... More
