“Modern Decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

We went to this restaurant on the evening of 2nd Sept. We were pleasantly surprised at the lovely modern black and red decor when we arrived. The restaurant is upstairs, but I noticed there was a stairlift, so the location should not present a problem to anyone who cannot manage stairs.
The staff were very polite and friendly, providing excellent service. The menu had an extensive choice of dishes, with explanations on what they contained, very thoughtful!
Every dish we had was served piping hot, and promptly.
Very reasonable prices too. This restaurant is not licensed to serve alcohol, but I think you can take your own. Check first though if you prefer an alcoholic drink with your lovely Indian meal.
Well worth a visit if you are in the Alcester area.

“Quality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

Nothing negative to say - excellent food, attentive service and nice atmosphere.
Bring your own alcohol makes the cost relative to a take-away but with the added bonus of the resturant service and, of course, the music.

“Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

A frienly atmosphere and warm welcome. Good food which distances itself from other similar resturants of the same type. The king prawns really are king size and the chef's specials are the highlight of the menu. My children always enjoy a visit here.

“Excellent food, lovely staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We eat regularly at the Cardamom. The food is always excellent and the staff very friendly. It is a good place for families, we are all made very welcome. The fact that it is BYO means the final bill is not a shock!!

“Best Indian Restaurant in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

As regulars to the Cardamom we believe its the best Indian restuarant in the area. The food is great and excellent value for money. We recommend something off the "chefs special" range. Another advantage of dining here, you can take your own alcoholic drinks. The staff are lovely and always friendly and helpful. We chose this restaurant above others to take friends visiting the area. In general they always leave not only full but very impressed.
