I have eaten here many times, in groups ranging from two to eight, and it is always excellent - great food, friendly service. Totally reliable.
Food is really flavourful. All 4 of us said it was the best Indian meal we'd had in a long time. Staff are helpful and attentive. Restaurant has a bright contempory feel. Alll round an excellent experience
Chicken liver starter was wonderful! The main courses were great and the banana fritter rounded things off nicely!
Great food, great service,. great atmosphere. What more can you ask. As long as you like Indian cuisine you won't go far wrong for a good night out.
We have been to Qumins quite a few times over a few years and it never disappointed us. The food is amazing, there are lots of vegetarian and even vegan options. If you ask for veggie dishes specially made without butter and dairy they are happy to do it. A small suggestion I could make is that it would be nice to have more options of home-made indian desserts (even vegan ones!) instead of mainly pre-made ones, but that doesn't change my rating at all, the staff is very friendly and the food is really excellent. I have sent friends there too and they were very happy as well. We will go back and we definitely recommend it.
My guest and I started our meal with the usual poppadoms and pickles and ordered a chicken dish each, two types of rice and a garlic naan. The waiter came to check twice if we had finished the poppadoms. I got the distinct impression that he was getting anxious. However, when he cleared the plates away, our main course was on the table almost immediately. Disappointingly, it was almost cold. Had it been sitting in the kitchen ready to be served. The manager offered to reheat it for us, which was already on our plates. Presumably it was reheated (well almost) by microwaving. My friend and I really couldn't be bothered to complain again. The waited seemed to be more interested in a party of eight people.... We ate, paid the bill and left after a very disappointing evening which we had looked forward to for several weeks. Unfortunately for them, we will not be returning.
An excellent place, with some brilliant dishes I have not seen elsewhere, and a knowledgable and flexible staff. I went there with several people whose dietary requirements I did not fully know, including two vegetarians and another person violently allergic to other ingredients. We got what we ordered, with some excellent adjustments, and everyone left happy. The best Indian in Oxford: the only reason not to go is that my friends and I will be there ...
The restaurant was fully booked and had a great atmosphere. The staff were helpful when ordering the food - full of suggestions depending on level of spice - and made great suggestions when ordering wine. The food we well presented and full of flavour - the coconut rice was an absolute winner! We didn't order pudding as we were too full but will go back to try other time.
Nice place...convenient to parking. Food was good but not great in my view. I found it a bit bland. The meats were well cooked although I found both the chicken tikka and our lamb chop starter to be a bit dry and the lamb chop was quite tough. The goan fish currey (with cod) was a bit bland as was the lamb shank chef speciality (name escapes me). Overall, I would say that the restaurant is very nice and the service was attentive for the most part. The decor is modern and very pleasant so I will certainly give it one more try!
We liked the modern interior and were immediately greeted and shown to our table. The menu had some unusual dishes and I loved the chicken livers! Unfortunately the sardine starter had sold out. All the main courses were very good although I wasn't keen on the chef's specialty, lamb korma, on the bone, it was a bit greasy. The rest though, very tasty. Definitely recommend it, nice ambience and lots of diners.
