What the press say & Awards

The Cinnamon Club bears the hallmark of true excellence & awards. Take a look at some of the glowing quotes by some of the world's best known publications & food critics.


Evening Standard

Fay Maschler
'The fish was delicious, the rabbit dish an alluring mosiac of flavours including an unexpected lick of hot mustard inside the pancake wrapping.'

Independent on Sunday

Mark Leftly
'The deliciously deconstructed Indian food, which includes roasted plaice and Bengali spiced crab, was a daring addition to the London dining scene in 2001'

Square Meal Restaurants and Bars

'More millionaire than slumdog, The Cinnamon Club's swanky basement bar s achingly trendy compared to the dignified calm of the restaurant above.'
'This restaurants singular personality is down to chef Vivek Singh's stunningly presented and exhilarating contemporary cuisine'

Observer Food Monthly

Alan Jenkins
'2011 signals 10 years of success with his award-winning Cinnamon Club. Mr Singh Sr would have been proud.'

The Times

Tony Turnbull
'Vivek has introduced us to a world in which ingredients would taste of themselves rather than being masked by a camouflage of spice.'

Square Meal Venues and Events

Edward Reeves
'So, from its inauspicious beginnings, Cinnamon Club looks like it's going to be around for a long while yet. Definitely a case of 'mission accomplished' for Singh,'


Rhodri Marsden
'Few establishments have done as much to further the reputation of Indian cuisine as has The Cinnamon Club.'
'It's where stunning Indian flavours meet the best of British seasonal produce thanks to Executive Chef Vivek Singh.'

Time Out

'Tucked away in the grand backstreets of Westminster, this restaurant has earned a deserved reputation for excellent Indian cuisine in the ten years since it opened. Dishes are bursting with flavour but never heavy'

'There are very few places in the UK offering Indian food at this level of innovation and excellence.'

Evening Standard

Charles Campion
'Fit for a maharajah, it's both chic and satisfying.'

The American

Virginia E. Schultz
'Chef Vivek Singh, who arrived in London via Mumbai and Calcutta, fuses European ingredients and classical Indian flavours with a daring imagination most chefs would fear to try.'
