The "refined" City offshoot of Vivek Singh's Cinnamon group is housed in an old spice warehouse, although its sleek decor, gentle house music and open kitchen are bang up to date – much like the clientele who flock here for upbeat contemporary cooking at "reassuringly inexpensive" prices. The six-course tasting menu is an excellent option: organic smoked salmon with eye-watering pea wasabi ignites the palate, ahead of plump Goan-spiced prawns in a rich ochre sauce.

To finish, surprising desserts might include cumin profiteroles with cardamom shrikhand (strained yoghurt) – although sorbets await for those who need cooling down. Service is "really impressive" too.

Rather than follow his father into engineering, Bengal-born Vivek Singh chose a career in the kitchen, acquiring his classical training at five-star hotels including New Delhi’s Oberoi. In 2001, he brought his talents to London, where he opened The Cinnamon Club in Westminster with Iqbal Wahhab. Having established this clubby establishment as one of London’s finest Indian restaurants, he opened City outlet Cinnamon Kitchen followed by smart-casual sibling Cinnamon Soho in 2012.
