Cinnamon Culture, Sundridge Park

I was lucky enough to dine at Cinnamon Culture on Saturday night with five other friends. The restaurant wasn't busy but we didn't turn up until 9:45pm so this may be why! The restaurant is large and airy with very well spaced out tables and very friendly, helpful staff.

We all chose completely different dishes to start with and the starters are very small. We are talking a few dainty mouthfuls per person! Mine was the rhubarb prawn, which were two prawns marinated in rhubarb and cardamom with a mixed berry chutney and the flavors worked extremely well together. I also got to try the hubby's lamb chops with a spicy green chutney. The soft shell crab looked absolutely delicious and I will definitely try that next time.

For the main course I had the chicken Makhani, which was chicken tikka cooked in a creamy tomato gravy with honey and fenugreek and it was amazing. There was plenty to choose from though with everything from scallops to prawns, goat to boar and even buffalo. It was a really fun and interesting menu and made for a very different Indian dining experience.

We ordered four naan's, three rice and a side of bombay aloo between six of us, which was enough food, we were all comfortably full but not totally stuffed.

We didn't have any desserts but we had two bottles of white wine at £25 per bottle and three Limoncello's. The total bill including service was £40 per head, which for what we had, had I thought was reasonable. 

The restaurant is a stones throw from Sundridge Park train station and a short cab ride from Grove Park and the Bromley stations too. There is parking on side streets for free, which is available first come, first served.

If you are ever in this area I can definitely recommend giving this restaurant a try. They also do take away for those that prefer to eat at home.
