Wanting to try another place off the beaten path of the traditional downtown places, we hoped a cab to this Indian restaurant for a casual business dinner. What a great find. We ordered several appetizers and plates which were shared by the table and every plate was very good. Definitely worth a try.

Dimly lit, love the atmosphere. Got Indian and Nepalese music playing, and the employees try to be as nice as they can. It was really cute to see the hostess moving all the menus to the exact seats we sat at since we were 3 people at a 4 person table. All the dishes we ordered were super creamy and... More

Cumin is a small restaurant that does a great job in proving flavorful and authentic Nepalese and Indian food. Service is decent and the owner helps out as well. Nice experience!

Cumin was so flavorful...went with friends who live in Nepal, and they said that everything was very authentic. The goat curry was incredible. The service was fantastic...I think every person working in the restaurant were at our table at least once, and they were incredibly attentive. It was a great experience.

Came for dinner with a party of 4, and were quickly seated. First round of drinks also came quickly while we were perusing the extensive menu. Never having had Nepalese food before, I opted for the namche bazar ko sekuwa (seasoned goat), as well as the lamb curry as a backup. It felt like the food took a bit longer... More

One of the best Indian places in Chicago. Service and food are always consistent. Variety of Nan is great too. Highly recommend!

This restaurant was the highlight of our Chicago trip. We stumbled in, seeking an experience, and we certainly got one. My boyfriend and I, in our twenties and casually dressed, received nothing but the best service as we dined (despite our appearances). We indulged in the perfectly crisp pappadums which come free with the meal, and then proceeded to eat... More

A very extensive ala carte menu comprising both popular Indian and Nepalese dishes, the service was good but the food was outstanding and the portions generous, we had enough left overs for another two meals. Highly recommended and worth a visit.
