Food was a bit bland. The service was incredibly slow and inattentive. We might have tried dessert but the waiter never came back for our order. We had to get up to leave in order to get their attention so we could get the bill. A shame because the setting and location is good.

The food here is outstanding: we had the lobster soup and chicken tikka to start then ox cheek vindaloo and paneer mains. All were faultless and flavoursome. Could have had it all again. Service very good too - one of the best Cinnamon chain for sure.

This was our first visit but certainly won’t be the last! We were seated outside on a lovely warm day where we were able to enjoy the rooftop views of Oxford. We booked for mid afternoon and, although not too busy, there were plenty of diners. The service was quick and the staff very attentive to our needs.

Excellent overall experience. The food is nice but the dinning experience is a lot more important and just "food".
Cinnamon Kitchen provided us with a memorable dinning experience. Can not rate the waiting staff any higher. It is such a pleasure to be provided with a professional service by people who genuinely want you, to enjoy your family outing.
In all a huge kudos to the management team that can deliver on the whole experience , food, service, ambience and the little details .
whole family, have become a huge fan !

Had a fabulous lunch yesterday at Cinnamon Kitchen. The food was excellent; wonderful flavours, well presented and very high quality. The set price menu offered enough variety to please all four of us, and spared us the impossible task of trying to make a selection from the amazing main menu. We’ll definitely be back.

Although the food was outstanding, it was completely let down by the poor service on the day. We were booked to enjoy a lunch to celebrate a birthday and looked forward to the event. Unfortunately the lack of attention and having to ask for water to drink was apparently too much an ask..we ended up having to go and ask directly at the bar to fill up a water jug. For dessert we waited 15mins to take the order...but at that point we decided to leave. A real shame and left us disappointed for the afternoon!

We had the set menu for 4 people, this was a menu for 2 twice. The menu included 2x biryani dishes, 1 chicken and rice, in my opinion this was way too much rice and the menu should have been more varied. To be fair we didn't really study what was on the set menu before choosing. All of the dishes were good just not enough variety.

The food was really good, some lovely tastes and catering for all, with a Vegan 4 course meal on offer. The staff were friendly, but the service was pretty shambolic. They had clearly not read the detail of the booking, the order was not taken properly, the drinks took a long time to come so we had finished eating before the second set arrived and the bill took three goes to get right. It is a lovely setting, but the background music was too noisy in a room which is already noisy.

Wonderful food as anticipated as we had seen Cinnamon Kitchens on TV. Unfortunately service was poor, we had to wait to order drinks, wait to order food, wait to order dessert, however when ordered it came to the table within good time. We then ordered coffees and waited 25 minutes for them to arrive and when they did they were cold. We didnt say anything as it would have involved more waiting. We would go back as the food was delicious but only for a normal meal. We went for my husband's 60th birthday and all the waiting was very disappointing. Had they been full we would expect to wait longer but they had half the tables empty.

Nice idea and some interesting dishes but the menu was very limited and no indication of how hot each dish was. I asked the waiter to let me know which dishes were milder and he said they all were fairly mild but when they arrived it was too hot for me and I didn't eat it. It was a shame as I went there for my birthday and went home hungry. I suggested to the waiter that they add this to the menu for future reference but he didn't seem particularly bothered or interested.

I also had some trouble getting any response from the restaurant in advance of the date. I had to email a number of times and then only got a response from head office rather than the Oxford restaurant themselves.

Unfortunately I cannot recommend this restaurant I had a very poor meal The starter was OK but the seabass was awful it was presented dreadfully I could not eat it and it was tepid. I have eaten at Cinnamon Kitchen from when it first opened in Oxford and have had very good meals, but have to say this was very disappointing . I don't know whether they have changed their chef but I won't be returning in a hurry

Excellent dinner with friends. Our first time here, we chose the Sharing Menu - a bit pricey, more food than we would normally have ordered, but the right thing to do - we ended up sampling some fantastic dishes that we would probably never have ordered otherwise.

This is an upmarket restaurant serving Indian food. If you are looking for "standard curry house fare" you will be disappointed. I thoroughly enjoyed my meal, but others in my party were not so impressed. They didn't like that there were no poppadoms (or other standard Indian snacks/starters) and in general found their food to be not worth the cost. I personally disagreed, enjoying the inventiveness of the food (I had the venison), and the delicious side dishes (the potato paratha and 24 hour black lentils were excellent). I think I would recommend it to be people looking to be a bit adventurous, but I would not suggest it for people looking for a standard Indian curry night which is a bit more fancy.

Best food in the Westgate Oxford. I had to give a 4 for value because it is quite expensive, but don't be put off because the food is excellent, and actually worth it in the end.

Very tasty food, great selection all the way through - the ceviche to start was probably the highlight. Rapid, friendly service but not too imposing either. The prices aren't the cheapest but they do represent excellent value for money so there's no problem there at all. Definitely recommended!

The staff are wonderfully friendly and the restaurant is beautifully decorated. My small criticisms are that the staff weren’t consistent with topping up our drinks and our starters weren’t cleared quick enough. Other than that, the staff were lovely and polite and the food was tasty. I’d definitely return.
