Aubergine pakora was the highlight of a very underwhelming dining experience. Dated decor coupled with the shockingly slow service made it very difficult to justify the prices.

Since we have been in the area we have tried a few resturants and takeaways but nothing in west lothian comes close to Karma. The food is sublime and we havent had a bad meal yet. Sauces are always beautiful and everything cooked to perfection. Always great reception when you enter or get pick up. I can understand why they... More

Has lived off Tam Cowans review for too long now. Still a decent curry but not what was once described in Daily Record as" the best curry in Scotland". When its good its very good, but can serve up the occasional bland meal, expensive all the same. Cant fault service.

First visit for a wee while since I stop commuting between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Well worth the detour with my son after the rugby at Murrayfield and the food did not disappoint. Massive congratulations to Jaggy and the team for yet another Best in Scotland award. Need to buy a bigger display cabinet!!!

Have been coming here for years, from back when it was Cafe Shebab. Now I've moved away and only visit Karma on special occasions, but it's ALWAYS worth it. The service and food is always exceptional. Karma is the jewel in West Lothian's crown. Although i now live close to Glasgow with a plethora of Indian restaurants nearby to choose... More

Went to this restaurant in a group of 20 people for a 30th birthday. The food was lovely but we couldn't possibly have had worse service. Firstly we paid a £200 deposit and then we're only given £190 off our bill therefore the restaurant stole £10. The staff were incredibly rude, acting as if they just didn't care and couldn't...

Took Friends from Aberdeen and was praying it would be as good as we had experienced over the years as it was their first time. I had nothing to be concerned about as the food was top notch yet again. They stated it was as good as they've ever had elsewhere. Quality was five star, as was the brilliant service... More

Karma is an amazing restaurant. The monk fish is to die for, however the full menu is amazing. Gradually working my way through from start to finish. If you are unsure what to order the amazing staff will help going through your options with there amazing choices. Karma is a must

After spending the day in Edinburgh (currently on holiday from England) we decided to try Karma on the way back to our hotel as it was on route and had good reviews. Unfortunately, the restaurant did not live up the rating given here. The decor is dated and unusual - it feels like you're in a community hall recently decorated,... More
