The Cinnamon Club
All members of my party enjoyedAll members of my party enjoyed the relaxed feel of the restaurant. All complimented the food and enjoyed their meals which, incidentally, we found to be very good value for money. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. All in all the lunch experience was very enjoyable in a nice atmosphere and will definitely use the restaurant again both socially and for business meals.14/05/2013 00:00:00As usual excellent service,As usual excellent service, very interesting & unusual menu items, great ambiance, if a tad on the pricey side...13/05/2013 00:00:00Fantastic as alwaysHad a work lunch here for 12 people - food was brilliant as always, great service too.13/05/2013 00:00:00Predictably goodThe perfect mix of modern and Indian, with all of the subtlety of flavor and spice, but without high volume chilli loading. This place never disappoints. The entree scallop dish absolutely must not be missed.08/05/2013 00:00:00Fabulous as always. The foodFabulous as always. The food and wine recommendations are excellent08/05/2013 00:00:00DinnerExcellent a real treat and much better than the other top flight Indian restaurants07/05/2013 00:00:00Wonderful Birthday LunchI took my husband for a birthday lunch and we were thrilled with the service and outstanding food.
All of the staff at The Cinnamon Club ensured that his birthday was one to remeber and we were made to feel very special.
I would certainly recommend booking for Saturday lunchtime as it was fairly quiet and we had no problem with seating in the bar or restaurant.04/05/2013 00:00:00Great value pre-theatreLovely meal. The £22 pre-theatre menu was excellent and great value for money. Cocktail was also delicious. As we were eating early on, the ambiance was a little cold, but very enjoyable overall.04/05/2013 00:00:00Great FoodReally enjoyed this food was wonderful - I would recommend the Seabass! The fish was cooked beautifully. The only think I would say is that we were there in the evening, the lights were full strength and there was no background music so I found you could just hear other people talking the whole dinner. But aside from that a fantastic experience02/05/2013 00:00:00Lovely food and serviceGreat value going for the toptable offer. Have always found something I like on the menu using the offer and they always change what's on the menu so it's not always the same. One of my favourite restaurants.01/05/2013 00:00:00Never disappointsThe Cinnamon Club has always met or exceeded my expectations. The food and wine is of high quality and the ambience is perfect - it is one of those rare restaurants that you can hear yourself think! Highly recommended.29/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely Subtle FlavoursWonderfully balanced, light Indian food in a lovely setting. Attentive staff, excellent wine list.27/04/2013 00:00:00Fine and funTook an American friend and colleague for dinner here. I was hoping for showcase Indian cooking with first class service, but with a relaxed air. The Cinnamon Club delivered just that. We both thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Thanks.27/04/2013 00:00:00Cinnamon clubGreat food at the Cinamon Club, every mouthful was delicious. We had the tasting menu which was great, delicious, well presented, perfectly timed with the perfect wine accompaniments.27/04/2013 00:00:00Once we found it, having walkedOnce we found it, having walked past it once, we entered a beautiful building (the old library) buzzing with a great atmosphere & every table full. Very polite & attentive service by all, even by waiters not serving us if we walked past them (a bit overly attentive on continually topping up our wine glasses). It was a hard menu decision as the options were all enticing. Portions were generous, I found it hard to leave a bit of something so delicious but I could not finish it & sadly we had no room to try the wonderful sounding desserts! My husband has been here before and we would certainly recommend dining here. I expect you will always need to book.27/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent valueThe toptable offer provided excellent value. The spiced mackerel was particularly good.27/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent experienceFor the moment you walk, you are made to feel special. The attention you are afforded is exceptional.
There is a great choice on the menu. Our table of three wanted a set menu with a dish changed and the chef kindly obliged, with a blockbusting lamb dish to die for!
Be sure to have a nightcap in the bar downstairs. Great ambience there, even if some of the music is a bit iffy!27/04/2013 00:00:00StephFood and service were absolutely outstanding and comparable or superior to the finest contemporary indian restaurants worldwide.
