Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I enjoy Indian food and have eaten in restaurants all around the country. I have no hesitation to say this is some of the top food I have tasted! Portion sizes are great, the spices were at the top level. To conclude the staff and...management were friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this for food and drinks. It’s also located in the centre of Nottingham town so it’s a 2min walk from the live music bars and shows!More

Reviewed 19 August 2022 via mobile

Last week I visited to Nottingham for a university conference with my colleagues. We decided to go for a Indian cuisine. While searching on trip advisor we came across The Cumin restaurant which is highly rated and we were not disappointed. The food tasted amazing...with great flavours. The service was brilliant. As a big group we seated on 1st floor of the restaurant which had great layout. I will definitely recommend and re-visit this restaurant whenever I travel to Nottingham.More

We visited Cumin without a prior booking, expecting it to be quiet as it was midweek. The downstairs dining area was already full, with us taking the last table…a testament to how popular this place is. The food and service were first rate, with the...staff eager to advise us about the dishes they served. We would definitely visit again if we are Nottingham, thanks for looking after us so well.More

First time here and will be back when next In Nottingham. Hadn’t booked a table but we were warmly received and made to feel very welcome from the off. We ordered a light dinner and would whole heartedly recommend the lamb madras, chicken dopiaza, tarka...dhal, lime rice and keema naan. All other dishes we saw leaving the kitchen looked incredibly appetizing too. Service was prompt and polite throughout which was so refreshing. Comedy moment was when the one of the staff presented a surprise birthday ice cream, candle and all, to a diner who looked a touch bemused as it was not his birthday - they had got the booking confused with another one - his card is in the post!More

We went with daughter and grandson who had not been before. Despite not having been for a while, Sunny greeted us like long lost friends and we were made very welcome. The food was 1st class as always. We had Lamb Rogan Josh, Butter chicken...and Muttar Paneer for mains, as well as an assortment of starters. An excellent meal served efficiently by the staff.More

We are a family of 5 adults and 2 children and had not booked but we were made very welcome by all of the staff who were kind and attentive especially with our children. Service was excellent and all of the meals were first class,...certainly some of the best Indian food we have ever had including an extended holiday we had a few years ago in India. I had the tandoori combination which not only tasted great but looked superb too. Unfortunately, we only occasionally visit Nottingham but will definitely be back when we are in the City. Highly recommended!More

All four of us had a superb meal. As a vegan, I appreciated my extensive menu. My friend and I shared two dishes, tarka dahl and chana bahji, both of which were excellent. The accompanying pilau rice and chapatti were also excellent. Our two colleagues...had a variety of meat dishes and were very enthusiastic. The wine and Cobra beer finished off the food nicely. With such high quality food, it represented good value for money. Next time I visit Nottingham, I am definitely returning here.More

Oh how I have missed this place!! We retuned recently to Nottingham after over a decade away. Our dinner reservation was only going to be one place and that was Cumin. The evening got off to a great start when Sonny welcomed us at the...door and amazingly remembered our faces after all these years !! Before we sat Sonny knew what my order was going to be and I didn’t deviate - Tandoori Mixed Grill !!! It did not disappoint the very same high standard and excellent flavour was presented and we loved it !! Amazing ! 5 stars Sonny and the team. Thanks and hope to see you again soon . Highly recommend this lovely place in Nottingham central 👍👍👍More
