love the lamb chops, and the salads, great choice of fish and vegetarian options, good atmosphere.
service can overlap, waiters need to stay to stations

had a great meal... fish starter to share is very nice... staff very attentive ... but a little rushed in getting u in and out...but check your bill... tried billing us for drinks we did not have . after 10 mins of trying to sort it out.. one waiter had put down L for large beer and who ever does the bills thought it was a 2.... always check your bill...

This is our second visit to the Cardamom Black restaurant ,and yet again we had another perfect evening,walking through the doors into the beautiful place of glitter and glamour,the staff are professional and discreet,they make you feel as you are their only customer,nothing is too much trouble,And the food,the best starter ever ,seabass marinated with chilli and garlic etc,even the spinach pilah is delicious,and then main course and made exactly to your personal palate.
This is not only the best restaurant for celebrations,but the prices are so reasonable,that it can be a regular treat.Well done to all the fantastic staff at Cardamom Black.

Please avoid and go somewhere pleasant.
As the title suggests, it looks good but fails on all levels, especially the aggressive and nasty management (owner).
We made this special trip with friends to share a few days in the lovely Harrogate and suggested we try the restaurant. Unfortunately to our surprise the the lack of attentive service and wrongly served foods. You should always know that when a server places dips and relishes on the table before you are fully settled and asks "four popadom" before yelling you what they are they are after money. Good service and proper restaurants don't do this.
The word curry house spring to mind when writing this but that would be a disservice to any curry house.
The main course of half a chicken on the bone on a sizzler arrived as well as the others, apart from the sizzler and the chicken breast that was served to out friend as his meal. We tried to ask serve why, but alas rebuffed and advise to ask waiter who took the order. In the modern world people take responsibly for there actions and don't pass the buck but the server was only the start. The waiter said speak to the management the management said the server doesn't speak English and customer don't like sizzling platters. Yet still no response as to why this was on the menu and why the chicken breast had jumped to another plate.
We sent back food and tried to talk to management as we left but were ignored and then told some wonderful story.
It was interesting to see that same night how many other tables had complaints and issues. Please do you self a favour and dine elsewhere, there is lots of choice and far far better service.
Avoid avoid avoid or you may get treat like we were.
But do try Palm Court where the food and service are exceptional, maybe tey could help train people and management here.
