A pleasant suprise

I enjoyed the food as I felt that it was non greasy and very well flavoured! Very good experience all round and I enjoyed the employees company!

We were visiting the area on a Saturday night and the restaurant we had planned to go to was full, so we tried Karma. We were a bit worried as, on arrival, it was very quiet (although more people during the meal). The food turned out to be very good. My daughter had the lamb shaslik (sizzling lamb with onions,...

Visually looking restaurant is very classy. Wasn't overly impressed with the side dishes. Mango pickle & mint sauce had a funny taste & naan bread was doughy. Main curry dish was lacking a certain flavour. Generally satisfactory, wouldn't rush back.

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
