Cardamom Black Takeout Review*

Monday, 6 March 2017

On Thursday 23rd February I had the opportunity to sample Cardamom Black's Pan Asian takeout and I couldn't miss out on it! I decided to take the opportunity after taking part in a Barrecore class as I has nothing in for dinner and was in so much pain I couldn't wait to get into a hot bath to soak away my aching muscles. So the idea of having hot food delivered to me afterwards definitely appealed to me and I adore indian takeaway, but I also love Thai food too!

Cardamom Black is situated in the Harrogate Empire Theatre building and offers free delivery on orders over £20 and at £1 per mile after you really can't go wrong if you don't fancy cooking dinner yourself! All you need do is take a browse at their online menu, take your choice and ring your order though to them and await your delivery from a rather handsome chap smartly dressed in a suit and tie! Never before have I had food delivered to me by someone looking like definitely made it more of the event that's for sure and he made me feel a bit underdressed, answering the door in my favourite Primark pyjamas! (But then, isn't that the luxury of takeout?? Being able to slob out in your pjs whilst eating some delicious food!?) The fact you can pay by card whilst ringing through your order means no scrabbling around under the sofa for loose change! #Winning

In no particular order I went for Peshwari naan (my favourite despite the fact I dislike coconut! Oddly on this naan it just seems to work!), Shimla potatoes with roasted Ajwain, lime and coriander rice, a trio of mixed samosas and Phera Pheri (w/o mushrooms!) I have to admit that when this arrived it looked like enough to feed a small army so I can say with confidence that Cardamom Black are not shy with their portion sizes! Good to know if you need to feed a family on a budget.

Everything was presented in a big cardboard box with each meal choice in separate plastic boxes and the naan in a keep warm bag. I also got some side salad and some minty sauce which I found went well with the rice. I'm not sure if these came with anything I ordered or were just added extras but they were very well received either way!

I can not fault Cardamom Black on anything. Everything was absolutely delicious, non greasy, full of flavour, delivered quickly, reasonably priced, local and value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again or indeed eat in their restaurant now that I have had the opportunity to taste them for myself. I highly recommend their wonderfully, fully flavoured Pan Asian Cuisine if you are looking for something different from your usual takeout choices.
