“Attractive Indians with a good range of different dishes” – Vivek Singh’s dynamic duo of affordable spin-offs from his celebrated Cinnamon Club inspire practically nothing but high praise. The long-established City outlet set inside a rather 1980s atrium development is “a solid option around Liverpool Street” (although at times “the cavernous interior can feel a bit odd and echoey”); the newer Battersea branch occupies a railway arch near the power station and feels “different” (in a good way).

“Big flavoured, modern Indian dishes” from an “interesting and different menu” win praise for Vivek Singh’s high quality duo: “a more affordable introduction to the Cinnamon Club’s cuisine”. The newer SW11 branch, “with service around an open kitchen in a lively railway arch” near Battersea Power Station is jollier than its longer-established City sibling, where “the décor is quite boring and service a tad patchy” (although the latter is also “pretty decent value in an area that has limited options for a weekend lunch”).

Vivek Singh’s “interesting and innovative” Indian duo still inspire their numerous fans with “delicious” Indian dishes; and the EC2 branch also has the benefit of a “lovely ‘outside’ space” (in fact within a large atrium) that’s “unexpected” given its Square Mile location. Its three-year-old sibling is within the new Battersea Power Station complex. Even some fans, though, have found both locations “less interesting that they were” of late, with incidents of “atrocious” service a particular drag on the general mood. Hopefully, this is a temporary post-pandemic blip – the historic performance here has been consistently good.

“Bright, interesting flavours” from an evolved menu that’s “delicately prepared” win a thumbs up for Vivek Singh’s “well-appointed” duo of modern Indians. The original, inside a large atrium within a City development, benefits from a big ‘outside’ terrace; its two-year-old sibling occupies a railway arch within the new Battersea Power Station development.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
