To our Valued Customers and Friends,

We are pleased to announce that Cardamom Restaurant is now re-open for dine-in and bar service. After two years of quiet, we are delighted to have your joyous energy in our space once again as you gather with friends and family. Thank you for your support and patience these past two years. Thank you for the years to come.

We are OPEN Wednesday – Sunday 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm. Open late until 10:30 pm on Friday and Saturday.

A special thank you to the amazing humans who worked with us before, during and now after our dine-in closure—servers, chefs and dishwashers—who are now cheerfully training the new folks.

A few notes:

Carry-out orders will be taken by phone and pick up is now INSIDE the restaurant. Please call 734-662-2877 during our open hours, or walk-in. Please note that carry-out is limited at this time as chefs and service staff adjust to the new demands of dine-in service.

Seating is available on a first-come first serve basis. We do not take reservations. If you’ve never been to our dining room before, please be aware that it is best for parties sized 1-6 people. We do offer a text-when-your-table-is-ready service so you can enjoy the outdoors or the bookstore should you need to wait for a table. You are also welcome to wait in our full bar area and enjoy a cocktail!

Our outdoor patio is closed at this time. We will look to a full clean and re-open when the spring weather is more stable.

We are so excited to see you in our dining room soon! You’ll see some of your favorite staff members and many who are new—please grant them your patience. They are doing a fantastic job, but, nevertheless, learning as they go.

With Appreciation,
All of us at Cardamom Restaurant



To Our Valued Customers and Friends,

We reach out to you today with deep gratitude and humility. Your ongoing support, patience and loyalty have enabled us to weather the storm of the past two years. We are so grateful for you, our customers, who have buoyed our business while many restaurants closed their doors for good. We could not have done it without you or our loyal staff members, who have tirelessly and cheerfully taken all the changes in stride.

This week will be our last week of the current carry-out only / online ordering / patio pick-up model.

Beginning on Sunday, March 6th at 9:00 pm, the online ordering system will shut down and our restaurant will close temporarily as we onboard, train, clean and reset our operations to accommodate dine-in and bar service.

We are so excited to see you in our dining room soon! Our re-open date is not yet firm, but we will keep you posted. 

Please be aware that when we do re-open, carry-out capacity will be quite limited as chefs and service staff adjust to the new demands of dine-in service. Our vision has always been to create a great dine-in restaurant experience where community comes together and families and friends enjoy each other’s company while sharing freshly prepared, delicious food.

These years without your energy have been lonely, and we look forward to serving you in-person. We hope that you will continue to grace us with your patience and understanding as we navigate this next phase.

With deep gratitude,

Binod Dhakal & Becky Winkler-Dhakal
