We regularly make a forty mile round trip to eat at the Cardamom. This is definitely our favourite Indian restaurant within our area. The menu is extensive and the portions are huge but this doesn't deter from quality which is as good as it gets. A further advantage is being able to take in your owner drinks which obviously helps... More

This is my first negative review on trip advisor but, I feel it necessary. For the money spent, this food was bland and tasteless and no where near worthy of the money spent on it. Considering myself and my two daughters were in there with only one other family I thought more effort would have gone into making our 3... More

I went to this restaurant with my husband and we enjoyed a really nice curry and tandoori meal. Everything tasted freshly made and the service was very good. We've eaten here before and it's always a high standard. Bringing your own bottle can help to keep costs down so it's a reasonably priced dining experience in the centre of Alcester... More

Went to the cardamom on the 8th Oct with friends. Restaurant set out beautifully. Staff friendly but professional Menu very extensive and when ordering any changes for personal tastes was catered for. The food was absolutely amazing. Beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. Portions were large! Staff were attentive but not intrusive while we were eating. The cost was a surprise.... More

This was a very busy night at the Cardomom and there was a bit of a wait between being seated and the order been taken. Once the food arrived the wait was well worthwhile the House byriani was scrumptious. Nice place good food and pleasant staff. Where do they get their prawns from, they seem to be the size of...

Bang on time, great service. The food was amazing love the fact I found a curry house that isn't stingy with the amount of chicken in the curry. Oh and not to forget they give free complimentary pakora! Amazing.

Spur of the moment visit on a Wednesday evening. We went early and were glad we did as it filled up later. Nice decor and a very enthusiastic welcome. We had poppadums, starters, mains and sides, but to be honest we couldn't eat it all, the portions are generous. Our starters were beautifully presented and very good. Our waiter warned... More

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...
