Cinnamon Bazaar is the latest restaurant & cocktail bar from Vivek Singh's range of Cinnamon restaurants, situated in London’s Covent Garden.

We are a dining concept that mixes real Indian heritage with urban London, and our menus have been inspired by the marketplaces that lie on the trading routes that connect the empires of the Old World.

The cross-cultural dining experience embraces the democratic spirit of a bazaar, making us a real cultural melting pot – the perfect place to eat, drink, relax and celebrate.

Our private dining room, the Khari Baoli, is situated on the first floor above the hustle & bustle of the restaurant, and can accommodate 12 – 30 guests in this picturesque dining room, featuring its very own private bar. It is a real democratic place for people to meet, eat, drink, exchange ideas, work and celebrate.

Amazing food, the lamb kebab in particular was so so delicious. The service was great- Anne Maria was kind, welcoming and just went above and beyond to make sure we had a great visit.
I’ll definitely be returning!

We were on the point of changing our mind to visit Cinnamon Bazaar, thinking we don't want another curry but we are so glad we didn't because we didn't get another curry! We had small plates of deliciousness. Nothing too spicy, just mouthwatering, delightful food. The Crab Bonda was delicious and something we had never tried before. So pleased we didn't change our minds.

Price is too much for the portion sizes, service was slow and staff tried to get us in trouble when she threw away a card receipt making it seem like we didn’t pay fully and the mains were not good.

Starters were quite good albeit some dishes not spicy as the menu said. All but one of the main dishes were served cold / barely warm, despite us being the only table that had ordered as they’d only just opened. We sent most of it back - new dishes arrived about 10mins later which were only marginally warmer. Portion sizes were also quite tight for the price. Service was good generally. Overall very disappointing and won’t return.

I enjoyed the pre-theatre menu at Cinnamon Bazaar with a friend prior to attending the Garrick theatre. The location was ideal and the restaurant was a great find. The decor and atmosphere was perfect and we were sat upstairs in a fairly small and relaxed area. Service was quite prompt and friendly. The set menu offers good choice, portion sizes are great (2 main dishes come with rice, but 2 don't so you might need a side dish which is extra cost, but not expensive) and the food is quite simply delicious. My mouth was tingling with flavours afterwards!

Chaat items were good in both taste and portion size. Main course was truely dissapointing. This would be our first visit to a restaurant where the main course portion was smaller than starters. The chicken biryani was extremely overpriced for the taste and portion. Would not recommend at all.

Ambience was good. Happy with the quick service. However, food did not live up to our expectations. Portion sizes were very small. We ordered 5 naans with our curries out of which 3 were burnt. Mango lassi did not taste of mango. We found the food to be costly for average tasting Indian dishes.

My absolute favourite restaurant is Cinnamon Club in Westminster. Everything about it is superb - food, service, ambiance, cocktails... Cinnamon Bazaar provides much of this on a tighter budget. Great service, delicious cocktails and yummy food. Obviously as this is a cheaper venue the decor has to take a hit but this is perfect for a chilled evening out with friends or a fun first date.

Waiters were friendly but it took a long time for someone to take our order, then they brought our starters but forgot our drinks so we had to ask for them again. The place was not relaxing and the table we had was on the end of a row (tables very close together) so the waiters knocked my coat off my seat, so I put it away, then my cardigan was knocked off, then a waiter bumped my head with a tray! The food was tasty and it’s really the only reason I might go back.

I eat here whenever I am in London, and cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff are friendly, helpful, polite and efficient; nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is of a very high quality, exceptionally tasty and beautifully presented. The prices are very good value for money when you consider the quality of the service and food. If you are not sure what you want - just ask the staff and they will help you choose. If you try here I am sure you will enjoy it :)

We were at the restaurant for the first time. Based on the recommendation of the waiter we shared several dishes. We were a group of four and so it was possible to try a lot of different dishes. The food was quite spicy but very good and also the deserts were delicious. The service was very good, the waiters were around all the time and were very helpful and attentive.

You should try this swinging Indian restaurant: you will be amazed by the colors of the place first, and by the ones of the plates later. Beware of spiciness!

We (family w/2 kids) were really looking forward to this, and first impression was good. Informal ambience with music, staff was ok, and starters were very good.
However. When the mains came, only one out of four dishes was edible (the rogan josh Shepherd’s pie - bit blend, but fine). The rest were spicy beyond ...well. (And we do eat a lot of Indian food). So: 1) Nobody asked/warned us about the spice level beforehand. 2) as soon as the mains were on the table, the waiters were gone. Disappeared. Never came by to ask how the food was or if we needed anything else. 3) Finally, someone appeared (they had been at the bar) and started to clear the table. Didn’t wonder why most of the food was still on the plates, and when I subtly mentioned that it was way too hot and asked for some naan or joghurt, he bluntly said that the kitchen was about to close. I get that it’s been a long day and you want to end your shift, but come on: Don’t show customers that you really don’t give a damn like this. Don’t let people book a post-theatre table at 10 pm on a Friday if you’re not able to follow through on food and basic service. Our night ended on a low - ripped off for £160 (we went for a curry afterwards).
Sad thing is: The starters were really promising, and I suspect this place can whip up some pretty good food on a good day. But this made for our worst dining experience in London.
