After a little wait at the bar for a table we got seated upstairs which has some nice views looking over at the peace bridge and river. Me and my girlfriend ordered a variety of things which were all reasonably... More

Brilliant Chinese. Been a fan of this place since they were on down the strand road in their old building. I don't know what they put in their fried rice but it has a unique taste that I've never had any where else ever. Class place. Great staff.

After a couple of visits, still confused about the name - Palace, Karma whole thing......but doesn't matter. The decor is excellent, having lived many years in Asia myself, it's lively, fun, authentic in many ways, of course the food is aimed for this part of the world. Very good, a treat. Good fun.

E.g. 9 slices Garlic Bread... More

We visited Karma a few months back for a work do and it was an excellent night! The staff were excellent and the food was so well priced and filling. I have to say the cocktails were a real delight! I would recommend it to anyone planning a staff party or any other social gathering. A great night out

Was told that the tapas area was going to be busy, but that we could order the tapas in the restaurant area. Arrived... More
