    Who are the hospitable forces behind the restaurant?
    Shelley and Sunny Anand opened up The Cumin, following in the footsteps of their family catering business. The earlier Anands had migrated to the UK from Nairobi, Kenya in 1975. In addition to Nottingham, the family has restaurants in Middlesex, Wembley and Ilford.

    Describe The Cumin’s menu.
    The restaurant specialises in authentic Indian cuisine yet Chef Shelley Anand has designed a menu to cater to all tastes. With the business coming into its sixth year, diners can continue to experience the diverse North Indian and Punjabi cuisine on offer.

    Is dining at lunch different from the evening?
    Lunch features a tapas-style experience or a Thali platter. ‘Thali’ means plate and is a selection of different dishes, usually served in small bowls on a round tray with multiple compartments.

    What is it like in the restaurant?
    The Cumin is conveniently located in the city centre, and spans two floors. The first floor offers more privacy and is equipped for private functions. The venue caters to a relaxed and comfortable dining experience.
