The Lentil Shepard Pie is one of my favourite meals you will find in Byron bay. It's home cooked style with brown lentils, mashed potato and melted cheese, its a vegetarian version of a shepard pie and it's totally delicious. The restaurant itself is an oasis in holiday time when you can't get into any other eatery.

I love this place & always eat here when in Byron! Food is always fresh & delicious. Service always comes with a smile & chat. Various choices available to make up a delicious meal- charged by plate size & number of foods selected e.g. Large plate with rice & 3 choices = $x If the potato bake is on offer-... More

The Cardamon Pod is a Hare Krishna restaurant in Byron Bay. It's in a great location, the food is excellent but at the same time slightly pricey for this sort of place. A group of six of us ate there today with a bill of about $100 - majority having plates of rice with two curries or salads with a... More

Stopped here for lunch as we were starving - the food is veggie/vegan and delicious - you can select whatever you like and price is determined by plate size. They have a good selection of teas too! Quite a large selection of daal, curry, salads and other middle eastern dishes :)

I wanted to like this place - usually Hari Krishna cafes are very high quality - but it was a little disappointing. My dahl was tasty but the portion was quite small, the pakoras were somewhat soggy and the vegetables bland and wet. Also nothing was very hot (temperature). I was eating early evening so I thought everything should have... More

We always eat here when we visit Byron Bay. It is a Hari Krishna vegan cafe. The food is so tasty, the price is good. It is suitable for take away - for those nights when you just want to 'veg' in your room.

We just came for some dessert, honestly hands down the most amazing pumpkin cheesecake I have ever had! I will be back as I will never get that taste out of my head. Yum yumyum!

After paying $25 for two large takeaways, we were so incredibly disappointed with the lack of food that existed in our takeaway containers. When you buy a takeaway you expect it to be full of food ensuring you "get what you paid for" but this wasn't the case at Cardamon Pod. One container got the tinniest spoon of rice with... More
