More about Raavi's Cumin, Crows Nest

The executive chef and owner of Raavi’s Cumin, Ravi Gandhi, is consistently ranked among India’s top twenty cuisine experts, harking from a long line of restaurateurs and heading up all manner of hospitality associations and initiatives. Thank goodness, then, for Australia’s open-armed immigration policy, because now Sydney’s Crows Nest is Ravi’s home and home to his flagship restaurant Raavi’s Cumin! Those looking for an Indian eatery that isn’t run-of-the-mill and a kitchen that respects the traditions and philosophy of South Asian cooking, are advised to book a table at this Burlington Street restaurant without delay.

Raavi’s Cumin emphasises, as the name suggests, the humble cumin seed. Integral to Indian cookery, this unassuming spice lends its penetrating pepper and citrus bite to gravies and grills, rice, vegetables, and bread. A typical Indian and South Asian spice, a renowned digestif and purportedly anti-carcinogenic, cumin symbolises this Sydney Indian restaurant’s dedication to South Asia’s diverse regional cuisines and the healthful qualities of Indian cookery, something that often seems counterintuitive to the uninitiated. Showered with accolades that often suggest Raavi’s Cumin is one of Sydney’s best Indian restaurants, this Burlington Street, Crows Nest hotspot is a destination for the city’s discerning diners.

The restaurant owner & staff were very attentive to the requirements of our table of 8 which included an 18 month baby and a gluten free child. We had the banquet & requested spicy. Got exactly what we wanted. Recommended to all

The service was friendly and efficient. The food was delicious. We had somosa for entree, three curry dishes, lamb, dal and chicken with some Naan bread all for only $30 per head. We would definitely go back to this Indian restaurant. Convenient location too
