The food was delicious. I particularly enjoyed the range of dips that accompanied the poppadoms and the coconut ice cream. Our server was also very attentive.
Excellent Indian with a varied menu. All old favourites there, alongside Southern Indian dishes with some excellent fish options. Staff really friendly and helpful. Thoroughly recommended.
Courteous and friendly service, imaginative menu and delicious food. We hadn't been here for a couple of years but if anything it's even better than before.
We are regular visitors to Quimins .The food is always delicious and the service is friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend a visit here.
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 :-)
The food was as always delicious, and promptly delivered despite it being very busy with a few parties arriving at the same time. Our only reservations were that it was very noisy, but actually when we mentioned this the waiter immediately (and very politely) asked one very noisy table to lower their voices - which they did. We will definitely keep going there, but maybe not on a Saturday night!
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.
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.
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!
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.
