The food is really very very good. Everything we have tried has always been fresh and super yum. When it says it's hot, it's hot. And you can always be rest assured that you will leave very satisfied both with the food and the price. Staff are friendly and the room itself isn't very modern, but is nice and comfortable....

Having been coming here for years and is consistently good food at reasonable prices with good portions. Their Tandoori Chicken & Onion Bhaji are great starters and their butter chicken is best i have had very rich tasty sauce and fish curry has amazing flavours. Would give 5 stars but believe they need to add specials to their menu monthly... More

Great service as well! Being Indian there are only a very few Indian restaurants that I enjoy and Cumin's... More

We chose this for a mid week evening meal and were not disappointed. We had our staple Indian choices of butter chicken and peshwari - both were lovely. A novelty was the spinach rice. Great idea and it was really tasty. It was quiet but they had enough waiters for the tables and we were served attentively but not over... More

I'm South Indian so it takes a lot for me to compliment a Northener but the genuine service and fantastic food always keeps my family coming for more. We live more than 15 clicks away but make the effort when we can on a Friday /Saturday night to get our fix. The consistency and taste of the palak makai is... More

I have lived in the UK, Middle East and in various states in Australia, Cumin is the most consistent and best indian I have been to. Forget the "total of 4" poor reviews, these people can't even spell, never mind appreciate great service and food. Obviously competitors that are jealous, as they haven't got a clue...... I travel 20 minutes... More

Have been looking for good Indian food , for a long time . And finally found a hidden gem . The murg peshwari and palak paneer were absolutely authentic . The service was impeccable , our water glasses were filled constantly without being intrusive . Would highly recommend this fantastic restaurant

We went to this restaurant on a Friday night. Service was vry slow, it took an hour to get the entres and more than 1.5 hrs to get mains. Kids wee getting impatient. The owners looked confused and visibly stressed. I strictly advise not to go there in weekends.

This is a local of ours. We keep going back. Why? The quality of the food and also the price. I believe very good value for what you get. I am slowly working my way through the menu. So far I have enjoyed everything I've tried. I am not an expert in Indian cuisine but it all tastes amazing and... More
