“Top food overlooking Dubai Fountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2014

Brunch at Karma Kafe is pretty top notch.
The brunch follows a set 7 course menu of pan asian, with plenty of fresh beautiful seafood, served direct to your table. We went for an alcoholic brunch which included house wines, beers and a selection of cocktails.
Just missed out on 5 stars as service could have been a little better, sometimes found it hard to get waiters attention when sat outside, and cocktails were very watered down.
Grab a seat outside for views of the fountains.

“Good vantage point for music fountains”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

My hosts who took me to show the music fountains chose this place as the tables in the outdoor part of the café offer a vantage point for the fountains show. Actually later we realised that the next door Lebanese restaurant offers a better vantage view. So the place is decent and a female DJ churns music which she enjoys the most..surprisingly the place was full though we visited this place on a working day. They offer decent drinks and snacks. worth visiting

“Good view of the fountains and very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

Sitting on the terrace is a big plus point at Karma Kafe with good views of the fountains. The food is also very good and our party could not find fault with our mixed sushi and sashimi platter, an excellent Gyoza dumpling and crispy calamari. We followed with very good Mongolian beef, beef tenderloin teriyaki style, Kobe sliders and spicy noodles with king prawns. All plates emptied and definitely no complaints. Shared three desserts, excellent Yuzu pannecotas and a very good chocolate fondant.

“Great night out & good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013 via mobile

We went to Karma Kafe for dinner with family, sat outside with a view of the fountains. The food was as good as ever and the atmosphere was great. This is the second time we have been to this restaurant and we have not been disappointed. A definite recommendation.
