Why go anywhere else!
This place is fantastic. The Food is immense and the atmosphere is brilliant. We come twice a year when seeing family and we always have so much fun. The staff are friendly and helpful and again the food is mouth watering and the spices and colouring.. well proper indian food. Well worth a visit.

Apprehensive before visiting due to extremes of reviews but thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Not very busy (it was a Wednesday) but menu was interesting and varied, very low prices and BYO meant a significant saving and own choice compared to licensed premises. Total bill was £48 for 4 of us although we stuck with papadoms and pickles tray for starter and a main course with naan breads for main. Portions were very generous and my garlic chilli chicken was exceptionally tasty too - although heavily loaded with fresh green chillies these were not overly hot and did not kill the other flavours. Companions all similarly impressed. On departure was given a discount voucher for next visit!

We bypass the Stratford and Henly-in-Arden curry houses to come here, as the food is far superior.
They will always give you the extra touch, more sauce, recommendations, and then you might get an additional vegetable course thrown in.
Special offers on Monday and Tuesday evening with a fixed price of £10 for three courses, and as you can bring your own alcohol, always makes for a cheap night out.
Recommended, and have been coming here for years.

I use Trip Advisor whenever I travel but dont usually bother to look locally, after all i am in the know!
However i did look today, unusually, and could not believe the mixed reviews given to the Cardamon. We have been eating here regularly for 3+ years. The food is wonderful, interesting and always beautifully cooked. We love the fact that we can bring our own wine or beer which helps to make this an affordable experience. We also ask for and are served with a jug of water willingly. On Mondays and Tuesdays there is a wonderful £10 deal, poppadums and pickles, a choice of starters and a choice of ANYTHING on their menu that does not include King Prawns... with rice or naan bread. We went tonight, Sunday. No special deal. poppadums and pickles; Lamb dansak, Chicken Kulkani,(madras hot not standard) 2 x chefs special bhuna (one hot and one mild) 3 pilau rice berween 4... and a bill under £50.

The staff will often make the dish special for you, eg. we always order " with extra sauce" and sometimes ask for the dish to be extra hot, or extra mild; or could it have spinach added? or could it include methl? We have NEVER had a bad meal and regularly take friends; all of whom say it is the best Indian food in the area.

Can be busy on Fridays and Saturdays. So from choice we choose to go when less busy. Sraff are very attentive, and willing to advise/ adapt according to individual tastes.
