Great atmosphere and very friendly with a crowded, eastern-med multi- cultural feel that was emphasised by the decor. Plastic sheeting on the tables warns you that this is not the most subtle and sophisticated of experiences. The meze was huge with many good, similar vegetarian dishes. I would have preferred pita bread to the spicy brown bread provided which conflicted... More

Whilst saying in Poole on a long weekend we stumbled upon the Karma. The restaurant was quite quiet so we had the full attention of the staff, who were very friendly. Ordered chicken kebab and mixed kebab , came with rice. Very tasty and just the right amount. Deserts, bottle of wine and the tea's totalled about £65 for the... More

We came after long journey, being stuck in traffic for four and half an hours. It was 8:30 pm and everywhere was fully booked. We just popped in and asked for table for eight people. To our surprise in instant two tables were put together. We were kindly welcomed by staff which was friendly, kind and quick. In no time... More

I think this place is fairly new but the interior and staff felt like it had always been there. Friendly waiters with a relaxed style -not overbearing. Good food, although some of the cold starters could have done with a squeeze of lemon. Main courses were substantial - I'm a big fan of lamb and the cutlets were numerous and... More

This restaurant was full to the brim on the night I stumbled across it and with good reason. The food is a good mixture of Greek/Turkish classics served very quickly from a kitchen that clearly has its act together. Add to that a decor which creates a feeling of the eastern Mediterranean and staff members who are friendly and accommodating... More

Nothing to add. Shame I was too full to enjoy a dessert but hey ho - keep my waistline down! Will return but ask for a smaller portion. Don't like to waste good food

Thank Alph
