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.

I was taken to this lovely restaurant by a business colleague. I had never heard of it and actually had suggested to go elsewhere. I was so wrong! This is a great ( much more than a good, a great) restaurant. Flavors in dishes are complex combinations of spices that are tasty, not spicy. Not recipes that I've ever made,... More

We really enjoyed our evening at the Cinnamon Club. My wife is gluten free and we both chose the taster menu. The chefs dealt with this issue with ease and the menu was varied and wonderfully tasty.

I've been to this place a few times for chai and have always been impressed with their service and menu until last Summer.

The Maitre’d and the customer service manager were so solicitous I think they thought I must be a food critic. But the server was sullen and in need of a bath. Seriously, BO in a restaurant with these prices? We had the tasting menu and only half of the courses were at all interesting. My wife ordered her beef medium... More

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
