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.

Private Dining

Aptly named after Delhi’s ancient spice bazaar, Khari Baoli is also known as a ‘watering hole’ due to the well from which the 17th century market first originated. Fast forward to today and it is now Asia’s largest spice market playing host to millions of charismatic traders & shoppers who gather every day, not just to exchange ingredients but to feast and swap life stories- just like they’ve done for centuries. Khari Baoli dining room & bar Situated on the first floor above the hustle & bustle of the restaurant, the picturesque dining room seats up to 30 and features its very own private bar. Available for exclusive hire for parties between 12-30 guests, it is the perfect place for anybody looking to exchange their own stories with friends over fantastic food and drink!

I enjoyed trying different flavors of India. We made last minute reservations (a must as many people were turned away) so we had a high top table at the bar. With that said, we really never had a member of the wait staff assigned to us. It was also incredibly loud. Do not plan on hearing much of anything.

Service here is always very friendly and food is exceptionally interesting. Cinnamon Bazaar is by far the best restaurant I know to take a vegetarian to (though it has a wide variety of meat dishes too).

Great food. Requested table with highchair, yet still placed upstairs (meaning we had to lug the buggy upstairs). Forgot to bring us out black dhal and double espresso... otherwise fantastic!

Overall disapointed. The service was very hit and miss. We'd order 4 drinks, 2 would turn up. This happened on 3 different occasions... during the same meal, remarkable. Food was nice however, they just need to sort the service out.

Really loved the tapas style & would probably not bother with mains & just order more of the smaller dishes in future. Bartenders were entertaining & the waitress was great!

This is an interesting restaurant though not really a traditional "Indian" restaurant though it has some lovely dishes. The chaat is excellent and freshly made. There was not a great choice for vegetarians though what was available was excellent

Lovely restaurant, large portions, my friend and I could have shared every course! The portion size is one of the reasons I would go back. I really liked the interior decor. The only criticism I have is that it took a very long time for the dessert to come after the main and we had to remind them twice. Staff were really lovely though so it was almost not an issue.

I never write reviews however I felt compelled to write an outstanding review on trip advisor !
The service was amazing, the afternoon tea was amazing ..... my now new favourite place in London!
It was my friends bday and they brought out a lovely little cake ! It was all very thoughtful and the experience could not have been better!
Thank you so much for a wonderful Sunday afternoon experienced last Sunday at 3pm !!

The cocktails and food were good quality and I enjoyed the ambience of the place. But the service was far too pushy and intrusive...we got interrupted several times by staff midway through conversations. Also sometimes it was 2-3 different staff asking the same question showing no coordination amongst them. I'm sorry that level of service is not acceptable when you're charging £50pp for a meal.

I don't normally do reviews but Afternoon Tea at the Cinnamon Bazaar was so poor I feel compelled to do so. It was poor both in terms of presentation and quality. Started reasonably well with the pre dishes but the actual event was truly disappointing. Thrown together, poor quality, poor variety - other than chicken or fish both sandwich selections had same fillings - macrons and cake were tired and dry. Won't be returning or recommending. Shame.

Seated upstairs but service seemed 'distant' to say the least. Almost had to shout for attention. Left alone at the beginning the wine we ordered sat on the counter for nearly 10 minutes until we requested it was provided. Had to request a cooler.
Food arrived slightly tepid and was reasonably flavoursome.
Wont go again.

Been here twice. Food is amazing and location is good. Your staff are ok but lack attention to detail. Enquiries are dealt with a bit slowly. Hard to get their attention as they don’t make much eye contact with tables.

Very cramped restaurant, very noisy not the dining experience we were anticipating. Really disappointed We enjoy cooking recipes from Vivek’s books and were anticipating something special . This unfortunately was not the case. If this is typical of all his restaurants would not recommend.

The food is good, although a couple of dishes were not that great. In general the ingredients were fresh and the dishes tasty.
Service was very slow and not particularly friendly or welcoming. Not rude, just a bit awkward, and we had to ask a couple of times for some things (ie. to see a food menu when we sat down!)
Nice experience over all though.
