My wife and I really enjoyed our date night Great food great staff Recommending it to anyone Will definitely go back for more and they do takebaways
Delicious! The vegetarian food was excellent, I didn't try the meat and fish based ones but my friends really enjoy them. The service was friendly and efficient. I recommend it.
Went for dinner here last week, the food was absolutely delicious Indian food and the staff were very friendly and helpful, would come back and would recommend!
This was the second time I have been to this restaurant and the food is just excellent and so is the service , I would probably rate this restaurant as the best Indian in Oxford.
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.
At the detriment of making it more difficult to book a table at my favourite restaurant, I owe them nothing less than a hearty commendation. Their food and service is consistently good, with lots of variety if you fancy deviating from the standard Indian restaurant fare, and the quality of ingredients and flavours of the dishes are just great!
Food was pretty good, although one item in our order was wrong and we had to wait while the correct item was cooked. Service was ok, but a little patchy: the waiting staff could be more apparent, rather than standing out of sight behind bar. Some innovative approaches to re-imagining traditional curry house dishes. Presentation was very good, but kulfi on a warm plate is never a great idea - chill the dish for ice cream so it isn't a race to eat it before it melts :-)
This was lovely, tasty and innovative food in a modern setting. Main dishes are cooked to order, so that would explain the extended wait. Portions were rather small - just 3 large cubes of fish in one dish; and another where the modest meat portion was "swimming" in sauce. I will give it another go to see if these issues are just one-offs though.
It was OK. At least the food did not taste off which is often the case in Indian restaurants. However, no one goes to eat out in winter in order to sit in the cold. How about turning the radiators on?I know it can get warm later but it was early in the evening. Also, one of the waiters was friendly ,the other was not.We do not pay good money for this lack of warmth more ways than one. Nice ,clean decor. Reasonable food. Good to be open on New Year's Day. More warmth, both in temperature and humanity please!
Outstanding food and impeccable service, Qumins has never failed to deliver. This visit I took two friends who had never been and both were blown away by the experience. The food recommendations were spot on, along with a couple of lovely bottles of wine. The best Indian restaurant in Oxford.
My first experience of this delicious restaurant, highly recommended by friends and now by me too! The food was delicious - both the carnivores and vegetarians in our party were impressed, and we had our first taste of an Indian White wine. Will definitely be back!
The food was absolutely lovely. Restaurant is very nice. My only complaint was we felt rushed, we don't eat out often together and was a shame we felt we couldn't enjoy it as much as we could have as felt they wanted us gone. Table booked for 6 we were out by 7:10pm and that was with starters too hardly time for our food to go down.
Very attentive, efficient service, can't knock it. Most of our meals were lovely, I had the Bhindi Ghost for the first time and it was delicious. The only disappointment was my veggie wife had the Gobi Mutter and while the menu description is accurate, it was very much like a side dish rather than a main - no sauce, quite plain. Otherwise highly recommended.
Can't fault this restaurant for food. Great menu choice, good quality and best tasting curries in the city in my opinion. Lovely modern decor. If I had to criticise, I think it would be that the tables for two are a little small, especially if you order a few side dishes.
Husband loves the tom yum soup and the restaurant kindly made me a starter no longer on the menu when requested. Delicious vegetarian main meals. Spinach dhal very salty and inedible: replaced within 5 mins when we raised and not charged for. Passion-fruit sorbet really refreshing. My favourite xx
Having booked previously for our party of 4, we found the staff very helpful, the service was quick but we were not hurried between courses, the atmosphere was pleasant and the food was excellent. ..what more could you ask for?
A very warm welcome was given to us when we arrived. Lovely window table which was nice to watch the world go by as we enjoyed our very taste meal!! . Will be going back again soon to try somemore of the tastie menu.
Wonderful cooking, delightful, friendly service. Altogether a perfect evening. And this is what we always find at Qumins. It is our favourite Oxford restaurant. Also there is an excellent car park behind the shops opposite.
