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.

Food is a amazing taste but experience flavours amazing .

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.

Always delicious and with really great service and ambiance. The set menu is great value for money and even the toilets are always clean and nice. Can’t think of anything to fault it for really! It was lovely sitting outside this time with the view of Oxford as the sun went down and the lights went up. Keep up the great work!

Have dined in this restaurant many times and decided to pop in for lunch today. The sun was shining and we were able to sit on the terrace - the setting is so beautiful with the best views of the dreaming spires of Oxford. The food was delicious - the best that is on offer in the Westgate Centre in my opinion. Really tasty Indian food with a European flare. Would definitely recommend the butter chicken and the chicken tikka and cheese naan, although I’ve enjoyed everything I’ve eaten here. The staff were really friendly and efficient. Thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

The food, service, location and view were all very good.
The only thing that was a small disappointment were the drinks.
This is a perfect restaurant for a good selection of Indian inspired cocktails, but there were none.
Thier Espresso Martini was very poor.
Will go back, but won't order cocktails or dessert (they were also uninspiring after great starters and mains).

Food wasn't hot. The portion of rice served with the food is pitifully small. The mixed greens looked like wilted iceberg lettuce heated and chucked in a bowl. Waiters apparently attentive at first but looked deeply disinterested and dint' listen and brought wrong dessert. Grossly overpriced for the quality sadly asI have loved everything about this place until this visit.

It’s such a shame as the food is really delicious, but the waiters are rude and their policies need revising. Our first waiter wouldn’t let us order the sharing menu for 2 people, but between 3 of us, it was only when I spoke to another manager that they let us. Then I told the waitress I am allergic to prawns, and they said I could switch the seafood dish for a chicken dish, and they served me the seafood dish (good job I noticed). Then when I we had food left over, they said it was against there policy to let us take it away! They said you can only take food away if you order a take-away, so they had Tupperware they could put it on. I wouldn’t recommend until the service drastically improves, as the food is delicious.

Not good Indian food at all. Totally overpriced. Trying to be too posh with dishes destroying taste and no spice for an Indian restaurant. I have dined at fine restaurants this place was poor
