Cinnamon Restaurant had its grand opening day last Thursday. Considering it was only Day 3, the restaurant was pretty crowded. I love Indian cuisine, but I rarely enjoy it in the Hudson Valley. We definitely need more Indian restaurants here!
I started off with the mulligatawny soup. My husband had the Ceylon chile chicken. For my main dish, I ordered the tandoori chicken, and my husband had the chicken tikka masala. The bread was kind of strange. I was surprised to see that the cheese nan was stuffed with American cheese. Any other cheese would have been more exciting, but still I liked the nan better than the roti. The tandoori chicken was perfectly cooked and arrived sizzling on a platter with onions. It was a very generous portion so I didn't have any room for dessert. The servers were very friendly, but the service was a bit slow. There are always kinks to work out the first week a restaurant opens, which is why I usually try to wait a month, but I love Indian food so much that I couldn't wait!
The server told me that they will be offering lunch buffets and a dinner buffet on the weekend so stay tuned! I will definitely return. Can anybody out there recommend a good Indian restaurant in the Hudson Valley?
