Mother Palace is my favorite Kichijoji restaurant

Mother Palace is one of my favorite Indian restaurants. It is in Kichijoji, not far from the JR station. I’ve been there many times and enjoy it. If you are ever in the area, you should pop in.

Its staff are friendly and attentive. They will guide you through the menu and offer recommendations. I like them as they seem to be great people.

The restaurant is beautiful and colorful. I found the ceiling interesting, though! And everything was clean and polished. Indian music usually plays quietly in the background. The ambience is good.

I admit I haven’t eaten from their menu extensively. But I have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. Usually, I go for lunch. Their deals for the noon crowd are reasonable. 

My most often ordered item is chicken curry and mango lassi. They are very nice. Of course, you can choose nan or rice. You also get soup and salad.  

Where is Mother Palace?

It’s in Kichijoji’s Shoe Plaza Building (Floor B1). You’ll find that on Sun Road. The address is 1-9-10 Kichijoji-Honcho, Musashino City, Tokyo.  Here is a map.

  • Lunchtime 11 am to 4 pm
  • Dinnertime until 4 pm to 11 pm

Do they only have Indian curries?

No, they also have katsu curry and rissole (hamburg) curry too!

Wrapping up

Mother Palace isn’t very crowded at lunchtime. Well, not in my experience. That might be because it is in the basement. Don’t let that put you off. Head downstairs and enjoy.

Anyway, I like the food and the staff. Both are equally good. And I can’t complain about the prices. They are very reasonable. Another reason why I like it is because it is in Kichijoji. After lunch, you could do street photography or head to Inokashira Park.

I need to go to Mother Palace at night one day. It would be good to see what it is like in the evening. I’ll let you know when I do that!
