Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Such a disappointment, visited here a few years ago and absolutely loved it. Now's it's dirty, run down and the food is disgusting. Do not waste your time or money here. We arrived before 2pm on a Saturday for some dried up canteen food and...a warm green smoothie. 'All day' I don't think do!More

You should not expect the same quality of service and food as the one in Southport. On hot sunny day on the weekend, there is no açai bowel available..that was pretty disappointing. and our second choice was also out of ingredients….I also did not choose...the right table today because the other customers who were sitting next to us were having a nice relaxing time but the gentleman had his feet up in the couch. It is understandable that they deserve their good time but I wish they had also some courtesy for others. I did not want to his dirty feet when I was eating. Unfortunately, I cannot recommend this place. No vibe.More

Should have been much better - the food was dry and almost completely cold. I’m sure health standards could not have been met. Not surprised there were very few people there for such a popular spot

Cardamom Pod, Broadbeach was always a must visit for our Family when on holidays. After our visit tonight that will not longer be the case. All you can eat for $19 but all there is are empty or near empty trays of very cheap, uninteresting...food. Gone are the fresh, colourful, tasty dishes. Gone are the fellow happy customers. On asking about when will fresh dishes will be coming out I was told not until what’s here is gone. Well we’re gone!!More

I went to cardompod today, there were few dishes all looked old + dried out. Customer service lady with curly hair very rude asked whether i wanted take away, i said i was thinking and she said what do i want again. I said when...someone says they are thinking wait. I was contemplating whether to buy any food as it looked terrible with few choices. As i walked out the door she yelled saying i cant belive it.... she should be firedMore

Fantastic food but terrible service. Ordered 2 acai bowls & 2 drinks in the same order. My bowl & drink came out in about 25minutes.. they somehow totally missed my partners bowl & smoothie on the order.. we told them about 10minutes after I received...mine. Still seen quite a few people get there meals that were served after us arrive.. after telling the not so friendly staff again they said it was being made now but clearly it wasn't as he waited about 35minutes after mine came out to get his. Such a let down after being so excited to finally experience the food I follow on instagram with such crappy service. Yes the food looked picture perfect but that isn't enough to make us go there again. Not even a sorry from the staff.. Crappy customer service!More

So impressed by our breakfast here. The food was incredible, friendly service, lovely vibe and overall exactly what you want for a Sunday brekky. All 3 of us loved our meals - the avo benny, dosa crepes and acai bowl. Have already made plans to...come for lunch with a friend this week. Definitely recommend.More

During the week they do a buffet for lunch. You choose which of the hot foods and salads you want and they plate it for you. I was hoping to order a meal off the menu which look like works of art but apparently that's...only for weekends. Nevertheless, my food was very tasty. Eggplant mornay (vegan), pasta bake, thai curry and a selection of salads. Also had a very nice lime mocktail. I really enjoyed it and would visit again as it's so easy to find once you alight from the tram at Broadbeach North.More

Was looking for a gluten-free vegan dessert and found a delicious choc slice here - topped off with a yummy kombucha. Great for those looking for a healthy treat.

I don't believe they do. However you may be able to buy 'Cooking with Kumar' there, which is along the same foods. Excellent cookbook too!
