We went to Cinnamon KitchenWe went to Cinnamon Kitchen for a business lunch. The food was outstanding. I would particularly recommend waiting for dessert, the milk chocolate mousse with banana & passion fruit sorbet is literally to die for.
For a lunch services and given that we ordered the express menu, the service was really really slow. We ended up eating two courses in just over 1.5 hours and we had empty glasses for probably an hour of that time.03/05/2013 00:00:00This was my first visit toThis was my first visit to the Cinnamon Kitchen. My friend and I had the special offer of two courses and a cardomom/ginger bellini for £19. We both chose the duck livers followed by the beef and were not disappointed - the flavours were amazing. The bellinis were so good we had 2 more each.
The service was very good and if I had two comments to make they would be that that we had to order our food by 7pm in order to qualify for the special offer which was not on the Top Table website or the menu provided and we were still eating our starters when the waiter arrived with our main courses. They were returned to the kitchen immediately and fresh portions served 15 minutes later.
I will definitely be returning.02/05/2013 00:00:00A lovely dinnerMy husband and I had dinner at the Cinnamon Kitchen on 29 Apr for our aniversary. We absolutely loved it - the food was lovely, the wine was excellent, the service was good - attentive without it being intrusive or overbearing. In particular the minced mutton chop was lovely and my husband is still talking about the banana and passion fruit ice cream.
It was definitely a night to remember!29/04/2013 00:00:00Great restaurant, amazing foodTwo of us ate here on a Saturday evening and had the 3 courses for £21 offer. We were welcomed warmly on arrival and the service was great the entire evening. We are both gluten free and the staff knew to expect that. They were knowledgeable about what we could have and answered our questions with a smile.
There is so much choice for gluten free customers and it's clearly marked on the menu. The duck livers were outstanding, as were the ribs and beef on the special offer menu.
We will definitely be back and highly recommend others to try it.27/04/2013 00:00:00gluten free friendlySuper choice of gluten free food on all courses.
They even made me my own GF entree whilst we were waiting for our starters.26/04/2013 00:00:00Great Service!I was so impressed with Cinnamon Kitchen, all of the waiting staff were very attentive and knowledgable. I was really impressed with the standard of service and the food was delicious. We were both really impressed with the meal. To top it off, a birthday cake was brought over to my husband (I didn't realise they would do this!!) - such a lovely touch to a great evening - thank you!!26/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely!We went for the set menu - 3 courses for £21 incl a bellini. Everything was lovely. The food was extremely tasty, well presented and satisfying. The service was very attentive. Would definitely go back.24/04/2013 00:00:00very good business/work venueGreat food and service. was a little quiet for a friday lunch time: but ideal to meet and chat without being overheard.19/04/2013 00:00:00ExcellentThe food here is delicious. While it's not the cheapest menu in the world, you definitely get what you pay for: attentive staff, delicious food beautifully and artistically presented, comfortable atmosphere, global wine selection, and well organised delivery. I will definitely be returning to this restaurant in the near future.18/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely food. Well presented.Lovely food. Well presented. Good atmosphere. Cocktails were delicious.11/04/2013 00:00:00Great service and good foodExcellent business dinner, with helpful and friendly service.
