Food was absolutely delicious, 5* from me. Where it fell was the service unfortunately. All of the staff that served us seemed very young and inexperienced - not rude but just seemingly oblivious to typical standards of service. I’d recommend a quick training course on general etiquette and that would elevate the restaurant to its full potential in my opinion. Will certainly be back either way.

This restaurant is really exciting, it's nestled inside an enclosed square with exotic outdoor sofas and a gazebo. Inside is very sleek but luminous, the food is excellent and the service really warm and outstanding. Will come back soon!

The experience was ok overall but a little disappointing considering the chef's name being attached. Nice venue but the service was lacking, one member of staff was good and friendly, another was very hard to understand, no expression on her face and confused with no idea of items on the menu. I always had to actively try and get service for drinks or to order food and waited for 15 minutes from sitting down before even attempting as assumed someone would come round to ask! I did this for a birthday booking but didn't feel that special. Food was nice but lacking in option for sides like saag aloo, bombay aloo, bhajis maybe. I personally won't be going again. Felt like all areas had been streamlined for profit and customer experience didn't get considered.

The food was great and very tasty, but service wasn’t great and very disappointing.
We had to ask for drinks, had to wait 45 mins for starters which didn’t come up all at the same time, then the mains came quickly after the starters and again not all at the same time. We were a large group of 10 but still would expect food at same time, particularly in a restaurant of this quality. The orders kept being wrong.
Plus the toilets were dirty with rubbish on the floor and very messy.

Overall disappointing

I have heard a lot about Cinnamon Kitchen so was looking forward to it. It is placed really well and has a great ambience. The food was a little underwhelming, small portions and not your usual sharing plates like in most Indian restaurants. Starters were better than the mains. Only downside they handed me a huge bill which belonged to another table, and when I asked the manager what happens if you make a mistake on a bill, he looked a little bemused and had no answer to me. All I could see was him having a go at our waiter for the mistake and made him apologise to me.

Ladies toilet was disgusting !!!
Food was only ok . Small portions . Overpriced massively. The excuse of no gas for the beer pumps was poor . £6.50 for a small bottle of beer !
Very underwhelming and felt a little ripped off . Will not visit again .

Waiters not attentive and we had to keep reminding / re-ordering basics like an empty glass and drinks. We had been on the table for almost an hour before one of my friends got her mocktail after having to ask twice. Another one had to wait for a long while before having wine because there hadn't been enough glasses on the table, again we had to remind and ask again after a long wait. We also had to wait for and ask twice for a refill of the wine bottles. On top of it all, they started clearing the table when i hadn't finished my meal (there was still sharing food on the table which they took away). I appreciate it was busy but for the place and the prices we paid you'd expect a little more attention to basic details, so unfortunately i will rate it as poor service.
Food was OK. Starters were really nice, the main course wasn't as authentic as i expected it to be.
Atmosphere and interior was very nice.

Not the first time at CK because the food is so good, in my opinion. First class service from the servers. My only minor irritant was the cold air con which kept on blowing over.

Will be back, Thanks CK.

Whilst the food was quite nice, I was quite disappointed about the portion sizes.
Not only that but the restaurant itself was incredibly loud, there was a large group dining who spent a long time standing around talking extremely loud. There was no effort to move the larger group further from the other dinners and we couldn’t hear ourselves speaking.

As a result, the service was so slow. We couldn’t even get attention from the staff to pay the bill and just leave! Incredibly disappointed as we had come for a birthday meal.

Having been to Cinnamon Kitchen on many occasions this visit was very disappointing. Whilst the food was good, it was lukewarm and the plates were cold, what restaurant services cold plates? We complained that the starter was lukewarm and could the main be hot, unfortunately it was not. Whilst our waiter was understanding, the management did not seem to care about their customers. There were three senior managers and not one asked us about our food or whether we had had a good time. Sadly we will not be coming back.

Having eaten at the serene library-like ambiance of the Cinnamon Club, this was a joyfully noisy atmosphere with everyone obviously enjoying their food. The food was of the same quality as the Club. I especially recommend the Kentish Saddle of Lamb - what a tour de force!

Lovely food. A bustling, busy Friday night at this place. Have visited few times before and always very good food. Today was no exception- stunning food & even ordered a takeaway too.

My only gripe is we ordered a portion of kebabs for us and we got 2. In the takeaway portion they gave 3!

If you want to taste heaven in every bite order the peshwari naan & kaali daal.

The food was incredible. The service was mostly great, especially the female waitress. She was so attentive and realised we were there for a birthday resulting in a birthday dessert! Santosh’s food was excellent. One of the male waiters seemed to be having an off day but overall our experience was fantastic and we would recommend
