The multiple award-winning Cinnamon Club in St James’ is like no other Indian restaurant you’ve visited. Set in the former Old Westminster Library – a Grade II listed building still with books lining the walls - it has a grandeur and character that perfectly compliments its outstanding food. The team of 18 chefs, headed up by Vivek Singh, have a creative approach and a distinctive knack of layering flavours with stunning presentation. The imaginative lunch and dinner menus change seasonally. Pre and post-theatre menus are also available.
The Cinnamon Club is the ideal venue for private dining in Westminster. We can accommodate groups for sit down meals or standing canapé receptions in one of our elegant and timeless private dining areas or bars.
We can also host civil ceremonies, wedding receptions and civil partnership celebrations.
Please call our dedicated Events Team on 020 7222 2555 and we will be delighted to take care of all your arrangements.

Fabulous dining room, lovely food and great service. Marred only by noise. We were in a booth next to a party of four who were genuinely shouting and bellowing. Other diners were all glancing over and were clearly having their evening disrupted too. It meant we finished our mains and left rather than thinking about dessert, coffee etc.

Wow! We had wanted to come here for a while and caught it just before Lockdown 2. We went for the Monday half price Taster Menu and were not disappointed. The tandoori prawn was out of this world and how do they get their meat so tender? It is impossible to eat this food fast – it has to be savoured. Delicious.

Lovely relaxed evening with attentive but not over zealous staff. Excellent, delicious food, fairly decent sized portions but could be a little larger given the prices. The dessert far too small but absolutely delicious. Kind attention given it was our Anniversary.

A truly wonderful lunch to celebrate a big birthday for my husband. Service and food were excellent - the set lunch is remarkable value and their Kerala Fish Curry sets the gold standard for this dish! A lovely birthday sponge cake was an unexpected surprise and a kind thought by the restaurant. It was quieter than usual because of Covid-19 but we enjoyed the occasion very much.

Really enjoyed the tasting menu (which is currently almost half price) with 7 excellent and varied dishes in the Old Westminster Library. Staff were very friendly though we did feel a bit rushed with the courses though never pressured to leave. Quiet and pleasant with very good COVID precautions in place (good distance between tables and all staff wearing face shields).

All a bit gloomy with very dull waiters. Multi course menu delicious for a few items, but fish overcooked and dry and sauces on a some rather overpowering.

We would have been very unhappy if paying the full £85 per head.

Sorry !

In this new normal - it is such a relief to have the Cinnamon Club - from proper menus, to the delicious food, even at set lunch level (I have become quite addicted to the fish curry and lemon rice and the chilli mango soup), to the amazing service sitting in a former library. The service is amazing too.

We took advantage of the "Magical Monday" offer for the 7 course tasting menu along withe paired wines. This was a repeat visit having also taken advantage of their August offer. Each course was a delight. If they continue to extend tempting offers, we will continue to go back!

We booked based on the early bird menu that was in the link on the email the restaurant sent so was somewhat disappointed not to be offered this menu from the outset. However it was rectified and the food was very nice indeed.

Met up with friends at The Cinnamon Club, as always had a lovely evening which is the reason we return time and time again.

Booked to go back in a couple of weeks with another friend and thinking about booking the upcoming feast with a group of 6 (lockdown dependent).

We had delicious food! The tasting menus (both vegetarian and non are fantastic)! Service is impeccable! The only small downside was that the upstairs bar area could do with a bit more of a bar ambiance . Felt a little like a too like have drinks in a library.

We arrived at 7:45pm I’m a Saturday evening and opted for the set menu knowing that we had to be out by 10pm. We had just enough time to eat but wouldn’t have had time for after dinner drinks or coffee, so something to keep in mind when booking at present.

Food was wonderful, the set menu was a great mix and good value for money. Service was good considering the restaurant was full and pressure was on to have all tables cleared by 10pm.

Everything here just felt rather tired and frosty atmosphere. Had to wait at least ten minutes before being offered drinks. My king crab starter was very stringy and chewy. Definitely been in the freezer a while! Lamb shank very insipid spicing - and I don’t like very spicy food. Bread selection bland. We were almost laughed at for asking about poppadums! Won’t go back.

Outstanding quality of food and attentive service. We felt very safe with clear measures around managing Covid, that does mean it lacked some of the atmosphere of the past. Still a wonderful place to go for a special meal though.

We went for the Magic Monday 7 course tasting menu (yes, it is a lot of food!) with a wine pairing. We had one vegetarian menu and one omnivore menu. The sommelier did a fantastic job of matching wines to both menus (which is challenging with Indian food!)....a delightful experience which we will repeat again....
