Visited as a couple early on Saturday evening, staff friendly (perhaps overly so). Portions generous - side-vegatable dishes particularly. Service reasonably prompt. On the downside, dishes were rather same-y, eg no strong distinguishing flavour to my Methi. Chillies shone through on Jalfrezi though! BTW note no licence - bring your own booze. Overall I'd be happy to visit again, competent... More

The service is always wonderful and friendly at the cardamom. Although I suspect they have a few different base sauces they work from to make the curries they always turn out completely different and all have wonderful presentation. You are also given a heated tray to keep your food hot. Service is always fast so if you are wanting a... More

Went to this restaurant on Friday for the first time, what a fabulous place, staff extremely friendly, food outstanding the potions were large but staff very willing to put left overs into boxes for you to take with you. The restaurant is nicely decorated and nothing is to much for the staff. You can tell that the food is freshly... More

First visit to the restaurant which is one the first floor above shops. One flight of stairs and a stair lift for those with mobility problems. Nicely decorated in modern style with round tables and leather chairs.Toilets were clean & fresh and there was a decked balcony for those who want to smoke. Staff were friendly and nothing was too...

I can't believe having lived only 2 miles from here for the last 41/2 years I had been missing out on this place. First impressions are how very clean the dining area is and a very friendly and welcoming all the staff are. The food was spot on. To be honest I would have expected to pay more money. The... More

I hadn't been to Cardamom for some time, before my visit for a friend's birthday this weekend. I went to school in Alcester and we often visited the Cardamom for birthdays, so a friend of mine decided to make her birthday a mini-reunion and have a meal at the restaurant. There were about 18 of us overall, and considering that... More

I may be biased because I live within easy walking distance of Cardamom, but I have yet to find more tastier food & such friendly service, whether takeaway or dine in. The overall service is first class & consistently reliable, my family & friends always look forward to our next meal with this restaurant. No dish has ever disappointed me,... More

After some extensive TripAdvisor research and location scouting we decided to venture down to Cardamom. We were greeted by a young chap who was very chatty and polite, we had no reservation but were almost immediately seated and soon had our drinks ordered. As the restaurant began to fill a different waiter came and took our food order, the original... More

We had a takeaway tonight from cardamom I had lamb balti and sag alloo and it was the best takeaway i have eaten I think it my life. The lamb literally fell apart it was so tender and very tasty. They even threw in popadoms and was very good value for money. I have been to the cardamom on many... More
