Cardamom Indian Restaurant

We went to the Cardamom Indian Restaurant for Faye's 58th birthday meal on Saturday night. The Cardamom is located at 442c Cowbridge Road East, on the corner of Victoria Park in the Canton district of Cardiff. A table for 8 people was booked and we all had a very nice meal and a great time celebrating Faye's birthday.

For my starter I had the Sheek Kebab which was nice and tasty. For my main course I had the Lamb Anawaka with Pilau Rice and a Peshwari Naan bread. The Lamb Anawaka is simply gorgeous, as curries go it is at the dry end of the spectrum. It is not a saucy curry but a well cooked dish that is full of flavour. This is a world away from the common or garden curries like the Tikka Masala and the Balti. The Lamb Anawaka is quite dry but to my palate it is simply beautiful. This is a meal I will be very happy to eat again.

The quality of food at the Cardamom is top rate and this restaurant has a good reputation. The Cardamom was a runner-up in the Welsh section of the British Curry Awards 2008 and having enjoyed their Lamb Anawaka so much, I can see why this restaurant wins awards.

So, I wonder whose birthday it is next and where they will choose to go?
