There’s something almost karmic about the location of this new sibling to the Cinnamon Club, occupying as it does a former warehouse of the East India Company. And it occupies it stylishly, with walls in soft pewter hues inset with lustrous mother-of-pearl patterns.

The juxtaposition of exposed air-con ducts with intricate filigree light-shades works unexpectedly well under the lofty ceilings – as does the long tandoori-grill bar where chefs cook to order.

Most dishes emerging from the conventional kitchen are clever, not contrived. An intensely coloured but subtly spiced creamy sweetcorn soup was perfectly paired with corn on the cob kebabs.

Hot fruit kebabs were a joy: juicy sweetness coated with a tangy, hot chat-style masala, with apple, pineapple, starfruit and pear delivering a burst of sugar and spice. Fat red chillies stuffed with delicately seasoned hyderabadi lamb mince completed a triumphant trio of starters. Mains didn’t hit such high notes, but were still good.

Tender roasted black-leg chicken with a crust of pungent fenugreek leaves worked well; and pleasingly plump prawns with bengali kedgeree were both comforting and lively, as was a side order of masala-spiked mash. The menu might be fairly short, but the queue lining up for a taste of it was decidedly long.

Thoroughly enjoyable meal.

We visit London often and are usually disappointed when we eat out finding the restraunts rarely live up to the glowing reviews they some how accrue.

So it was with some pleasure that we encountered the Cinnamon Kitchen, the ambience and food, modern fusion was full of flavour and colour, I must mention in particular the chcken stew with coconut rice, a mixture of Indian and Thai flavours with succulent chicken and fragrant rice a good sized portion that was a delight with every mouthful. We ate from the set menu option £21 for 3 courses, very good value in my opinion, we will however venture in to the al a carte menu when next we visit.

A party of four we all considered this restraunt an unequivocal success and heartily recommend it to all.

Outstanding infrastructure and Amazing Tandoor Grill cum Bar. I really liked the aura of Cinnamon Kitchen which filled me with positive vibes. It's really perfect place for hangout.

The food is absolutely stunning! Surprising, beautiful flavours and very different - but as TO said, not contrived. No brownie points for service though - there was rather too much of it. A lot of hullabaloo about seating, what you can and can't order with a Time Out Card, and we had about 8 different people serve us. Another minus were some of the cocktails - but we may have been a bit unlucky in that respect. The food made up for everything though, it really is worth it.

One of the best Indian restaurants in city of London. Went there for a business lunch recently and enjoyed the London restaurant fortnight offer. Impressed with the creativity and innovation gone behind creating the food. Didn't know it was a sister restaurant of the famous Cinnamon Club albiet a little trendier. Suits my business requirements and perhaps will take family soon. Heard they opened another one in Soho so perhaps will check out Cinnamon SOho next..
