Had a lovely meal to celebrate a special occasion. The 9 course tasting menu was great value for money. We loved the starters, main was ok except every option was very spicy. All in all a nice evening

Great place to eat, atmosphere made it even better.
We had the tasting menu 9 course our only comment it would have improved the experience even more by having each course explained a little bit clearer.

Food and staff lovely, it was very slow on service, but not surprising due to COVID restrictions. Staff did the best they could on a busy night. However we did wait forever. I would go again.

The service was incredibly slow, was not provided with a drinks menu upon being seated and had to request one. No waitor came to our table to serve us throughout the entire evening - we had to call someone over to our table each time.
Food was delicious just a shame about the service.

We had a very enjoyable meal at Cinnamon Kitchen on Saturday evening. We chose the 9 dish tasting menu which was delightful (particularly the starters) and reasonably priced Good service and nice surroundings. Occasional rail noise but what can you expect being in the railway arches!!

This was the first restaurant visit for my family and I. It was a good experience, but ambiance was lacking because of the reduced number of diners. I felt it was a bit expensive at £60 per head.

The sharing testing menu for 33 GBP that includes 9 dishes and 1 drink is a bargain. All dishes are well spiced and cooked of which 3-4 are outstanding whilst the remaining a very good. This is a very good option for dinner with friends in a perfectly modern and vibrant ambience paired with contemporary Indian food managed by a very good chef. It is worth coming back.

Delicious food but disappointing service compared to other visits. Yes it was bank holiday Monday but it took 20 mins before anyone even asked us for a drink - and that was only when we got hold of a waiter. And at the end of our meal we were rushed out as we ordered desserts. At these prices they need to do better. That said food was delicious as ever.

Service by one waiter was really bad, he seemed angry that I asked for a menu I'd seen on the website and then left us for 45 minutes before he took our drinks order. We got the attention of another waiter who was more helpful.

Food was good, nothing special really. Main was lacking flavour for me.

We went there for our anniversary and it was everything that we were looking for, for our special day. The food was amazing and authentic, I can verify that being Indian.

Only 3 waiters who were very friendly and helpful but I think more staff needed. It was Bank Holiday. Food was absolutely lovely but had to wait for at least a 45mins for main food, so did take away. I believe my next experirence will be better. I rate Cinnamon Westminster a lot more where the service is immaculate.

We opted for the 9 course tasting menu and every dish was really tasty. Very good value at £33 each including a drink. Staff were friendly and the service was efficient. We will return and would definitely recommend.

A lovely restaurant with some brilliant curries!

My girlfriend and I visited Cinnamon Kitchen on a double date, with another young couple. We shared most of the dishes we ordered, which I would recommend, because you'll want to sample everything that comes to the table. Set under the old brick railway arches next to Battersea Park it had quirky and well designed interior to go with the yummy dishes served.

The restaurant was also taking part in 'Eat Out to Help Out', which meant that deal was even better value.

Funky atmosphere under the railway arches, you can barely hear the trains as they rattle overhead, as the noise level was quite high in a packed restaurant. Food was nicely spiced and ample. Not cheap eats, £23 for 4 prawns in their curry.

We opted for lots of small plates.
Crab cakes and samosas were amazing!!! Yum!! I would go back just to eat those.
However the mussels were the most insignificant mussels I have ever been served. They were so tiny they were ridiculous. Basically shells with a pea size mussel in a nothing special soup if you love mussels don’t order these.

This was our second visit to the restaurant. We liked the food on the last occasion about a year ago. This time we had the 9 course taster menu which was really great food and value. The only dish I wasn’t keen on was the paneer but that might be my taste alone.

The service was good but wouldn’t describe it as over warm or particularly welcoming unlike the nearby Brindisa.

They were observing C19 distancing well and congratulate them on a very enjoyable dinner during difficult times. We will be back.

We had a good time but went away a little disappointed. Starter was good but the main was a little bland when we asked for it to be cooked hotter she said she would bring some chilliest rather than asking the chef to make it Madras hot etc. Side dishes did not come we to remind the girl which then came half way through our meal. Bill was wrong, menu price was different to till price on one of the cocktails. The waiter did correct it after throwing the menu at us. Saw the restaurant on Masterchef so did expect more. They did bring out a Anniversary Dessert which was a nice touch and appreciated. Regretfully won’t be back.

We found the service attitude of some of the staff almost rude. For the type of restaurant this is, one would expect a lot more politeness and willingness to serve. We had to rush our order, as we were told they would not take drinks / starters orders first until we were ready with the entire order. A flat “No”, which was quite shocking to hear.
Food and ambience was as always - every good.
The Bhelpuri chaat we felt was a bit dry and could have done with some additional sauces.

Clearly trying to churn out as many low quality meals as possible in hope that diners won’t notice/care as they are getting £10 pp from the taxpayer.

Service was poor, started were cold, mains were bland (which is an achievement for Indian food) and deserts were tasteless.

Poor service, poor quality of food. Food quality and standards reduced due to ‘Eat out, help out’. That’s not what it’s supposed to be about. Could’ve got a much better curry and better presented from the local takeaway
