Went here for dinner with a friend after wanting to try since it had opened and I was sadly disappointed. It seemed as they have tried to change their approach to dining due to the success and proximity to Mowgali round the corner and sadly they’ve missed the mark. The dishes my friend had were over seasoned to the point that we had drunk a jug of water and not due to the spice.

This was our second visit to Cinnamon Kitchen and it was just perfect. We were more than satisfied with the food and the staff are attentive and polite. We had the 3 course set menu which was fantastic value. We believe Cinnamon Kitchen is MUCH better than Mowgli, the competition just around the corner. We are 100% coming back again soon. Thank you!

Food was really nice, good portions and lovely flavour. Service could be better, we had to go into the restaurant before we were acknowledged. The set dinner menu wasn’t given even though I had booked for that so I had to ask. We ordered a few dishes which we were then told weren’t available due to a problem with suppliers.

Very good, authentic Indian food but there were very limited menu options for dinner, no Indian dessert and to be honest it can be a bit expensive! But a good experience overall!

The quality of the food and presentation of each dish was exceptional. Unfortunately, the service was terrible. We waited 15 minutes before being asked for our drinks order (the restaurant wasn’t busy). Further, we had to request our tap water twice and to ask for attention when we wanted to order our food. The booking was made for a birthday celebration and we were left feeling rather disappointed with the experience as a whole.

I've dined at Cinnamon Kitchen many times now and never had a bad meal or experience, whether dining as a large group or as a romantic dinner for two. The food is always exquisite with layering of flavours and interesting new things to try. A good amount of food without leaving you feeling overloaded. Staff that care and a lovely ambiance. Beautiful twinkling lights and views over Oxford by evening. Even the toilets are always very clean which I think it always a good sign of general attitude to cleanliness throughout. Well done to the team who work there - it's consistently a lovely experience and delicious food. And it's close to The Alchemist for an entertaining cocktail experience to round off a lovely evening!

We had the sharing menu - eight dishes for two people. Very good selection and just the right amount, ie slightly more than we could eat, including a dessert. Service excellent. Great value as always.

It all started bizarrely as all our information had our reservation at 2pm, they had it at 1:30. Plus they asked us thoroughly about reservations although the restaurant was empty. The starters were very good, the fish main course less so. Service was a bit sparse especially as the restaurant was empty.

My wife and I have been intending to visit Cinnamon kitchen for some time - now we are glad we did!
The staff were very welcoming and pleasant. We ate at lunch time and were initially surprised how short the menu was - but soon stopped worrying as we were struggling which of the dishes to order ! I had the best garlic naan bread ever! Our main courses were excellent . We shall return.

I would not recommend this restaurant. The decor is nice - modern and new as expected. The atmosphere was fine, wasn't quiet or too noisy. Aside from that, incredibly disappointing. My meal tasted and looked exactly like a jar of sauce from a supermarket. Not unpleasant but obviously not what you want for £15 without sides! My husband's was a little better but still pretty dull. Garlic bread was quite small and thin, nothing exciting, but did taste of garlic! We were seated right next to the open kitchen and noticed the kitchen staff standing around looking bored a lot despite it being Friday night. Also we ordered food and drinks together and the food came literally within a few minutes, quite a long time before the drinks. Altogether... I'm not sure how much fresh cooking happens at this very overpriced restaurant! Service was definitely without a smile, she even seemed irritated when I asked what soft drinks they had. I couldn't see it anywhere on the drinks menu, just alcohol, but maybe I was missing it. Don't bother!

The moment you arrive the staff team make you feel welcome, they offer to hang your coat up and take you to your table. The waiting staff are very smily and polite.

The food was delicious and there was a great selection on the menu and drinks on the drink list. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The food arrived really quickly.
However it was relatively expensive. Although I would recommend it and I will probably visit again.

Lunchtime service was not very attentive. We were greeted nicely and had two excellent cocktails but felt we would have liked more interest and guidance in our choice. Set menu was not forthcoming until asked for. We were helped with choice of starter but overordered the mains which we discovered needed rice or bread as they had a heave sauce. No serving spoons for anything and water not replenished. Just a little more interest and care would be great.

Went to Cinnamon Kitchen on a beautiful sunny day with my mum for a last minute lunch, mainly chosen because we knew they had a nice outdoor seating area. Food was delicious, super good value (a great cocktail happy hour deal and food prices are v reasonable) and the service was amazing! The inside of the restaurant is also gorgeous so will definitely be coming back at some point.

Service was great, very quick, guess food is preprepared and reheated as came out remarkably quickly but was lovely. Good value but we did have a voucher that gave us £20 off. Second time there and will definitely return.

What a fabulous experience from start to finish. Cool, stylish and relaxing interiors with a not to be missed outside seating area which was the perfect suntrap on a glorious September afternoon.
The food was outstanding with vibrant flavours displayed appetizingly on a selection of small plates. A mixture if authentic Indian cuisine expertly blended with a contemporary twist. Truly worth a visit. All of this washed down with a delicious wine knowledgeably recommenced by our host and server ‘Virgil’, who was charming, professional and happy to spend time advising us on the perfect choices to suit our tastes. He was superb and a real asset to the establishment.
All in all... I’ll be back and recommending to friends and family.
Thank you to ‘Virgil’ and Cinnamon Kitchen for a memorable experience.
