Wow. This place is excellent. I was not expecting to be blown away as the restaurant prides itself on modern takes on traditional Indian cuisine, but I was. The chef has taken traditional favorites and has created a new experience. The chicken korma was awesome...More

Naan was flimsy and gummy-like, the waiter was a jerk, and the server couldn't serve a plate in less than 5 minutes. Ridiculous for what you pay and what you get.More

Can't praise the staff highly enough. We were with a crowd for lunch and had some wonderful food in lovely old library setting. Would highly recommend for some great Indian food. Good choices covering meat, chicken, fish and vegetarian dishes. Will return one day

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a
grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to
start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham
Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just
up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are

Description
Challenging the notion that Indian cuisine can only be created using age-old recipes and ideas, The Cinnamon Club demonstrates how evolution and adaptation can create a new chapter in gourmet excellence. Housed in the Grade II listed former Westminster Library, a stone’s throw from London’s Westminster Abbey, The Cinnamon Club’s neo-colonial feel fits perfectly with its distinctive style of Indian haute cuisine.