The historic library building adds significantly to ambience26/04/2013 00:00:00FIve Very Satisfied Customers!Although I have eaten at The Cinnamon Club on many occasions (still my favourite place for a special breakfast), on Friday we celebrated by brother's 60th birthday. Everyone thought the food was excellent and definitely not a typical Indian restaurant! The staff were attentive as well as discreet and the ambience is lovely and wasn't too noisy even though all the tables were well occupied. My brother was surprised and delighted at the miniature ice cream cake with a candle that arrived with his coffee too! We had the 3 course + cocktail at £24 per head which was exceptional value.26/04/2013 00:00:00Great special occasion venueGreat value with the TopTable offer. Friendly attentive service and lovely setting. The food was a fresh change from what most people think of as Indian and of the highest standard and presentation. There was a lovely buzz to the atmosphere as it filled up along the evening and I look forward to returning for another special occasion in the future.25/04/2013 00:00:00Excellent, again!Came back on our wedding anniversary to the restaurant where we first met a few years ago. It continues to not disappoint. This fantastic indian/modern fusion is a taste sensation - absolutely worth every penny. They even brought us an extra little dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written on the plate - nice touch, "posh" restaurants can get way too stuffy about making sure their customers are relaxed and enjoying their meal. We had tasting menu with fine wine selection. Will certainly be back on a future special occasion.24/04/2013 00:00:00Outstanding food.We had a business dinner at the Cinnamon Club recently. The decor, ambience, service - all impeccable. Food quality great. Wasn't sure of the menu choices though to begin with. It's classified Indian I think - but the menu was a real mix. So was a bit nervous about what the food will taste like. But it turned out great. It's pricey of course. But that I knew before I went.23/04/2013 00:00:00Second time at The CinnamonSecond time at The Cinnamon Club. Food was great as usual and the service was very good too. The bar this time didn't quite have the same ambience, maybe because it was not as dimly lit - was far too bright for a bar :)22/04/2013 00:00:00A great experience as usual.A great experience as usual. Service - and the genuine interest in the two of us - outstanding and very classy22/04/2013 00:00:00Lovely setting to dine in,Lovely setting to dine in, the Cinnamon Club never fails to offer up good food and excellent service. The toptable deal makes dining here very good value for money, and a good taster for what the restaurant has to offer.
Only niggle would be that looking at the portions ordered a la carte compared to the set menu, there was a clear contrast (as comes with the price of the deal)20/04/2013 00:00:00Great place!The food was amazing and the venue is stunning. Great option for pre-theatre as they are very good at serving without delay between courses.20/04/2013 00:00:00Very lovely lunchI love this restaurant. The lunch we had was the lunch 3 course deal. The first two courses were fantastic, the dessert was not quite as good would give that a miss. The staff were great and I will definitely go again.18/04/2013 00:00:00ExcellentVery high quality food, with the set menu very reasonably priced.17/04/2013 00:00:00Great food, great serviceThis is the third time at Cinnamon Club and it never disappoints. I have a food allergy and my friend is a veggie; the restaurant was incredibly accommodating of our dietary requirements and didn't make us feel like second class citizens. Great set menu with lots of choices. The bar staff were also very friendly and made supreme cocktails. Not pretentious but classy and welcoming. I am looking forward to visit number four!11/04/2013 00:00:00Great food and great serviceWent for the toptable early diner option - good choice. Coupled with great service makes this restaurant a winner. Good value early dining option.09/04/2013 00:00:00Superb food and wineI have eaten here with clients but decided to take my family for mothers 60th birthday. The food was sensational, the flavours and combinations all mouthwatering. The sommelieur was polite, enthusiastic but not overbearing. Cinnamon Club has a traditional feel (an old library) but is not snooty. An all round fantastic experience.09/04/2013 00:00:00Quality food and serviceLevel of service from reception to bar to restaurant consistently excellent. The food is unusual and extremely tasty. Options available for those who don't like too much spice. A very high quality restaurant and good for looking out for famous political faces who often dine here.05/04/2013 00:00:00mussels, chicken and parfaitHad the lunchtime menu - 3 courses for £24 -good value.
Booze and bread push up the price obviously.
The entrance is understated - look for the little gold plaque next to the door.
Friendly reception from ladies at desk. Less so from waiter, but he did
loosen up through meal and is probably used to giving lots of discrete and attentive service.
Smile it suits you!
Superb starter and main. Ever so slightly disappointed
with dessert, because it was not flavoursome enough.
Overall not somewhere I'd usually go to, but a great experience and I recommend it.
