We've been to a number of the Cinnamon restaurants and they're all quality - Cinnamon Club is just stunning. This Covent Garden venue is good, but the service was disappointing. Admittedly it was a busy Friday night, but we were brought the wrong wine, a waiter dropped food on one of us, and it was slow. But the food is good and original. Recommended, but perhaps try midweek when it'll be quieter.

Nice food. Good service. Just a bit disappointed with the Kheer. And the paneer sauce too sweet.

We had to wait fifteen minutes at the front door despite having a reservation. The restaurant was clearly too short staffed.

When we were eventually seated we had to wait another fifteen minutes for our order to be taken and to just get some tap water.

I don’t blame the staff…they were overwhelmed. Management needs to hire more people. Food was tasty.

This is a lovely restaurant close to Covent Garden. Decor and ambience is welcoming as are the friendly staff. The food is based on indian dishes but many have a twist. The lamb shepherds pie is well worth a try. Reasonably priced so well worth a visit.

We arrived at the time of our booking, but were then asked to wait at the bar, which is normally fine but the bar was covered in dirty glasses collected from tables, and theres no real space to sit as its a corridor to the exit- we were then sat there waiting 20-25 minutes (without a drink or menus) until being shown to our table.

We then sat for another 15 minutes before i had to wave down a waiter who took our full order.

This was all very disappointing- but to their credit the food was great and came quickly- but then after that there was no further chance to get a waiter (when we wanted another drink) -they never came beyond the bar to check on tables (its not a big restaurant, i counted 8 tables were occupied- having been a waiter before i know thats really not that unmanageable for 3 waiters). As such we ended up having to walk up to the counter to pay as we left- And clearly this wasnt just us, as another table were doing the exact same.

So overall great food let down by really dreadful service. May have been just a one off (as i dont like to rule out restaurants) but not sure id take anyone again for fear of more of the same service.

Despite providing specific dietary requirements at the time of booking, Cinnamon Bazaar only informed me that they couldn't adhere to the requirements when I arrived at the restaurant. This meant I couldn't have all of my afternoon tea and Cinnamon Bazaar was not apologetic and did not provide me other vegan/ eggless alternatives which were already available on the regular menu as part of the afternoon tea. This was highly disappointing as other restaurants go out of the way to provide alternatives and I didn't feel much care for the customer

Food really good, recommend the watermelon chaat.
Service is very slow if you sit in the bar area. They take a while to serve you for drinks and take your order.

My personal view … highly recommend and a definite return to. Friendly, fun, great service and then there was the food…. absolutely delicious … try the lamb samosas!! I went with my 12.5 year old… and service charges are optional…. rather than forced on you… 👍👍

Very nice food and friendly staff. Unfortunately we had a problem with a little leak in the roof which was right above our heads and we suffered a fair few splashes onto the table. I did mention it as we paid the bill so hopefully they will sort it quickly.
Sadly I really cannot recommend the Irish coffee.
We did not have room for a dessert so cannot comment on that.
I would definitely go back .

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening, especially the food which was delicious, wonderful spiced and different from the usual Indian restaurant staples. We enjoyed sharing the small plates as starters and only wished we had ordered more if each, as they are not huge if you have more than 2 people wanting a taste of everything! (We were a group of 6). The drinks menu has some very nice Indian themed drinks and cocktails and we found the service friendly and very efficient. The only thing is that on a Friday night, the restaurant was busy and lively- absolutely no criticism of that as it is designed to be such- but it was not easy to hear/chat to anyone other than the person directly opposite or next to you. We will certainly come again and would love to try some of the other menus such as the brunch and high tea which sound fantastic!

Amazing meal last night at Cinnamon Bazaar. We arrived few minutes late for our booking but they were very good about it. The 4 course Restaurant Festival Menu is what we had selected and it did not disappoint. Quick, friendly and attentive service really can't fault it. Would definitely go back and highly recommend.
The food was tasty and just the right portions so you didn't feel overly stuffed.

Service was a little slow but I sensed we were in-between lunch & dinner shifts.
Didn't have anyone to mix cocktails until 4pm, our booking was at 3pm

However, the food was super tasty & great value for money

We had the Journey Through The Bazaar and it was wonderful. The curried watermelon (or something like that) was absolutely incredible. The shares and starters were ( in my opinion) better than the mains but that may have been due to being quite full by the time I got to the mains. Wonderful service and incredibly tasty food.
Wasnt a massive fan of the green chillies dish but that was the only thing that wasn't amazing.
