Not as good as is made out to be. The food is pricey and you need to be carefull when ordering. So you read through the menu and place your order. But then they ask " and would you like " whatever with it. What you dont realise is the "whatever" is actually additional cost to your meal. Our two... More

We live in France and hadn't been back in th UK for over 12 months and one thing I miss is my once a week visit to my favourite Indian restaurant (Radjpoot in Taunton). We decided to overnight in Dover after 8 hours of travelling and another 4 hours to our destination so an Indian restaurant was a priority. Having... More

I'm so sad to be leaving a bad review as we have used cinnamon island a lot it's our only Indian takeaway, but I feel this is not their usual service and need to bring this to someone's attention. I ordered a takeaway order on the 29/11/2016 not only was our order 1 hour 30 minutes late, it was cold... More

Finally discovered this gem after several trips to Dover. Some of the best Indian food I've had, right at the top. Compliments to the chef. From my seat I could see dishes others were eating looked equally delicious. Freshly prepared, and it's worth waiting the longer than average for. The friendly staff, banter, and cozy size of the restaurant helps... More

A superb meal tonight with no less than 7 different dishes. Each one individually different from each other, with a range of flavours. Some hot and some mild. Poppadums' were fresh and the bread also freshly cooked. Service was very good and i must say after an absence of several months the food is better than ever.

Was looking to get in Italian but full up so went for this Indian instead. Really glad we did as the ambience was relaxing, the food excellent and the service and staff very friendly. Spoke to an elderly couple next to us who come down from Derbyshire three times a year and they always eat there!

I went with my father on our visit to Dover. Dad said the restaurant was calling him, and it's easy to see why! The service was wonderful and the food was amazing! Best Indian we've ever had! Our waiter was very nice and gave great recommendations about what to have. We will definitely go again next time we come to... More
