We were so impressed with our Anglo-Indian breakfast at Cinnamon Kitchen last month that, when we heard about this month's “Coastal” menu, we knew we should give it a go (if only to see if their evening offerings would live up to the same tasty standards as the Bombay scrambled eggs and kedgeree with smoked haddock and poached egg we sampled). The new three-course set seafood menu, available throughout August at £45 per person was expressive in flavour and (although a bit of a splurge) well worth the cost. Every dish - from the tuna and scallop ceviche starter to the citrus tapioca kheer with mango, mandarin & chilli sorbet for dessert - wowed us. Really, we could rave about every bite but we'll spare you the blathering. However, allow us to say that the chargrilled Nile perch with chilli and lime was exquisite and meaty with plenty of pleasantly surprising notes. Londonist sincerely hopes head chef Abdul Yaseen and
executive chef Vivek Singh consider making it an a la carte regular. Should the occasion arise to celebrate or you're simply looking for a good excuse to indulge in a quality meal this month, keep this modern and stylish Indian restaurant's “Coastal” menu in mind.
