never had a bad meal here, but stick to the cambodian food. the western food isnt as good, but you shouldnt be here to eat hamburgers anyway (shame on me, i tried one, but no more). the fish amok is awesome.

This is a nice restaurant, the food was tasty enough and the cocktails were good. It wasn't outstanding on our trip and didn't leave a lasting impression, but there's nothing we could fault either.

This is my second review of Karma, I ate around the same time here last year, good honest food with many Asian and western options, at very reasonable prices too, my only complaint this year is they have stopped doing sausages with the breakfast and now do what they call a pattie ! 😢 please bring back those good sausages...

Nice location on the riverfront with a choice of outdoor seating or more cosy and quiet indoor tables. Large menu, fast service, and in particular I recommend the red curry.

Karma is not a pretentious place, but it's "honest food at honest prices" approach understates what it offers, for the food is very, very tasty; well presented, and the portion sizes are generous. The menu range is quite extensive and the prices represent outstanding value. The restaurant offers a relaxing environment from which you can view all of the goings-on... More
