It looks very unassuming, not the sort of place you'd expect to find some fabulous Indian food. All the standards are on the menu along with a variety of different regional dishes. The service was excellent. We originally went on December 30th and then again on January 10th this year- we had to go back and see if it was... More

After a day hiking over de cliffs of Dover, we had a meal in this restaurant. I much confess I have never been to an Indian Restaurant before, so my reference lacks experience. Nevertheless: we had a very very good meal. At the end of the evening the bill was only 80 pounds (including tip)for which 3 persons had a... More

I usually go to Chapter 8, the only Chinese in town, which is a pretty good eat all yo can buffet place but it was closed for a refurb. So on a wet and cold Saturday evening it's take away kebabs, the 'spoons or BetFred. Amazing that in a town this size it's easier to place a bet than get... More

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
