When I go to an ethnic restaurant I like to hear about the origination of the dish, for the waiter to know something about it's preparation and the ingredients, to impart knowledge and prepare my tastebuds for such exotic culinary delights as his establishment is ready to blow me away with. Not to point to a menu that still says 'extensively prepared' after 30 years. Such experiences have been missing from the huge majority of Indian restaurants from the very early days when the UK Indian restaurant elders across the land got together and invented the language, the congealed texture and day-glo colours of the ubiquitous standard fayre which masquerades as real Indian food. Thankfully not so at Qumin, which restores faith in Indian cuisine. The surroundings are sleek and sophisticated cafe style, in keeping with the area, the wine list is pretty good and the FRESHLY prepared food is just superb, with fish curries a speciality, though the menu covers Bangladeshi, Indian and Goan. This is the only Indian I've visited recently where a meal can be truly called an experience. We visited late one Saturday and were served by the owner, who made us want to come back here soon.This place sets the real standard, which is much higher than The Standard Indian restaurant can achieve (we went there a week later and it does not compare, though above average, which is not saying much for Indian restaurants!)
