    Birthday meal for 4 people . We had the tasting menu and wine pairing . The atmosphere was lively , the setting was beautiful and the food superb . Sadly the wine pairing didn’t always come before our dish and the service was a little slow but apart from that it was great .

    We used the Cinnamon Club as a venue to celebrate a retirement, the person in question is an avid Indian food eater and the Cinnamon Club delivered on every level. We had the summer tasting menu, 6 courses of very well appointed and varied delicacies, each unique and complimentary of he other. We could not fault our experience and will definitely return to this establishment again in the future.

    Very good value for money. We enjoyed the summer 6 course tasting menu. Every course was full of flavour, but was lacking in presentation. Young man serving each dish offered clear, appropriate descriptions of each dish. Manager lacked a personality and seemed to be in wrong job.

    Good food, not brilliant, but tasty. Room VERY brightly lit. Service let it down. The main Barman in the basement could not have been less interested in our order. And the service upstairs also slightly patronising (not everyone, some staff delightful, but the guy who took out orders was not welcoming). Overall just an ok experience. Wouldn’t rush back.

    Visiting form Colorado, it was so great to eat here, as we would never find anything like this for hundreds of miles. We had the Summer Festival Menu (vegetarian) and although enjoyed it, it was just a bit too much food for us. If I were to go again, I would just order an appetizer and entree, not have all 6 courses. The deconstructed poached peach cheesecake was also very good though. Having a quiet room to retire to with tea and petit fours was also very nice and made us feel looked after. The staff was super nice, accommodating and we loved the old library location. Thank you for a memorable night in London!

    Generally good food, some outstanding, but messed up on service. We had a 5 course tasting menu but they forgot which course we were on. As a consequence the meal dragged on interminably. They made efforts to recover the situation and apologised profusely but it left us feeling a little disappointed. Not quite up to the standards we have experienced previously.

    What a fabulous experience. The food was excellent but the service made it an experience. We had the Summer classic menu which was 50 pounds per person and well worth it. Our server, Sam, was excellent. He was very kind and attentive. The manager ended up waiting on us and he describe every dish like a story we couldn’t wait to try. We highly recommend this restaurant in the very interesting setting of the old Westminster library.

    Profoundly disappointing. The menu is all talk and no trousers. The 'Camphor and Sandalwood Chicken Breast with coriander chutney' comprised a small wedge of dried out chicken alongside a dollop of bland yoghurt and bog standard chutney (presumably coriander hid somewhere within it.) We needed to remind the waitstaff that we'd like some wine with the food. We'd previously ordered a 'Club Martini with Spicy Onion' only to be told they had no spicy onion. The cheapest bottle of wine came at £35, others prices leapt to higher than the cost of an overall meal. So to the 'Hyderebadi black spiced lamb escalope with smoked paprika raita'. The meat was tender, pleasant though blandly spiced. On the side of the small plate sat the signature blob of dreary yoghurt accompanied by a tablespoon sized ball of something that tasted not unlike meat infused flaxseed or bran. Wholly uninspiring. The main courses lurched in: 'Chettinadu style duck leg curry with dark spices' resembled the kind of meat in sauce dish you'd get in any cheap Indian. It was bland, generic and wearying. In view of the grandiose claims made about fresh spices etc. it filled one with ennui. As for the next dish, where to begin? Or more accurately where to end since it confirmed we needed to leave and be gone: 'Koorgi style double cooked pork belly, marsala mash raw mango and chili samba' The meat resembled a small black scat of bear dung. Our best guess is that tamarind gave it its unedifying hue. The taste was truly disgusting, with the meat impossible to recognize as pork. Brisket was the nearest thing one could imagine. A heavy clagging taste caught the back of the tongue, instantly filling the mouth with regret at the choice. Again there was nothing specific or vibrant in the spice aspect. One dreads to think how long before being served this moribund dish had been cooked and left to expire. This pretentious restaurant should be ashamed. And avoided.

    The ambiance is very special. The staff are exceptional. (Our waiter on Thursday who made up the table in lightening time to our specification and Rushi, new and both professional and delightful) The diners relaxed and happy as a result. The food is innovative and flavours and combinations very unusual. Can almost guarantee you will find something here you will never have had before.

    My companion and I had excellent meals, mainly seafood (a phenomenal trout starter and excellent halibut mains) but I also had a splendid lamb starter. Very good wine, excellent and attentive service throughout (Sam from Stratford was a particular hit with my companion). Will definitely return later in the year. Only complaint was that we couldn't manage any desserts!
