This is called a "Mediteranean" restaurant. It is more Turkish I think with some dishes that would be considered Greek. Food was nice. Not very many people dining that night so waiters were seemingly watching the diners and plates were whipped away as soon as eaten. Good if you are in a hurry, but maybe with the prices charged you... More

The first time we ate here we thought we were going to eat Mediterranean-style food but in fact the menu is based on Turkish/Greek specialities. The place was empty at 7pm when we arrived and still empty at 830pm when we left (apart from one other table of diners) so atmosphere not great. However, the plate of meze as a... More

Our table of six shared 3 Meze platters, plenty served with delicious bread. All the main courses were good. We also shared some baklava pastries to go with coffees and unusual rose tea. Service was very good.

from the description of the menu it sounded like authentic greek food. I liked the rice and salad I had but my marinated chicken tasted as if it was bought in.Also I think £5.50 is a bit steep for a glass of house wine

My boyfriend and I love this place. I like to eat healthy so this place is perfect for us as there are lots of options for all tastes. It really feels like your in south-eastern Europe when you're in Karma. It is a little pricey, but we go there for treats. I highly recommend!

We shared the Meze as a main course. Every dish was excellent. Hard to imagine it could be improved. Next time we'll have to try choosing from the rest of the interesting dishes on the menu. Service very good. A very attractive interior. Reasonable prices.

After 8 hours travelling and being caught up in traffic jams all the way we needed to unwind with a few drinks and a good meal. Karma had a lovely relaxing atmosphere and friendly service. The food was really tasty and good value. I would definitely visit again and recommend to friends.