The restaurant is a bit noisy - hard, reflective surfaces give a fairly high ambient noise level, but this isn't intrusive.09/04/2013 00:00:00Taster meal with additionsWe went to the Cinnamon Kitchen after being given a taster meal through time out. We got to the bar and was served with some professionalism by Dominic who gave us our three cocktails. We were then given a couple of tasters of what to expect. We decided to eat in the restaurant and had a lovely meal, well looked after and certainly well presented. The venue was great and the ambience was excellent. Very modern Indian food but delicious with plenty of spices without being over the top. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and would certainly go again.06/04/2013 00:00:00Another outstanding meal.Another outstanding meal. We had the duck liver starter which was outstanding, for mains we once again had the ribs which are just perfectly cooked and deliciously flavoured and the second dish was a beef stir-fry, also very tasty. So can highly recommend if you like to experience a firework of delicious flavours. Ah, and the nice little free cocktail was delicious as well.05/04/2013 00:00:00Cinnamon Kitchen impresses again...Friends of mine from Glasgow (also known for very fine Indian food) were in London, so I recommended the Cinnamon Kitchen from several previous visits, both through business and privately. Anyway, this restaurant delivered yet again - great food, brilliant service and a relaxed atmosphere to enjoy both the food, wine and company that I was with. My friends were impressed. Job done.03/04/2013 00:00:00GREAT FOOD BUT..........This was our wedding anniversary treat, and boy, we were treated like royalty. The service was outstanding, the food was to die for and they made a little anniversary present for us which was that extra special little something that makes you remember them. However we thought the prices of the drinks are outrageous. We had one of the cheapest bottles of red wine, a gin and tonic, a glass of champagne, a bottle of water and 2 dessert wines( one of which we were a little bit duped into buying) and the drinks bill alone bill came to nearly £100! We did question the dessert wine and got a reduction. But if you are going out for a special occasion, the drinks will flow and they seem to be taking advantage of that. We doubt we would come again!30/03/2013 00:00:00Fantastic start to BirthdayMany thanks guys yet again for a superb meal and service yet again. Have had my bday lunch here for the last 5 years and they always fail to disappoint! Bday cake was beautiful and will also make good use of the new cinnamon kitchen cook book (best cinnamon book to date)...thanks Abdul!28/03/2013 00:00:00Great £25 menuBut not quite as good as the usual top table offer. Stir fired pepper beef was excellent as was the minced mutton cutlet.27/03/2013 00:00:00Two course menuLovely lamb to start followed by a delectable spicy fish dish for £15. Outstanding value!26/03/2013 00:00:00PerfectWe celebrated a birthday at Cinnamon Kitchen on a cold Saturday night. We received a lovely welcome and the service was very attentive all night, without being overbearing. The food was delicious, a selection of grilled meats was shared between three of us for a starter and we ordered mixed breads to accompany it, very enjoyable. We shared a few main courses and we all commented at how subtle the flavours were. We left full to the brim and would thoroughly recommend a meal at Cinnamon Kitchen .23/03/2013 00:00:00Set MealThe set meal was fantastic value and the food was excellent with very good service.23/03/2013 00:00:00Much better than last timeJust had a really really good lunch here - much better than Christmas lunch 2011. Delicious dumpling starter followed by superbly cooked haddock. Good service, very good toptable deal - I'd recommend to foodies.22/03/2013 00:00:00Cinnanmon Kitchen - always goodI've been to Cinnamon Kitchen now and each time I've always brought friends who have never been before.
We love the food and the innovative flavours and makes it so different to 'another Indian' restaurant.
The fish, the bread and the vension - amazing!
Always come out feeling full and extremeley satisfied.19/03/2013 00:00:00Good value for set menu mealsThe food was excellent as always, although my wife mentioned her haddock was a tad under-seasoned and under-spiced. The beef pepper fry went down a treat with my friends.16/03/2013 00:00:00Memories RevivalCinnamon Kitchen made me feel like I was in the treasure chest of my grandmothers kitchen, where anything was possible.I had the long Aubergine with seseme and peanuts- Aubergine will never be that humble accompaniment again. Accompaniments are the biggest difference at this Restuarant. Mince and peas to go with your meal?
It was like having the kind of options of an Indian kitchen at home.
