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.

A wonderful restaurant - superb and elegant food, plus caring and friendly staff in a book-lined room which once housed the Westminster Library.
Particular thanks to waiter Rejab, who presented us with a Happy Reunion dessert plate to share with our daughter after the pandemic kept us apart for over two years.
We will be back

This was our first time at Cinnamon Club and we weren’t disappointed. The venison and pigeon dishes were standouts and the service was superb. We also visited the downstairs cocktail bar, which we recommend for its ambience and for its pre- or post-dinner drink selection. Special thanks to Nicholas who served us one of the best negronis in London.

Worst restaurant experience for many years - need to recruit a restaurant manager

Ordered drinks at the start off the meal don’t even know that a G+T flat tonic is no good and it actually has a lemon not nothing. Everyone forgives a mistake but asking twice with 10 minute turn around a to get the start drinks right.

Ordered and shared 3x starters were acceptable but nothing special
Then the main course came we had butter chicken (small bony chicken not even marinated like it should be it was like it had been dipped in the sauce 5 minutes before serving), venison very tough and chewy and lamb absolutely tasteless.

Last times I have come before lock down was amazing. Must be new management - truly truly appalling

The Cinnamon Club
Responded 15 hours ago

Dear Paul, Sorry to note you did not have the best of time with us. True the tonic might have been flat without ice and only lemon as garnish, we did give the tonic on the side second time, have learnt it, should have done it in the first instance. The core team is still the same some serving since opening, i take your feedback onboard and will share it with team and we will work towards making your next experience a memorable one. Thanks again for your detailed insight Team Cinnamon

Just the worst dining experience we have ever had in London. I feel robbed of the £330 we paid. A meal far, far worse than our local takeaway- poor ingredients , uninteresting, oily, the fish overcooked- and the cost per head was £125 (including a terrible over- sweet cocktail). No coffee or chocolates were offered or given despite this being in the menu. Chaotic service , tables stuffed together, despite there being space on the upper floors. We had a bottle of wine which was simply dreadful and £77. I have never ever written a bad review for a restaurant before but, really this was a disgrace for the cost. Simply awful.

The Cinnamon Club
Responded on 6 January 2022

Dear Elliot, I take your feedback on board, i have written to you in detail to your email. It was a 5 course meal with choices, i am sorry if you r choice did not meet your expectation. We have followed all the COVID protocol, it would have been easier to spread people in various areas but with no atmosphere on a special night would have taken the charm off, we have been operating with similar menu for 20 years and have always had positive response we hope to reclaim your faith in us in future.

The meal and service was good initially. The festive menu was very tasty apart from some small aspects.
The service at the end of the meal was abysmal, being forcibly moved from the bustling, lively and vibrant dining room to the dark and almost entirely empty bar, save for one other poor couple who had suffered the same fate as us. To not be offered the coffee and petite fours that we had paid for without having to first speak to a manager. Then being told neither of us could have the coffee we ordered. The tea which we were forced to order as a second choice was brought with only steamed milk.
Very poor from such a storied establishment!

We love the ambience of the Cinnamon Club. We were a party of four and were placed at a table that was too large for us so conversation a bit tricky. Food was mostly very good. It my halibut was dry and the sauce with it not to my liking (although I love spicy food in general). The others in our party were, however, very happy with all their courses.

It was lovely. It was quiet as we went mid afternoon in strange times. Our only minor gripe was that the first wine we ordered took a long time to come, after the starters and only when chased. Everything else was great and the food (set price lunch) was great.

A 1.5 hour dinner turned into a 4 hour event waiting for courses for an hour in between. The bartender did not exist in the bar, it seemed that the meals were being harvested before cooked because of how much time it took to get each course. We also did not receive 2 of our courses. The food we did get was very good, but disappointed in the service for how much money it cost.

As nice as the food was, it was not worth the money. We were also upsold wine without being informed of the price which was a nasty surprise when given the bill. Unfortunately the last impression is often the lasting impression. The service was below par too, nothing to do with the staff members, there was simply not enough staff to meet the needs of the customers. We would not return.

It was our first time and we really enjoyed ourselves. The food was stunning and the service very friendly and efficient. The only minor glitch as that an extra bottle of water was brought and poured without our requesting it and while we still had some in the first bottle! We were not charged for this, however. We will be back!
