Perfection

This was the second time we have been there. First time we have been recommended by good friends to visit that place. And we fell in love with their food. Meat is cooked to the perfection, tender, juicy! Atmosphere and staff are amazing. We have felt welcome and definitely coming back!

Great staff great atmosphere. We have the mezze main which was good and filling but in hind site wish we had the mezze starter and then had mains. Everything was delivered at the same time and everything g was lovely and fresh but didn't feel like a meal. When I have had mezzes before the main came latter. But still... More

Had a Friday night dinner for two. The restaurant had a great atmosphere and the staff were friendly. We had the sharing meze platter. It arrived rapidly and was delicious. Probably would have enjoyed it more if we had known what we were eating... With such a wide variety of dishes a bit of explanation would have been well received.... More

I had the Kleftiko (again) was amazing, you need to book the Kleftiko early as they do sell out fast. On my next visit I will be getting the... More

Really enjoyed the atmosphere, cosy and friendly.It was a Saturday night so very busy, but it didn't feel crowded or stressful. It's also not the typical chain restaurant, which I really appreciate these days. The owner is a lovely Greek guy who was very nice to talk to. As for the food, which I guess is the important thing in... More

We chose this restaurant as it is listed in the top 10 in Poole. The restaurant is easy to find, on the main high street, and parking is available in the nearby multi-storey. The decor is traditional, and the welcome is very warm. There was a great deal of choice on the menu, for both meat eaters and vegetarians. We... More

We visited Karma as a party of six on a Friday evening having pre booked the table. The restaurant is small enough to be cozy but not so small that you feel claustrophobic. Karma seems to attract a variety of people, young and old,couples and families. We found the place very child friendly. Decoration has a Mediterranean theme and is... More

Visited this gorgeous restaurant along with my Mother, Aunty and Brother. The food was absolutely brilliant, much better than any similar restaurants I've visited in my home town of London. The lamb humous was particularly tasty. We ordered chicken and lamb chops, both were cooked perfectly leaving them tender and succulent. The staff were very nice and attentive, ensuring we... More

Myself and my partner have been coming to this restaurant for many years now and have always had excellent service and excellent food. the mezze sharing platter is always a treat; and i always end up having the special mixed grill; the meat is cooked perfectly. We had my brother and his family here for the weekend with my niece... More

We went here on a whim, liking the look of the restaurant and the buzz that was going on inside. We were warmly greeted and quickly found lots of interest on the 'Mediterranean' menu - mostly Greek food (although I think people that run it are Turkish). We had some excellent starters - I can recommend the spicy sausage, and... More
