The Cinnamon Club

Indian food with a difference #Yum

Last week I visited The Cinnamon Club in Westminster, London. From the moment we arrived the service was impeccable – we were served wine and complimentary champagne within five minutes of sitting down.

Firstly, the building is beautiful – set in an old library. Ideal for a date or business lunch.

Secondly, the most important part the food is incredible. Every dish I had was so full of flavour and was well presented.

Starter

To start I had the Tandoori breast of Anjou squab pigeon, pumpkin chutney and masala peanut (£16.50). I love game and the pigeon was very tender. Topped with the peanuts and chutney it was so full of flavour and just the right amount of spice without blowing  my head off.

For my main course I had the Norfolk free range chicken breast in Hyderabadi korma sauce, garlic naan crumble (£19.50). The dish was full of flavour and the garlic naan crumble was a nice alternative to rice. Two business men next to use had the Whole rack of Romney Marsh lamb, saffron-roganjosh sauce, black lentils, pickled root vegetables and hot garlic chutney (£78.00). A little pricey but it looked and smelled awesome. I wish I had ordered some naan bread as a side with mine to top it off.

Dessert

Finally, my favourite course, DESSERT. People joke about having a different stomach for dessert but I 100% do! I had the Chocolate rasgulla, bitter chocolate mousse, passion fruit curd, mango sorbet (£12.50). I love chocolate so this was lush. I didn’t know what rasgulla was but they were syrup like. Further research taught me that Rasgulla is a syrupy dessert popular in the Indian subcontinent and regions with South Asian diaspora. It is made from ball shaped dumplings of chhena (an Indian cottage cheese) and semolina dough, cooked in light syrup made of sugar. I recommend trying them and will be looking for them again. Topped off with the passion fruit curd and mango sorbet set this dish apart.

I loved my experience at The Cinnamon Club, I will be returning and fully recommend it.