My grandmother often would correct our English by calling on the lyrics from My Fair Lady and on this journey into the beautiful food she used to cool- my Fair Lady was invoked on first bite of the Profiteroles - I Could Have Danced, Danced, Danced all night...15/03/2013 00:00:00Best Restaurant for a nice WeekendWe chose the cinnamon kitchen for our short weekend trip from North Germany to London. A very good decision.....09/03/2013 00:00:00Set 3 course dinner 06/03/2013Had the 3 course set menu dinner. The starter and the mains were extraordinary but the dessert was bit of a let down. I ordered buffalo milk kulifi with this tangy mango sauce which spoilt it for me. The sorbet was ok, interesting flavours, which my partner ordered. What I must say is, the staff are lovely. Their customer service skills are top and they smiled all the way through. The ambience is ok for what it is, afterall it's a dinning place in Liverpool street and can not do anymore as it caters to a vast population of bankers and other office going people. But I presume something can still be done.06/03/2013 00:00:00Amazing!Four of us visited Cinnamon Kitchen at the end of February and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We had the 2 course set menu, which has 4 choices for each course. We decided to order all of them, and share them between us. In particular we enjoyed the ginger spiced paneer for the starter and the charred ribs for the main course, but all of the dishes were exceptional- the range of flavours and spices were perfect. Our menu also came with a sparkling wine cocktail which was delicious. The service was excellent, and I liked being able to see the kitchen from our table. This is the second of the Cinnamon restaurants that I've been too and I honestly couldn't say which one was my favourite!23/02/2013 00:00:00Nice foodWe went on a Friday evening and ordered the set menu. The food truly exceeds my expectations, in terms of both taste and look. We will definitely go back again this year.22/02/2013 00:00:00Very yummy mealMyself and a friend went to the Cinnamon Kitchen last Thursday and we had the two courses plus a glass of bubbly for £19 which was great value for money.
This is the third time I have eaten here and the food has always been fantastic!
The only thing I would say is that the drinks etc can be quite expensive, and even though we had the two course set menu we shared some bread with dips which cost an extra £8 which was pretty high but all the same rather tasty.
Would always recommend and will be back!21/02/2013 00:00:00This must be about the 20thThis must be about the 20th time I've been because the food is just so good. The toptable offer is a delight every time. Once again I went for the ribs which are out of this world, preceded by the Chicken starter, another delightful medley of flavours. Can highly recommend !18/02/2013 00:00:00Great food for a birthdayGreat food for a birthday blow out and had a real sense of occasion and theatre. Pricey, but clearly you get what you pay for and so save up those pennies and treat yourself...or get someone to treat you!13/02/2013 00:00:00Still tastyBeen a few times recently and the food is always interesting. I like places where I would find it difficult to re-create the dishes back at home. The service was attentive, ambience is sort of city gent type with a few couples on a mid-week night. The dessert was surprisingly good (cinnamon ice cream), they do some nice fish dishes with delicate spices so as not to destroy the flavour.12/02/2013 00:00:00for fiance bday...with a group of friends. excellent service and dare i say it - worth the price!
we even got complimentary dhokra - which were actually very nicely made.
appreciate the food is overpriced for a reason - but still had a nice experience.
would recommend for special occasions...!09/02/2013 00:00:00Cinnamon KitchenVisited with my wife food was gorgeous. Felt the set menu was rather limited so chose from the a la carte and although expensive, worth it. The bar used to have happy hours they say although now cancelled they
have reduced the price of drinks! Didn't notice it dread to have paid the price before!30/01/2013 00:00:00Thoroughly enjoyableA great deal with great food. The Cinnamon Kitchen was a refreshing change from a standard Indian restaurant. The food was fantastic and tasted very fresh.29/01/2013 16:00:00Modern and creative!I can sum up our second trip to CK by asking a question -- Why can't we have Indian restaurants like this in the U.S.? Yes, there is Rasika in Washington and Tashan in Philadelphia, but that's it! CK is fantastic in every respect. Can't wait to return.27/01/2013 16:00:00Anniversary dinnerWe went on a Monday evening and found the restaurant relaxed and the staff welcoming and friendly. We had the tasting menu and found the dishes very interesting and delicious. We especially liked the green spiced partridge. The accompanying wines complimented each dish very well. As it was our anniversary we were given a lovely decorated desert . Meeting Vivek Singh and Abdul Yaseen made the whole experience very special, I would certainly recommend Cinnamon Kitchen to friends and family and would definitely like to dine there again.27/01/2013 16:00:00Although parking is bit difficultAlthough parking is bit difficult and surround area is very quite and some what scarey, once in the pavillon , its lovely. the resturant is well laid out and very comfortable. the decor is excellent . we had fish for starters which was amazing and chicken for main. the chciken was very well cooked as it came of the bone very easily. although expensive, huge savings on topable.25/01/2013 16:00:00Excellent Modern IndianSuper interesting food - we were a family party of five and ate early evening on a weekday. Service was friendly and our set menu meal including a winter cocktail was excellent.22/01/2013 16:00:00The foot and the atmosphereThe foot and the atmosphere were great! The General Manager and the waiters were very nice and very polite. I would definitely recommend such restaurant.17/01/2013 16:00:00Worldwide FavoriteI keep telling my foodie friends that this is my favorite restaurant in the world. In fact, I just travel 3500 miles to dine there for my birthday. Of course, it was part of a trip to the UK but I can't explain how excited I was to be spending my birthday there.
