After paying $25 for two large takeaways, we were so incredibly disappointed with the lack of food that existed in our takeaway containers.

Had dinner here early this month and found the range and pricing of the food to be very good. Service was pleasant and quick. Also do try some of their raw food desserts, it's amazing what's in them and how they taste. I had the raw Tiramisu.

We say the restaurant sign board and was really interested to give it a try. It is a very small place but serves very tasty good vegetarian Indian food. Their servings were also quite generous. We very much enjoyed eating in this restaurant.

We visited our favourite little lunch venue in Byron again this week. Even though it is vegetarian, the cafe it a favourite for both my husband and myself, with neither of us being vegetarian. The kofta balls delighted yet again and this time, we introduced the kids to them...with great feedback also. It is well priced too.

This is a great, quiet tucked away spot. The service is friendly and down-to-earth and the vegetarian food is delicious and wholesome.

We recently stayed overnight in Byron Bay and chanced upon the Cardamom Pod. We elected to have the four choice selection and chose kofta balls, Malaysian veggie curry, bean curry and veggies. Everything was absolutely delicious and very reasonably priced. The staff were wonderful too - friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back next time we visit Byron.
