Don't be fooled with the basic exterior, this is a little gem in Hamden. As Indian is our families favorite, we could not resist stopping off to try this place. Meal was excellent as we're staff, prices very fair. Worth a visit

I now feel stupid having driven by this restaurant many times without trying it and making fun of the IHOP exterior. What a great surprise to find that you can get great authentic Indian food here at a good price. Easily the best dining experience...More

I go to Cumin at least once a month! Sometimes twice. The staff is very friendly and the service is great. I never wait long for my food. My favorite is the chicken korma or bangin bharta. Everything I eat there is always good.

This is the old IHOP in Hamden. I expected it to look like the old IHOP on the inside. It didn't. The decor was nice, tasteful and I thought authentic. I felt like I was in an Indian restaurant and not a house of pancakes....More

They have a really good buffet for lunch that's tasty and a great value. But it's only for lunch: we went there once for dinner and there was no buffet so we ordered a la carte. It was alright but disappointing, and much more expensive...More

The Indian lunch buffet is amazing. The tikka masala is phenomenal and they always have a great variety. The workers are so attentive and gracious. This is my favorite Indian place in the area.

Every year my mother takes me out to dinner to celebrate my birthday. This year we decided to try Cumin India. We decided to share an appetizer and got the vegetable samosa. It was very good and very filling, so I was glad we shared....More
