Description: Fabulously modern, Cinnamon Fusion Indian Cuisine is a favourite among Boltons young and fashionable residents who adore the combination of fabulous traditional Indian food with a gourmet twist and funky bar scene atmosphere. Centrally located in this up and coming town, Cinnamon is one of a new breed of Bolton restaurants - hip, relaxed and with a focus on great food and great times. Decorated in deep, dark greys with hot pink accents, the Cinnamon dining room is entirely design-led, bang up to date in its sleek lines and judicious use of colours and textures, low lighting lending an intimate air to opulent proceedings. The imaginative menu is unique to the town, combining Indian classics with fine dining dishes based on well known Asian flavours and unique and delicious Indian tapas dishes, the perfect accompaniment to the excellent range of drinks available from the bar and the answer to any indecisive diners prayers.

“Ok but nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 October 2013

I went for the lunchtime special. Portions are small which is probably how they manage to keep the cost of the food down. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good either. Just plain average. Service good but as there was only one other table in use in what is quite a large restaurant then service had to be good. No particular incentive to return.

“not bad at all....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 September 2013

We had a lovely meal here a few weeks ago. Food choice and quality was excellent. Service very friendly, if a little slow at times.
Prices were fine and there were a number of specials available.
Maybe parking could be tricky at times, only a few spaces on the street out front and a small area at the rear, both chargeable depending on the time of day.

“Clueless”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

Lacklustre enviroment , staff inept, ordered a beer was told none available as waiting for a delivery any moment ? Late on Sunday evening , not likely,
Food was bland and expensive , wen will these businesses realise the customer is paramount to everything and service must be first class
Will not go again

“Curry from a jar?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 July 2013

Had High hopes for this place, the decor was good, and the staff managed our large party really well.
I opted for papadums and chutney, didn't have a starter, and chose a chicken balti and shared pilau rice and a plain naan with my Mrs who had chosen a chicken kharai. The poppadum a and chutney were good. Some people in our party had starters which seemed to go down well (one mixed grill resulting in a visit from the local fire brigade which set off the smoke alarms, although it did smell good).
The balti and Kharai though just didn't cut it, both are pretty standard curry dishes that you'd expect in any UK Indian restaurant, both lacked in the expected flavour department, to me they tasted like the chefs had opted to use a sharwoods curry sauce mix as the base for each dish rather than a blend of traditional spices etc.
The rice and naan were good, and there was plenty of food in each dish.
As there is so much (better) competition in this area for Indian cuisine, i probably wouldn't go back to Cinammon Fusion in a hurry (or at all).
