Went as a party of 30 plus as part of a stag do. The staff coped reasonably well with such a large party and were friendly. Although the meal took an overly long time (presumably because of the size of the group) the quality of the food was surprisingly good and warrants a return visit under less pressured circumstances.

Always an old favorite when we are drinking in Rochester, we were accommodated upstairs and had a fine meal, the lamb shank being particularly good. Not cheap, but decent quality food.

Six of us visited this restaurant on Tuesday night, and as our first visit, were quite impressed with the spacious interior, along with the television on the wall playing Bollywood music videos. Sadly that is where it started to go down hill. We all had the Chondoni Sheek as starters, which were uninspired, cold and completely tasteless, unlike the description... More

I haven't been in the Cumin Club for a couple of years and was very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is great, lots of space, nicely decorated, very calm and clean. The food was well presented and tasted delicious. The portions are generous. There are some unusual and interesting dishes on the menu, which I really like. I loved that they... More

The guys in the Cumin club never disappoint. Great menu, great food and great service. My particular favourites are the biryanis and madras dishes but to be honest, you really can't go wrong. Great range of veggi dishes too.

I love it at the cumin club, my husband and I have been twice now and both times were flawless on service and food. although there could be a better range of drinks, the food makes up for it, easily the best saag paneer and chicken korma I have ever had! thank you for a lovely dinner!

Had a lovely meal here with friends. A lovely clean fresh restaurant with good friendly staff. The food was of a high standard & well served. A big variety of choice on the menu. Will defiantly visit again. Nothing was too much trouble.

Popped in for a quick curry on a Saturday night and were lucky to get a table as it was busy. Good service and decent menu, the king prawn dish we had was unusual and excellent (if a little expensive at £13ish) but my staple fave of lamb dhansak was a little disappointing. Heard rave reviews from friends who wouldn't... More

I have used this restaurant many, many times over the years and it never fails to impress. My most recent visit was no exception 1st class food, perfectly cooked and delicately spiced and flavoured with no single dominant flavour, efficient and most friendly service, and excellent value for the quality of good you receive. Drinks are excellent with a good... More
