Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Good food, good value, friendly attentive staff, nice ambience - what more could we want! Convenient free parking too, which is a bonus these days.

Only been to this place once before and the food/service was exceptional. We’ve just had a takeaway from there tonight. Food was fantastic, delivery was prompt and the driver a lovely guy and they included a load of extras we didn’t ask for. They certainly...deliver on every level at this place. Highly recommendedMore

We visited Cardamon on the spur of the moment and found it to be very enjoyable indeed. The portion sizes were extremely large so it was really good value for money. The food was excellent and extremely tasty. Two of us had dishes that we...had never heard of before. The restaurant does not have a license so we could not have an alcoholic drink while we were there. If we had of known we could’ve popped to the off-licence and picked up a couple of cans of beer. On the whole, it was a great choice and if we were in the area again we would return.More

We went on a Sunday evening on the spur of the moment and were very glad we did as this place was recommended to us by a family member. The welcome was nice and the environment was very pleasant. Nice and clean. We did not...have starters but did have mains, naan and rice which were tasty and really good. The Balti was spiced perfectly, nice and hot and the vegetable dishes were spot on. The service was prompt and professional. We are looking forward to frequenting this restaurant again.More

New to Alcester and tried a takeaway from here for the first time, the food arrived early, was piping hot, and every dish tasted amazing, the chicken tikka naga was superb and had a nice kick to it, will definitely be eating here regularly, excellent.

After visiting the same Indian restaurant for many years my family suggested we try a change. I am so glad I listened to them. These guys know what they're doing. I like my food spicy and with colour and fresh tastes. The chicken jalfrezi, vindaloo...hot was absolutely amazing. I cannot fault the dining experience here.More

We've been here a few times as the owner and his team are so friendly and welcoming. It has a typical Indian restaurant menu, showing speciality dishes. This place doesn't have a licence, so only soft drinks are available. There is, however, a Waitrose just...across the road, and this is also the best place to park as the restaurant is situated on a busy roundabout.More

The food here is lovely. Lived in the area for 3 years and this was our first time having a takeaway from Cardamom, I mentioned this and to my surprise when I got home they had given me a free starter of onion bhaji. We...are not adventurous with Indian food so just had a chicken tikka curry and a keema naan. Very tasty, it was hot and the big container was full. Will definitely be returning.More
