Visited here as it is close to family that we were staying with and the glowing reviews on here made us feel compelled to try it. My partner and I both love Indian food so were looking forward to our visit. We were unaware that a booking would likely be required and in fairness to the restaurant the front of... More

We regularly get take outs and sit in at this Restaurant and it never disappoints . Great people great food. The lovely lady behind the bar when I go in and order food always knows my name. They always help you with the menus . It's not the cheapest food but that's because it's the best !!

The takeaway food we had last night from Karma was disgusting! I ordered a vegetarian main meal which was the consistency of baby food. The pakora starters we ordered tasted of nothing accept deep fried batter. The rice dishes where not seasoned and dry. A complete waste of money seeing as the prices are steep for a takeaway.

Had a tasty and satisfying Indian meal here. Very clean, comfortable and without annoying background music. There is the usual Indian restaurant plus some fusion and inspiring novelties. My chicken dish had aniseed liqueur flamed over it, very interesting mix of flavours. Waiter was exceedingly helpful, informative, efficient and respectful. The rather austere exterior of the restaurant, looks a little... More

We were recommended the Karma by a friend so decided to try it. We weren't disappointed. The food is very good, much better than other Indian restaurants in West Lothian or the Falkirk area in our opinion and the staff were friendly and helpful but not overbearing . Don't be put off by the exterior , which looks like it... More

Had a great meal in this stylish restaurant on Easter Monday. Premises were gorgeous, staff were friendly and attentive, food was well presented and very tasty. This was my first trip to this restaurant, but it certainly on't be my last.

Food is always of a high standard at Karma, Whitburn - and it has the added bonus of extremely friendly and attentive staff. Best in West Lothian!

The Karma is a hidden gem of a restaurant. When it is not open the shutter are down and it looks as if it has stopped trading. Rest assured it is still alive and busy. If visiting at the weekend you should phone and book a table. When we were there on a Saturday evening all the tables were occupied.... More
