Food was good although we were not asked if we wished to order from the a la carte menu and as a result ordered from a more restricted menu without realising.

Kept waiting a bit for reservation on a rainy evening. Table was a poor location even with others seemingly available so felt a bit annoyed with that. Waiter ( Bose) was excellent and thoughtful. We ask for an unusual wine and for a Georgian wine which was acceptable

We let Bose choose our food and he did a great job. The space was a bit cold and uninviting but the place was busy so that helped

I entertained 4 of my colleages from outside of London for Lunch at The Cinnamon Club taking drinks in the downstairs bar before eating and we enjoyed the whole experience. The service was slick and professional and although we were the last customers to leave the staff were exceptionally accommodating. Thank you!

A beautiful and interesting building and a lovely spicy smell permeates the restaurant. Far removed from the menu of a typical indian restaurant. Interesting dishes at sensible prices. The staff are all lovely as well.

The starters were amazing so the mains, whilst very good, didn't quite live up to the same standard.

Service overall was very good but let down a little by a disorganised cloakroom

As usual our meal was wonderful, the grilled Octopus in spicy tomato sauce was tender & beautifully spiced the crab risotto was perfect & the grilled Pacific king prawns were just unbelievable.
The festive touch with the Garam masala Christmas pudding & cinnamon ice cream was wonderfully decadent.
All enjoyed with a carafe of great wine & friendly professional service all added to a great dinning experience, a little pricey but with dinning this good who cares.

The food and ambience were fantastic. Lovely spot for a long lunch. However, it took over an hour and 15 minutes to get our food. We were required to follow up with the wait staff to have the food delivered. I think they forgot our order as we ordered from the set menu. I would keep the delay in mind if booking here.

Great food and wine but service was very poor. Sporadic, un-paced and channeled through the senior staff of which there were not enough of.

Generally ok but for the price would have expected more.

Food and ambience was excellent. Initial service good too, but towards end of the meal when restaurant was busy, the couple sat next to us left as they had been waiting over half an hour just to order, and we had been left 25 minutes without being asked if we wanted coffee or even for the chance to pay the bill. It was a shame as everything had been excellent up to dessert

The food at Cinnamon Club was amazing! However, when we arrived, service felt rushed and we were seated without a proper greeting or our coats being taken. After this our cocktails arrived simultaneously as our starters, creating a rushed feeling. However, all the food and drink was delicious and the surroundings of the library made the night highly enjoyable! (But there is definitely room for improvement on the service front)

The naan is not warm, the service was not great, the waiter did not introduce each dish properly and we also couldn’t hear him well. The welcome champagne came at our second dish whilst we saw others came when they were still reading the menu. It was Christmas day lunch and was pricer than usual. It was 125 pounds pp, the price was not an issue, the issue was the service level could not compensate it at all. To be fair there is no service charge if the table has less than 8 people therefore there was no service for the two of us. The food was not bad but was certainly not exceptional. Even if normal day price was 40-60 pp I would think it barely worths the money. I thought it would be better indian food because, it is marketed to be indian fine dining and creative cuisine. But probably just too much marketing there. At least the plates served in the restaurant was different than the plates they used in marketing photos. The only thing I don’t complain about is that the clothes don’t stink after leaving the restaurant. People on open-table are probably too nice and generous with the ratings, I would give a 2.5 but the system wouldn’t let me so it is a 2.

We just had Christmas lunch at this restaurant. I can confidently say that this was our worst experience of all the high end Indian restaurants. Food was average and abysmal customer service.

Set meal was £125 per person but the food was below average. My local Indian restaurant serves better food for £25. I had 'Salmon carpaccio with caramel Jhal muri'. It tasted ok but not something I expected to eat in an expensive restaurant. My partner had 'mini pancakes (uttapam) with coconut chutney'. The presentation of this dish was worse than a street vendor. My partner said that the pancakes and the main course (kofte) tasted stale. I had king prawns. Prawns had nice flavour but I had to eat lot of gritty sand with it. Side dishes were average too. Interim course was great.

We gave this feedback to the waiter. 'Mr Harsh Joshi' (Manager) came and spoke with us. He gave us his card. He told us to email him later and promised to look after us in the future. We were disappointed with his response and hoping that he would have tried harder to rectify the situation. We were presented with the final bill with no further discussion or consideration. We asked to speak to the manager hoping our bad experience would be reflected in the final bill. We waited for almost 30 mins but it appeared that staff were avoiding to speak with us. I think they were hoping that we would pay and leave quietly. Finally we decided to get up and speak with them. Another gentleman told to us to either pay in full or leave without paying anything at all. There was no attempt made to acknowledge our experience and turn it into a positive customer experience by offering something in return. The promise of 'looking us next time' gave us no confidence.

I am sure my review wouldn't necessarily stop people eating at this restaurant. At least I would not recommend it to anyone. There are so many good high end Indian restaurants in London now that it would be OK to give this place a miss in the future.

Christmas lunch at the Cinnamon club was a wonderfully different way to spend the day. The menu was exciting and varied and all four of us loved the subtle spicing, different tastes and textures. Of particular note, two starters, the lobster bisque soup with cognac and the partridge breast. Staff were lovely and to our surprise the manager reimbursed the money (we had paid upfront for this special day) for the two members of our party who could not attend because of illness. This was not at our request but offered at the end of the meal. We had a lovely time and will come again.

The food was good overall with a few dishes that had execution issues like very tough lamb. We had the Christmas festive menu and they were able to accommodate a non-spicy version of the tandoori chicken for our son. The service was very slow and not very attentive. We had to ask several times for drinks or silverware. Also, we sat next to the kitchen in a high traffic area. Finally, the location was hard to find as there was no signage from the road.
