Description: Challenging the notion that Indian cuisine can only be created using age-old recipes and ideas, The Cinnamon Club demonstrates how evolution and adaptation can create a new chapter in gourmet excellence. Housed in the Grade II listed former Westminster Library, a stone’s throw from London’s Westminster Abbey, The Cinnamon Club’s neo-colonial feel fits perfectly with its distinctive style of Indian haute cuisine.

Let me begin by saying this is a really lovely place, full of history and the atmosphere is great. I had the prawns as my main and whilst really good, not an hour later I had developed severe cramps. It's the only place I had eaten out at all week. The next day I was quite ill with D&V and... More

I've wanted to go to the Cinnamon Club for some time following recommendations from colleagues and eventually arranged to go with my wife, sister in law and her partner, the latter two working in the restaurant industry. We all went for the tasting menu and premier wines, priced at £115 per head. This included 7 courses as per the menu... More

We visited for a late lunch on a Saturday. The food was brilliant. Service was exemplary - everyone very attentive. We decided on the set menu as we wanted to try many different dishes. The mussels were lovely. The lamb main course was cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend Cinnamon Club and we will return.

overall the cinnamon club is resting on its laurels- service is haphazard at best. and you can tell that the manager only comments when the review is decent and ignores real criticism. The food is decent but too many staff running around and no one takes responsibility for service. random wait staff walk by and top off the wine glasses... More

It's a number of years since I last dined at the Cinnamon Club and the food experience remains as good as ever. Portions are not huge but very rich with deep flavours and unusual combinations. I started with a spicy chicken breast with some gorgeous prawns as my main course. My partner fared even better with a succulent lamb starter... More

My husband and I visited here in December, as lovers of Indian food, we were really looking forward to it. We hoped that it would still give us the real spicy feel that you might get from your favourite local Indian but with that extra special edge. We were not disappointed! My tandoori cod starter was amazing and my husband... More

We visited this restaurant not so long ago and absolutely loved it! The place had buzzing atmosphere and the food was excellent. I had the cardamom served with mint chilli korma, its a must try. Portions are a little small and food is a little pricey, but other than that its a great indian restaurant to try. Found this restaurant... More

There's no doubting the quality of the food; all of the party were deeply impressed by the intensity of the flavours and presentation. However, this was seriously let down by poor service. Difficult to know where to begin, so in order: delayed table despite a booking; indifferent hostess response; table above a thumping private disco without any member of staff... More
