We visited Cinnamon's last week on a Wednesday; the restaurant was moderately busy. There was one waitress for the entire floor and she was really slow as well. Occasionally someone from the kitchen would come out to serve but she was mostly alone, unable to handle the service. We waited 40 minutes for food. Everything took ages, a long wait... More

We've frequented this place often. Sadly the last two visits haven't been good at all. I think this is it for us. The food wasn't replenished and once you missed out you missed out. There were no entree type foods like on previous visits and the hopper maker is just too slow. You need at least 6 burners for a... More

Without a doubt the worst curry I've ever had. Just mud with lumps in it. A jar of supermarket curry would have been better. I don't know how the managed it

I wanted to go to the Saturday night buffet dinner with a couple of friends so I decided to make a reservation as it gets pretty busy on Saturday evenings. I phoned Cinnamons on Friday afternoon (18-11-2016) to make the reservation. I was spoken to by an extremely rude woman. I kindly requested a table on the lower level of... More

I have been here a couple of times before and it seems that what was once a great food spot has been in steady decline. I chose a tandoori banquet which should have been straightforward. I was warned that the chicken had some bones in it. Fair enough, but what arrived on my plate were a number of initially indistinguishable... More

I am not sure whether the price they charge for the food is match with the food they offer. I feel the price is too high and and the quality is a questionable. I don't think I will go this place again.

On this occasion it was a Saturday night dinner buffet offering for $35 pp which offered an exotic and tasty array of Sri Lankan cuisine all supported by a male and female duo singing some popular classics. Great food and ambiance.

Staying south of the city for a conference. Three of us came across Cinnamon's. Spacious, quiet and delicious food. Likely busier and noisier at peak times but Wednesday evening was very quiet. We shared two lots of starters and I had the goat curry main. All the food was delicious and staff attentive. Would definitely return.
