Cinnamon Bazaar

OPENED December 01st, 2016

Cinnamon Bazaar is the newest addition to the Central London food scene.

Inspired by India’s traditional markets and bazaars, Vivek Singh’s new restaurant combines Indian dishes with flavours found all along what was once known as the Silk Route.

Mixing Cultures and Flavours

Dinner being cooked at Cinnamon Bazaar.

Cinnamon Bazaar takes inspiration from the markets located along ancient trade routes that crossed Asia from China to the Mediterranean Sea. These markets were bustling places where ideas where exchanged right alongside food and goods.

The menu embodies that spirit of blended cultures and blurred regional lines, showcasing dishes like chicken haleem, which connects India to Iran; Kabuli kefta with tomato makhani sauce, linking Afghanistan to Punjab; and the millet, date tamarind and pomegranate salad drawn from the Middle East.

“Fusion restaurants” are considered something of a new fad, but the reality is that fusion cooking has been happening for as long as humans have been interacting with each other. Cinnamon Bazaar is a celebration of cross-cultural cooking, as well as the openness and shared ideas it can bring.

Old-Fashioned Decor and Innovative Drinks

Cinnamon Bazaar’s interior is designed to transport you back to the bazaars of India’s heritage, places that were defined by energy and life. The restaurant is decked out in vibrant blue, gold and green.

Organic fabrics and hand-painted artwork are on display. The relaxed setting is filled with the scent of traditional spices and herbs, creating a warm and welcoming ambiance.

If the food isn’t exciting enough for you, experimental signature cocktails are on offer. Options include the Bazaar Old Fashioned, made with coconut-washed Indian scotch, coconut sugar and burnt cinnamon; the ‘Falooda Swizzel,’ with white rum, basil seed, creme d’abricot, lime and amaranth cress; and a special take on an old favourite, the Masala Coke Float, with aged rum, masala coke and ice cream.

Open in Covent Garden on Maiden Lane, this bar and restaurant is an inviting place for people to come together.
