Excellent service and nice Indian style afternoon tea. Only criticism is that the masala chai wasn’t very tasty but the food and desserts were yummy

The best afternoon tea I've had. Everything was perfect. No fault. Food was delicious. Generous portions. Service was just the best. Our waiter was ashraf and he was so attentive and great at his job.
Highly recommended. Definately return again.

Second time visiting Cinnamon Bazaar with friends we had cocktails to start and then the afternoon tea which was delicious and very filling.

Last time we went we had one of the booths, and I would recommend asking for one of these as they are more comfortable and you don’t get the footfall behind if you are sitting in the middle of the restaurant. Service was great attentive but not rushed.

We booked for the afternoon tea which was on promotion for £15 per person. We were the first diners at 12pm, and were quickly shown to our seats and provided with the masala chai. The chai tasted really strange, leaving a really unpleasant after taste. We mentioned this to our waiter asking if it was prepared fresh, the response to which was that there were a couple of bottles left over from the day before but they were in the process of preparing a fresh batch of we wanted a replacement! This is not what I would expect from such an establishment. We were then provided with a fresh batch which did taste much better. The rest of the food was nice enough, especially the paneer kati rolls. We were provided with extra pani puri also and were asked if we wanted additional sandwiches and desserts. We were celebrating our anniversary and the restaurant provide a complimentary dessert with an anniversary message which was a nice touch. Overall a good experience but definitely tarred by the unacceptable reheated from the day before masala chai!

Food was great. I wasn’t a fan of the chillis but that was my personal taste. I enjoyed the restaurant however I felt rushed at the end as they had to shut by 10pm.

Good food it’s tasty and the portion sizes are decent. Be pre-warned with the overprice alcoholic drinks where a glass of house red. Yes I said a glass will set you back £11!
The markup isn’t impressive when the food prices are not high. Felt ripped off!

Very good experience. Good was excellent and the service was outstanding. All staff were wearing relevant PPE and followed guidelines. Food came quickly. We had the 9 course sampler menu and there was so much came. We split it between 3 and there was more than enough. Would highly recommend 5* all around.

Pretty average.
Food was out in a flash, almost before drinks order was completed.

Wouldn't rush back.

Expensive drinks.
Paying for premium artisan, wetherspoons quality and delivery.

Service and management disjointed.

Noticed they didn't offer the reward points. Normally indicates they are on the wrong side of the line across the board if the management can't front the costs for reservations.

We were offered a great service and staff were pleasant. Me and my husband went for afternoon tea. Masala chai was nice. The presentation of food was nice. Food is good if you like that type of food which we both did. We received a lovely surprise for booking in for an occasion. A clean, pretty looking place especially up in the ceiling. Enjoyed the experience and time there. Left as happy customers :)

Falls down one star only bc it was NOT COVID-19 secure. Initially it was when we arrived at 730 but then tables filled up and it was like pre covid again, chair touching the other table behind us. I cannot fault the waiting staff, attentive despite it being busy and allowed me to sample wine before buying a bottle. Menu was outstanding
Reminded me very much of mums home cooked prawn curry, lamb biryani was amazing. The dahl was gentle but powerfully tasty with the biryani. Colocasia 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽 but worried re covid safety

The food was outstanding and the service was largely good but we were a little bit disappointed to be handed the bill immediately after dessert and told we had to leave soon as the next party for our table had arrived. I wouldn't normally mind but we weren't warned that we'd have 2 hours maximum (a 9 course sharing menu takes a while to get through) and after saying we'd be off shortly the staff proceeded to join another table to the end of ours and began setting it as we were finishing our drinks. I thought this was unnecessary as we hadn't even been there 2 hours at this point. A slight dampener on an otherwise excellent meal.

Absolutely fantastic food, reasonably priced with thoughtful, prompt and respectful staff. Our only issue was the lack of courtesy of some of the other patrons which is not the restaurant's fault. I will definitely be returning.

I went to the restaurant on 13th September. I would like to commend the staff for their wonderful service. Loved the ambience and food was excellent. It was true to its heritage and flavours that I am used to eating in India.

Wonderful experience. Would definitely come back for more of yummy food.
Only improvement I would recommend is perhaps more options for vegetarians.
