What they say:
Superstar on the Indian food scene Vivek Singh has been impressing people with Cinnamon Kitchen in the city for awhile, and now he’s the latest person to set up shop in the Grade II-listed landmark redevelopment of Battersea Power Station. Set in a railway arch, the interior combines the urban aesthetics of the original site with the sleek style of the Cinnamon Kitchen brand. There’s also a suntrap outdoor terrace with a view of the Thames, as well as a private mezzanine dining room for events.
What we say:
You can expect even more seasonal Indian dishes at the latest venue, with dishes like Rajathani lamb curry, as well as chargrilled seabass in a banana leaf parcel. Typically, there are choice selections for vegetarians and vegans, such as bitter melon with buckwheart and amaranth seeds. Meanwhile, their cocktail list is curated by award-winning mixologist Tony Conigliaro – known around London for his, and I quote, ‘liquid witchcraft’ – and he’s delivering an Indian-inspired, spiced craft cocktails. Expect to find unique drinks like an Indian twist on the classic Mexican sangrita called Mezcal Verdita, made from fresh pineapple and curry leaves.
