We were looking forward to eating at Cumin since the restaurant is a perennial choice for Cincinnati's top 20. What a disappointment! The bar area was quite sterile & was not "lively" at 8:00 PM on a Friday evening. The dining area was a bit warmer, but the food did not come close to meeting our expectations of Indian fusion a la the former Tabla in NYC & Vermillion in Chicago. The dishes had no cohesion with each other and were mediocre at best. Their signature dish, butter chicken, was close to uneatable. The proprietors have opened an inexpensive grill next door named M, & I guess this is their new identity and cash cow while Cumin has become an after thought.