Fantastic food and great service. Getting a table for four on the same day was great. Menu is varied and offers good choices for all parts of the meal. In all a great experience.
Nice food although was a little bit lacklustre. I guess I was expecting a hearty, saucy dish, and I wouldn't say the food was particularly hearty or saucy. Clean and tidy restaurant. Waiters helpful although their understanding of English wasn't great and it was a bit hard to communicate with them.
The food was excellent, there was good advice about selection of dishes, the outside seating was just what we wanted, and the whole experience was full of quiet enjoyment. They are very hospitable.
The food was fantastic and menu advice was much appreciated; spot on. The service was also great. We called ahead to alter our booking time and the staff we very amenable; excellent evening.
We had a late dinner (8:30) on a weeknight, after going to a film nearby. The food was excellent and the service very attentive. I had a lamb dish and my husband ordered sea bream, which we don't often have at home. Both were very tasty.
As always the food is fantastic cannot fault it . Normally same can be said for the service unfortunately on this particular evening we were kept waiting rather a long time to place our order :(
Staff were friendly and service was fantastic. The food wasn't as described on the menu however so was a bit disappointing. For example, I ordered a 3* hot madras but it wasn't spicy at all. Maybe I should try the vindaloo next time!
Very good service and fantastic food. I don't think I have ever had better Indian food and I loved in Dubai... Well done guys keep the quality up!
The staff are what made the night,excellent service.comfy seating and again great service from all members of staff,they could not do enough for us on my sisters birthday.
Excellent food and service - thoroughly recommended. We wanted somewhere we could feel like our group had a special night - with an atmosphere and good quality Indian food. Qumins exceeded our expectations
Our food was excellent and we were impressived with the friendly and attentive service. We all agreed that if we are back in Oxford, we'd re-visit Qumins!
Excellent, subtle food and quick, attentive service. Would recommend it as one of, if not the best Indian restaurant in Oxford. Good selection of wines and beers
This is our favourite Indian restaurant in Oxford. The food is always so fresh tasting and the service always friendly and efficient. Will be going again.
A lovely little place on St Clement's road. It provides different and better food than your average curry house. Not your standard unidentifiable curry sauce. Lovely staff. Definitely would go again.
Delicious food. Mohili was scummy, garlic naan crisp but soft. Son loved bombay potatoes! Great n friendly service. Reasonable prices. Welcoming decor. Def going back!!
Great food and service as always :) excellent value for money .., and if you want something that's not on the menu just ask ... Will be returning very soon
Excellent food, and the owner is extremely hospitable. The koliji puri starter is particularly good, and not one widely seen elsewhere. Splendid value all round.
Beautiful curry - nicest one I've had in a long time....surely the best in Oxford? Staff were very friendly and helpful - we shall return!
Really lovely with tastey food. The staff are really attentive and great choice for all. Have visited many times and never been disappointed. The special was delicious thank you.
Food was delicious and the waiters very friendly. The time span between ordering and eating was short, and the price more than acceptable. A clear recommendation for this restaurant.
A very nice meal and environment with friendly service. Despite one of our party arriving late felt no pressure to order or move on. Would definitely come back.
Fresh modern Indian food fish dishes worth a try,nice atmosphere a mile away from the run of the mill oily dishes served in the majority of establishments.
The atmosphere was lovely, staff were friendly, service was (even though it was a friday evening) and the food was great and well priced. Would definitely recommend.
The food as usual was excellent and the service very good. As it was Bank holiday the restaurant was busy and very full and rather noisy.
Great food as ever, cannot be faulted. The service wasn't up to the usual standard, but everyone is allowed their off days! I'll still go again.
Neighborhood restaurant that offers wonderfully delicious food, pleasant atmosphere, and kind service, though the staff can tend to be a bit inattentive at busy times.
Great food, but a little expensive. Lamb chop tandoori very good, so was biriyani. Service also very good and the atmosphere very lively and fun.
