We've been to this restaurant a couple of times before but never had a starter so decided to share onion bhaji s after having poppadoms. After finishing the poppadoms we were asked if we wanted our main,we explained we'd not had the starters. The waiter apologised and gave us two onion bhajis, we said we only ordered one but they...

Food is decent and portions are healthy. It's BYOB and all of the staff are very attentive regarding this. It also means it's seriously cheap, which is pleasantly refreshing in these parts.

The staff are exceptionally friendly and very keen to please and ensure that you are satisfied with your choice and their success in meeting your expectation. A n excellent choice of "Indian" cuisine at reasonable prices. Particularly good value as it is not licensed and you need to bring your own alcoholic drinks.

Having eaten curries/baltis in places such as Birmingham Manchester and Bradford as well as abroad I have to say that Cardamom always comes top of my list, the menu covers most tastes and the service is always attentive but not overly so. I am a frequent visitor to the restaurant and have on only one occasion experienced a poor meal... More

We found this restaurant last year by chance whilst trading at a food festival near by. I classed it as one of my best curries then and had to try it again this year to ensure it wasn't a fluke! It didn't disappoint, another great curry and I compare this to my home city of Manchester where we have so... More

Good service. You can do better than re-heated base sauce with chicken in Alcester......nice clean venue but when it comes to food there are other choices in the town.

We tried Cardamon for the first time as they deliver to Aston Cantlow which is generally a delivery black spot. When we ordered we were told that they were very busy and the delivery would be a hour. It was actually more like 1.5 hours but the driver was incredibly apologetic and said they had included lots of freebies, he... More
