This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and staff are really polite. It is a small restaurant so would advise to book if a larger group. I have visited a few times and never had a bad meal and the staff are always eager to help with suggestions. Fair prices and a good location as there's a lovely pub opposite the... More

Excellent take away last night from Blue Cumin. Fantastic quality and awesome flavors. Best curry I've had outside India!

We decided to have a takeaway on Saturday night and rang the Blue Cumin to place our order before collecting 15 minutes later. I cannot fault the service or the quality of the food.The order was ready minutes after I arrived and when we sat down to eat, it was one of the best chicken madras we have had.The waiters... More

Hardly noticeable in Magor Square, the Cumin is amongst the the best sub-continent food I have had anywhere. Not suitable for large parties so for me you can actually have a chat with friends without having to shout. And great service too!

It was very quiet when we visited for our meal, however the food was 'spot on'. Very tasty and well presented. Staff friendly, we were well looked after.

Collected a take away with a group of friends. Friendly staff but food just so so. There must be 6 or 7 takeaways servicing the local villages and this one was nothing special. Meals made with the same bought in spice sauces and tasting just like the competitors. Sad but nothing more to add. Probably won't be visiting it again... More

It doesn't always work out when a friend recommends a restaurant, this one is a success. It's a slightly unusual restaurant in that, it has a very small frontage and the restaurant appears to almost be a corridor, just six tables. There are no windows in the whole place. Having said all that it is still well worth the visit,... More

Visited this restaurant yesterday with family visiting the area. Lovely setting in a village square and very small with only 6 or 8 tables low lights and personal setting. Food was just beautiful with service that made you feel welcome. Just perfect

Small, intimate restaurant in a tucked away corner of Magor square. Food excellent and service very good.
