We had our work Christmas lunch at Qumins this year. There were 23 of us altogether so it was a big group booking. The service and food were both excellent. Many people said they would be going back with friends and family.

Always good food here. It's a little small and always noisy when busy, but worth it for the food. The staff are always very pleasant too. I have been dozens of times and would recommend if you want a fairly cheap but good and quick Indian meal. You can often get a table on Saturday night without booking too.

Went out for drinks and a curry with friends, but Qumins was just about OK for food. There are better places around the Cowley Road. Service was nice and with a smile, just the food let it down

Really good proper cooking. Lots of veggie choices and not too salty. We had a takeaway, it was delivered to time and with two free side dishes.

Three of us ate there early and it far surpassed our expectations. If you are looking for a far more authentic Asian meal that has bags of flavour ( not just heat ) this is for you.

Qumins is good, although can be inconsistent at times. When it's good though it is spot on and one of my faves. They make a great chicken Karai and service is very efficient and friendly.

We put ourselves in the hands of our waiter at Qumins... and he nailed it!! The starter was spiced chicken liver, with a beautiful, pillowy 'puri' bread - which were simply delicious. Mains were 'Handi' pot-cooked chicken, and Keralan fish with South Indian spices. Both were fabulous. If you're looking for inventive, authentic Indian cuisine that rocks with flavour -... More

Whenever my best friend comes to visit Oxford, we always grab a curry and so, over the course of several years, we have tried a good many in Oxford. Qumins got his vote for the best restaurant we have tried - and I have to agree with him. The food was delicious, was reasonably priced and the service was excellent.... More
