Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars

An offshoot of the iconic Cinnamon Club, serving Indian food with a twist.

The inspiration behind Cinnamon Bazaar may be a traditional marketplace, but don’t go expecting to haggle. With rose gold walls, rich pink silk awnings and flower baskets hanging from the ceiling, this is a pimped-out bazaar for the business-lunch crowd. As an offshoot of Westminster’s Cinnamon Club – an old hand at high-end Indian dining in London – this kitchen specialises in imaginative fusions of East and West. The star dish was a lamb rogan josh shepherd’s pie; filled with cardamom-infused lamb and topped with buttery mashed potato, it was a perfect balance of old-school British comfort and tangy, warming Indian flavours. Another highlight was a Malabar boatman’s haddock curry rich with beautifully fresh fish.

With the hits came a few misses. Service was slow (and a little clueless) and my carrot halwa roll pud came with an overbearing, clove-heavy ice cream. There’s also something about all that pristine silk decor that makes you long for a bit of dirty souk atmosphere. But if it’s a swanky work lunch you’re after, Cinnamon Bazaar will deliver the goods. And that shepherd’s pie might change your life.
