Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Ordered at 5.30pm, delivery confirmed by 6.30pm. By 7.15pm, it hadn’t arrived. I phoned and was told the food was ready but there was no driver and no estimated time of delivery. I was asked to collect it instead (we’re in Musselburgh not portobello). By...the time we did that, it was 8pm. When I called to ask about getting our money back, the man hung up on me 3 times because he was busy! Customer service was appalling. Food was average. Won’t be back.More

Since moving to portobello we tried a few different Indian take aways which were average or not great. Since trying cinnamon we have not used another one since, food is shears great and staff very nice. We will happily continue to eat from here.

I'm visting my mum in Edinburgh for the first time in 3 years, 3 years ago this takeaway was awesome, quality food and good large portions. I was disappointed in the food today. I had the Lamb Balti Karahi, sauce was ok but not a...proper Karahi and had only 6 small pieces of lamb in it (less meat than a tesco ready meal), I've paid £10.95 to still be hungry. My mum had the Chicken Pista Pasanda- mum is very elderly, is normally unable to eat a her full meal and used to eat half and save the other half for lunch the next day, not tonight, all eaten and still hungry. The food was tasty but it was £10.95 and £10.75 respectively for what was little more than curry sauce and rice. The delivery was fast, the quality was good, the portions of meat extremely poor on this occasion- you used to be the best, what happened?More

Firstly we use the Cinnamon a lot. Wonderful food, particularly for vegetarians like us. The food is consistently very high quality, tasty and well prepared. I would recommend the Veggie Dansak, sabsi green masalla or Ceylon = wonderful. As well as the food, the employees...in the restaurant are always welcoming, polite, friendly and helpful. We stay around 50+ miles from Edinburgh but when we can visit, this is our choice for exceptional Indian food. Highly recommended.More

Beautifully cooked Indian cuisine. Been a family fave outfit for a long time but had stopped going about 2 years ago. Tried again this month and this is our 3rd visit in 2 weeks. Always arrives hot and fresh and is never too greasy which...I find is sometimes an issue with takeaways. Highly recommend this place !!!!!! 😊More

The vegetarian curries from this place are only five pounds for a mains dish, like Veggie Bhuna. It comes with a variety of different vegetables in it. I enjoyed very much the Bhuna and Dopiaza dishes I ordered from here. Once I went into pick...up my order and they were keeping it warm for me on the hob. Great service, friendly staff.More
