Apart from being chronically understaffed - The food was awesome! Next time we will BYO (like everyone else did that's obviously been there before) because service isn't great. Only have 2 wait people on peak time isn't great for them or your experience. But saying that the menus good and the foods value for money but more than that really... More

Delicious hearty curries are served here and recipes seem authentically good. Service is well mannered and orderly. Food comes out at a reasonable pace. Lamb biriyani is divine.

The ability to freely chose any curry on the menu and have it served gluten free made for open and easy selection of dishes to share. The food was tasty and the waitress very attentive.

Decided to visit Raavi's Cumin Restaurant after reading the good reviews, we normally eat closer to home in the Hills district, however drove over to Crows Nest and really glad we did. The food was delicious. We like our Indian food spicy/hot and that is what we got. We ordered a Non Vegetarian platter for two and then had Murg... More

I'm struggling to see how other reviews score so well, and it's not like we had a one-off experience. We visited on a Friday night. Even if they fixed the atmosphere, Raavi's Cumin would be ok, but even then not much else. The restaurant is a plain rectangular room with lacklustre decoration, which means it's extremely noisy when busy. Tables... More

I 've enjoyed many Indian dishes over the the years..whether emanating from the North or South, but without doubt Ravi's mouthwatering food is some of the tastiest I've eaten.Good atmosphere and excellent service too.
