Somewhat bland provincial curry, was really more like a stew. Quite disappointed as were expecting some heat in the dishes we selected. Having said that the kebab and chop starters were nice and the ice cream and Irish coffee were delicious.

Have been before and was a little underwhelmed but pleased to say this visit was much better! Good service, nice menu, well cooked food (balti was particularly good) and finished off with a complimentary round of spirits. Will definitely be back!

Great choice and clearly cooked fresh, service is very friendly and good value for money. Even when busy they always find a space for a last minute booking

I love the food served at Cumin Club, always very tasty and reasonably priced. However the service leaves a lot to be desired. Once they get you in the door you are largely ignored. Our drinks orders were not what we wanted but the waiter...More

Went as a party of 30 plus as part of a stag do. The staff coped reasonably well with such a large party and were friendly. Although the meal took an overly long time (presumably because of the size of the group) the quality of...More
