We visited Cinnamon for the first time in some years and were disappointed. Slightly hustly, slightly rude service; blandish food; limited choice of beers. A generally lacklustre ambience for a Friday night and suffers markedly in comparison with Dildar, a consistently decent Indian restaurant in nearby Wheathampstead. A sense they are going through the motions and some attention required.

The food is consistently tasty, which is the number one measure, surely (Jerra is better on its good days but frequently awful). The problem with Cinnamon is that it falls in to too many cliches. - the decor would not be out of place in the 1990s - an army of waiting staff - difficult to predict if your meal... More

Having seen the reviews perhaps they had an off day with service but let's face it we can all have a bad day!! Now to the food, it was tasty, enjoyable and a touch different to the norm and no way bland like some of the other curry houses in Harpenden. Open minded views are always important.. Enjoy and relax..

A return visit on a Wednesday evening with 15 friends. We were the only customers all evening. Friendly welcome. Pleasant surroundings, with air conditioning, that was much appreciated on a very warm evening. For around £15 per head excluding drinks they provided pappadams, starters and a selection of main courses. I enjoyed the starters, but they were not to everyone's... More

Delivery driver tried to charge me for delivery when I live under 3 miles away. When I disagreed and showed him on Google maps, he argued with me. Eventually he backed down. When I phoned the restaurant to complain I was called a 'bad customer anyway'. Unbelievable!!!! Whatever happened to 'the customer is always right'?? Food was actually quite good... More

After trying 3 other Indian places in Harpenden and being told they didn't have high chairs this place was a welcome change! The food was absolutely perfect, but ask for the butter chicken without broad beans. (Unless you love large beans in your curry!) Appetizers came quickly and were delicious. Each dish had a distinct and different flavour. Mains were... More

I've had a number of curries from Cinnamon and have yet to be disappointed. I'm always warmly greeted on arrival and my order taken promptly. The food is delicious, especially the super hot chicken curry dish and the naan bread is so tasty. A firm favourite!

We were warmly welcomed, offered drinks and given menus. Food ordered we were left alone. Food arrived and was served, almost slung on the table by a surely waiter. Not the best Indian food Ive ever had, but enjoyable venue

We booked as a group of 10. Arrived at 7.15 and it took 30 mins to receive our drinks after which we placed orders. Nearly an hour later we started our meal. VERY long waits at every stage. I dread to think what time the two groups who arrived after us must have eaten. Can't help but feel the menu... More

We literally just had a takeaway delivered! We usually use Massalla village who are great, friendly and reasonable ! My husband ordered the food, the person taking the order was rude, he wouldn't tell us the cost of the food and also said we had to pay cash!! When the food arrived (cold) we had our £41.50 ready which we... More
