In town for a university reunion we headed for the Cinnamon after a beers on campus and we were pleased with our choice. Warmly welcomed by the staff we were quickly seated and poppadoms aplenty arrived before our main orders were taken.
The red sauce on the Chicken Tikka Mossalla was alarming as other reviewers have said but the food was met with general acclamation. The sweeter dishes had a lot of coconut and cream but some like it this way. A warm atmosphere, clearly popular with local diners this old co-op building has been reinvigorated with this very good restaurant.

Attended on 29 October 2013 - the staff were amazingly polite and helpful. The food was hot,fantastic,tasty and plentiful.
The service was excellent.
The restaurant was very clean and I would definitely recommend it.
Complimentary brandy was even given to us at the end of our meal.
EXCELLENT!!!!

The waiters were very pleasant and tried to be helpful.
My main meal tandoori mixed grill was tepid and covered in a very strong red sauce which completely masked what you were eating visually and also in flavour. My friends meals were fine in flavour but were certainly not hot when we received them .On reflection perhaps I should have complained immediately but we were having a good chat and it was only my meal which was unpleasant it definitely did not have that freshly cooked feel to it rather reheat previously cooked meat and disguise it with sauce .I did tell my feelings to the waiter when he asked if everything was OK. They offered to replace my meal but it was not practicable to wait for another dish. The staff offered us complimentary drinks and said that the chef was new they did seem sorry.
Perhaps they were having a bad day but there was only about 6 other people in when we were there so there was little excuse for tepid food or perhaps that was why there were only a few people in.

By far the best Indian or Sunday Buffet that we have had. Food is excellent quality, plenty of choice, well priced and the staff are efficient and friendly.

Ok. Service patchy (some waiters good, others completely ignored us). We ordered a few fish dishes (we eat lots of flush) and the monkfish dish was definitely NOT monkfish, although we were charged £10 for the dish. Overall - there are much better places in Loughborough
