I love this restaurant. The food is always fresh and delicious! The noodles with lime leaves are my favourite dish of all time, anywhere. The flavours are so unique.

This is 1 of my favourite restaurants for Thai, and similar foods. It's not a big restaurant so you really need reservations I think. And the food is tasty and fresh, so your meal doesn't come in less than 1/2 hour (based on 3 visits ordering Pad Thai) however it's really worth the wait. Very friendly staff.

We always bring friends from out of town here. The food is amazing and although the menu is small, it is still hard to decide what to order. The service is warm and professional. Karma is a genial host. The atmosphere is great, and the west side of the space is particularly lovely and romantic. Butter chicken is one of... More

Lunched here with some co-workers earlier this week. Nice ambience. Pleasant servers. Food was tasty and very nicely presented. Everyone was happy with there meals. Would like to return to try some of the other interesting things on the menu.

I just can;t get to all the restaurants that I would like too. First of all I would be 500 lbs and broke. We went to Karma's on a whim, not our first choice but happy that we did. The rolls that they make are just some of the best I have ever had. I always get pad Thai when... More

On the way to Karma's I ran into a stranger who told me to try their butter chicken...I am glad I did. We shared the Tibetan momos which consisted of ground steak, white and green onions and cilantro. We had no reservations but were able to sit at a nice table outdoors in warm weather. The service by Jenna and... More

If we didn't already have a favourite Thai restaurant I would have gave this one more star. But Cosmic Charlie's does everything better, I was recommended to Karma's saying they do it better, but I'm not sure how. The service was considerably slower, the atmosphere was about the same, a little more louder because it could seat more people. The... More

A great restaurant, delightful ambience, attentive waiters. A great find! My husband had a green curry, which he loved, and I had a noodle dish. Overall excellent. The beef was a little tough.
