This is one of my favourite places to eat in Poole. We sometimes just pop in straight after work to see if we can get an early table for a delicious Mediterranean culinary treat . The restaurant itself is cosy and atmospheric, don't be put off by the plastic table coverings. The portions are quite large, but this does not... More

What a lovely little gem just off poole quay. The restaurant is so welcoming with friendly and accommodating staff. They are all so polite, helpful and accommodating. They food is simply amazing. The time and effort it takes to perfect their dishes really pays off. I would highly recommend the lamb kleftico! Can't wait for my next visit.

As the title suggest better than expected, so often this type of eatery does not live up to expectations, in that whatever you had on holiday is never the same with british grown ingredients, they just never taste the same. Karma produced food and ambience that hit the mark. next time we are in poole for a family visit would... More

Visited Karma with a group of my collegues for a post Christmas party. Very nice ambient but the food is on the top. Had different meze to start and the lamb as mail. The lamb cutlets were amazing especially if you have some tzatziki for the chips. Will be back soon

Karma were advertising a set menu for New Years Eve, as well as their normal menu. The set menu sounded very nice and a reasonable price, however we opted for a Mezze for two, and added a couple more dishes for good measure. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious, and the staff were excellent. Karma will definitely be... More
