Indian cuisine consists of a variety of regional and traditional cuisines native to the Indian subcontinent. Given the diversity in soil, climate, culture, ethnic groups, and occupations, these cuisines vary substantially and use locally available spices, herbs, vegetables, and fruits.
Our Customer Reviews
This was the first time we had visited Cumin, despite living around the area for more than a decade. We had been looking for an Indian restaurant and decided to make a booking.
Inside, Cumin is simple, nice and open, and shares space with Sforno - owned by the same people.
The food was prepared in good time and the spices and aromas were exactly what we had been seeking in a local Indian restaurant. Lots of flavour and spices, and the dumpling dessert in a rose syrup was excellent.
This is a great venue for those who fancy some Indian flavours, or those who feel like burgers, pasta, and other pub grub from neighbouring Sforno.
The owner was pleasant and made us feel welcome. He was thankful for our booking and was certainly a key part of our positive experience.
We'll definitely be coming back!
Amazing sea food. Closest to what I have tasted growing up in India. We were a group of 16 and preordered so had no issues with wait times. Finally an authentic Indian restaurant in New Zealand. Try out the crab curry and fried fish, just amazing!!
