So i've eaten here I think 4 times now with mixed opinions about the different dishes that i've had. The 4 stars in my review refer to the best dishes. So twice I've ordered the paneer starter here, and twice I've been disappointed (I forgot that I had ordered it before :L ). In absolute terms its probably pretty good,... More

Simply excellent food where have the sense that you eat authentic Indian food. Service is as good as the food. Prices are fair for the quality and quantity of the food. Would absolutely recommend a visit if you are nearby.

I had lamb korma, which was the best I've ever had! Everything was great. The samosas weren't greasy, and my kids loved the food too!

My wife and I sat on the outdoor patio. Beautiful weather and great service. very reasonable priced. I would go again, the food is high end, a cut above most Indian places we have been to.

This is not your common or garden Indian. Yes, the traditional curries are there, but so are dishes such as the Goan fish curry which are a great addition to the usual fare. The restaurant is quite small so best to book , so it is surprising that the service is a bit slow. Not annoyingly so, but we found... More

Sometimes you have to take a gamble on a restaurant visiting a new city, this restaurant was fabulous. The chicken liver starter was lovely, all the mains top quality. The service was especially good, I highly recommend this restaurant.

Visited with friends on a Monday evening. Varied menu with many unusual dishes. Very good service, offering clear advice when asked for. As always the standard of the food was excellent. Well worth making a reservation if in a group.

Qumins menu is a cut above average, with unusual dishes, friendly service and an outdoor "marquee" area for al fresco summer dining. The Cowley Road area used to be famous for Indian restaurants - many of which are closing, or dropping in standards. Qumins retains its high standards of food and service and over the past six months has become... More
