Harden's survey result
For 25 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. This year diners have submitted over 60,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK.
“Ten years of being at the top of the tree in Nottingham” – a curry strip Indian whose “excellent, authentic” and relatively light dishes (“best biryani ever”!) are “a little different to the usual” subcontinental offerings. Another major plus is that it’s “run by such a welcoming family”.
“The setting is not that appealing”, but that’s about the only caveat with this “warm” Indian “on Nottingham’s curry strip”. While “traditional” in style, its dishes are “cleaner-flavoured than the norm”, while “pleasant” and “personal” service also elevates it above the competition.
Popular family-run fixture in the city centre “serving Indian cuisine at its best, using fresh ingredients and home techniques to bring the true flavours of the Punjab”! Staff are “most attentive”, too, with diners “treated as special guests”.
A family-run city-centre venture that attracts plaudits for “real, rather than anglicised, Indian cooking” – “still the best biryani around!” – and a “very friendly” front-of-house; “upstairs is a bit soulless”, though.
Now this principle is being followed by Shelley and Sunny Anand who have opened Nottingham's The Cumin. It is based around the traditional Indian restaurant with a touch of modern decor to create a relaxed and comfortable dining environment.
The restaurant capacity is 74 covers over two floors, 20 on the ground and 54 on the first floor. Our first floor restaurant offers more privacy from the road and is an ideal venue for private functions, with a full sound system into which you are welcome to plug in your own music or allow us to arrange a DJ.
Being in the city centre, we are also an ideal place to hold your business meetings or lunches. Contact us to arrange a truly productive business meeting with a delicious lunch.

The Cumin Restaurant Diner Reviews
"A pre-arranged booking by a group of 30 college mates from the intake of 1976 were looked after quite superbly by the family run Cumin. As the organiser of this self proclaimed bunch of grumpy old men, no complaints for the first time in 40 years! Indeed, universal praise for the food and service - never before and probably never again. Food and service were really very good and much appreciated by a crowd who know their Indian food. Nothing but praise for Sunny and his family, particularly his brother for the production of such great meal. Yes, the establishment is a bit nondescript but the welcome and food more than compensate."
