We went to bike night and decided to have a bite to eat, which can be a gamble at bike night on the Quay! We walked in and got a table, to be fair it was fairly early, but by the time we left, it was nearly full. The staff were friendly and attentive and the food was great and... More

I think this is the third or fourth time we have been to Karma and it is usually for a family get together. Our booking was for 7pm on a Wednesday evening and we were running a little later gathering the clan in a nearby bar. So I went into the restaurant and they were extremely accommodating to put our...

Really lovely restaurant, we had a lovely meal here last sunday, we are a party of 5 including my 19 month old son, the waitress was very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble, we all choose different lamb dishes, lovely flavours and the portions were plentifull. We will definitely return.

I vaguely remember the first time coming to this place (this was probably back in early 2015) - a friend of mine and I were walking down Poole high street towards the Quay and fancied dinner somewhere new. We happened to skim read the menu and were drawn in by a Mezze. This was the key word that had piqued... More

Another visit to Poole quay resulted in visiting our favourite Poole Bistro. There is always an exciting buzz in the place and the food never fails. We had the veggie Aubergine bake in rich tomato sauce. Wonderful !

Popped in here on the offchance we would get a table . Great staff lovely ambience. As locals I'm surprised we haven't been before. Had mixed grill really nice , husband had fish . Have been again since then , only negative is lack of air conditioning on hot evenings. There are fans though.

Lovely food and really friendly staff. We had a wonderful table by the large open windows and were made to feel very welcome. We thoroughly enjoyed our night at Karma.

We were only in Poole for one night and reviews looked good. We walked past on Tuesday night and it was packed; always a good sign. We had not booked but were seated promptly and politely. The oiled tablecloths were hard to move your plate on. We both ordered a drink. Great and prompt. We both had moussaka, not great.... More

Quite busy for a dank Tuesday night and booked in for 7.30 as they don't take food orders after 9. Started with the sharing Meze which had a good variety of hot and cold dishes and was very tasty. Had a mixed grill and the quality of the lamb and chicken was really good along with the lamb chop and... More
