Great Indian

Had the nicest lamb dansak i've ever had at Cinnamon. Great view of the sea from my balcony table, nice service from the owner who was a gentleman. The food was outstanding, Indian food at its best! Then over to the Percy French for a nice pint!

Read the reviews on Trip Advisor before our visit...not sure who is writing them!! The building smelt damp 4 othe customers at eight o'clock on a Friday probably said it all.

Never had an Indian meal in my life until i came here. Thought id try Madras, absolutely loved it, now i go back nearly every weekend. Tried a few other places but they couldnt compete with Cinnamon Spice. Staff is brilliant, food is delicious and the bar downstairs is perfect for before and after your meal. Cant praise the place...

We love an Indian meal and we're staying at a nearby hotel for the weekend so thought we would give this place a try. We arrived at 7pm and the place was pretty quiet. We thought oh oh. We ordered our meal and as the starters came out the restaurant started to fill with people. The restaurant it's self is... More

I had never tried Indian cuisine until recently as i don't particularly like spicy food.

The staff are very helpful and always suggest... More
