Friendly but nothing special....

Was left feeling slightly disappointed after reading good reviews. Service was slow for a Saturday night, the food was takeaway standard and both it and the wine I felt were overpriced.....one prawn in a sharing platter for two, 4 tiny pieces of monkfish in a monkfish jalfrezi and to cap it all, no... read more

Was left feeling slightly disappointed after reading good reviews. Service was slow for a Saturday night, the food was takeaway standard and both it and the wine I felt were overpriced.....one prawn in a sharing platter for two, 4 tiny pieces of monkfish in a monkfish jalfrezi and to cap it all, no lemon in the g&t! Disappointed.

My husband and I visited Cinnamon for a Saturday night out. Food was good, we had the sharing platter to start which was very good and plentiful this would have done me for a full meal! My main was good but extremely oily. The staff were very attentive and polite however the place was extremely cold ! They sat us... More

I like my Indian food. I have sampled many UIndian Restaurants. Cinnamon is very high up on my lifetime ranking, and the relaxed, welcoming atmosphere only adds to that. Give it a try!

My wife and I ate here during a stay at the Slieve Donard. It's just at the end of the drive so is really convenient. The food was nice and tasty and the place was nicely decorated and warm. Drinks were reasonably priced and the service was excellent. The only slight downside was that when my wife asked for her... More

We have been here previously and absolutely loved it. We thought we would try the Sunday buffet this time and that was a mistake. The food choice was quite limited in comparison to other indian buffets we have tried eg no poppadoms, spicy onions etc and all of the starters had a max of 4 bits of whatever in them... More

My wife and I decided to try out the 'All you can Eat' buffet tonight. Good range of starters. The tastiest onion bhaji I have ever had - big, not overcooked (as so many are)and lightly spiced; delicious. The pakoras and samosas were beautifully spiced and the samosa pastry light and crispy. Tikka chicken thighs were flavorsome and tender. The... More

The menu is unusually short by Indian restaurant standards but, having been their twice, their dishes all taste and look individual. Service is prompt & efficient. Overall it was one of the best curries I gave eaten in a long while
