Authentic Indian food is in high demand in Belfast and Cinnamon in Dundonald has found a gap in the market that they have done well to fill. The restaurant not only specializes in Indian food, but it also serves Vegetarian, Bangladeshi and Balti cuisine.
The decor of the restaurant can be described in two ways; simple and elegant. The restaurant appeals to families, friends and executives, looking for a destination in which to combine business and pleasure. The restaurant has recently been refurbished, so patrons can expect a completely new take on the decor, music and even the lighting.
When it comes to pricing, patrons will be happy to know that the establishment won’t cost them an arm and a leg. The early bird menu allows customers to pick two courses for just under £12. Pricing ranges between £9 and £20, and while the upper end might be somewhat daunting, the quality of the food tends to make it more than worthwhile.
The staff is knowledgeable, welcoming and efficient – just about everything you would want in this sort of establishment. Customers will want to look out for the owner, who is often to be seen welcoming guests and inquiring about their experience. This hands-on approach makes a visit to Cinnamon all the more welcoming.
The BYO option allows patrons the opportunity to bring along their preferred wines and other drinks, although the restaurant did recently get their license, so there is a selection of drinks available. Patrons will likely want to inquire about the corkage price before taking advantage of this option.
The dishes are all presented very elegantly and there is always something new and interesting to try. Some favourites include the Chicken Tikka Chilli Marsala and the garlic king prawn starter, which will have diners coming back for more.
Perhaps the most appealing thing about a visit to the Cinnamon is that patrons will always feel as if they have got more than their money’s worth. The portions are generous, the pricing is fair and the food is of a high quality – it is no wonder it has fast become Belfast’s favourite Indian restaurant.
