Cinnamon Soho 22

Squaremeal Review of Cinnamon Soho ?

Launched in 2012, this is the fun little offshoot of Vivek Singh's high-rolling Cinnamon Collection. Vibrant artworks and primary colours adorn the cosy two-level venue, while dishes are cheaper and cheekier than at Westminster's aristocratic Cinnamon Club. The menu opens with 'Balls!' ("tasty" little fried globes with dips and fillings such as crab and curry leaf), before checking off grills, curries and biryanis, with influences stretching from Indo-Chinese chicken to ox-cheek vindaloo or the ever-popular buttery rogan josh shepherd's pie. Elsewhere a grilled 'fat' chilli arrives stuffed with tangy paneer crumbs, while pork belly with honey and chilli glaze provides a kick subverting the Cinnamon tradition. To finish, an unusual savoury dessert in beetroot halwa spring rolls, or round off with a cocktail – Bhangra Bubbles combines rum, Champagne, Chambord and spiced syrup. A new breakfast menu includes spicy masala omelettes and kedgeree, while readers also rate the "great-value" set lunch.

Lovely authentic restaurant

Had a fantastic birthday meal here at Cinnamon soho. The chickpea cakes were gorgeous, the kofta was divine. I would recommend this restaurant as a fantastic alternative to the (more expensive) sister restaurants Cinnamon Club and Cinnamon Kitchen.

I have been to Cinnamon Soho thrice now ! My office is nearby and since the day I tried the afternoon tea I've been eager to try almost every dish on their menu! The ambiance is really nice, the cuisines are "classic British with an Indian twist " as they say - and I totally agree ! If someone has never tried Indian you should surely start with trying out at Cinnamon Soho. The environment setting is really chic and nice. Guess I'll surely book their Christmas Special this year!...

We had a delicious dining experience here at Cinnamon Soho. Whilst the decor is not up to the standard of the ‘Mother Ship’ the Cinnamon Club, it does have that ‘soho’ slightly shabby chic feel. Definitely better to be sitting in the dining room on the ground floor rather than the rather depressing basement. There was nothing however, depressing about the food. We started with the speciality balls – a selection of different flavours – all with complimenting chutneys/sauces. We then had the rump...

It was such an ordinary experience, considering this was the younger sibling of the great Cinnamon Club, didn't care for the space/decor, which is secondary anyways, but worst of all, I didn't like my lamb curry! Sainsbury's does a better microwavable lamb, and it was recommended by my waiter, their lamb I mean. The food is what counts, I rarely ever go to a restaurant for its atmosphere, nearly always to try its food, so my friend's chicken briyani was really quite good, generous and tasty, but...

Very disappointing

by   (2)

Dec 2013

I was looking forward to this as I have never had a bad meal at the Cinnamon Club but I could not have been more wrong. Our waiter was inefficient, but seemed to be the most experienced person on the floor the night we were there. The starter of assorted fried balls was excellent but the chicken main courses we chose were bland and not particularly well cooked (although my daughter liked her grilled king prawns). Probably better to have the set meal at the Cinnamon Club: better food, service and...

Fab food, setting more suited to lunch than dinner perhaps

by   (1)

Oct 2013

So we booked the Square Meal offer and weren't disappointed. The food was fantastic, flavourful, spicy (in the case of the chicken) and delicious. Special mention for the sticky toffee pudding with ginger and banana ice cream – we could easily have eaten another (each) Charming waiters, efficient service; only slight downside was that the dining room's very low key and despite our reservation being for 1.30, it didn't start to get busy till well after 2.30. Shame as it's a gem

Cool, friendly Soho style Indian restaurant

Jul 2013

Go here if you want quirky, cool and relaxed service in fun settings. I found this restaurant while exploring the kingly street bars and my oh my I have become a regular specially for their Lingly posh seekh kebab and great take away lunch menus. Awesome food and best for the price you pay. Recently went for dinner and managed to try their new tasting menu and I must admit, it was truly gorgeous… Perfect for families, business and friends who want to have a good laugh and not worry about dressing...

Best Indian restaurant in Soho London

by   (3)

Apr 2013

How can one default after having opened two successful Indian restaurants in london. cinnamon Soho is undoubtedly the best of the three from Cinnamon family by Vivek Singh. Recently met in at Westin Mumbai for one of the Taste events he was invited for. Evidently the man lives up to his name and redefined Indian cuisine in a spectacular way. On my visit and especially after reading reviews on Squaremeal and toptable, i figured people have had concerns about the service and the decor. hence I must...

I can't give enough good praise to this beautiful Indian eaterie. The food is the absolute star of the show at Cinnamon Kitchens sister restaurant. The decor is trendy and casual and the service can be described in the same way. The highlight of the dinner I have to say was the bhangra burger with 3 heavenly dips. The spices used in the mince was spectacular and if everything else had been bad this dish still would have been enough to return for. The selection of balls were also a delight, choosing...

Having been a fan of Westminster’s Cinnamon Club, I decided to try Cinnamon Soho for Friday lunch, hoping to get the weekend off to a good start. There were three options: a rapid lunch with the curry of the day for £7.50; a two-course lunch for £15 (three for £18); and the regular a’ la carte. Having booked in advance, I was shown to a great table for four next to the bar but with lots of space around us and which allowed us to sit adjacent to each other. Some of the smaller tables looked a bit...
