Living locally we had not been here before so decided to give it a try. We were greeted by Shaz the owner and seated in the window with spectacular views up to the castle. Kingfisher beer is available on draught and you can tell the beer lines are kept immaculately clean. The glasses gleamed too. Great beer. Food was amazing.... More

Last minute decision to pop out for tea, we had seen the special​ offer £11.99 for 5 courses and we certainly wasn't disappointed, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the food was amazing, wasn't oily like some of the other places we had tried, highly recommended

This was our first time trying Cinnamon Island while staying in the area. We visited during off-peak hours around 17:00, we were the only patrons aside from some staff/family which were eating prior to the dinner rush. I find Indian restaurants have some of the best service and Cinnamon Island was no exception. The waitor seated us immediately and took... More

Went to this restaurant with a friend after the White Cliffs Beers Festival 2017. I had a delicious curry, billed as 'Staff curry - this is the curry we make for ourselves'[i.e. the staff]. Thinking these guys would know what's what when it came to curry, I ordered one, and it was excellent - hot, but not too hot, very... More

I have eaten in Cinnamon Island on a number of occasions and never been disappointed. The service is always timely and polite. I would recommend the chicken pathia and madras. Cinnamon Island serves the best Naan bread that I have ever eaten.

Restaurant is currently in progress of refurb and is currently looking stunning, once the £20,000 Murals get installed, it will make the restaurant look 100% authentic indian restaurant in India. Food is 10/10 - never been disappointed with the food in the last 5 years that... More

We were in Dover on route to France last Sunday and fancied an Indian meal if one was open on a Sunday evening. The only downside at all was that we were the only ones who had the same idea (guess Sunday isn't a popular time to visit). The food was excellent and very nicely presented, patrons were attentive,though not... More

Visited with friends on a cold Friday night in January. The restaurant was quiet but the reception was warm and the food excellent. Had poppadoms to start and house special curry with a delightful soft and fluffy naan for main. Slightly unusual setting (under renovation we were told) but would definately reccomend.

Have visited this restaurant twice, the last time being New Year's Eve 2016. On both occasions the staff have been very attentive, informative and friendly. The food is delicious and won't break the budget!
