Spring will see the launch of a brand new dining concept in Soho from the award-winning Tamarind Collection. Look forward to enchanting Indian cuisine in a stunning setting.

The heartbeat of any Indian home is its kitchen; the place where family and friends come together to talk, eat and relax. Inspired by this idea, Tamarind Kitchen will bring a convivial Indian dining experience to the heart of buzzy Soho, complete with sumptuous dishes that reimagine the award-winning cuisine of Tamarind Mayfair and tailor them to the Soho diner.

Tamarind Kitchen menus will present a stunning array of fish, meat, game and vegetarian dishes — many of which arrive fresh from the kitchen’s authentic Tandoor oven. Tantalising tastebuds from the moment you sit down, starter dishes include Makai Kachumber, a vibrant corn and vegetable salad lifted by a chat masala dressing and Karara Kekda, soft shell crab with potato salad and homemade pickles. The flavour explosion continues with some irresistible kababs, such as the Game Platter, which serves tandoor-cooked quail, duck and guinea fowl on a bed of vermicelli.

Mains appeal to all palates and include Guchchhee Kofta, morel mushroom and pea dumplings in a spiced creamy sauce; Hydrabadi Gosht, slow-cooked lamb in a browned onion sauce flavoured with Kashmiri chilli and a traditional South Indian Alappuzha Fish Curry with Kingfish and spiced with tamarind, mustard and curry leaves, all accompanied by a selection of Tamarind’s signature rice, breads and dips.

The 100-cover restaurant will span two floors, featuring a private dining room for up to twenty guests and a subterranean cocktail bar for late night drinking. Its interiors, designed by Russell Sage Studios, blend soulful touches (in keeping with the Indian kitchen concept) with the sophisticated — as befits the sister restaurant of the palatial Tamarind of Mayfair. And attention to detail has not been bypassed with the tabletop choices: each handpicked item reflects the modern diner’s appetite for simple, yet stylish elegance. Sourcing from four artisan producers - including Studio Mattes, a celebrated Belgium-based stoneware supplier – the plates have been carefully selected to show off the colours and curves of the forward- thinking Indian dishes

Set to be the destination of the spring, Tamarind Kitchen looks forward to welcoming diners to a rich and resplendent setting of quiet elegance to sample delicious, contemporary Indian dishes from the expertly crafted menus.

toastie[2] 2Did you have one of those toasty machines? We did, we would make toasty everything - cheese ones, bacon and cheese ones, egg ad cheese ones (you know you can crack an egg right into those bad boys raw and close that lid down - you can thank us later)

So, in the spirit of toasty maker love banish burgers and move on from not-so-hotdogs, London’s latest food trend is the gourmet toastie – and Cinnamon Soho is leading the way with a whole menu of crispy on the outside, gooey on the inside toasted delights to try out!

From the people who brought you the world’s hottest curry, put your taste buds to the test with the exclusive Bombay Burner toastie (£7.75). Dubbed as the world’s hottest toastie and featuring a Scotch Bonnet level of spice this one isn’t for the faint-hearted!

If you can’t stand the heat, try the Kadhai Spiced Crab (£6), with tomato and tamarind or the Keema Gotala (£6) spiced lamb mince with scrambled egg. Alternatively, for a unique spin on the classic cheese toastie, try the South Indian Spiced Potato (£4.75) with cheese and red onion.

To finish, cool down with a deliciously refreshing shake (£4.50 each). Choose from Banana, Strawberry, Mango or Coffee.

All toasties are available to eat in or take away, so make sure you’re in the midst of the latest foodie movement and stop by for one of Cinnamon Soho’s spicy, summer toasties!

cinnamon soho easter menu

Very soon it will be time to pig out on all sorts of chocolate eggs without feeling any form of guilt. Something else you can indulge in without any guilt this month is the new Easter menu at Cinnamon Soho.

This menu will hopefully act as a rest bite from all the chocolate flying around as it is a savoury option.

"Known for their signature menu of Indian balls including the popular Bangla Scotch Egg, the Soho restaurant will offer a three course menu for £30 from March 29th to April 1st.

Egg-inspired dishes include crab and cod balls, lamb kofta curry, aromatic-spiced meatballs filled with soft-boiled egg and red onion sauce, Bengali-spiced vegetable balls and mango and pistachio kulfi. And to wash it down, try the Easter Egg Flip cocktail made with cognac, Baileys, Tawny Port and egg white."
