The tasting menu at Cinnamon Kitchen was truly fantastic. And not overly expensive for the amount and quality of food. I was expecting small portions but there was plenty of each yummy course and I was practically full by the time the dessert arrived. Will defintely go back.”
I tried the tasting menu and was really impressed. The first salmon dish was nice but perhaps the weakest (although that's coming from someone that doesn't usually like salmon). Next came chargrilled cauliflower which was a revelation, so delicious I wanted more, and lovely pickes with it too. A nice sorbet to cleanse the palate followed by the tandoori prawns with curry sauce, this was amazing. I had the red deer main and it was melt in the mouth. Finally a large profiterole, coffee and petit fours. A real treat! Absolutely fabulous. Can't wait to try Cinnamon Kitchen again.”
I left frustrated
This is a mixed review. The food in the tasting menu was delicious, there's no doubt in that. But the experience was let down by the extremely slow service, the wrong paired wines arriving, or none at all. I was a single diner sitting at the front bench and to be honest I felt ignored. They were literally sweeping up the restaurant and I hadn't received a bill yet. I left frustrated at spending over £100 for what should have been a standout experience. It just didn't seem like I was important to them in any way.”
