Great little restaurant serving authentic Indian cuisine – we have eaten here a few times and tried several dishes. They have all been excellent, spicy and flavour-packed. This time we ordered Jaipuri and the Chicken Biryani – both were fantastic. The service is always friendly and efficient, and food is served quickly. The decor is a bit dated, the chairs... More

We booked a table at opening time on a Saturday. The restaurant was COMPLETELY empty but the owner made a huge fuss that apparently we had booked a table for 2 instead of 4 (we booked a table for 4). He sat us at the very back of the restaurant in quite a bad seat given that he had the... More

This is our favourite curry restaurant in Rochester. Good service, lovely food. Particularly helpful when they saw me at the door on my crutches (I've a broken leg). Gave me a hand in through the door and put my crutches out of the way until I needed them. They do a set price on Monday - Thursday, so it makes... More

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 disappeared so quickly we didn't get to tell him! Considering they have so many waiters... 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 the food was surprisingly good and warrants a return visit under less pressured circumstances.

Always an old favorite when we are drinking in Rochester, we were accommodated upstairs and had a fine meal, the lamb shank being particularly good. Not cheap, but decent quality food.

Six of us visited this restaurant on Tuesday night, and as our first visit, were quite impressed with the spacious interior, along with the television on the wall playing Bollywood music videos. Sadly that is where it started to go down hill. We all had the Chondoni Sheek as starters, which were uninspired, cold and completely tasteless, unlike the description... More

I haven't been in the Cumin Club for a couple of years and was very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is great, lots of space, nicely decorated, very calm and clean. The food was well presented and tasted delicious. The portions are generous. There are some unusual and interesting dishes on the menu, which I really like. I loved that they... More
