Love this place! Great food, nice comfortable atmosphere. Nice drinks & wines to chose from. Small taxi ride from Michigan Avenue that we happily take every visit.

Never had a bad dish here -- as good or better than any of the places in the Indian strip on Devon. But their Nepalese selections -- the dal and the cauliflower especially -- are superb. The tandoori vegetables are the tandooriest. Reservations for dinner on Fridays and Saturdays are definitely recommended as it is often quite busy and there... More

This is the spot my best friend and I go to whenever we get a chance. We've been going to it year after year and I think the flavor gets better each time. She and I absolutely love this restaurant. We always order the tikka masala, and it's honestly the best tikka masala we've both ever had and then we... More

A great restaurant and perfect if you need to get away from the masses on the Mile. We like spicy and the Chicken Vindaloo was awesomely spicy - a rarity for us - my husband always has to request a hot sauce to supplement and didn't this time. I had the Chicken Tika Masala and it was also spicy -... More

We were a party of seven adults and one infant. Our visit to Cumin was in honor of my sister-in-law's birthday. We had an early dinner service reservation and were seated in the front window, between two other large parties. Everyone ordered something different, and each person was pleased with his/her selection. This included one person who had not tried... More

This was a super experience for my teen-age nieces who were visiting Chicago, as well as two other relatives who live in the city. None of us had had Nepalese food before, and we all thought the flavors were fantastic. We were not interested in the buffet, as we arrived toward the end of lunch time, and ordered from the...

Service was attentive and friendly, but we thought the food was just ok for the price we paid. We ordered a lamb dish as our main, and the meat was very poor quality. Even though the rest of our food was pleasant, the lamb tasted like much cheaper meat than it should have for the price we paid.

We decided to go for a lunch at Cumin. When we got there, the server ignored us, then we were seated by the manager. We were told that the buffet was much better than ordering, but the food we wanted was not at the buffet so we ordered our lunch, it took over an hour and when we were asked... More
