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.

It was a disappointment.

a) Service: Slow and inattentive, disinterested, uninformed about the menu. We had to ask for service every time we needed a new drink or get the table cleared of unused glasses.

b) Drinks: Prosecco was luke warm. Masala chai was unrecognizable, bitter elaichi milk.

c) Food: Not innovative, clean, or fresh. We ordered fish and chicken as mains. Both plates looked exactly the same: a little cup of rice upside down, a green side, a sauce, the fish or chicken. Fish was dry. No love or pride, just plain boring food.

I did mention that the fish was dry and they were very kind to give us 2 desserts for free, which was very nice.

d) Atmosphere: Way too busy for what they could handle. Not a "let me dress up for Friday night and have a nice dinner" kind of vibe. The venue continues to be wonderful, but that gets lost in merely mediocre service and poor quality of food.

Enjoyable and different - food on the whole is good. The crab starter wasn’t though, expensive £20, over cooked, hard to eat and hardly any crab!!! Rest was delicious, staff were nice, but unexperienced. Fab wine menu and cocktails and the ambiance is lovely.

Food beautiful. Matched wine was disappointingly bland - but maybe I don't want posh wine with curry, wondered if I would have been better with beer. Service came and went early on, but the very invested sommelier and charming waiter paid special attention and made it work.

The Cinnamon Club was very quiet, the food portions very small and tasteless. The duck was very chewy and the lamb was very salty. The amuse was a nice touch and the wine chosen was lovely.

Hard to find fault with the food, which was well spiced and full of flavour, but wine list is nothing short of extortion, and unless you drink tap water or beer, makes it hard to come away without having paid £100 at least a head. Maybe that's expected for a Michelin-starred restaurant, but it leaves a sour taste in the mouth. Service was also very perfunctory and slow. Wine left at another table, water never refilled without asking, and generally not the standard of service expected. "Could do so much better" would be the end of term school report summary, if the Cinnamon Club was a schoolboy.

First time back to the Cinnamon Club since lock down. The person I had lunch with said at the end, "that's the most relaxed I've felt for months" and that sums it up - wonderful food (the mussels soup was a highlight), excellent service (attentive and swift) and great atmosphere. A very pleasant 90 minutes.

Visited on a Saturday night in September. Usual great experience, but restaurant was very busy and staff seemed to be struggling to cope. Service was patchy and had to ask four or five times for water and serve own wine.

The starters and mains were exceptional, however desert was disappointing by comparison as expectations had been raised. Also vegetarian main options very limited and did not come with any rice like the meat dishes, so a bit odd.
Also apparent was an inexperienced barman and waiter, but overall service was of a high standard.

We ordered red wine which arrived chilled, considering their extensive wine menu and the price's of the available wines I do not think this acceptable. The food was unimaginative and poorly paired. The halibut was drowned in curry sauce and very over spiced and the kingfish was simply grilled. I would not be rushing back or recommend.

Don’t really waist your time, I brought my 76 year old mum for a special occasion and we were all disappointed,the place is looking very shabby and dated. Service was terrible waited 10 minutes before being seated when tables are free and we have a booking !!! After being serviced a bottle of water we didn’t get service for over 20 mins and after complaining!!! However the menu looked good when the canapés and starters came out after such a long wait we even laughed that there trying to up the game those two courses were very nice and tasty. The mains came out under cooked if not raw I had the lamb and I was told it’s rump and it’s cooked liked this !!!!!!! Shame the cut of the meat was not a good one and still undercooked. They did change the meat dish but the damage was done. The desserts were ok. This used to be one of the best Indian restaurants in town what’s happens I think Vivek has taken his eye off the ball so many better places to eat today. So sorry can’t recommend at present. Defiantly needs a refit the toilets are terrible to I thought I was back in india in 1985 !!!!
I think the main problem is the staff they just don’t seem to be organised at all

I read about the drinks being slow, and they are, also would expect wine to be poured at those prices but generally I have no other complaints.

We had a fantastic evening at The Cinnamon Club. We had the tasting menu, and every single course was absolutely delicious. Highlights were the lamb course and the venison course. Service was initially a tad slow, we waited a while to order, but once we got started it was great. It’s not cheap, but it was definitely worth it.

Incredible food and service. You didn't disappoint at all.

I had my 7 year old with me and your chef was very amenable with changing the lamb dish to chicken.

Also sent out lots of little treats for Sam and my patrner and Sam were able to visit the kitchen afterwards which was a lovely touch

Thank you team
