Although the Mother India empire spreads itself across cafés, delis & curry houses in Glasgow & Edinburgh, the original Westminster Terrace restaurant is the daddy. Deceptively accommodating, it operates on three floors: contemporary-styled basement, small ground level space & larger, Edwardian-retro dining room upstairs. Intimate couples & office nights out can happily co-exist here. The kitchen serves up fresh Indian food, prepared with a nod to the Scottish surroundings, & it merits the plaudit of ‘best in the city’. You might start with Punjabi-spiced baked haddock & roast tomatoes, before a robust dish of chilli & garlic chicken or vegetarian aloo sag dosa (a rice pancake stuffed with spinach & potato, with lentil curry on the side). Menus cover all bases & options, but the weekend lunch (two courses for £10.50) is especially good value.
