Useful information


Located on the main drag of Milwaukee Avenue, this cozy spot showcases its Nepali heritage and knowledge of Indian specialties via its cooking. While fans of the sub-continent love Cumin for its clean, modern surrounds, linen-lined tables struggle to contain the myriad plates that pile up during the lunchtime buffet. Paintings of mountain scenes decorate crimson-red walls and prep diners for flavorful food from the Himalayan frontier. This menu has most of the usual suspects, but get gnawing on chicken momos (dumplings) accompanied by a tomato dipping sauce laced with turmeric, garlic, and chili powder. Soak up pieces of garlic naan in an intensely spiced lamb vindaloo stocked with soft potatoes. Cool down over a light and refreshing Taj Mahal lager. - MICHELIN guide inspectors
