From the same stock as London favourites The Cinnamon Club and Cinnamon Kitchen, Cinnamon Soho offers innovative Indian cuisine. Set over 2 levels, an al fresco terrace features edgy brushed steel and racing-car-blue leather. Cinnamon Soho was a winner in the Best Menu category at the esteemed London Restaurant Festival Awards 2012.

Crafted with the knowing eye of executive chef Vivek Singh, the Cinnamon Soho menu offers contemporary Indian recipes, with classic British accents weaved throughout. A bespoke window in the Cinnamon Soho dining room offers views onto the chefs creating dishes like Keralan seafood pie, ox cheek vindaloo, or lassi panna cotta with tamarind-glazed figs.

Bursting with exotic and refreshing blends, a prized selection of cocktails at Cinnamon Soho London includes a subtly spiced cinnamon bellini, or a cool garden mojito. An eclectic assortment of bottles make up the wine list, with many available by the glass or carafe.

Featuring slick, Scandinavian-style design, Cinnamon Soho restaurant is perfectly in tune with the edginess of nearby Carnaby Street. Oxford Circus Tube Station is a 5-minute walk away.

    Taster menu was great for those who are not fussy eaters. Very good food and lots of it - 8 dishes - very good value at £24.
    Only annoyance free cocktail was Mango based which one of the party hated so asked for a swap and ended up paying separately! Free Cocktail was also small and no sign of alcohol.

    We had a fantastic experience. Value for money was great. The food was wonderful and we had a very helpful and friendly waiter. Will definitely be revisiting.

    Not as glamorous as Cinnamon Club, but same type of fine and unusual food and at a much more reasonable price. We had the £24 8 course tasting menu with a drink included. The courses come two by two starting very small and getting larger. Initially we thought "Is that all?" but by the end when the last dish comes with rice and naan bread, you have had your fill, we even left a little bit. The prawns were particularly yummy. Wonderful combinations of flavours and colours, and superb presentation, most never experienced in an "Indian" restaurant before.

    We ate on the ground floor, which after looking at the basement area where the toilets were, we preferred where we ate. There is also an alfresco area under the sky in the busy passage at the back of the restaurant.

    Highly recommended.

    Very disappointing. No atmosphere in the restaurant, poor service. Food was good, not amazing, but the rest of the experience let it down.

    Great experience, delicious sharing menu, friendly and efficient service. Decor a bit drab.

    Really interesting menu with a good variety of very tasty and well-presented dishes. For the quality of the cooking and the size of the portions the deal of £24 for 8 tasting courses and a cocktail was very good value. Serving staff were also good.
