Great ambiance friendly staff and the food is delicious only criticism is there was only one vegan choice on the mains there was more choice last time we visited. One member of our group didn't like aubergine so had to order sides rather than a main dish.

Such a fab evening. Six of us dined here on a busy Saturday night. It was a relaxed evening with great service and incredible food. We ordered a few small plates to share and did the same with the larger plates. It was a rainbow of colour and each dish was as delicious as the rest.
I really appreciated that we were not rushed to finish for another sitting. It’s the way eating out should be!
Even the deserts were yummy.
Thank you Cinnamon Bazaar. Xx

Not a conventional Indian restaurant, in terms of the decor and the food. If you want to try somewhere different then this is a good venue for you! The food was very tasty, but I thought the portions were a little small.

Had such an amazing Indian afternoon tea at Cinnamon Bazaar. The food and service were absolutely on point.

Our waiter was Dominic and he was extremely attentive and ensured the food, tea and cakes were continuously topped up.

Would highly recommend and would most definitely go again.

Amazing staff and beautiful food with an even more stunning setting. Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon here and will definitely be back. The only feedback i’d have is to have a few more things on the menu because the food is so good!
Thank you to the entire team!

The starters were very tasty. I had the paneer which was delicious and a good portion. The mains were okay. The garlic naan could do with some more garlic plus it was cold.

We loved to food and the unusual interior. The selection of drinks was good too. However, the prices were a little high compared to similar quality Indian restaurants we’ve been to and the air conditioning system needs improvement (it feels a little stuffy inside).

Good fusion Indian food, but not high-end. Reasonably priced given it is located in Covent Garden. Service was excellent and the staff very friendly.

My only criticism is the acoustics. The walls are bare and the noise echoes back and forth. It is very loud and difficult to have a conversation without shouting. This generally detracts from the otherwise pleasant ambience.

Thank you to the staff at Cinnamon Bazaar, you were amazing. Very friendly & accommodating.
It was my birthday and they gave me a little treat to celebrate, so sweet.
I highly recommend the authentic afternoon tea. There was variety of food which was very tasty. The fish sandwich was delicious.
I love the colours & decor in this restaurant, very traditional.
The masala chai was the only let down as it didn’t taste like the traditional chai and it got cold very quickly.

We visited Cinnamon Bazaar yesterday in a lunchtime slot for afternoon tea. It was like a tasting menu with lots of small fabulous dishes which had an explosion of tastes. Two courses of savoury and one of sweet, delicious vegetarian options, filling but not overly and wonderful pots of tea in gorgeous little hand painted tea pot kettles. Lovely ambiance and great service and value, even offered one extra dish for free - can’t wait to go back !

Better than your average high street Indian but the food was not very exciting and prices of course reflect the area it is in. A canteen ambience, not very special in any way.

Excellent great tasting food with brilliant ambience and service. The chaats were delicious and so were the main dishes. However the reason I couldn't give 5 stars is because of lack of vegetarian dishes in the mains section of menu. If this is increased, I would be happy to give it 5 stars on my next vsiit

Amazing food, it was so delicious. Quite limited menu but it was fine as the food was so good. Service was ok, the restaurant was so busy even at 9pm so I think they were just rushed off their feet. Would go back for the food.
