Squaremeal Review of Cinnamon Bazaar ?

Replacing Mexican favourite La Perla, Cinnamon Bazaar spices up Covent Garden's foodie hotspot Maiden Lane. The latest venue from Vivek Singh’s Cinnamon Collection, this is the group's most casual format yet and also the first new project since it was acquired by Ranjit Singh Boparan (Giraffe, Harry Ramsden, Fishworks) in January 2016. The budget menu revolves around different sized sharing plates, snacks and chaats (street food), with sides such as creamy black dal, mopped up with roti or paratha. Dishes were a lucky dip. Crispy bonda stuffed with Calcutta crab in a chickpea batter and papdi chaat topped with tangy tamarind and yogurt were winners, but lumpen onion dumplings and dry chicken wings failed to impress. Top honours went to double-cooked 'Koorg-style' pork belly, which was succulent and judiciously spiced. There's an Indian-style afternoon tea every day from 3-6pm while the cocktails, courtesy of Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka Mr Lyan), raise the bar; we loved the mango-infused Gin Julep. Colourful drapes and painted walls in the high room recreate the bustle of an Indian market, with plenty of noise and somewhat shaky service when it's busy.

Lunch Time Set Menu in January

by   (1)

Jan 2017

I highly anticipated my birthday lunch at Cinnamon Bazaar, having heard wonderful things about the Cinnamon Restaurant group, and eyeing up the menu numerous times before arriving. My boyfriend and I opted to try the lunchtime set menu so as to get a taste of different things on the menu. At £16 it is extremely reasonably priced for three, very good sized courses. I opted for the lamb kebab, followed by the pork belly curry and finished off with the cardamon creme brulee. My boyfriend ordered...

Crowded and expensive

Jan 2017

Don't get me wrong, the food was good (especially the crab pakoras as a starter), but it was fairly overpriced. The £16 lamb dish was very small. The tables were cramped together, and I was asked to move seats 3 times. I won't be going back..

Indian again

by   (1)

Dec 2016

This was my second visit to Cinnamon Bazaar in the few weeks it has been open. This time we took the children who also thoroughly enjoyed the food, Service still needs to pick up a little as we were left having to ask for things a couple of times even though, being a Sunday night, the restaurant was not at all busy. Pricing soon adds up as the chat and starter dishes are too good to leave out. Portion sizes are mixed depending on the dish which can be confusing if trying to split between...
