excellent night out

went as a group of 4, all of us enjoyed our meal. The Tibetan momos were excellent as an appy. We all ordered a different noodle dish and all were very good. It was quite busy on a Friday night, so I would recommend reservations so you are not disappointed.

Although service was a little slow, our meals were well worth the wait. The Mo Mo's were a tasty starter. One of my friends had Pad Thai with Tofu and I had a Karma's Curry. All meals were reported as being delicious. We sat out on the street , under an umbrella and enjoyed the summer sun and ambience of... More

We shared the lime noodles and the share platter. Really delicious. Excellent service. Authentic flavours. Yum, yum, yum. Will be back soon. Oh, and a lovely atmosphere too.

Stopped in here on a Saturday afternoon, had the sampler plate (more than enough for two) and also a bowl of Pho Bo soup. The sampler plate consists of shrimp, chicken, and assorted deep fried vegetable rolls. It is served with three different sauces: two sweet and one Thai-flavoured with a bit of heat. The soup was loaded with goodies:... More

After a couple of disastrous restaurant experiences of late, it was a great pleasure to once again enjoy the consistent quality and fresh flavours of Karma's, not to mention the reasonable prices. For apps we had salad rolls bursting with herbs, mango, shredded carrots and more, and the noodle patties, a perfect comfort food. For mains, we share a green... More

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

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!

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
