Went there Saturday night! I think they were understaffed so we waited a little between courses etc but otherwise it was a great experience and a fun night! Must admit we had already had an amazing day!

The restaurant was exceptionally busy and as a result the service level was poor. Staff we’re doing the best they could, but either the restaurant had taken too many bookings or had too few staff. The food was delicious and apart from the challenge of getting seated the ambiance was good.

The WiFi was very long winded to access as absolutely no signal if you happened to have forgotten your account password. Something simple like the sky cloud would improvethis.
We spent 2 hous+ in the Restaurant
Received drinks order after the Starter's arrived .
Only 1 round of drinks purchased due to the poor attention given to us.
Starters were warm not hot .Main dishes were tasty ,mild heat ,we had Lamb Rogan Josh. The flavours were lovely
Kitchen staff appeared very relaxed. The waiting/ serving staff were obviously under intense pressure.
It took nearly 30 minutes after our main before a waiter returned to process either dessert or Bill, needles to say the bill was the choice
Had to then seek out someone to take the payment, a member of staff , maybe management in a shirt with buttons undone and sweating profusely ,chasing around looking for a machine. No verbal interaction was offered during payment.
We left feeling very disappointed ,neglected and unloved.......

Being an Indian I don't usually like eating an Indian meal out. However, for Cinnamon Kitchen I would definitely go again. We had the set menu. The food was fresh, tasty and plentiful. No dry pieces of chicken, the butter chicken was moist and flavoursome. The panner and prawns were soft. I don't like aubergines but the sauce with the baby aubergines was amazing. Sticky toffee pudding may not be a very Indian dessert but put it with cinnamon ice cream and it's a delightful combination. And to top it off is a gorgeous berry gin cocktail. The service was excellent, nothing too much trouble and very attentive. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Food as always was amazing. But the restaurant seemed to be short-staffed and was struggling to serve customers or take orders. Had to wait 25 mins to have our order taken. Was a let down.

The food was really good
The main dishes are served complete with rice or breads so we didn’t over eat like we normally do in an Indian restaurant
The food is not spicey for our palette but very tasty
Our waitress was very good and attentive
It’s a big restaurant so good for big groups

We three friends had the sharing menu for £29.99. Love that it was presented as 4 carefully thought out "courses" each paired with plates that would work together. The food was perfectly cooked and beautifully seasoned - eg prawns were still juicy and "crunchy" yet tender and not over powered with too much seasoning so that they still tasted like fresh sea food! The third course was a main lamb dish with rice and black dahl - exquisite! We paired our meal with a lovely Cote de Provence Rosé - that was a perfect accompaniment! Amazing value and a lovely place to dine.

Overall a very enjoyable experience. All of the dishes served were of a very high standard and some were outstanding. The reason why I only gave a 4 stars for overall was because when we arrived, we were shown to a round table at the front of the restaurant, immediately we sat down at this table we all noticed how cold the temperature was at this table. There was an AC unit attached the ceiling above our table which we asked to have switched off but after a few minutes as this seemed to make no difference to the temperature so we were moved to a rectangular table further back in the restaurant and here the temperature was perfect. Downside to this was it was difficult to hold conversation from one end of the table to the other due to the residual noise level and I noticed as the evening wore on that no one was sitting in the front end of the restaurant and all tables in the rear were taken adding to the noise level. Therefore my assumption was that this was a known problem and one that needs to be sorted to have made our experience 5 star. I recommend anyone booking this restaurant to ask for a seat in the rear and if more than 4 people ask for a circular table!

Food was brought out in quick succession and was luke warm. No attention was provided for a good 30-45 mins.
We asked for the bill 4 times and as a result missed the last Thames clipper boat back to Canary Wharf. Food quality and taste was under average. 9 course taster menu.

This venue in Battersea is vibrant and fun and the service was particularly good but the food was not a hood as it should be. Samosas were soggy and it all gave the impression of being mass produced and prepared too far in advance. The naan were better. Drinks fine. £100 for two - the food beeds to improve a lot
