“Best Indian in West Lothian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Have eaten in this Indian for many years now and just keep going back. Whilst not the lowest cost option for Indian food, it is excellent and worth the little extra compared to other in the surrounding areas.

The restaurant is very cosy with great atmosphere, although if you can get a booth when reserving it add just a little more privacy to your meal. The staff are fantastic, very attentive to your needs and if you're new to Indian cuisine or perhaps just the menu at the Karma, they're always on hand to find a dish to your liking or request the chef to alter a dish to your taste.

There is a good selection of dishes on their menu, including some regional specials such as the South Indian Garlic Chilli Chicken and Hot and Spicy Moonga which are both superb, but I do like their Bhuna and Madras and this is my typical order either sitting in or take away. As a starter I can highly recommend the Haggis Pakora as something different.

The only slight gripe I have with the Karma is the additional pricing for their King Prawn dishes, where they add a supplement of £6.00 which pushes the cost of any King Prawn curry to over £15 without any rice or bread.

Whether eating in or take away the Karma is fantastic, the staff friendly and knowledgeable and a good meal is always on offer here.

Somewhere I will continue to eat time and time again.

“First visit but not last”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

We were lucky enough to get a table for two on one of the busiest nights of the year. Thank goodness two cancelled their Christmas party!!
Food is brilliant and service was spot on. Staff went out of their way to please.
Not to be missed if you like Indian food.

“Excellent Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Went for a family meal to this restaurant and was very impressed. Staff were friendly and always available when required. The food was probably the best Indian food I have ever tasted and although not cheap, not too expensive either