Lots of older clientele wearing blue shirts. Wear trainers here for a laugh...05/04/2013 00:00:00great food, great service,great food, great service, we had the tasting menu many indian flavours used in new and subtle ways05/04/2013 00:00:00quite uniqueThis is Indian style cuisine like you will never have treated before! Every mouthful is a delight and the service quite exceptional, attentive but not invasive.04/04/2013 00:00:00Amazing curryI love the cinnamon Club and have dined there on many occassions. If I could reccommend it for anything it would be breakfast - the bombay scrambled eggs and spiced breads are amazing. This would be followed closely by a business lunch to spot politicians. I would also reccommend its sister restaurants, but for me the Club is the winner everytime.04/04/2013 00:00:00Imaginative Indian cuisineCinnamon Club offers extremely imaginative and delicious Indian food with unusual twists and flavour combinations - a million miles away from a high street curry house. It's at the upper end of the price spectrum, but the premium is worth it for the excellence of the dishes and the refined setting. A great place for a special occasion meal.02/04/2013 00:00:00wonderfulExcellent dinner. The food was inventive and delicious. Good value eating before 6.30pm30/03/2013 00:00:00Very comprehensive wine listVery comprehensive wine list and excellent "Special Menu". We particularly liked having a Sommelier Recommendation on the first page of the wine list. Great Library bar upstairs - nice choice of cocktails.30/03/2013 00:00:00Overall pleasantAn overall pleasant experience. Very good services. Nice settings. Food was good, though not outstanding. Some of the dishes was cleverly made.30/03/2013 00:00:00ImpressedWas advised that the experience would be good but had no impression of what the food would be like. On arrival we were treated efficiently with coats being taken and our table being ready. On going through the menu it all looked good so unable to choose, we went for the tasting menu with the premier wines (not premium). The food was excellent with each dish being a great fusion of English/India dishes/flavours. The wines went well with each of the 8 dishes (including the amuse bouche, the sorbet and 'pre-desert' we had 11 'dishes' in total, all of which were excellent. Not cheap coming at over £200 for the two of us (12.5% service charge was on top of this), but a really good way to find out what this excellent restaurant is all about.30/03/2013 00:00:00Delicious Gourmet Indian MealThis was our 2nd visit to Cinnamon Club and, as before, we had a delicious meal. We had an early booking so took advantage of the set 3 course meal with cocktail for £24. We both had seabass for main course and it was fantastic (perfect spice level, good sized portion - especially with our extra accompaniments). My husband had the venison kofta starter and honey cake with ginger ice cream dessert and enjoyed both. I had the aubergine starter and the lemon & pistachio dessert and both were lovely. Altogether, excellent value with great service (we weren't rushed, which we really appreciated). Will definitely be back again soon.30/03/2013 00:00:00Good food, grumpy waiterWe had an excellent meal and lovely cheesecake cocktails but took ages for someone to serve us and we were very hungry by time the food arrived!! Think we should have the option to order items on the other menu without having to order 6courses on it! Think sister restaurant cinnamon kitchen had similar menu and better service29/03/2013 00:00:00Cinnamon ClubStand out and unique flavours and spicing made this meal a memorable occasion. The service was excellent and attentive and we would not hesitate to return here. The unusual setting of a former library with a centre piece cinnamon tree added to the atmosphere.29/03/2013 00:00:00£25 for 3 course set menu 6 to 6.3Very subtle interesting spices used and food cooked to perfection.28/03/2013 00:00:00Never disappointedThe food continues to be outstanding even after so many years. The staff was very attentive; the service was very good.28/03/2013 00:00:00Had a fantastic meal at theHad a fantastic meal at the Cinnamon Club. The food was really well done.Though we were having the set menu as part of the London Restaurant Week, the choice and quality of food was still amazing.
The service was great, once we informed them that we had a theatre performance to go to afterwards, the food appeared without any delay. The attention to detail was no less and was piping hot everytime! We managed to go to the theatre very happy and in perfect timing, with the 3 course meal tucked in under 40 minutes !28/03/2013 00:00:00FantasticReally enjoyed the food and the services was fantastic - went for the express menu and everything was brought out to time without feeling rushed. Whilst the setting is impressive (former library), this restaurant is very formal during the week but this does not affect the impeccable service or ambiance. This would far suit a business lunch or special occasion but ultimately the food is truly outstanding!26/03/2013 00:00:00The Cinnamon ClubAbsolutelly delicious meal and excellent service!! My friends and I enjoyed lunch very much but we were quite surprised when we got a bill. On a menu did not show the price of 3 couses which 10 pounds more expencive than 2 courses!
We thought it was bit over the top. Anyway, of course I will go back there with my husband for the next time.26/03/2013 00:00:00BriliantAbsolutely amazing flavours for all the courses we had, both choosing different and sharing, as you do. A relaxed and friendly atmosphere, lovely welcoming staff and great food.23/03/2013 00:00:00
