We visited this restaurant and found it SPOT ON! Delicious food, genuine service and nice ambient. I think we may have found our regular place to eat.

We popped in to Newcastle whilst on holiday in Dundrum down the road and ate at New Cinnamon. The restaurant is opposite a fancy hotel and golf club and very near the sea front and has a good entrance, so all looked good. However, the atmosphere was not to my taste....the table was sticky and there were no nice touches... More

Been to this restaurant several times . Don't know who wrote the.few bad reviews. BUT. All I we can say is that having eaten at many, many restaurants at home and abroad, this is great for location, great for food quality and great for friendliness and service. Do try!

My husband and I got a takeout from the restaurant while on holiday last week. My chicken bhuna was absolutely delicious, as good as I've had anywhere but my husband's lamb dish was a bit disappointing, the lamb wasn't particularly tender and he had asked for it to be quite hot and neither dish was. We paid over £18 for... More

My husband and I visit the New Cinnamon Indian restaurant frequently and seeing some of the negative reviews being posted I feel compelled to write a review myself! All I have to say is that the service is second to none... We are always made to feel welcome and the manager not only explains the dishes but advises us. Our... More

Have been to this restaurant many times and could not fault it.. Both the food and the service never fail to surpass expectations. The staff are lovely and very attentive. The manager is very friendly and goes out of his way to make you feel welcome. Have tried Indian food in several restaurants and never been impressed or felt any... More

Tonight my mum, aunt and I went to Cinnamon to celebrate my A Level results. The food, atmosphere and staff where top quality. At the end of our meal we requested the bill, and as I went to the toilet, the manager came over to ask my mum what my name was as he had something for me.. When I... More

However the food is amazing! Can't believe the quality of this place and it being based in Newcastle a must for everyone to attend!!... More

As always, one of the best indian meals I have had anywhere. We had the Chicken Tikka Masala (don't be put off by the luminous red colour - it is delicious), Lamb Rogan Josh, Onion Bhajis (crispy on the outside as they should be), Tarka Dal (lentil curry - not on the menu, though it should be), naan bread and...
