Visited twice during my 10-day trip to Wales. First time managed to arrive before it got busy, and enjoyed one of the superb slighly more unusual dishes on the extensive menu. Service was faultless, with superb attention to detail. After many visits, finally realised the little spec on each napkin is a small piece of cinnamon bark. The visit gave... More

I used to eat in the Cinnamon Tree a couple of times a month but haven't been for a while. I had a lovely surprise going back tonight, there were a number of new staff and a revised menu. These things may have been in place for some time, but I have not been. We received a warm welcome and... More

Never been disappointed - food superb, particularly recommend the tandoori trout. Staff are friendly and courteous, even when under pressure. A real gem of a restaurant.

I visited here following a recommendation from a friend and on the whole it was ok. I do agree with previous reviews though that they seem to cater for western tastes opposed to being an authentic Indian. (I have travelled around India I must add) Positives - The poppadoms were warm and crisp and the chutneys were very tasty, as... More

Visiting the Cinnamon Tree yet again, and it's as good - if not better - than ever! Despite a "closed" sign on the door and an apparently full restaurant, I was greeted charmingly by the engaging staff, and spirited upstairs to a beautifully cool and calm room with a lovely relaxing atmosphere. As ever, unusual choices deliciously prepared..... the fish... More

Went last night for 1st time. Really nice curry, caters for very British curry tastes, there are more authentic Indian options in Cardiff but the staff and food were very nice. Not near where I live but I would go back again is nearby. Didn't come across as the cheapest please?
