This is not a fancy place, but the food is excellent. It has a large, but not overdone, selection of Indian cuisine. There is something for everyone, and it is done very well. We had the Goan Salmon and the Rogan Josh. This probably the best Goan fish I have ever had, and the lamb in the Rogan Josh was... More

Wonderful Tandoori lamb and chicken. Reasonably priced and fantastic food, generous portions. Large menu, helpful staff, booths which give some privacy, plenty of parking

We finally got our Indian cuisine fix in Asheville! After having a very disappointing dinner at the popular Chai Pani, we were still in search of a good Indian restaurant. We tried Cinnamon and were not disappointed! Everything we had was stellar, and the leftovers were even better the next day. :) The portions are huge and the price is... More

I love Indian food and could eat it several times a week. I ate lunch at Cinnamon Kitchen (the lunch buffet) for the first time last week. Cinnamon Kitchen is closer to my home, but I was disappointed in the quality and variety of the buffet dishes. The naan was perfect: hot and garlicky. The hot chai tea made per... More

This was my first visit and was quite impressed with service, quality and flavor of the food. The food was delicious and make sure you get an order of the bread basket. Will definitely be eating here again.

We have eaten there several times and we have yet to be disappointed, in either the quality of the food or the service. I almost always order the tikka chicken entrée; always delicious.

If Indian food is on your list of favorites, this establishment is outstanding! OK, so I'm boring, but my favorite dish is Palak Paneer. It's my go to dish wherever I'm dining Indian. It was delicious and the rice was perfect and the food was plentiful. We ordered the garlic naan and it was amazing!!! So amazing I could go... More

We eat here at least once a week. We typically order the same things though.. the bread basket, chicken tikka masala, palak paneer, and 2 glasses of the Sea Glass riesling. Our first visit here we tried the shrimp mango masala and pan seared scallops. Neither of those seafood dishes was very good, and it took 30 minutes to get... More
