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.

Went here for a romantic birthday meal. Stunning venue and would fully recommend the taster menu. A superb menu, not a single poor course. The service also matched the quality of food. Will return

We booked a special deal for four persons via OpenTable - unfortunately, two of us were running late and had not yet arrived half an hour past the booked time. The staff informed us that they'd have to take our orders soon and that the two missing people would have to order à la carte. In the end, we could... More

Came recommended by a friend but we felt a bit intimidated by the prices on line. We used the early evening deal and had a fantastic meal to the point where we spent a bit more on booze and concluded that when we come back in the autumn we will eat off the full menu. We hadn't anticipated the connection... More

This is an expensive restaurant, portions are small compared to other similar status restaurants. The food quality and fusion was good but it was served cold e.g soup. We were eight of us; four who were offered very limited choices for vegetarian. Ambiance and service was good but let down being cramped, too many tables and limited space to move.

Great choice for dinner with friends located in Westminster. I love Indian food and really enjoyed this more sophisticated menu. Excellent blend of flavours and quality ingredients in a really atmospheric setting. Not cheap, but this is Central London! Great bar area downstairs so worth arriving with a bit if time to spare.

I used to borrow books from the former library where this very classy restaurant is now located. My wife and I went there for my birthday and it certainly was a classy joint. Expensive, but then you definitely get what you pay for. We ordered the tasting menu, which offered the best from the a la carte menu, but in... More

This is an expensive Central London restaurant and you pay for what you get! Good food and attentive service. But in the rush to make profit why do they cram so many tables in such that I had to move mine to let my wife out? A few less tables would give the space the price deserved.
