Of all the eateries in Byron, I always come back to Cardamon Pod. Without question the tastiest ( if not healthiest) food you'll experience. Unmissable

I had a craving for vegetarian and chose this place for a quick lunch. Chose the lentil shepherds pie and lasagna. Very small servings, only half a plate. As I’m not a big eater this was perfect. Then I noticed the price I paid on...my phone. $18.90. When I mentioned it to the waitress, she said it’s for all you can eat and come back for more. I was not interested in the deal, only wanted to pay for my small portion. Too bad, that’s our rules. Why didn’t the person that served me, after she say how small my portion was OR the girl at the register mention the $18.90 deal. THE MOST EXPENSIVE SMALL PORTION MEAL on the Gold Coast.More

This is a small cafe tucked away at the back of a small shopping precinct. Its vegetarian Asian and everything we had was tasty. In particular the samosa which is larger than normal and frankly is a meal in itself-choice of spinach and feta or...potato. Also the vegetarian Kofta balls with rice. Save a bit of room for the indulgent pumpkin cheesecake which was delicious. And all reasonably priced.More

We had our 'small' plate filled with three delicious curried vegetable dishes, rice and dal. We could also buy pakora/samosa to be eaten with yummy mango chutney, all of these made with not-too-daunting amount of spice, and without onion, garlic and mushroom (hence 'sattvic'). For...drinks, there were mango lassi and lemon-ginger drink which were quite refreshing and tasteful too. All served in nice plates and cutlery with a friendly lady who had a smile and who spoke with genuine courtesy. My daughter, wife and I thanked ourselves (and Sri Krishna) for choosing this place.More

A pleasant place for lunch. At the end of a short walkway, seating area is on the small side, but the place was full of happy atmosphere ~*~ Delicious vegan & vegetarian options, a decent variety of choice of savoury and sweet. Reasonable serving sizes...that fill you up, and quite well priced for some great quality foodMore

We spent $31 dollars for takeaway and it fed 2 of us over 2 days. The dishes were delicious, fresh and varied all being vegetarian.

Great place for our lunch whilst wandering around Byron Bay. Loads of eating places here, but none grabbed our attention till we saw this! Staff friendly and helpful and the food was filling and very tasty. Low cost too which was even better. Highly recommend...this place.More

This would have to be the freshest, most delicious and most affordable food in Byron. Great curries, samosas, salads. The cakes looked beautiful too. Shall try next time.
