Ate here recently with my wife, we were very warmly welcomed and shown to our table, we ate a mixed platter which was very tasty then followed by two chicken dishes that were recommended by the waiter , they were both excellent.

This place has won several key awards and since it is only a few miles up the road from me, it is a bonus. Do not judge a book by its cover as you'll be pleasantly surprised when you enter, as I was. Always greeted by a friendly member of staff and they are more than attentive when you get... More

First impressions are usually a thing by which people go by, but once I had pulled up outside with my wife on her birthday, after driving some 30 miles to get here, I was a bit disappointed, the exterior of the building looked a bit worn, the paint was flaking off and there was no sign of our elegance?

This is a busy and highly recommended Indian restaurant. The service is of a high standard and the food is as equally impressive. The menu is extensive and reasonably priced. A great time had by all!

Made another visit to Karma last week. As always....excellent service and unrivalled food. You will never be disappointed here and the service is the best we've experienced in Edinburgh or West Lothian. You'll be really pushed to find anywhere as good.

Have had both takeaway and sit in here, and never disappointed. Lovely relaxed surroundings, and the staff are all friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Very patient at discussing the different menu options and suggesting dishes to suit the diners palate. My only tiny quibble would be that the lamb in my main dish could maybe have been a wee...
