The Cinnamon Tree has an excellent reputation among Cardiff’s food-lovers, and is known as one of the city’s finest Indian restaurants. However, the history behind the success of this restaurant, which continues to flourish under the careful supervision of the Uzzaman brothers, is a lesser-known story. Their grandfather opened the family’s first restaurant on Woodville Road in Cardiff in the 1960s. A second restaurant, The Roath Tandoori, opened in 1984 and quickly made a name for itself in the area.
It was here that Mrs Uzzaman introduced her sons to traditional Indian home cooking, and with her guidance the four brothers learned the art of Indian cuisine. The brothers’ extensive, deep-rooted knowledge of Indian cooking, coupled with their excellent understanding of good customer service, are the ingredients that make The Cinnamon Tree restaurants such a success.
With an emphasis on family history and tradition, recipes passed down through generations, and exotic ingredients, The Cinnamon Tree offers exceptional food and an unrivalled atmosphere. It’s easy to see why curry aficionados have taken these restaurants to their hearts. Book a table tonight – The Cinnamon Tree is waiting to welcome you.
