6 of us went, fairly late, last night, for a meal at Karma. A good choice, it turned out, as we had booked, again fairly late in the evening. The food was well presented, and plentiful. Personally speaking, my Chicken Madras was well spiced and flavoursome. I can't speak specifically for the others, but there were no complaints. The bill... More

Quite smart, with pleasant decor. Welcoming, though service was slow at the beginning and the end. There aren't many vegetarian dishes on the menu, mainly main course versions of vegetable sides but I asked to have the Persian Biryani, which is only with meat or prawn on the menu, with just vegetables and that was fine. Starters and mains were... More

We visited on a busy Saturday night. The staff were disorganised - we were asked by 3 different waiters if we wanted to order a drink. They brought the drinks and poppodums but didn't take our food order until after we had finished the poppodums, which they seemed to do with everyone. The service was very slow, we didn't receive...

Thank you Karma, we live in Shirley and have visited several times but thought after our early meal tonight I would let everybody know what a great little Indian restaurant this is. I agree with the earlier reviewer, yes there are plenty of curry houses in Shirley but we also think that this one is by far the best. The... More

I was in the area for a trade show and found Karma on Trip adviser. Food & service was excellent. Food flavours were well thought out and varied. Very different from the usual indian restaurant. The owner is very compassionate about his food designs and it appeared that dishes were individually created so you may need to wait a while.... More

Plenty of curry houses in Shirley but I think this one is the best of the lot, both for food and friendliness of staff. Food is fairly cheap and portions are generous. Looking forward to returning

Booked a table for 7.30 Saturday night only to greeted by a grumpy old man who ask if I was certain that I had a booking. I confirm I had and was ordered to sit in the take away area that was full, perhaps on someone's lap ? Twenty minutes later we were shown to to a table. Despite repeated... More

Arrived 6:30 Saturday evening & we were first seated diners bit when we left about an hour later only one table free. One of the things I like here is the way the tables are laid out - you are never just a few inches away from other diners like some places where every square inch is covered by a... More

We as a family have been using the Karma Indian Restaurant for several years now when we visit the Midlands and this is the best Indian restaurant there is simply amazing! The food is always great, the service is brilliant and the value is great! Keep it going!

We were in the area on business and found this restaurant on trip advisor so went in hoping for good things and were not disappointed - we were early and the first diners in - but the staff were very attentive, the food was really lovely, dishes were explained and we took recommendations on complementary dishes which made the whole...
