Cinnamon Culture is a fine Indian dining restaurant. It is the perfect setting in which to sample contemporary Indian cookery.
Here you’ll taste tantalising homemade chutneys, delve into stunning starters and enjoy the kitchen’s breathtakingly creative plated main dishes, created with one eye on the traditional and another very much on current and up and coming trends. Unusually for an Indian restaurant, Cinnamon Culture places much of its focus on its dessert menu, allowing for further inventiveness in twisting together Eastern and Western ideas.

    We went as a family celebrating Father’s Day and ended up loving everything there, from super yummy food&amp;drinks to a top notch service, right ambience was creating a very cosy atmosphere so 2 and 1/2 hours were easily spent. Made a dad’s day No music sounded like good music as we could talk in peace.

    We went there on Father's Day, where a special menu has been made available. The staff are very attentive and have been very sympathetic since the beginning having also provided some advice of the several options. The food is outstanding really worth a visit. The price is in line with the quality of the food. Will definitely go there again and try other menu options.

    Wide choice of starters and mains. Food came promptly ( we did arrive at the start of the evening sitting ) and was well presented. Excellent quality and piping hot where appropriate. If anything, the portions were rather too big for us ! Slight negative ... cocktails rather expensive although pint of Cobra at £6.75 not too bad for a restaurant of this quality. All in all a very pleasant dining experiance.

    Cinnamon Culture arrived in the neighbourhood a couple of months ago and we decided to go there for my wife's birthday. The ambience is good, if a little dark, the menu diverse, the food imaginative and well presented, and the service attentive. We did spend a little more than we expected, but for the quality of the experience it was comparable to other local restaurants of the same calibre. We will be back.

    The food was nice with some interesting choices. The duck was good but fat was insuffiently rendered. This is not an inexpensive restaurant but as always it depends on one's choices of food and drink. The service was friendly and organised. Definitely the worst thing is the cacophony of sound generated by the diners. It is not the diners' fault of course. This building just has really bad acoustics and the chatter from tables reverberates around. The place has always been that way when it was inhabited by other restaurants. On a busy Saturday night, make sure you are sitting right next to the person you most wish to chat to as it is quite difficult to be heard from the opposite side of the table.

    Excellent meal. Certainly different to your average Indian. Very tasty with unusual flavours. Can recommend the lamb biryani in a clay pot. Appeared to have several veggie and vegan options. Very attentive staff. New restaurant has been decorated very tastefully. First visit but will be returning soon.

    Lovely spicy food and great drinks, quite expensive but value for money okay because of the quality. Service dropped off a bit once we’d had our mains. For the 2nd visit in a row, we were up for dessert, but by the time staff came past the table, we’d changed our minds.

    We had only heard good things about this restaurant so we were excited to spend an evening there with friends to celebratea birthday. The evening started off well, with waiters frequently at our table taking our orders. A big positive was the food. Delicious! Not your usual menu, definitely a step up. Not cheap, but neither mega expensive. However, we definitely wouldn't return at the weekend. The restaurant was full - and the level of noise was deafening. We were a small party of 4 and we could hardly hear each other across the table, even with raised voices! Nonetheless, we tried to enjoy the evening without negativity. However, as soon as the tables with the larger parties left, the good service we'd enjoyed up to that point, came to an abrupt halt! We were waiting to order desserts, coffees, etc but we struggled to catch anyone's attention. Basically, the majority of staff were exiting the restaurant, either for a break or because they'd finished for the evening. Hence, the service basically came to an abrupt halt. It was as if the smaller parties, of which there were still a few, were of little significance. What a disappointing ending to what could, and should, have been a very enjoyable evening. Will we return? Probably at some point, but definitely not at the weekend!

    Everything was 5 stars, amazing… I only gave 4 stars for service because it felt they was being to nice… to many people coming to the table asking is everything ok, do we need anything etc etc… but it was still an amazing service & I’d still pick to nice over not nice any day. I 100% recommend people visit

    Could be great but needs work and improvement. Service is disorganised with confusion over both drinks and food orders. Sometimes we had two staff ask us re food orders but later we had to find a staff member to order puddings. Very loud in the restaurant so difficult to hear our friends or the staff clearly. Acoustics need to be improved. Soft shell crab, lamb chops and the sea bass were lovely but be careful with your food choices if you don’t like your food too spicy.

    Service was very slow. We had to ask to order our food. Portions of food especially the side dishes were very small for the price. Meal was £112 for starters, main and 2 alcoholic drinks. Over priced for what we got. No way near as good as Indian Essence which is much better food and much better value.

    The waiter that served us was great and knew his job however the ancillary staff seemed quite clueless. We said we weren’t having wine yet all the glasses were left on the table, the plates and cutlery along with serving dishes were left on the table long after our starters were finished and when the mains arrived no one new where they were going. We had to reorganise everything ourselves. The toilets were fairly dirty and need far better attention. The acoustics were appalling. There really needs to be some attention paid to this. We had to basically shout across the table to be heard. A consultant in restaurant design needs to be brought in to fix this. The food however was great, on par with Indian essence. So in conclusion I’d have no problem getting a t/a though the prices need to be lower than dine in but I’m not sure I’d return to the restaurant because of the somewhat below par experience.

    Good food but very pricey. Desserts super late, and wrong one sent. But error rectified. Seemed new staff, some didn't know about the food they were serving. Best parts, chilli paneer, and Madagascan prawns. Worse part, wrong desserts. Staff in kitchen eating by the serving window. A bit more professionalism will be great. Overall not too bad.
