“Exceeded Expectations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011

Went on a week-night with friends - had booked which was just as well as the restaurant was full. Late enough for the rug-biters to be on their way out!
Had to wait for nearly an hour and a half with only poppadums to asuage our hunger but it was well worth the wait. The food was simply wonderful - tasty, beautifully presented and very, very fresh. Obviously everything is cooked to order - so be aware that you will have to wait. Trainee waiter was hilarious - echoes of Manuel in Fawlty Towers! Asked for wine, he brought beer etc etc.... The manager is in total control and oversees things perfectly. It was our first visit but we will go again and again I am sure.

“Lives up to its reputation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

We did not pre-book our meal arriving Saturday evening so of course the restaurant was busy. However, we were offered a table immediately & although we did have a slightly longer wait between courses this was not a problem & only to be expected. The food was lovely and the service good, my only regret was that I was too full to eat it all.
Would certainly have returned had we have stayed two weeks.

“Spicetastic!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2011

When we arrived at Cinnamons we were given a warm welcome. We went on a Saturday early evening and were lucky to get a table, so we would strongly advise booking. It was an interesting menu which contained the regular options along with a whole series of original and more unusual dishes. Portions of food were quite large and nicely presented. The food was delicious. Staff were attentive and there was a lively atomsphere in the restaurant. A five star experience!
