The Cinnamon Club redefined modern Indian cookery when it opened in 2001 in Westminster. Dedicated to innovative and creative Indian cuisine, Vivek Singh's contemporary Indian menu fused Indian flavours and western techniques and paved the way for a whole new modern Indian dining scene in London.
Now, in its 17th year, The Cinnamon Club has re-opened following a £1 million transformation and a brand new menu. A new chapter for the Club is about to be written.
Classically trained in India, Vivek has transformed the face of Indian cooking by drawing inspiration from age-old recipes and ideas and evolving them to create dishes 'beyond authenticity'. Outside of the kitchen Vivek has authored five bestselling cookbooks and is a regular on BBC's Saturday Kitchen, Celebrity Masterchef and UKTV’s Market Kitchen.
