Having cooked from the Cinnamon Club cookbook, I had to visit this well known Indian restaurant when in London. Perhaps my expectations had been raised to an unrealistic level due to the extraordinary experience I had at Launceston Place two days earlier, as I found the the £22 set lunch menu to be good though not spectacular.
