Cinnamon Kitchen

Restaurants, Indian Liverpool Street

Time Out says

An offshoot of Westminster's Cinnamon Club, the Indian fine dining institution.

It seems fitting that this smart-casual City sibling of the Cinnamon Club should occupy what was an old spice warehouse belonging to the East India Company. These days, however, it’s a suited-and-booted favourite complete with stylish industrial-chic interiors and a covered courtyard for year-round socialising. Most of the dishes emerging from the open kitchen are clever but not contrived – think ‘muzzeh’ street-food snacks such as chicken liver and peas with kadhai spices, followed by tandooris, regional biryanis and curries (try the Chettinad mutton or the Keralan ‘boatman’s’ version made with haddock). The menu also lists a few self-styled ‘classics’ (chargrilled saddle of lamb with Rajasthani corn, yoghurt sauce and pilau) alongside a clutch of vegan options (stir-fried cauliflower with garlic and chilli, for example). To drink, don’t miss the fruity Asian-inspired cocktails.

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..


Cinnamon Kitchen’s swanky hideaway in Devonshire Square is quite charming. But while some restaurants are more “style over substance”, the CK’s downfall sadly, for me, was on the style. The food is exquisite. Almost haute cuisine. Sitting down to a mouth watering (and burning) Goan Pork Cheek Vindaloo with Masala Mash was simply delicious. The aromas in the restaurant are stimulating. But fade ever so slightly away in its predictable decor for the city whereby there is a confusion as to whether they want to be your cheap and cheerful local Indian, or a fine dining experience for the finance district’s clientele. What really let me down though in this experience was the service. From the apathetic hosts that greet you at the door, to waiting 30+ minutes for our drinks order to arrive, to an awkward encounter with a waiter about adding service to our final payment and him expecting it in cash. There is definite room for improvement when it comes to service here so be warned. But as the food goes, you won’t be disappointed.


Devonshire Square, although just minutes from Liverpool Street station, is one of Shoreditch’s gems. The indoor square plays host to a number of fabulous restaurants and luxe stores, including the Cinnamon Kitchen. I actually visited the restaurant as it played host to a Franklin & Sons PR event but the food served from the Cinnamon Kitchen’s head chef beat all expectations. Given small samples of some of the restaurants signature curries, the flavour and surrounding scenery and smells transports to the streets of Bombay. The staff were incredibly attentive and welcoming and the restaurant décor and outdoor seating area are certainly Insta worthy!

I will be sure to return to sample the menu in full. Bombay gin to accompany, naturally. 


Cinnamon Kitchen have teamed up with Bombay Sapphire to bring us an Indian Summer because let's face it, we haven't had much of a summer this year! They've set up a Summer Gin Garden outside with private gazebos adorned with beautiful and colourful sarees! There is an Elephant too! The menu has a great selection of Gin cocktails paired with delicious canapés. My favourite was the mint and ginger cocktail! I visited on Monday night and it was very quiet but I expect that it would get very busy towards the end of the week so would recommend booking.


I've been here a couple of times now, most recently for dinner with a friend on a Tuesday night. I didn't expect to see too many customers, but was pleasantly surprised as a restaurant got busier and busier, as the evening went on. We opted for the two-course menu with a cocktail fizz for £19 and agreed it was a great deal. For mains, I had the fish curry with rice which was absolutely delicious it came with a mashed potato and veg cake and raw red onions on top, which was perfect to me as I love onions! For dessert, we both enjoyed an Asian spin on a much loved sticky toffee pudding, which came with ice cream, all infused with ginger and cinnamon. Whilst I loved the mains, the dessert was absolutely dreamy and it just wasn't enough! The cocktails came in a alcoholic and non alcoholic version and were lychee flavoured and again delicious. The atmosphere of the restaurant was buzzing and service was lovely. Out of all three Cinnamon restaurants this one just beats the others for atmosphere and location. I highly recommend.


I attended the Cinnamon Kitchen for it's House of Holi event and was pleasantly surprised by the sophisticated yet welcoming atmosphere! The food was of an impeccably high standard with everything cooked to sheer perfection in taste and flavour and a wide variety of foods on offer. The biryani rice was amazing, I had the opportunity to taste a selection of authentic deserts and the cocktails also looked incredible!


There has to be more than I can muster, but if I had to list modern Indian restaurants in London, I wouldn’t get too far.Cinnamon Kitchen sits very high on the list.The way CK presents Indian cooking is a refreshing feast of flavours.The restaurant at Devonshire Square has a lovely corner setting, its interior is light, modern and sleek, while it also offers decking outside the restaurant overlooking the square (which has a glass roof to make it an all-weather square btw!).My trip to Cinnamon Kitchen saw me soak up a cocktail while trying taster portions of a few things on their menu, including the delicious vegetarian biryani.It’s definitely left me hungry for more and I look forward to returning!


Definitely worth a visit, for a swanky City venue, the menu is very good value and the food is truly outstanding.

The atmosphere is incredible, you feel like your in a massive garden with really cool lighting outside. The service is excellent, very welcoming and they really look after you. 

They have some great cocktails (went down far too easily). I tried a selection of canapes and there were some fantastic new flavors - spicy prawns, sticky chicken skewers, aubergines with sesame and deep fried cheese balls which were a fantastic range of flavors to test and delight my palette.

Ideal for large parties as the tables are set out in length and also for nice evening meals with a partner.

Absolutely perfect, thanks CK!

Went for the Holi experience, with cocktails and canapes - really disappointed by the service.  The canapes were ok, but we were very much secondary customers.  The entire hour we sat outside only two members of staff came out, and we had to chase our canapes a couple of times.

Just had a fab lunch the main which was a saddle of lamb, cook rare was delicious, especially nice to have surprise dishes arriving between courses!  

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.
