Ordered a fair amount of food from here. About £30 worth. The food took an hour to come. Okay fine. Busy night right? However when the food arrived the curry had exploded in the bag. Over the rest of the food. When I called them...so they could fix the issue they where rather rude. Telling me it wasn’t possible for it to have done that, while I’m stood looking at my Broken popadoms and soggy naan. When the food did arrive for a second time (After another hour) the quality was mediocre to say the least. The prawns in the butter curry where burnt. One naan was very undercooked. I don’t usually write bad reviews for places but I was so disappointed (it was a treat for my boyfriend and we didn’t end up eating till gone 9, I ordered at 6.30)More

Was given an estimate of 40-50 mins for delivery. The food turned up after 1.5 hours. When it arrived the meat and potato dishes were only half full and the starter contained far too much salt and was a little “off”.

When we ordered a takeaway this evening from Cinnamon we were told there would be a 50/55 minute wait. After 75 minutes I phoned them and was told we were next on delivery. 15 minuets later food arrived. My husband had Lamb Tikka Rogan Josh...which he always enjoys. It consisted of lamb and sauce but no tomatoes etc. Disappointing. I had King Prawn Biryani which, whilst tasty, had a stodgy consistency which is not the norm. Not sure if they have a new chef but the overall experience was not of the usual standard. Pity.More

....tasting slop. Quite probably the worst curry I've experienced in many a long year. Difficult to believe anyone goes there twice.

We tried this restaurant when it1st opened and was very dissapointed, despite living a 5 minute walk away have never used again. Ordered tonight via the pub they now have a relationship with. Though on price terms curry and a nan for £5 is great,...the bhuna was bland and runny, the nan to be fair was great but will never use again.More
