Never Disappointed

My daughter and I really appreciate the quality of the food--thai and tibetan variety. Their soup is huge, enough for two. Their appetizer platter is very good, and we have made substitutions, as I'm not fond of shrimp. Very friendly staff, dim lighting, casual decor, and quiet. They have no... read more

After waking up late and in need of food, I wandered around downtown for anything that vaguely resembled breakfast. What I found was way more than I expected! Came in as the place was opening, was served hot thai basil noodles within 10 minutes and enjoyed an empty restaurant. Brilliant staff and delicious food made this solo trip an absolute... More

I am absolutely obsessed with Karma's Cafe! I have traveled all over the world and LOVE Thai food / almost anything Asian Fusion and Karma's keeps me coming back. Their Spring Rolls are to die for and I have yet to try a main dish there that I was not satisfied with. Portion sizes are generous as well so there... More

beautiful location, but i was a bit disapointed with the food. although it was beautifully presented and very visually appealing, it lacked a lot of the bold flavors I normally associate with Thai cuisine. It left something to be desired that is for sure

Tibetan friends took us here to have dinner and to meet Karma. The food was wonderful, and we enjoyed it all. Karma is a gem. The following night after our dinner, he and his crew were in charge of serving a Tibetan meal for 300 people in Lindsay, to raise money for school projects in Tibet. What a generous heart!

I will say the food here is very good and fresh and spicy tasty! The service was also very good! I would recommend this restaurant to anyone! If you like Thai food or would like to try it for the first time this is the place! A very simple menu. The décor isn't great but nice enough, very clean and... More

The menu, the ambiance, and most certainly the staff- all top notch! Thoroughly a delightful way to spend an evening. I have eaten curry at locals around the globe & I can honestly say I would put Karma's in my top 5. It's just a shame I have to wait until spring to enjoy the patio... I would not hesitate... More

I went here for the first time last month. I found there were many different dishes on the menu that appealed to me. The food was excellent but somewhat expensive compared to other Thai restaurants in the area. Overall, service was alright and the restaurant itself was ok. I would recommend for the food itself, but be prepared for the... More
