Tasting Indian food before, I felt this is of the best places to taste good and spicy flavours of Indian food in London. The staff service is quiet admirable and friendly. The prices are a bit high but it is worth when you look at what you get here.
Cinnamon club london has reinvented the cuisine from the storied subcontinent and developed a haute-Indian menu (amuse bouche and all) that you will not easily forget.
Cinnamon club london occupies the site of the Old Western Library and offers, high ceilings, wooden floors and elegant tableware. The food successfully marries Eastern flavour with European sensibilities. Standout dishes include lamb chetinnad (smoked lamb) and chargrilled partridge with moong kedgeree and green spices and a roast rack of ‘Oisin’ red deer with pickling spices, all beautifully presented. Cinnamon Club is definitely one of the best choices for premiere Indian cuisine.
Housed in a former Victorian library, Cinnamon Club has become a magnet for power-brokers and politicians. Expect a colonial-style atmosphere, with high ceilings, a gallery of books and leather seating adding to the clubby vibe. Service was as smooth as Indian silk, friendly and focused.
The Cinammon Club modern Indian cuisine is based on robust flavours from across the subcontinent all cooked to perfection.
Such quality doesn’t come cheap. A special-occasion establishment to savour.
I’ve always liked the cinnamon club, and been here a number of times – but until last week probably not for over year.
It has two bars – a relaxed library bar upstairs, which is good to meet people for business, and a club bar downstairs which has Bollywood movies and music downstairs, livelier and a great place to meet friends.
I was meeting old friends so we started there before moving upstairs to the restaurant.
The dining room used to be the old westminster library has a grand feel about it, and is a haunt of politicians at lunchtime, being so close to the government buildings and the houses of parliament.
I avoided the 6 course tasting menu with wines, as although I can recommend it, I was keen to remain relatively sober.
The food very modern sophisticated Indian food and a must try in you are in Westminster in the evening.
Indian cuisine at its best.Friendly staff, knowledgeable and helpful but not overbearing.I haven’t had many chances to taste Indian food before, so thought I’ll give it a go in a restaurant that was recommended by a friend, it was lovely, an experience that I will repeat soon!
My husband and I were lucky emough to visit this restaurant yesterday for a meal. It was a great experience although I wouldn’t say the food matched the huge price tags! We started with (me) Breast of Partridge in pickling spices… it was a little over cooked and tough to eat but still a wonderful taste to it and gorgeously presented. Husband had the plaice fillets with spiced crab which he really enjoyed. For main course I had the sea bass with chickpeas and green mango, wouldn’t go mad about it but it was again beautifully presented. Husband had the saddle of deer in sesame and Tamarind sauce… a little tough in parts but he thoroughly enjoyed it and the little bit I forced him to let me try was really tasty lol. The desserts were AMAZING!! I had the warm chocolate mousse with white chocolate icecream.. perfect and a chocoholics dream! My husband had the lemon tart with iced lemon cream and loved every mouthful! We were brought a THIRD dessert as a treat for our anniversary to share complements of the restaurant.. it was some kind of kittle sponge with a toffee type sauce and cinnamon ice cream.. very yummy AND a thin slab of dark chocolate with ‘Happy Anniversary’ piped on to it.. a really lovely touch and welcome suprise!
The service was fantastic, every member of staff so friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The surroundings are beautiful, it’s an amazing old building. A lovely place to go (if you can afford it!) for a special treat.
Thoroughly delicious refined modern indian food. Great value if you manage to pick up some of the special offers on the net, although it’s still a bit dear for a weekly outing.
Eating in a beautiful wood-lined library is a lovely twist. Don’t be fooled by the very proper-looking interior, the staff are absolutely fantastic – friendly and with just the right amount of service. It’s not far from the Houses of Parliament, which is why I thought it was a great place to bring someone who’s over in London on their travels. That’s what I did, and my friend was chuffed to see Big Ben at night after our sumptuous shared banquet.
My recommendation would be the mystifyingly spicy plaintain dumplings with beetroot chutney. The bread basket is also pretty sensational. Only reason this place doesn’t get 5 stars is that the desserts aren’t in the same level as the frankly knockout modern indian cuisine.
Dinner: around £32 per head for 3 courses (with special offers)
Would suit: small groups, couples, foodies with an eye for ambience
A fabulous meal in a lovely environment. We went relatively early at 6.30pm so very empty and placed in the corner but by 7.30pm it was packed.
We were given a free morsel a lovely potato ball deepfried.
I had the scottish king scallops covered in baby squid stirfiry on a bed of spinach and cauliflower puree - amazing!!
I then had the welsh saddle of lamb served with keema sag and finally a warm chocolate mousse with white chocolate icecream, followed by coffee which came with petite fours. I would love to go back and might try there special offers next time. I also had their zombie cocktail which contains absynthe which was quite refreshing
