Good food and service

We have eaten at Cumin on a number of occasions and is one of if not the best Indian in Crows Nest. Food is always good with a big variety and service always friendly and efficient. Will be back.

For fantastic Indian food this is my first choice anywhere in Sydney. It provides very authentic Indian dishes and great service.

The food was good, the service a bit off...I guess because it was so busy (which says something about the food). Good range of spice in the dishes and Cumin's 'chili rating' seems about right to me (mind you that is subjective of course). Palak Paneer tasty, Rogan Josh nice amount of spice and a good choice. Really fresh Naan... More

We have been dedicated to Raavi's Cumin for the last 5 years! Absolutely love this place. The food is delicious, well priced, and best of all their staff are friendly and attentive! Food is quick to table once ordered as well. Raavi sees us come in and brings us a beer as we sit down, the best! We never go... More

I have been coming to this restaurant, on and off, with more or less the same group of people every few months or so for 4 years. It just gets better every time. There are two or three staples always ordered which is the butter chicken, palak paneer with either chicken or the vegetarian version and if people are feeling... More

The sadness that befell me with the loss (albeit a long time ago) of Curry Bazaar, Crows Nest, was one I thought I would never overcome. True, Shehnai filled a gap but now that it has gone I return once more to Cumin and I was not disappointed. I can judge an Indian Restaurant by the quality of the naan... More

We make our own dry roasted curry powders at home - so we rarely go out for curry for fear of getting something less than we can make at home. To our delight we had a great meal at Cumin. It is well worth a visit in our view.

Coming from England, finding a good Indian over here is a rare find, but Cumin in Crows Nest is one of the best I've found in Sydney so far. I love spicy food with good flavours and this is what this restaurant does well. It was relatively busy when we arrived but we managed to get a table no problem... More

This place was amazing! It was packed when we arrived but they found us a table with ease. Service was so prompt and attentive. The food was fabulous. We liked that the menu was so excited (lots of exclamation points)! The whole feel of the place was great. Loved it. The whole package!!
