This is one of my favourite restaurants in Peterborough. Be sure to make a reservation on the weekends because it is not very big and it fills up quickly. The spring rolls are excellent. The pad thai is amazing - I especially enjoy it with chicken. I have had the pad thai about 6 times, always intending to choose something... More

I've eaten here several times over the past year for both lunch and dinner, and I've always enjoyed the food. Spring rolls, the pad thai, and the mixed platter are all fresh, tasty and flavourful. The patio is pleasant in nice weather. It's not inexpensive but I don't quibble at the price because I enjoy the food. The service, however,... More

Our three trips to Karma's have regularly been great. Fresh ingridients, just the right amount of spices and the ability to accomodate vegans, vegetarians et al. The best Himalayan/Thai food in this area. My favorites are the Pad Thai and Noodles with lime leaves. Cold spring rolls are excellent. Will be coming back for sure.

We have been coming here since it first opened before it had its makeover. Food is always made fresh and tasty. Favourite is the Noodles with Lime Leaves, just the right amount of spice. Favourite apps are the Momo's, the salad rolls and spring rolls. Bar service can be a little slow and they don't have dessert but we are... More

I was really looking forward to my meal at Karma's. I haven't been in maybe 2 years. I ordered the butter chicken - all I could taste was salt. No flavour. So unbelievably disappointing. The salad had no flavour either. My partner's dish didn't have the ingredients it was supposed the have. The service staff were overworked for the busy... More

I never knew this restaurant was on Hunter, a friend said they had awesome Thai food. My experience was great, we were seated right away the server we had was awesome. The atmosphere is warm and cozy, i guess you could say romantic if you were there with you significant other. I was there with a friend.... I would just... More

I saw the episode of Restaurant makeover years ago and had always planned on going to Karma's. Finally went on Valentines day. The food was so good. Price and portion excellent. Service and atmosphere was good too, I guess. I was enjoying my dinner too much to pay attention to much else. I recently moved to the Peterborough area, and... More

This is a wonderful little place tucked away in a street with lots of restaurants to choose from. There is local art on the walls to enjoy (and we actually bought one of the pieces). The owner is welcoming and friendly. Come early because they fill up quickly. They have wonderful tables by the window so make sure that you... More

Karma is a very nice restaurant, although the waiter we had was not good at all. He hardly spoke and never came to see if we wanted separate cheques or even to see how our food was. Although the food is really good and is presented very nicely and good portion sizes! the only downfall is there is very little... More

I was dropping off my daughter at Trent and decided to try some local fare. We stumbled across Karma's Cafe and we were glad we did. The food was fantastic, The service and atmosphere were fun and non pretentious. The food is a mix between Thai and Indian but leaning more to the Thai side. I give kudos to Karma... More
