    Cinnamon Kitchen in Battersea, located steps away from the iconic Battersea Power Station, is a captivating gem offering a modern Indian dining experience with a relaxed, all-day concept. When discussing Cinnamon Kitchen, one cannot help but acknowledge the culinary brilliance of Vivek Singh. The restaurant seamlessly marries modern-Indian cuisine with British influences. What struck us initially was the charming juxtaposition of exposed brickwork and industrial-inspired interiors, which harmonised perfectly with the industrial heritage of Battersea Power Station.

    The restaurant provides guests with a variety of menus to choose from including their 9 Dish Sharing Feast, but we opted for their A La Carte menu to fully immerse ourselves in their culinary delights.

    As we perused the menu, we decided to kick off our dining experience with some cocktails. I opted for the Indian Martini, a delightful concoction featuring Saffron-Infused Gin and homemade pineapple syrup. The rich saffron and tropical pineapple flavours made for a remarkable and refreshing start to the meal. My partner, chose the Coconut Kir, a unique blend of Wyborowa vodka infused with desiccated coconut, topped with champagne. The combination of vodka and coconut provided a fresh and tropical twist, setting the stage for the culinary journey that awaited us.

    "If you're in search of a memorable dining experience that marries tradition and innovation, Cinnamon Kitchen in Battersea is an outstanding choice."

    Bypassing the starters, we eagerly dove into the main courses, and our first selection was the Paneer Butter Masala. This delectable dish featured soft and creamy paneer, paired with tender peas, complete in a rich onion sauce. The interplay of the savoury paneer and the mildly sweet notes of the onion sauce was a delightful dance of flavours that left us wanting more. The dish was presented elegantly, and the aromatic wafts that filled the air only added to the anticipation.

    Our next choice was the Tandoori Chicken Breast, prepared with dill and cardamom, and accompanied by a beetroot coconut korma. The chicken breast was cooked to perfection, boasting a succulent interior and a slightly charred, flavourful exterior. The dill and cardamom infused the chicken with a fragrant and herbaceous essence that elevated the dish wonderfully. The beetroot coconut korma offered a subtle contrast, providing a subtly sweet and creamy backdrop to the chicken's robust flavours. This combination was a true testament to the chef's skill in blending Indian and British culinary elements.

    For our final course and personal favourite, we couldn't resist the Seared Kentish Saddle of Lamb. This dish featured a succulent cut of lamb seared to a beautiful medium-rare, accompanied by keema saag and a Chettinad sauce. The lamb, sourced from Kent, was incredibly tender and packed with flavour, and the searing process added a delightful charred crust. Offering a harmonious partnership with the rich Chettinad sauce, which was aromatic and generously spiced. This dish was a true masterpiece that showcased the depth of flavours and textures that Cinnamon Kitchen excels in creating.

    To complement our main courses, we added a side of House Black Lentils. These lentils were a revelation, showcasing a delightful blend of spices and seasonings that created a memorable and hearty side dish. The creamy consistency of the lentils, coupled with the aromatic spices, made it a perfect accompaniment to our meal.

    Cinnamon Kitchen in Battersea is more than just a restaurant; it's a sensory experience. The attentive service, stylish ambiance, and, most importantly, the delectable cuisine, make it a standout dining destination. Each dish we sampled was a testament to the restaurant's commitment to innovation, craftsmanship, and the art of fusing Indian and British culinary traditions.

    In conclusion, Cinnamon Kitchen at Battersea Power Station offers a refreshing and contemporary take on Indian cuisine. With the influence of British ingredients and innovative cooking techniques, this restaurant brings a unique and exciting flavour to the London dining scene. The ambiance is equally impressive, with the industrial interiors and exposed brickwork providing a modern and stylish backdrop for an unforgettable dining experience. Our journey through the menu was nothing short of exceptional. Each dish was a culinary masterpiece, showcasing the creativity and expertise of Chef Vivek Singh and his team. If you're in search of a memorable dining experience that marries tradition and innovation, Cinnamon Kitchen in Battersea is an outstanding choice.
