About Cinnamon Kitchen City

We’re big fans of chef Vivek Singh’s high-end modern Indian cuisine and this offshoot of his flagship Cinnamon Club earns him yet more applause. Like its sibling in Battersea, it’s been cleverly designed to suit its surrounds – in this case a former spice warehouse, done out in industrial-chic style. The decking outside is a bonus: perfect for alfresco dining whatever the vagueries of the weather, thanks to its covered courtyard.

Inside, the chefs prepare a series of “wonderful, aromatic” dishes, characterised by subtle spicing and knockout flavours. Our most recent visit showed off a reduced sized menu that loses nothing for being a touch smaller, packed as it is with Cinnamon classics. Highlights included both Madras hot shrimps with a curried yoghurt and chargrilled king prawns, juicy and blackened from the grill.

You won't find a better rendition of the deliciously savoury lamb seekh kebab, while the samosa chaat is a moreish rendition of a Punjabi street-food style samosa richly flavoured with curried chickpeas, juicy pomegranate arils and tangy tamarind chutney. To follow, grilled pink aubergine with sesame tamarind sauce and peanut crumble had unctuous depth, while the classic Lucknow-style chicken biryani is softly comforting, and delicate pan-seared cod is complemented rather than overpowered with a punchy Kerala curry sauce and zesty lemon rice.

Don't miss a dependable selection of hot, buttery breads, rice and creamy dhal and, if you've still got room, puds are beautifully done, our favourites being ginger toffee pudding with cinnamon ice cream or a superb kulfi. To drink, expect fruity Asian-inspired cocktails from the Anise Bar and a thoughtfully chosen wine list that includes a well-chosen selection of spice-friendly bottles. Factor in reliably good service and you have a City stalwart that’s well worth repeat visits and increasingly popular at weekends.

One of my favourites
There is nothing I would change, the service is excellent and the food is quite simply heaven on a plate. A little pricey for the average budget though.

Lovely Venezie Wine Dinner !
Never been to Italy, though I've heard about Venezie a lot. I had booked pretty early so I wouldn't miss my seat as there are only 16 spaces available ! We could see the dishes being prepared in the kitchen. The aroma tingles your senses and honestly the wine plus the food are worth the praise ! The chef really did a great job thumbs up ! Will be going back again !

Buzzy space, innovative and well-cooked food – what's not to like? Well, it's let down badly by waiting staff who try their best, but just can't cope. The restaurant was busy but not full, but the staff were rushed off their feet. Perhaps there just aren't enough of them, perhaps it's poor supervision. But if you're aiming at the level of 98 quid for a tasting menu, you need to get the staffing right. Good – but needs to lift it's game.

Valentines Day
The first time I had dined at this restaurant. The Valentine's Menu was 5 courses. High and low points in no particular order. The cauliflower cappucino was luxurious and spicy. The rack of lamb, one of the best main courses we had both ever eaten, the sauce was amazing. Service attentive but not over-powering. Loud and bright, which wasnt very romantic. The seafood starter was very citric and hardly any seafood. Rather disappointing compared with the rest of the meal was the dessert, dry souffle. Plus v minus I would go again to see if things are different away from the set course menu and off course to have the lamb again.
