Welcoming staff and great food

I dropped in around 9.30pm on a Tuesday evening, and I was welcomed by the friendly staff. The menu was quite extensive, but I chose a favourite - Chicken Tikka Balti with Aloo Gobi and a Nan. The portion size was very good, and with poppadoms and a coke, the bill came to less than £18. All in... read more

We regularly both use the take-away service and dine in at the Cardamom restaurant. The staff are unfailingly pleasant and give first-class service. I can't resist choosing the same meal most times but my family who choose other dishes are never disappointed. The value for money is excellent and i can recommend the restaurant without any reservation

Staff very friendly, slight glitches in service (some items arriving later than main meal) but food very good, would definitely go again.

Enjoyed another family meal at the Cardamom. The restaurant is on the first floor but for people with mobility problems there is a chair lift - though not sure if it works or not, might be worth a call if you need it! Having visited before we knew it doesn't have a licence and took our own beer. The food... More

I had not been to this place for years but had occasion to dine there early last Saturday with friends. I cannot recall what I thought of it last time but my view on this visit is that its a nice curry house. Good choice menu, the staff were very friendly & helpful & the food was good. As the... More

We were on a short stop over visit in Alcester and wanted a decent place to celebrate a birthday. We were reluctant to have a pub meal (there is an abundance of local pubs) so were fairly limited in our options. We took a chance on the Cardamom restaurant and we're glad we did. We arrived early (about 5:30) so... More

I've dined here several times as part of a large group and I've always found the food to be OK but a bit bland and lacking in flavour. It is clear a lot of the curry dishes come from the same onion and spice base as sometimes it's difficult to differentiate between different dishes. The starters tend to be tasty... More

Mon nights are dead in most towns but there were about 10 people in this pleasantly furnished restaurant at 7.30pm so about right.plain popodams with mint yogert and mango and chopped onion got us going.

We often go here not only as it is local but also very good. Cannot complain about either the food or service. The restaurant offers a full range from mild to hot curries. I believe they better represent the food I have had in India as being not to 'blow your mind out hot' but good use of spices to... More

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 random complimentary treat in with the order... More
