Best Indian take away I have ever found. Absolutely first class. The dishes created here put the vast majority of take aways to shame. The food conveys fabulous spice mixes in the curries that are all freshly prepared in an open kitchen where you can watch the master Indian chefs prepare the food Big bonus to find this lovely take...

We began visiting the cinnamon when it first opened in portobello and the food was good however through time the food dropped and we dropped cinnamon. My son recently recommended and we began to order at least once per week for the last month excellent food.service and good prices .cinnamon keep your chef and keep your customers.

Had another takeaway from here tonight and our food was amazing. Lamb madras was hot and tasty with massive chunks of tender lamb. All the sides were good and the delivery was prompt. Would highly recommend this place and will defiantly order soon.

Ordered a delivery for the first time and it came quickly. Food was really good, great size portions. Chicken madras was really hot and tasty. Huge nan breads. Extra bits added in for free. Really enjoyable curry and will definitely order again.

We decided to try Cinnamon on the last night of our recent Edinburgh stay. We read the reviews on Trip Advisor and were encouraged. We can honestly say this was one of the best Indian takeaways we can remember (and we are not young!). Fresh, flavoursome and light. Not swimming in ghee like so many Indian takeaway dishes.

Firstly we don't eat meat so cannot comment on what the meals are like for meat eaters However for people who adore Indian veggie meals, I haven't eaten better in Edinburgh. Extremely skilled cooked with sumptuous flavours and an excellent range of meals. The service is always friendly, helpful and accommodating. Highly, highly recommended.

Friendly staff, large portions, and the food is delicious! Don't let the outlook of the establishment deceive you, it's OK but the food is so much better. We had the vegetarian meal for two, highly recommended!
