We got two lattes and two mochas. Service was fast and pleasant and the Muffins were great. There are other coffee spots near by but this was a good choice

We went here for a change today, having been going to the Aladin for some years. The papadoms were fresh, as was the the onion salad in the pickle that went with it - you could tell that the coriander was very freshly chopped. Big plus in my book. The meal came up fairly quickly - we hadn't even finished... More

The food was good and the service OK, though a bit too patronising OK. What really spoilt the evening was finding that they had deliberately added 10 pound to the bill. We were pretty tired as we had travelled a long way that day and didn't realise until we got home. We had checked the addition at the hotel but... More

It wasn't the worst curry I've ever had but it was by no means the best either. The service wasn't great as it was a packed (Thursday night) which I would have taken to imply that the restaurant was going to be great, but I think this one is a trip advisor trap. It has high ratings on here so... More

My relatives were visiting from Australia and so we decided to go to Brick Lane for a slice of multicultural London life - what a great choice Cinnamon was to showcase amazing British Asian flavours. I have eaten there many times before so I knew what to expect. The staff were as usual accommodating and attentive, and the food was... More

really tasty indian food and a great variety of dishes. if you're in a large group you can normal negotiate a discount. good too because you can byo alcohol. it's a very loud place so if you're after an intimate setting it's not the place for you.

The last time I went to Cinnamon was a week ago but last summer I was a frequent customer. The food is excellent, nothing to say about it. Peshawari naan is my favorite although I think they slightly changed the recipe from last summer (please do it as before, it was better!!). Last summer I have always eaten over there... More

I visited after huge reviews from locasl, however, upon arriving I was told it was now run by Moroccans - and believe me no dish we had tasted like an Indian Dish.. watery and tasteless.. keep walking.

The restaurants at this part of Brick Lane have some pretty assertive touts competing with each other to lure you in, so decisions have to be made quickly. This one encouraged us with a promise of 20% reduction on the bill... Why not just publish the actual price, I wondered? The food was fine, but we had to go to... More

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighborhood Profile
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
