The Cinnamon Club brings together European design and Indian cooking. The restaurant’s main dining room is unusually opulent; with balconies lined with books overlooking the dining area – a feature intact from it's past life as a library.
The location – in the heart of London, and in close proximity to prominent landmarks such as Westminster Abbey – further elevates the grandeur of this late 19th century building. How the name came about is a matter of debate, but Executive Chef Vivek Singh says his favourite myth surrounding the naming of the restaurant is that they told the director looking after the account (whose surname was Cinnamon) that they would name the place after him if he sanctioned the required funds.
Summed up as “electrifying new-wave Indian cooking” by the Good Food Guide, Singh's menus - which include a breakfast menu featuring both continental and Indian dishes - marry together European ingredients with the flavours of India. His cooking is as innovative as it is diverse; with the finished flavour worthy of a Silver Award for Best in Taste at Taste of London 2013.
There are plenty of vegetarian options available, making The Cinnamon Club an ideal place to visit for groups with a range of dietary requirements. The drinks and cocktails menu features many classic concoctions, as well as cocktails made with unique spice blends and homemade infusions.
