The food, service and location are equally worth several visits to this great restaurant. They have just celebrated 10years and still going strong! The food is delicious and caters for all palates including those with allergies, vegans & vegetarians & carnivores, mild and wild-spice lovers! Raavi's Cumin is licensed (Kingfisher is on tap) but BYO wine is accepted. Take some... More

The food at Cumin is exceptionally good. Each dish is carefully prepared. The service is equally outstanding and friendly. The waitstaff are extremely attentive. Strongly recommended

My English husband and I always choose Cumin since we moved to the northern beaches, now 11 years ago. The popadoms, and the way the curries are prepared reminds us the most of the way they are done in England - we absolutely love it! We always receive a warm personal welcome and don't have to wait long to be... More

After reading good reviews here, we went to this restaurant last night for the first & last time. The food was below average and service was not even worth the mention. Not a single staff smiles here, after long time I felt alienated in an Indian restaurant. Entrees were horrible, seekh kebab came to table within 5mins of ordering which... More

We have been going to Cumin for many years and the food and service is always excellent. Ravi makes us feel at home every time we arrive. We feel bad sometimes as he sees us walk by headed for another restaurant. But we always come back. And we try to bring friends. Way to go Ravi.

My wife and I have been to Raavi's on several occasions. The staff is friendly, helpful and the service is typically quite prompt. The food is excellent and all their curries are gluten free for my wife who is a highly sensitive coeliac. Highly recommended!

We went here on a Thursday night for dinner around 7pm. We were offered pappadums to start with. The pappadums were crispy and tasty. The place was busy, nice atmosphere and welcoming. The service was ok, it was quite hard to get the waiter's attention and one of our mains was served a bit too late. Nice tasting food, good... More
