About Cinnamon Club

Top 500 Restaurants in Australia 2014 – The Financial Review | Best Indian Restaurant 2014 – The Advertiser Food Awards


Cinnamon Club provides their guests with an award-winning dining experience that’s unique among the Indian restaurants in Adelaide. Priding itself on essentials like friendly, knowledgeable service, a buzzing environment, incredible cocktails and – most important of all – the authenticity of its South Asian cuisine, Cinnamon Club has cruised to the top of many spicy food fans’ restaurant pick-lists. The restaurant’s Norwood premises, on the corner of The Parade and Queen Street a block back towards Adelaide city centre from Portrush Road, sets a stunning scene.

Further Information

Cinnamon Club is a crucial addition to the buzzing retail, dining and entertainment precinct of Norwood, located down The Parade from the Hoyts cinemas and across the road from the Patch Theatre Company – this is a great spot for an Indian meal before the show. Waltz up to the restaurant’s covered streetside seating area (there’s also a terrace round the corner on Queen Street that’s great for casual drinks or alfresco dining), step inside and you’re immediately taken in by the atmosphere. A large colourful mural of Ganesha rendered in a street-art style lines one side of the dining room, facing the long, sit-down bar where Cinnamon Club’s mixologist’s work their magic. Fire up the appetite with a tall drink like The British Raj (Pimms and gin shaken with passionfruit, mint and lemon, and topped up with ginger beer) or the Cinnamon Club Painkiller (Bacardi and pineapple, coconut cream and fresh orange) – these cocktails and more are famous in Adelaide.

From there, Cinnamon Club caters to a variety of dining styles and tempos – close your eyes and point at the list of quick bites to surprise yourself with a number of authentic Indian starters (we recommend the South Indian favourite chicken 65 with fried curry leaves), or opt for a mixed platter for two – the ‘extravaganza’ is a lavish entree loaded with various tandoori meats, chicken and seafood or there’s a generous vegetarian option. We love how Cinnamon Club has curated what counts as one of the best South Asian restaurant menus in Adelaide, showcasing a genuine consciousness of regional Indian cuisines. There’s street food from Mumbai, South Indian dosa served from the hot plate, the classic Hyderabadi biryani and an Anglo-Indian chicken tikka biryani cooked with 32 ingredients, tandoori balchao beef tikka from Indo-Portuguese Goa or the Afghan-influenced Kandhari murgh tikka, and many more from the special menu billed as ‘a regional culinary journey through Royal Indian Cuisine’. Truly a superlative Indian restaurant in Norwood and beyond, the Cinnamon Club deserves your reservation!

I have formally reviewed The Cinnamon Club on the cultural review website, The Barefoot Review -http://thebarefootreview.com.au I return to the restaurant whenever I can because it provides a joy of thrilling spice experiences. To this end, I have taken to ordering the banquet which offers many small serves of a vast array of the menu choices. They will make it mild, medium or hot, according to diner preference. I like it hot and am not disappointed. There are classic dishes and exotic gourmet specials, all prepared with finesse. I still swoon for the flavour of the beetroot vindaloo although the beef was a bit tough last time. Service is swift and attentive. The waitresses are elegant, well-informed and have the slightly haughty air of one who is devoted to keeping the standards high. Which they do. I shall keep returning.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed we were treated with kindness and humbleness with service of greatest respect and fulfillment, everything we wanted and more we were given exceptional treatment and felt this is one fantastic place to be, we had the banquet for two, but it could easily be for four , the amount of food was amazing and service was unbelievable. Will recommend this is the Indian restaurant you need to visit and you will not be disappointed......

The beef curry was tough and we had to send it back twice! We then asked for a different curry which was brought out quickly. I asked for more rice and the waiter said they would not charge for the rice...wow $4 for the inconvenience. I then asked to take the rest home,the waitress plonked down 2 containers and a bag in front of me...without saying a word! Very rude. Service was 50/50. Some waitress were nice others not so. Very loud in there and so busy. I was really looking forward to the meal but was disappointed. I won't rush back...maybe not at all.

Food was delicious, cocktail not so good although very potent. Service very good, explained the different dishes ordered by us. Although a tad expensive, we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The vegetarian or non-vegetarian thali is the best value as you have a few small pots of different foods to try along with Naan and salad.

Excellent food and service. Locared at the quieter end if the parade. A nice blend if indian and other food from the subcontinent. Pricing is perhaps a little high but as long as the quality and service remains good I can live with that although meal sixes could a little bigger for the money.

Great service with delicious food. There is a really bid menu so there is something to please everyone, even the people that don't really like overly spicy food. The wine menu is good with a nice range available for glass only.

Excellent service and atmosphere Food was faultless and in particular there was a range of Indian sweets which are usually predictable and tasteless but instead we were introduced to a wide range of very delicious desserts particularly the ice-cream .

My 3 friends and i loved the food - lots of variety and the pricing was quite reasonable. We thought the service was ok but lacked eye contact/interest when we needed to draw their attention several times during the evening.

Delicious food, pleasant service,seemed surprised by request for finger bowl/s when we ordered lamb chops but brought them anyway. Back corner table a bit noisy and busy. Very bony goat. Wonderful range of choices. I'd be happy to eat there often but it's a bit too expensive for me.

Food has the most incredible and authentic flavours. Unfortunately the noise levels were uncomfortably loud, but the restaurant was full which I guess is a good indication of the quality of the food.

Food was lovely and staff very helpful. We shared 4 main meals plus rice and naan bread because the waitress said it would be enough for 5, and it was.
