Food was good. Ambiance left ALOT to be desired. Way to bright for a Sunday evening dinner. No music. Service was fair. Good
For maybe a work lunch. Definitely not a date or nice evening meal spot.

We found that the service was polite but without being friendly. The appetizer was tasty but it consisted of 4 small broccoli stalks which cost 9 pounds. We were quite disappointed by the main course. We took the shared menu (55 pounds) of Morel Malai Kofta but the kofti were dry and bland. Apart from the stunning decor, there was nothing memorable about this expensive restaurant.

Lovely venue and atmosphere. Friendly waiters although not hugely attentive. Brought lamb garnished with nuts after my wife had told the waiter she had a peanut allergy. Not great - at least they were clearly visible and of course they swapped but meant we had to start without her. Brought me a cappuccino when I’d ordered americano (though left it and didn’t charge for it or the americano when it arrived). Brought a pudding we hadn’t ordered (as well as the ones we had) so sent that back (not charged of course). Limited menu as well. Reasonably tasty food but the butter chicken was nothing special @£70 to share between two. Disappointing over all.

Food was very good though not outstanding. Service was execrable. Table not fully set, had to ask for new cutlery between every course. Ordered a carafe of wine , received two short pours, and then it disappeared to “be kept chilled” never to be seen or enjoyed again despite asking twice. Had to ask for every. Single. Thing. More than once. When you could get the waitstaff’s attention. Ruined the evening.

First time i did not get a warm familiar welcome, i come to the cinnamon club a few times a year and on my birthday every year, but this time i felt like i was just another visitor. Not a big deal but it was something that made the place special for me. In addition, this was the first time I decided to test taking a baby to the restaurant. Although friendly and nice about taking a baby, the high chair was so sticky, it was gross to touch and the straps were so dirty it was grey in places! I expect a much higher standard of cleanliness. It's such a shame the offers have increased in price but the value (as you no longer get a cocktail) reduced. Lovely food as always though.

I went with a friend for my birthday treat. The food was exquisite. Worth the visit. As per other reviews, the service was very hit and miss. Ended not having a drink at the end as it was taking too long to be served.

The food was lovely, but I must say the service was charmless, in particular our waiter, who literally displayed no personal warmth at all. Our waitress was friendly enough however.

Absolutely outstanding Indian food! They also have a wonderful wine list and a tasting menu option. The service is excellent and the venue is breathtaking, inside the former London Library, replete with thousand of beautiful volumes lining the walls. Not to be missed.

Interesting and challenging menus, but if you are expecting the real Indian cuisine, you should go somewhere else.
Atmosphere is nice, so if you are taking your date, it could be a good choice.
Considering the quality of the food, the taste, the price, and the noise, I will not come back here again.

Went to the bar on arrival. Service was friendly but very slow. Food was good, service was haphazard; very odd for Cinnamon Club. We told the waiter no yoghurt with the meal and was assured this would be served on the side. When it was served the waiter put it on the centre of the plate and on the meat. Dessert was supposed to come with a 20 year old tawny which never arrived. Then 10 minutes after the dessert was finished a 10 year tawny was served.

The food was interesting (and tasty), very well presented. The service was rather slow, especially after we had finished dessert and were going to have a glass of port which we just gave up on as we could not get anyone's attention. The couple at the next table had the same problem. The restaurant is good but could be much better if the service issue is fixed. I did not leave with the feeling that I necessarily wanted to go back, at least not in a hurry.

Lovely evening for my mother's 80th birthday. She was made to feel very special. The food was delicious. The set menu is quite expensive and the wine list is eye-wateringly so, but for a special occasion it's definitely worth it.

Been here a few times. Not too good tonight. Maybe it was because it was Friday, but it was not as good as last time.

Starters were great but the main portions were small. My Roast saddle of Romney Marsh lamb, sesame tamarind sauce, pickled root vegetables which cost £29.50 was so small I could hardly see it. Previously the portions have been much better. The atmosphere was a bit flat and it felt like I was in an average Indian restaurant rather than the Cinnamon Club I’ve grown to love.

Best flavor we had in London!

It was hard to find with no sign and inside library (our Über driver had to go back and forth 3 times). Maybe easier to locate it as Westminster Library.

Tantalizing spices. Great presentations. And courteous staff.
