Came here on a Wednesday evening for a quick meal. The food was very nice, tasty and hot but the service was lack lustre and at times quite brisk.
After eating we waited ages for our bill despite the fact that the place was basically empty... overall nice food but service is probably better elsewhere.

We popped in here on a Monday night without booking and were immediately accommodated. Nice clean restaurant with views of the beach. Most of us had the seafood bhuna. It was fabulous, enough seafood - king scallops, squid, fish fillet & tiger prawns - and cooked to perfection. Reasonably priced too. Staff friendly and helpful.

We don't often have soup in an Indian restaurant but after a day in the car we wanted to line our stomachs and ordered spiced pea soup. It had green chillies but was described as mild. My wife checked with the waiter, who assured us it wasn't hot. It was, far too hot to taste the other ingredients - ginger, cumin and coriander. We had to ask for yoghurt, and even then we didn't enjoy it.

We both had biryani, the Cinnamon Spice Special and the Lentil & Vegetable. We didn't notice the 'arrangement in a platter with tasteful decorations' or the fried Kashmiri plums, but they were tasty and we enjoyed them. The portions were generous, and my wife only managed half of hers.

The décor is functional rather than stylish; service prompt and friendly; reasonable prices; just a pity about that soup!

With many restaurants closed on Mondays in Margate - clearly February is out of season despite it being half term - we found ourselves in Cinnamon Spice. The waiter was pleasant enough although he did march around quite a lot and because there were so few customers it was very noticeable! Still the food was lovely - very tasty and huge portions. Would recommend the fish curries - my husband went for the Seafood Bhuna and I had a Salmon dish which was very good. My son had the tandoori chicken and was disappointed to have to leave some of it because there was just too much! Lots of choice for rice - the garlic and onion rice was a new one for me and was great. Would recommend this Indian restaurant - some out of the ordinary menu choices and worth visiting, even on a quiet Monday evening.

Even though this restaurant was super-busy and the staff were overworked, they were friendly and welcoming (when we'd been turned away from about 5 other restaurants- weekend before Valentine's, hadn't booked on a Saturday night= fail) and despite the restaurant itself not looking particularly special the food was very good, a cut above the usual. Unexpected bonus, our waiter told us all about the property bargains in the area, and encouraged us to invest! Maybe we will
