Description: We opened our doors for business in November 2012 with the solid ambition to serve high quality authentic Indian cuisine in Petts wood. Indian food over time has escaped the European misunderstanding or notion of ‘one sauce fits all’ and has been recognised for the rich dining experience with all the wonderful potent flavours of Subcontinent Cardamom Petts Wood wanted to contribute to the Indian food awakening and so when a suitable premise came available in Kent at the heart of a busy London suburb, Cardamom Petts Woods Restaurant as it is today was born. The Cardamom team will happily espouse the many virtues of their style of cooking, dedicated to balance and care of the body. Our staff hail from many regions of India, each person holding an academic catering qualification and/or experience in a 5* hospitality setting in a Indian Restaurant. Each guest of Cardamom Restaurant is welcomed individually and with great enthusiasm. We will always take great care that a novice Indian diner, a seasoned foodie and of course our precious regulars experience true Indian hospitality. Our promise is that every guest on every occasion at Cardamom will enjoy the choice of dishes, the appropriate wines, the history of our regions and the overall restaurant experience.

Decided to try this relatively new restaurant in Petts Wood on a girls night out. It was a Thursday and we didn't book a table which wasn't a problem. The restaurant were just over half full. The staff were very friendly from welcoming us at the door all the way through the evening.
The food was delicious. The wine very reasonably priced.
The only thing that's letting it down is the atmosphere of the restaurant itself. No pictures on the walls made it slightly "echoey".
I'd definitely go back and I will happily recommend this place to friends.
They also do take aways.

Went last night and only 2 tables on the go when we got there. We waited quite a while for drinks to be taken then orders and for the food to arrive. However the service is excelent, attentive and inobtrusive. The food is fantastic fresh, spicy, flavoursome and a wide expansive menu. Menu so wide it does take a while to decide, not a bad problem to have. Overall excellent so well worth a visit, this was our second, and we will be back.

Cardamom is a cut above other local Indian restaurants. Its friendly and welcoming owners serve some of the best food I've ever tasted. I have visited four times now, and have sampled a wide variety of delicious dishes - would thoroughly recomend the haryali, the chicken pistachio paneer masala, pumpkin duck and shashlick bhuna. The green beans fogath, Gujarati pumpkin and Dum Tori are to die for and the peshwari naan is the best I've ever tasted. Additionally the wine list is fantastic and well chosen to compliment Indian food.
