Tasty authentic curry. A friend and I arrived at Cinnamon Fire as a last resort, everything was booked up so we wandered around looking for somewhere with a table, Cinnamon Fire was it... and I am happy that it was. The decor is a little strange, the chairs make you feel like a king (or queen) but what really matters,... More

Really yummy Indian food, particularly the nann bread. When we arrived there was not one other person in the restaurant so we picked an outside table. We're served promptly and the food was really good. We were given a $10.00 off voucher from our motel which prompted us to go there and when we came to use the voucher on... More

We are fans of Indian food and ate for Lunch here. The toilets are just like in India (a mess) but when we saw that our roti bread was somehow sprinkled with undefined curry gravy it started to be disgusting. Another look at the completely (!!) dirty tray of the waiter and we stopped eating ...

Very nice indian food, and their samosas are amazing. We had chicken jalfrezi and lamb bhuna, both of which had good strong spice flavours.

We visited this restaurant for lunch with our grand-daughters; we were blown away by the decor and feel of the place. Very impressive. The food was excellent, very tasty, spicy & full of flavour. The girls were not so keen on the curries on offer, but soon found their favourites on the menu, and were well pleased with them. The... More

Had a beautiful meal delivered to our home last week. Every dish exceeded our expectations. I am a bit of an Indian food fan myself. Every meal we get from Cinnamon in Taupo is just fantastic. Compliments to your staff and your Chef. We love your meals! See you again soon. Stu

I was delighted to find this restaurant open on what seemed like a very quiet Monday evening but the minute I saw that Goat Curry was listed as a Special for the day I decided I had to go in and try it out. It was an excellent choice, simple, but well put together and served with boiled rice and... More
