Vivek Singh’s The Cinnamon Collection Dubai is a two-year multi-brand residency, during which time The Collection’s three distinct dining concepts – The Cinnamon Club, Cinnamon Kitchen and Cinnamon Bazaar – will each debut in Dubai.
Starting with Cinnamon Bazaar, the restaurant space has been redesigned to bring Vivek’s signature concept to the Middle East. Conceptualised to evoke the hustle and bustle of a bazaar, the interiors will combine bright patterned tiling, luxurious gold touches, hanging lanterns and Cinnamon Bazaar’s signature vibrant drapery.
The menu will feature Indian dishes with global flavours to mirror the cultural melting pot of ancient and modern bazaars
Dishes such as lamb rogan josh shepherd’s pie; and grilled aubergine with sesame peanut crumble, labneh and toasted buckwheat will sit alongside a selection of market-inspired chaats, offer a cross-cultural dining experience.
In Spring 2022, the restaurant will transform into Cinnamon Kitchen, before The Cinnamon Club arrives in Autumn 2022 as the third and final part of the residency.

Vivek Singh, executive chef and founder of The Cinnamon Collection, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Park Hyatt Dubai and excited to be able to bring all three brands to Dubai. This year marks the 20th anniversary of our first restaurant, The Cinnamon Club, so it feels like a fitting moment to extend our brand reach overseas. It’s a pleasure to be working with Park Hyatt Dubai which, like The Cinnamon Collection, has a longstanding and deserved reputation for excellence. We look forward to welcoming a new group of diners when we open our doors in September.”
Founded by Vivek Singh in 2001, The Cinnamon Collection is a family of four restaurants located in London – The Cinnamon Club (opened in 2001), Cinnamon Kitchen City (opened in 2008), Cinnamon Bazaar in Covent Garden (opened in 2016) and Cinnamon Kitchen Battersea (2017). Widely recognised as the founder of modern Indian fine dining in London, Vivek’s signature culinary style marries modern Indian flavours with western techniques to offer traditional dishes with a 21st-century sensibility. Alongside three individual restaurant concepts, Vivek is the author of six cookbooks and a regular face on television and live cookery events across the country.
Luis Cobo, hotel manager, Park Hyatt Dubai, says: “Elevating and evolving our restaurant portfolio has always been a core business goal and, to be working with a chef of Vivek’s calibre, reputation and talent is a dream come true for us. We could not have imagined a better brand partner and are confident that The Cinnamon Collection’s success in London will be emulated in Dubai when we open the restaurant later this year.”
