Waited over an hour for tastless, bland, watery, extremely poor food. Sat next to an office party whose wait for food had bern filled by booze that had fuelled their bad language. Should have left after the half hearted attempt at popodoms. Exited as swiftly as possible grudingly leaving twenty quid and a complaint without an apology.

We have always enjoyed the food from this restaurant but after a few attempts at home delivery today is finally the very last time I will be ordering. They always say it will be an hour and I always end up ringing after 1.5hrs. and still wait another hour for the delivery. Its not good enough and I won't be... More

What a superb menu ,so authentic. We really had a lovely meal and it was presented attractively! .Sadly the lighting is a bit harsh ,spoiling what could really be a very cosy, romantic restaurant with all that terracotta upholstery to compliment the interior . Would certainly eat here again. Thankyou

Not knowing the area and having to spend the night for an early ferry the next morning we stumbled across the "Cinnamon Island". It was a Wednesday night and the place was deserted which was a slight concern, but being hungry and happy with Indian cuisine we decided to give it a try. The welcome was good, we were shown...

I usually order a takeaway from this restaurant as they do a good deal with discounts if you pay by cash and collect it yourself. They usually provide me with complimentary poppadoms and dips. I have also had meals at the restaurant. They will serve a complimentary slice of orange to cleanse your palate after your meal before desserts. I... More

I've had sit down and takeaways from Cinnamon Island and never previously felt the need to comment, until now. The in-restaurant service is usually much better than the takeaway. That said it does depend on how busy they are. They just don't seem to cope well under pressure and the food suffers. Take away is generally a disaster, particularly so... More

A quick curry in Dover was all we wanted - this was the worst dining experience for a long time. With hindsight, we should've done a U turn as we entered and encountered an unpleasant mouldy smell. But no - we gave them the benefit of the doubt, overlooked the cheap plastic table covers, ignored the little black flies buzzing... More

We went to Cinnamon Island this evening for a meal for my birthday. We were served by Poonam who was very quick to take our drinks orders and make us feel at home. When looking at the menu we found we could do a banquet night on a Tuesday or Wednesday that gave us one starter, main, side and rice... More
