Square Meal Review of Cinnamon Kitchen ?

‘A special kind of Indian’ – and one of the first restaurants to set up shop on Devonshire Square – this slick, industrial-chic offshoot of Westminster’s patrician Cinnamon Club continues to impress City diners with its ‘outstanding, inspirational and memorable food’. Chef Abdul Yaseen has worked with head honcho Vivek Singh for more than a decade, and it shows in finely tuned dishes defined by pinpoint spicing: try the steamed lobster dumplings, ‘tantalising’ rabbit and corn curry, smoked saddle of Kent lamb with rogan josh sauce or showpiece tandoori-spiced red deer with pickled vegetables. Also note the grilled platters, biryanis to share and top-notch sides including smoked aubergine crush. ‘Poor acoustics’ can make it better for pleasure than serious business, and the feel is more shirt sleeves than smart suits, but service can’t be faulted and there’s always a ‘great buzz’ – especially if you join the boozy throngs on the appealing courtyard terrace.

Loyalty card No. Website   After 5 + City Pig’s analysis I was invited to go to Cinnamon Kitchen with a few friends as there was a Toptable deal for £30 for 3 courses.I knew that the cuisine would be modern Indian cuisine but had no other expectations. As we entered the restaurant were greeted by two polite ladies. The service was efficient and polite throughout the whole meal. Although, my friend had his main course delayed due to some mistake on presentation caused by the waiter somehow. Nevertheless, it showed how they were cautious of high standards and was very apologetic. The Toptable deal is limited but I was happy to sample the grilled chicken vindaloo with papaya salad for starters and a roasted seabass for my main. If you are looking for rich flavours then I think you may dislike the style here. It is definitely on the lighter and healthier side of Indian cooking - the modern way. The dishes are presented beautifully and emphasis can this can be seen with each dish.I was impressed how well the fish was cooked with the Indian spices in the lentil salad. The chicken skewers were satisfying. I was a bit disappointed with the dessert options on the Toptable deal. It was either fruit or a mousse with pomegranate. However, the mousse was not as smooth as I anticipated it should be. However, there were nicer desserts on the al la carte which we were lucky to be given one from Vivek Singh the chef and owner. I think this was the pistachio cake with clotted cream ice cream. This was really amazing and highly recommended.Overall, the experience was enjoyable and Vivek Singh came to speak to us which was a pleasant surprise. I recommend coming here and you will be pleasantly surprised how friendly the service is and the quality of the food.

    Her Favourite Food :: Cinnamon Kitchen

    Where: Liverpool StreetCuisine: Indian/FusionSwank Levels: 5/5I don’t think I’ve been to a swankier looking restaurant than Cinnamon Kitchen in Liverpool Street. It’s location is jaw dropping; aptly hidden away in a corner of a former warehouse of the East India Company which covers Devonshire Square, this covered outside space is stunning, especially at night. Shops, restaurants, bars, water features, Art Deco style benches and even a foosball table can be found lining this beautifully lit up square.This all means that about people can linger here late into the night because it is covered and always drier and warmer than the outside.Moving to the stylish interior of the restaurant, the walls in this dining space are lined with soft pewter hues with shimmering mother-of-pearl patterns across them, exuding a classy yet quirky atmosphere. A tandoori-grill bar fills the far end of the restaurant and is visible by all diners who can see the chefs prepare their choices to order.Read more »
