Hadn't been to this place in years since it was called Cafe Shebab. Glad to report the food is very fresh and very tasty. Great service and staff very good.

The Karma's decoration inside is very attractive. The white tablecloths and ribbon wrapped napkins are a good presentation feature. There were five of us having dinner. Each of us had ordered something different and each was very pleased with their choice. The waiters were helpful, friendly, good humoured, well informed about the menu and efficient. The staff have obviously been... More

My sister got my husband and I a birthday voucher for Karma. We've not been there in years. The food was fantastic, highly recommend the haggis pakora - actually everything I would recommend. The staff were great and chatted through our choices so we got what we would like. Great night

Top food, slightly expensive but you pay for what you get. Highly recommend the Tandoori Ribs for starter, absolute taste sensation. The Lamb Dhahi was fantastic, great depth to the sauce and the lamb just fell off the bone and melted in the mouth. Will definitely be back but only as a treat.
