I've been here for the second time in September 2014. It was a favourable confirmation of the good feeling I had the first time many years ago. People are careful and discrete. Food is I think the best Indian food you can find in Torino

The restaurant is located in a basement and upon entering, we almost thought we had taken the wrong entrance. It was however... More

A friend of us from India recommended this place and we found it really good. Not only the food, which is excellent, but also the atmosphere. Authentic and not too expensive.

Was in Turin for an extended business stay and by the end of a week was really tired of pasta and pizza. Discovered Karmacola on Trip Advisor and visited the place - twice. Very satisfying for me as an Indian Although the food is more tuned towards the palette of the resident Italians, it is nevertheless a good alternative. The... More

Excellent!! Best Indian food one can find in Italy! - very close to the taste that you could actually get in India...... wouldn't reccomend any other Indian restaurant in Torino other than Karmakola.

Went the this restaurant with a dream box present form close friends. They accepted the coupon, even if we were beyond the expire date: a good start. The restaurant has an unusual entrance so you feel a little abandoned until you descend and find that the action is all at the basement floor level. The food is honest and makes... More
