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

Great food, great restaurant in an excellent location. Staff very attentive and friendly.
A treat to be had. Only downside are the heavy London prices in Oxford.
It's not cheap, but worth a visit.

Was really great apart from they ran out of their famous prawns which we both went there for. So we ended up paying a pretty penny for something we didn’t want!

The food was delicious, served reasonably fast. The portions were in the medium range but everything was very nicely cooked and presented. There was an overall lack of lustre about the place, which considering the price point of some of the dishes doesn't match up. Be warned, opentable may book you a table under the set menu (which is excellent value) for any time, however the restaurant will tell you the set menu is only available 5-6 and after 9.

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.
