Delicious curry!

Stopped here (again) looking for that special curry to take to the beach to consume while watching the waves! This place is great. Fabulous salads which they are happy to combine with a curry choice. Environmentally safe packaging as well. They do not accept any cards...cash only. Worth it though...

After arriving in Byron Bay, we asked someone to recommend us a salad bar and the guy said try 'The Cardamom Pod' so we came here, and cant tell you how glad we are that we did... Small place but it has such a nice, relaxing & calm feel to it. The clsssical Indian music is soothing to ears, smell... More

We happened upon this small veggie cafe yesterday evening in Byron and were amazed by the wonderful quality of the food for such a reasonable price! Small, friendly environment with indoor and outdoor seating. The food was really tasty regardless of whether you're vegetarian or not. We had a selection of Indian style food and there were other unspicey foods... More

Great vegetarian food and a warm place filled with Krishnas blessings. The down side is the staff are 'hot and cold'.. Lack customer service. It's a,right if it's a complimentary meal cafe but when your paying for meals .. No excuse for poor service.

While staying in Byron Bay i googled veggie cafes and stumbled on the Cardomom, so went and tried it out. Nestled down into an arcade, i ventured in for dinner and saw the many choices.

This is a fabulous little eatery- I'm not a vegetarian but I loved the food here- it was fresh, delicious and healthy... It offers awesome value for money and everybody in my group of 6 ( including 2 vegetarians) were impressed.... I'll be back !

If you are vegan or vegetarian, then this place is a must as it meets all your needs. If you're not either of those it is still a great place to eat. The staff are wonderfully warm and will help in choosing a great meal. A must when I visit Byron Bay.
