The Cumin


The Anand family has a long & successful history of catering, originating from the Punjab, North India, the family migrating to East Africa. They came to the UK in 1975 & have been in the catering business ever since. Their first restaurant in the UK was The Brilliant, followed by Madhu’s, both in Middlesex. The Anand family brought their catering to Nottingham nearly 30 years ago & the Anand brothers Sunny & Shelley, opened their own restaurant The Cumin.

Opened in 2007, the Cumin is situated just a stone’s throw from the Market Square and the castle. The restaurant offers a true taste of North Indian and Punjabi Cuisine.

The restaurant is split over two floors. Our first floor offers more privacy from the road and is the ideal venue for private and corporate functions, with a full sound system, which you or a Dj can plug into.

The Cumin’s attained many awards over the years, Best Newcomer, Best in Midlands by Pat Chapman & the Cobra Guide for 2013 - 2014, shortlisted for the British Curry Awards 2014-2015 and receiving 5 star Metro rating are just a few. Most recently The Cumin was ranked in the top 20 best Indian restaurants in the UK in 2016 by the customers of Open Table.

These awards come from amazing cuisine, service & passion for the restaurant.  Sunny who looks after front of house ensures all his guests are looked after, while our award winning executive chef Shelley brings the spices, aroma & flavours of North Indian Punjabi cuisine with a twist of his own skills & flare.


The Brilliant cookbook is now here! Celebrity Chef Dipna Anand of The Brilliant Restaurant in Southall presents 'Beyond Brilliant'. The cookbook you have all been waiting for!

The Cumin is based around the traditional Indian restaurant with a touch of modern decor to create a relaxed and comfortable dining environment. The restaurant capacity is 74 covers over two floors, 20 on the ground and 54 on the first floor. Our first floor restaurant offers more privacy from the road and is an ideal venue for private functions, with a full sound system into which you are welcome to plug in your own music or allow us to arrange a DJ.

Owner and Executive Chef Shelley has created a menu which caters for all tastes, with his Northern Indian Punjabi style, he brings the flavours of India to your palette. With Shelley's passion for creative cooking, our menu is always evolving from healthier options to new seasonal ingredients.  This passion has won us numerous awards, such as Top 100 best restaurants in the UK, 5 stars rating from Metro and very recently the Best in the Midlands award for 2014, awarded by Pat Chapman's Cobra Good Curry Guide. This prestigious award has led us to take our business to new heights.  Come and experience why we are the best in the Midlands.