And they didn't disappoint. The first standout point was our seating. Within a few moments of serving us a special birthday cocktail, the neighboring table grew a little boisterous. Before we could complain the maitre'd whisked us away to another table.
We started with a neuf de pape and the lobster soup/pom poms. Outstanding!
Main course was prawns for my wife and the red deer for me. Just plain WOW.
Make sure you eat here.15/01/2013 16:00:00TT set menu is great valueI have visited Cinnamon Kitchen on a number of occasions but this was the first time my friend had been. The Top Table set menu is not automatically provided but came when requested. It represents fantastic value and has a good range of options, we still had the benefit of amuse bouches and palate cleansing sorbet after the main course. We ordered their bread basket with chutneys which were all wonderful. Will certainly return.15/01/2013 00:00:00Highly recommendedThe Cinnamon Kitchen turned was an excellent choice for catching up with an old friend. The dishes were all perfectly spiced and the kentish lamb perfectly cooked.Price wise it was reasonable for the quality.14/01/2013 16:00:00Food was delicous and serviceFood was delicous and service impeccable. Highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be returning.11/01/2013 16:00:00Cinnamon is a wonderful spice!!Great food, good setting, service has a little room for improvement as it was a little hit and miss. This didn't detract much from the whole experience, however, and I will be going again. The lamb main course gas to be tried to be believed, simply outstanding!!! :-)09/01/2013 16:00:00Nice ambiance and great food!Lovely venue, food was delicious..not your typical curry house!!! Service was attentive and polite...great atmosphere.. would definitely book again.08/01/2013 16:00:00Indian with a twistCame here to meet an old friend, chose Cinnamon Kitchen as I like Indian and thought it sounded interesting.
Food was top quality
- platter of starters was really appetising and varied. Staff accommodated allergy issues and switched constituents of the platter around a bit, which was really helpful
- main course (lamb) was beautifully cooked and had the right mix of spiciness and herbs.
Stuck to beer with the meal, they had an excellent new craft beer in which I really enjoyed.
Not a romantic venue really, too light and open, but good service, excellent food makes this a great place to eat out.08/01/2013 16:00:00Really enjoyed our visit toReally enjoyed our visit to Cinammon Kitchen. There were six of us with two vegetarians and we managed to pull together a menu that included them with good tasty fare. Love the fresh, light flavours compared with most traditional high street indian curry houses.03/01/2013 16:00:00Eaten here before and theEaten here before and the second experience was as good as the first - consistency . Atmosphere is relaxed but suits business as well as social occasions. Staff and service is very friendly and genuine. What can I say about the food - fantastic .
Pre starter of lentil cakes so tasty - venison kebab well spiced , tilapia fish really delicate but spiced perfectly . Mackerel and chicken main courses could not be faulted . Unfortunately not enough time to try deserts - good reason to return but not needed!02/01/2013 16:00:00Amazing food and service wasAmazing food and service was very good. Restaurant very busy but service personalized. Would use again and recommend it to others.30/12/2012 16:00:00
