Looks nice from outside, a bit cluttered inside, slightly over average prices, but sadly not good quality food, some dishes got potential, but the meze was a big disappointment, shame because we do really love middle east food, better places in Bournemouth...improve the quality of your food and you will have a nice place....

Having walked by many times we thought it was about time we gave Karma a try. Bearing in mind we love our Mediterranean vacations so we have learned to enjoy good authentic Mediterranean food. Our welcome was brief and a little impersonal and I found that we were sat in rather close proximity to rhe other guests. Looking around this... More

Went in here on a off chance and had a lovely time. The food was terrific, especially the lamp skewers I had - possibly the best, most succulent lamb I have ever had and perfectly cooked. Price was reasonable and the derive was pleasant. The decor was OK, with a few odd touches, but I will remember it for a... More

The restaurant has a 20% off your bill special from 530pm-7pm, which along with the good tripadvisor reviews attracted us to this place. We had a mixed meal of tasty and mediocre. I had chicken skewers and my mum had the falafel main. The chicken was very tender and the accompanying side salad with rice were nicely done. The falafel... More

You could easily stumble past this little restaurant but it is absolutely lovely. Fantastic food and very generous portions, we love it here. The mixed grill is spectacular, well worth a try.

TripAdvisor led me to Karma. I fancied trying something a bit different while in Poole and this restaurant whetted my appetite. An added bonus was an offer for 20% off the food bill if dining before a certain time. Service was pleasant enough and food very tasty. I recommend the prawn casserole. My only slight gripe is that the food... More

Not being local, we only get to visit Poole a couple of times a year and always try to get to Karma. Staff are excellent, food is first class and its a really great atmosphere. Well worth a visit and surprisingly reasonable prices. The Kkeftiko is amazing

We chose this restaurant for a family birthday celebration, and needed a menu offering gluten and dairy free options. We were not disappointed, from the moment of booking, to the food arriving at the table. Mezze, aubergine ratatouille, halloumi, olives were all mouth watering options for appetisers. The Turkish white wine complimented the starters perfectly. Followed by grills, and Kleftico,... More
