Visited on a Friday night after one of their reps on the street encouraged us in for a "special deal". We didn't get the deal promised to us when paying, supposedly because the guy on the street was new and doesn't know what he is offering. Well that's their problem not mine. Door was continuously left open so it was... More

I went there last sunday. The place seemed a bit empty but did not look bad. We were two and the service was far too slow. 90 minutes for two corries and a couple of lassies. By the way, very surprisingly, they only offered mango lassi, not simple sweet or any other flavours. Only mango lassi, that was good.

We arranged a day trip from Norwich to London especially to visit Cinnamon and have a curry lunch. We were 30 minutes early for our booking but made very welcome. The food was extremely tasty, authentic and very enjoyable and next time we come to London we would definitely be returning. Thank you.

We arrived at this restaurant and rushed to order (before we had taken our coats off). The food arrived and we about to start eat when they demand payment. Before could finish eating hotted head manager started chasing to eat faster and basically get out as they wanted to close.

I had to organise my wife's 30th birthday and we had a group of 25 at fairly short notice. These guys gave us a set menu deal with BYO and helped cater for our suprise party - they helped us put up balloons and banners for the birthday girl. Our group was noisy (sorry!) and having a lot of fun... More

We wanted to go to Aladin, but they hustled us into Cinnamon next door. Don't fall for this. It was not the best. It felt slow, over complicated menu, and the dishes we had were mediocre. I was really hoping for more. It came up short.

We had high expectation when we read the restaurants website and its glory but it was disappointment which turned in to regret as we had to pay premium for sitting on the table where Prince Charles supposedly sat, later we acknowledge His Royal Highness never came to dine there at first place. The staff were polite but fairly drunk and... More

Had a very good meal at the Cinnamon Brick lane. Staff very helpful and explained the menu and made good recommendations. We bought a couple of beers from the shop down the road and the waiter provided glasses with out us having to ask.

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighbourhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
