With its beautiful upscale dining room, Cinnamons on Axminster’s South Street is a reliable choice for a romantic evening out or a celebratory dinner. The Devon restaurant is known for its attentive, caring wait staff, so feel free to ask questions or enquire about ingredients – the servers are all highly trained and educated about each and every item on the menu.

It’s usually a difficult decision when it comes to selecting a main course at Axminster’s Cinnamons, but we’re confident that you’ll love any of the dishes on offer. One of the restaurant’s top Bangladeshi dishes is the ayre jalfrezi, featuring a fish cooked in a traditional sauce of green chillies, mixed pepper and coriander – but be warned, this is a very fiery dish. Adventurous diners are encouraged to order from the Exotic Dishes on the menu like the Devil’s Tamarind, consisting of your choice of lamb or chicken cooked in a tandoor and covered in a delicious tamarind sauce. You’ll have many more choices awaiting you, so make sure to reserve ahead for an amazing dining experience at Cinnamons.
A great evening. Arrived on time and table was waiting. No need to confirm by phone. Good service and good food. Nice people! Thank you Cinnamons.
Always a lovely atmosphere and great service. The food is fantastic, really fresh and tasty served beautifully. Thr menu is amazing with loads of specialities and clear descriptions, lots of vegetarian options and some of the best side dishes Ive had. Food isnt too oily like alot of places and they happily let you take any leftovers home. So many starters and accompaniments to choose from. They also brought out a Cake with a spectacular sparkler for my dads birthday and an extra bottle of wine and the beggining of the meal! We had a wonderful night because the service and food were excellent. Food isnt as spicy as you might expect but you can ask for it to have added spice.
Best Indian food in the area, I always ask the waiter for a recommendation and they have never disappointed. I'm a competent curry chef so like to think I know what I'm talking about
On holiday in the area and chose this restaurant from trip advisor Excellent food and service and welcoming atmosphere Menu varied and well cooked Will definitely return if in the area
We were made very welcome and shown to our table, even though we had arrived early. The menu was very varied, making choice a bit difficult, but the food was absolutely wonderful. Not only was it promptly served, the presentation was beautiful and the aromas and flavours were delightful. The staff were attentive (but not overpowering!) and the atmosphere was lovely. All-in-all, Cinnamons is highly recommended!
We had a lovely evening, the food and service was excellent. We had one vegan and one vegetarian in our group and that wasn't a problem. With at least eight vegan options we were spoil for choice. Couldn't fault it. Many thanks Cinnamons, we will be back!
Excellent food and service. Each dish was substantial size and very varied. The Indian wine we had we all enjoyed and it was very reasonable priced. The proprietor realised it was someone's birthday and at the end of the meal he came with the cake and candle , a large indoor sparkler! A lovely surprise. A super evening was had by all. We can certainly recommend the Indian restaurant in Axminster? We will be back.
Great food and a friendly service! Just perfect! Will definately go to Cinnamons again and must try their take away delivery service, which is an excellent idea!
my first time here the food VERY GOOD !!!! only problem I live over 400 miles away in Sheffield but I am going to return on next holiday in Axminster counting the months till next time I would highly recommend this place to anyone !!!!!!!!!!!! EXCELENT . RITA
The quality and presentation of the dishes is extremely good. What let's the restaurant down is the awful lack of basic professional displayed by the front of house. The waitress knew nothing about the dishes on offer. No effort was made to stand next to the person being served with a dish. Too many tables in a relatively small space.
Nice decor. Terse service style. Large menu, so spent a while choosing. Then what arrives is meat in a gloopy sauce. Little character or clarity of flavour. Pilau rice a disgrace. Probably a micro-wave or boil in the bag, with grains coloured with food colouring and a token half a teaspoon of cardamomy flavoured onion on top. Be fair, meat itself was OK. Slow-cooked lamb was fine (but the cook should have removed the connective tissue, not me), duck was fine. Just over £40 for 2 - included one shared starter (utterly tasteless king-prawn in a korma-ish sauce), 2 popadoms, 2 fruit juices. Should have been better.
Very good food but service could have been better. There was quite a delay in ordering drinks, receiving our drinks and clearing away unwanted dishes. This however did not spoil the evening as the food more than made up for this inconvenience.
Our favourite Indian where the service is good and the food fresh and tasty .Chefs special dishes are just that ..special Free evening car parking right behind the restaurant too ...
Always great food and a friendly atmosphere As a gourmet card holder one of our main courses was free of charge ....a bonus which means we could give a generous tip
We had a great evening with delicious food, and very pleasant staff. It will be very easy to recommend this restaurant. It was a birthday celebration, and memorable.
Great food ,hot and tasty with no shocking bill at the end ... Our favourite curry house and our second visit this week Well done
Great restaurant with freshy cooked delicious food and an interesting menu Friiendly staff and very reasonably priced Carpark right behind free after 18.00 Highly recommended
Excellent food and good friendly service in a pleasant informal environment.warm welcome from the hosts and plenty of attention to detail. This was the latest of many enjoyable visits.
Very good food and great service. All the food was very flavoursome and we were well looked after by the hosts so good and would definitely go back.
Great local restaurant with a very varied menu .. And garlic nan to ward of vampires..delicious Busy and with take away option A favourite curry house
Starters were full of flavour, the main courses were tasty and generous and the staff were attentive and helpful. A very pleasant evening in nice surroundings.
Really nice food!! The only criticism I have is the restaurant is quite small and we went on a particularly warm night!l 😁 Definitely worth going though 👍
Food was served in normal ceramic bowls and not traditional Indian dishes, food went cold quite quickly. We were not asked if we wanted to take our leftovers home. Very disappointed considering how much much it cost. Will not return.
