Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We ate at this restaurant today for a family birthday - food and service impeccable. You must try the hanging garlic bread. What a nice touch to serve the bread hanging off a skewer - makes life easy to share - fabulous idea. Defiantly will...return and we'll worth the travel if you are not local.More

Was here for a late lunch on St Patrick’s day with my family and the food was delicious. There was a set menu for St Patrick’s day and every thing was great. They adjusted some of the options for my children and they were happy...to help. Staff are really friendly and they provided some festive green drinks for St Patrick’s day. I’d really recommend this restaurant for any occasion. They also do really good take away food.More

Thrilled to find this restaurant. Absolutely fantastic, authentic tasty, fresh food ! Excellent service … I thoroughly recommend this restaurant. So impressed I ordered a takeaway a few weeks later unfortunately due to a glitch (with the delivery company app) the meal ended up at...somebody else’s address. The restaurant staff were amazing and resent all of the food to the correct address with absolutely no fuss even though the error was not theirs ! Excellent service excellent management can’t wait to eat there again !More

Myself and my family had a fantastic experience in this very homely and friendly restaurant. We were greeted at the door by friendly staff and were checked in regularly throughout the night. They were fully booked and the manager went above and beyond to fit...a group of 8 of us in his restaurant for my birthday. He was kind, polite and extremely helpful. The food was amazing from start to finish. The food was served hot and was very tasty. The only fault was that the butter chicken wasn’t as spicy as I would have liked it after asking for it spicy. They were extremely busy and the manager was not satisfied with the standard of service so he gave the table complementary drinks. This was completely unexpected and I did not even have to complain about anything to receive this extremely kind and appreciative gesture. This is what made this a 5 star restaurant for me. The cocktails were delicious and better than some high standard cocktail bars I’ve gone to. The waitress Caoimhe who was serving our table was very professional, friendly, served us with a smile and nothing we asked for was a hassle. The staff sang happy birthday to me and surprised me with a delicious dessert. I couldn’t of asked for a better night 🥰 I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who is looking for, delicious authentic Indian food, and amazing service from the minute you enter the restaurant until you leave. I would like to thank all the staff at the Cinnamon Garden for making my night very special! ❤️ I cannot wait to return!More

My group of golf friends make an annual trip to the British Isles and always look for an Indian restaurant for one of our dinners out. We were staying just down the road in Ashbourne so we went to The Cinnamon Garden. They were ready...for our group of seven, seated us promptly and Barbara and Ella both made us feel at home. For many of the group this was their first experience in an Indian restaurant, but they quickly acclimated. The food was excellent, and the service was even better. They did a perfect job of catering to a group of novices when it comes to Indian cuisine. At the end of each trip we conduct a poll about best golf course, best hotel, and The Cinnamon Garden was the unanimous choice for best mealMore

Really cannot understand the appeal if this restaurant! Went with friends a few weeks ago and to say the service was slow and painful woukd be putting it mild! Our food was served at different times! Lots of apologies but no excuses. Poor customer service!...The food was really only average but the prices were sky high! It's a shame as the decor looks beautiful but that's about all thats nice in this place. Avoid.More

We tried to order food for delivery however there were not enough delivery drivers. We did not mind this however, and offered to collect the food instead. When we were about to place the order over the phone, the staff member said they couldn’t take...the order because they were too busy and simply hung up the phone with no other information. We were very disappointed by this blatant lack of basic customer service and took our custom elsewhere. We will not be dining in the restaurant or ordering take out again.More
