Delicious takeaway

Worth the round trip to Alcester for one of their takeaways! The food isn't swimming in ghee when you open the containers and nothing is a suspicious colour. Everything we've tried has been well spiced, good amount of decent meat, the veg rice is proper veg rice, good portion sizes. Always get a... read more

Food ok but just to make people aware that this restaurant has been recently prosecuted for selling beef as lamb, have a look in the Warwickshire news, a lamb meal was found to be 99% beef

Very ordinary food, had more taste out of a Maggie packet, shortly after eating at the restaurant, there was a newspaper report saying that they had substituted beef for lamb in a curry dish, which I must agree is strange as lamb is cheaper to buy. The attitude of carelessness was ver obvious, I did not enjoy my visit.

Have both eaten in and taken away many times, very nice, simple Indian food, staff always very attentive. There is not much choice when it comes to takeaways in the area, but this is one of the best there are.

Popped in with two friends midweek. Nothing special - pretty standard stuff as you would expect from an Indian. Meal was ok. It wouldn't be my first choice of place to eat. It's bring your own alcohol, so don't forget that! One thing I don't like is, they have a tv on an Indian music channel, and it's on a... More

We visited the Cardamom Indian before an event at my sons school, it was the first time we had visited this restaurant. The restaurant doesn't have a licence so only serves non alcoholic drinks, though you may bring your own and if you forget waitrose is across the road. We had our standard popadoms which were average. We all enjoyed... More

Over a year since last reviewed. Visited this place last week and can only say the food gets better. All 3 of us thought that the meal last week was the best yet. Service was good and prices very acceptable. Guess where we will be eating next time in Alcester!!!

It serves quite good Indian food but that is all I can say about it. The food is tasty but not inspiring but at least the safe option is also a safe bet. You have to take your own drinks as they do not have a license but fortunately there is a Waitrose over the road for your convenience. Must... More

Probably worth checking they are not fully booked - been quite a few times - good selection of Indian food (couple of English dishes for anyone who does not like spicy food). Restaurant does at the time of our visits hold an alcohol license - so bring your own!
