Great Butter Chicken

Love their Thai spring rolls! Butter chicken is generally very tasty, although once I got an order of it and the sauce was very dry. One bad experience out of many good ones though!

Met a client for lunch, and chose Karma's. I remembered it from an episode of Restaurant Makeover, and the reviews were good. We weren't that hungry, so ordered the "sampler plate". Simply put, a couple of each of the appetizers available. We also noticed 4-5 other tables order the same thing. It's really bad when you cannot remember which dish... More

At the end of a very warm Saturday, we decided to try this lovely restaurant, the inside dark cold and cozy, the patio inviting and still bathed in sun, you can reserve for the former but it is first come first serve for the 7 tables outside. We ordered, from the friendliest waiter: Thai spring rolls: very good 3 of... More

This place never disappoints. The food is always delicious. I love the salad rolls, and after much deliberation, nearly always get the Thai Curry and it's always hotter and more delicious than I remember!

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

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 dessert menu, but there are coffee/dessert places nearby, if you... 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!
