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.

Birthday meal

Went here for a birth day meal, was pleasantly surprised but did expect a bit more. The food was lovey and the decor was modern. Would definitely this place.

There are no words for how good this is, if you like beautifully prepared food with a south asian kick then you can't go wrong. The gin based cocktails are to die for. I loved it and the library setting strewn with candles and rose petals makes it very special.

I went there for a business meeting/late lunch. The menu was extensive and I ended up with Southern India style curry.

I've been staying in London with work recently and dined out in this restaurant for an evening meal. a cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. I had chicken dish for starter with a lamb dish for my main course. Food was out of this world and I will definitely return.

The traditional setting of the Westminster Old Library converts well to a restaurant, with a particularly nice lounge for pre-dinner drinks, and what looked like very comfortable rooms for private parties. We were in the main dining space and tried the tasting menu, with the matched wines. The dishes were varied and all very good and the competently described wines... 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.
