I absolutely loved this place! The staff were great giving us recommendations and helped on picking the right wine to go with our food. The food was insane and delicious! The atmosphere and the place was stunning. They really made my best friends birthday one to remember. Can’t recommend this place enough!

The Cinnamon Club was recommended to me so I thought while down london I'll give it ago. My hubby and I chose to try the taster menu, £95 per person, yes some might think expensive but it was delicious, it was explained to us on what we were having and the venison was to die for. Outstanding, lovely place and will definitely come back, by the way, it's not the average curry house.

Nice food but all felt very chaotic getting in and out of the dining area and the bar felt incongruous with the historic setting of the restaurant. So many staff but everyone getting in everyone’s way.

Great food, was there for a business lunch and the service was shocking! I had to keep telling the waiters to take our orders, not attentive at all.

The food was absolutely delicious but I was disappointed by how long it was between us being seated and being served anything more than water. I think we waited more than an hour to order food. And whilst it did come quickly once ordered, it was a shame to sit so long without any food or wine - particularly as we were there for a celebration.

As ever, The Cinnamon Club did not disappoint. We went for a late lunch and tried the Tasting Menu. Quite expensive at £95 however it was well worth it and so we were happy with paying the price for a special occasion. In all around 7 courses. All were presented fabulously and tasted delicious, the spices enhancing the flavour of the food. We will certainly be back!

Excellent Indian food in a beautiful environment. Enjoyed the amazing combination of spice and food. Highly recommend it if you only have a short time in London or want to enjoy a tasteful meal.

An excellent restaurant, tucked very close to Big Ben, serving delicious food in a historic setting

Food: We went for the Late Dinner Menu (£38 per head), which comprised starter, main, dessert and a cinnamon bellini - excellent value, really good portions, and an explosion of delicate flavours.

Ambience: Quite hectic, and the only reason I gave a 3 star was because it was quite dark where we sat, and the open hall made the noise travel quite a lot - also the tables are quite wide meaning your partner feels far away.

Service; Very attentive waiter and head waiter, who was really polite and informative.

Value: Excellent value, as we had the set menu, added some extra bread, plus 2 cocktails from the bar, and the bill came to just over £50 per head!

Definitely recommend this place, and will be going back for sure!!

Very different, and very good. We plan to use at least one of the vouchers in January. Some things we thought could be better. The service was pretty slow. We both had breast of chicken. Excellent dish but not enough sauce left at the end to finish the rice and bread. More sauce on the plate please, or a small jug. Great breads but. They were shown in the side dishes section of the menu, but arrived with the first course. We didn't send them back but were surprised, and on the bill they appeared as bread starter. A starter course they were not. Can you put a name and/or number outside? if they are there it was too dark to see either and we walked straight past the restaurant. I have already recommended The Cinnamon Club already.

Good food marred by lamentable service. Too many diners on a Saturday night for the number of staff. We waited nearly 30 mins for one course of our tasting menu - clearly it had been forgotten as the pineapple granita had melted to a watery puddle by the time it reached us. Tasting menu is expensive and sadly the good quality, tasty dishes were spoiled by the long waits and "frosty" service.

Our meal was spoilt by the rude waiter who also got our order wrong! We ordered the vegetarian tasting menu but where given the meat one and when we pointed this out he didn’t even apologise.

What an amazing evening my wife and I had. The food as always was exquisite and the ambiance superb, lots of diners enjoying a varied and delicious menu. I opted for the Partridge as a starter and then the Monkfish for main with a variety of breads as a side.
It was nice to see Vivek Singh going around talking to dinners. You don't see that much these days in other restaurants.
We will be back as there are so many other Thai gs on the menu we want to try.

This is a tough one. And it's really a 3½ star review. The food is really good. The service is kind, but confused - different waiters ask the same questions - but they mean well. The price level is fine, but we got the smallest portion of rice that we had ever seen - only to be charged ekstra for more. It's annoying - charge a little more and be done with it. The main dining room is really nice - and again - the food really is good.

Lovely room but service and front of house a bit patchy on a busy Friday evening. The food was good but had evidently been sitting under the warming lamps for a while, waiting to be served. Overall a nice evening, but not quite worth the expense.

Was a lovely experience. Drink lounge was comfortable and felt exclusive. The food was all that was claimed. We had the shrimp crusted fish and lamb - wonderful. The deserts topped the evening off. Will go again. Staff were friendly and helpful yet not intrusive.

tasting menu at £95.00 was not value for money. Lamb and venison main course were very disappointing. Waiter needed to read the menu to explain what the dishes were; we were asked if we wanted drinks on a couple of occasions when we had already ordered.

NO zero or low alcohol beers is a big omission on the drinks menus which should not be the case these days. The food was awesome though. The octopus starter a particular highlight and black lentils are always such a good side order I wonder why more places don't do them like this place does. Plenty of game on the menu, and just to prove it's not an Indian restaurant there is steak on the menu for non-curry lovers. Great food, shame no zero alcohol lagers as I was driving and love a beer with my curry.

I booked cinnamon club to celebrate my graduation with 11 guests. We had a great time. Some of the group wasn’t too familiar with Indian food but everyone loved their meals. We had starters, mains and desserts and couldn’t fault a dish. The staff were extremely attentive and gave us helpful guidance on the menu. I’d definitely go back

Superb food and the set menu, which included a champagne cocktail, was excellent value. Service was attentive throughout. I had booked anticipating 'Jazz Sunday' but sadly there was no music. Despite the beautiful surroundings, the atmosphere was a little cold and lacked ambience. Tables for two are arranged very closely together and not conducive to a romantic evening! Paper napkins seemed out of place at this level of dining.
Visit for the food; you won't be disappointed.

Free, non-intrusive wifi would be appreciated. I find difficult to understand why for "free" wifi you need my birthdate, social network contact or anything else that is private and that you may leak either intentionnally or by accident.

Overall we really enjoyed it at the cinnamon club. We went for the tasting menu and most of the dishes were very good. I would say the service at times was a bit slow and it was perhaps a bit overpriced. But some of the dishes were quite incredible which to me is what really matters.

The staff were very welcoming and accommodating. The service was professional and efficient.

The food was outstanding and catered for all the dietary requirements of our group.

The bar staff were very knowledgeable in advising on alternative drinks when one was unavailable.

Seated in an ante - room not in main restaurant. Ante- room was , stark, soulless. No other diners in their at our time of arrival. Few arrived later and asked to be moved. Waiting staff gloomy. Food was excellent had the Christmas menu which was very tasty especially the mixed platter starter. Gave one of the manager some feedback about our experience- wasn’t listening.

Interesting setting.
Polite waiters.
Unhelpful maitre in explaining the dishes
Twisting of traditional food has never worked with me.
I prefer the tastes untouched, unmodernized and pure.
