Visiting at lunchtime during the whole Covid thing meant it was quiet but unlike smaller restaurants this didn’t spoil the atmosphere. In fact it was really quiet; I should imagine that when really busy it would be quite noisy. The service was fantastic and the set menu varied, interesting and really great value, with nine courses and none of them a dud. The food here is so tasty with beautiful warm spicing and for me just the right amount of heat. The location is a little off the beaten track but it was a pleasure to walk around very nearby Battersea Park afterwards.

Great location, although Hammersmith and Fulham have recently added restrictions in Bagleys lane etc, so be careful!!! The signage is terrible and easy to miss. £130 if you do miss them!
I walked along the Thames had a fantastic meal at the kitchen with great cocktails!! The mixologist there is awesome. Great staff, very friendly and even though we have the covid background book a table and enjoy a lovely dining experience.

Restaurant was not too busy, so food arrived as expected. Andreas was helpful and attentive. Cocktails were well prepared and enjoyable. Food generally of a high standard, with the tasting menu giving an abundance of delicious dishes. Only concern was the condition and safety of the broken front door. Impossible to open and close and looked dangerous

We had the tasting menu which was a great mix of food and very good value. However, it said it ran until 9pm - we arrived at 8.30 and weren't offered it so we had to ask specifically. Then when we chose this menu we were told they had to bring it all at once, which never actually happened so we didn't quite understand the issue.

But aside from that, none of the staff seemed particularly happy to be there. I understand the situation isn't the best at the moment but they were pretty miserable which was disappointing considering the food and place itself was lovely!

Great venue, although quiet, but I was dining at an early lunchtime. I imagine a great atmosphoere at other times. Loved the decor and the food was quite simply the best Indian meal I have ever had.

Great Indian food , presented in a modern way.

Really delicious food, friendly service and lovely venue.

The food was cooked to perfection - highly recommend the biriyani and butter chicken! The cheesecake was so light and airy it was very delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive but not too persistent/loud.

The venue is really nice and modern, highly recommend for any occasion!

Wonderful experience overall. If anything, consistent with my prior visits, service was a bit slow (which is a little bit unnerving with an infant sleeping in a pram, but not a deal breaker).

When we arrived we did not feel welcome - our whole arrival was as if we had entered a normal cafe and were taken to a table which was wobbly and rocked when we touched it. The waitress didn’t bother to find out that we had booked the 9 dish sharing platter so we had to inform her. She eventually brought the dishes to us but plonked them on the table without acknowledging that she was about to do this which we found quite rude. When we had finished the said waitress appeared and to our whole arrival was as if we had entered a normal cafe and were taken to a table which was wobbly and rocked when we touched it.

When we had finished the said waitress appeared and took our dishes without asking us if this was the case. Normally in a restaurant such as yours the waiting staff would have the necessary training on how to be polite and respectful of their diners. At the end of the meal we were charged twice for a 9 dish sharing platter for 2 people at approx £30 - we were charged £60. We asked to speak to the ‘manager’ who was rude and said that he didn’t care. The ‘manager’ appeared to be lacking in any form of customer service etiquette. In a nutshell the whole experience was breathtakingly bad! There was a total lack of the welcoming Asian ambiance which we love and have received in other restaurants similar to Cinnamon Kitchen. The food was mediocre, the waitress was completely rude, sullen and very unwelcoming. The ‘manager’ should be sent on a customer care course. We won’t be dining in this restaurant in future and we will never recommend it as this was one of the worst dining experiences we have had. Vivek Singh should be ashamed to be advertising this restaurant in his name as it is absolutely horrid.

The best Indian fusion restaurant I've been in the UK. I go there once or twice every year and never felt disappointed. They even cater for special diets such as onion & garlic free ingredients in their meal.

Service was a bit dodgy at the beginning but they made up for this during the evening. 9 course menu good although parts too hot (I’m Indian btw) and took away from the taste. Will go for Al a crate next time

This is not an "average" curry house - this is refined Indian Cooking and well worth a visit. The restaurant is large and was very quiet on a Friday lunch service but the food is exceptional. We have been a few times before but were taken by the tasting menu which, at £33, including a welcome beer or glass of wine, is amazing value and gives one a chance to try dishes that we wouldn't normally order.

I hope that through this very difficult time they can survive and thrive but the whole of Circus West seems to have suffered and until the Power Station itself starts to fill it may remain subdued.

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.

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.
