We always look for busy places as a potential sign of a good place. It was actually very quiet but we were not disappointed ! A vast varied menu including some very authentic Khmer dishes. The stir fired chicken with ginger and onion was like nothing else! Light, fresh and packing a punch! Well worth the 2012 TA award it... More

Great food, very clean and attentive staff. My gf and I had a Chicken Amok and Beef loc lak both of which were delicious; the best we had in Cambodia by far. If you are looking for an inexpensive, cool place with great food Karma won't dissapoint you. I highly recommend it!

Had a couple of beers and a tasty light lunch of stir-fried vegetables and noodles Battenbam at this pleasant river-view restaurant. Food was hot, arrived in a timely fashion, good portion size. Service was satisfactory. Street urchins will hassle you if you sit in the front rank (doesn't bother me). A nice place to sit and people-watch while you dine... More

We decided to go to the Karma Restaurant on our first day in Phnom Penh and we where a bit disappointed. I'm mean the food was good and the size of the portion was ok but it took quit a long time until the food got served and the two dishes itself (beef LokLak and pork Amok) where nothing special...

We visited Karma on our first night in Phnom Penh and was not disappointed. It is a small place on the riverfront, more of a small cafe rather than a restaurant. The food is good and tasty and the portions are fine too. When we were there it was happy hour so our total bill came to $11.25. This was... More

Would have to be one of the best restaurants in Phnom Peng centre. Service and food quality is great and the menu has a large variety to choose from. I highly recommend this restaurant.
