I have eaten here on several occasions and have been there with friends as well as on my own. The food and service are consistent. A suitable place for a business meeting or to take clients. The obligatory Indian buffet is nothing really special. But the some of the vegetables and menu choices are very good. I would recommend the... More

Got carry out Tika Masala for my wife and I--two orders. Sauce was very good and nicely spiced but not overly. Could have been a touch thicker. Chicken was excellent white meat chunks--no grissel. Appeared flame seared. Nice big bowl of basmati rice. 10% off internet orders (but no way to order online, so tell them when you call it... More

Overall pretty good. The waiter brought us naan but then took it away because we did not get the buffet. Kind of funny really but maybe it is a cultural difference. Not as spicy as we like but generally good Food. The garlic naan is very good. If you like Indian it is worth stopping in.

I love this restaurant! Great atmosphere and even better service. I had the rogan josh and probably one of the best meals I have ever had. They ask your spice level and truly make it to order. If you like Indian food now, you will love it after eating here.

I had the luncheon buffet with friends from Washington Courthouse. I have long been a fan of Indian food. Cumin is a quiet, pleasant roomy restaurant with unobtrusive but superb service. The buffet food was attractively presented and very tasty: not so peppery as to destroy subtle flavors. The coconut milk curry was unusual and excellent. In general, I found... More

I came in with a large group and we all ordered appetizers. They were all incredible. I had the samosas. Then I ordered the tandoori chicken and garlic naan which were so delicious. Many of my friends ordered vegatable dishes that were all incredible. We then had a dessert. I wish I knew the name of the incredible warm dessert... More

I love Indian food, and I typically visit one on the NW side. However, I was staying at Polaris this time and saw this one close to my hotel. The menu was extensive, so it was hard choosing. But, my sister and I settled on Malai Kofta and Tikki Masala. We also got samosas and the bread basket. WARNING: that... More

We have eaten here at least 12 times. Even when it was Bay Leaf. Until now, it was pretty good ranking closely behind Aab and New India. Tonight was a miss. We will not go back for a long time.

Ved P, Owner at Cumin Indian Restaurant, responded to this review

Hello, First of all, I apologize for the food. We don't like our guests to be disappointed, so it is very disheartening to hear that the food was not up to the level as it usually is. I hope you will return soon and give us another chance at redeeming ourselves. Thank you. More
