Great, colourful presentation of fresh Thai food and much quicker service than what I've experienced here before. The server was attentive but not intrusive, seemed right in tune with us and perfect pace....perhaps the slow stormy night with few customers allowed for this. While the Tum Yam soup was not what I expected and does not compare to a typical... More

My husband and I, with another couple, went to Karmas for an early dinner before a concert on Monday. Server was attentive and food and drinks came quickly, however the spring rolls were not homemade and neither was the sweet chili sauce served with them. The 2 orders of tofu Phad Thai, 1 order of chicken Phad Thai and Bami... More

This was our first visit to Karma's Cafe. Lived up to the great reviews. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Favourites included Pad Thai, Noodles with lime leaves and Butter Chicken. Gluten free options available. The server we had was excellent. Well worth a visit and I would highly recommend it.

I love this restaurant. The food is always fresh and delicious! The noodles with lime leaves are my favourite dish of all time, anywhere. The flavours are so unique.

This is 1 of my favourite restaurants for Thai, and similar foods. It's not a big restaurant so you really need reservations I think. And the food is tasty and fresh, so your meal doesn't come in less than 1/2 hour (based on 3 visits ordering Pad Thai) however it's really worth the wait. Very friendly staff.

We always bring friends from out of town here. The food is amazing and although the menu is small, it is still hard to decide what to order. The service is warm and professional. Karma is a genial host. The atmosphere is great, and the west side of the space is particularly lovely and romantic. Butter chicken is one of... More
