This restaurant has always been fully booked when we have tried to eat here before and I can see why. Amazing food and really friendly atmosphere. We will defiantly come back

Our first visit after many recommendations. And those recommendations were spot on. The food was delicious, service spot on. You could not fault the food, beautifully cooked and piping hot. We will definitely return.

We absolutely love this restaurant, the service is good, and the food is brilliant. Prices are reasonable too! However, the seating is hard and square, so no good if you have a boney bum or a bad back. That really is the only thing you...can find fault with.More

Have been coming here for about 3 years every time I’m in Poole with colleagues, and have never had a bad meal, or anything close to it. Starters are all amazing, highly recommend the sucuck, grilled hallumi or chicken wings. Mains are brilliant, with the...special mixed grill, high street delight and kleftico being firm favourites between us. Home made chilli sauce is out of this world!More

The welcome and service was warm and inviting. The food amazing! We had starters including the chicken wings, broad beans with Greek yogurt, with delicious warm bread. The mains were outstanding and very generous, lamb cutlets which silenced the group, vegetarian moussaka was delicious! Even...a surprise birthday song and ice cream for my birthday. We will be back as it’s a special and friendly independent place as a contrast to the many chain led pubs and restaurants around Poole. Thank you!More

Decided to head out for a light dinner, somewhat late on a weeknight. Arrived at Karma 45 minutes before closing but they were so welcoming. Lovely restaurant, warm ambience. The food was delicious: homemade and warmed Turkish bread and marinated olives; creamy, homemade hummus; lamb...meatballs and homemade sausage. For dessert, we had baklava and kadayif. Outstanding! This restaurant is a gem in an otherwise very sleepy town.More

I can't remember if there were high chairs, but definitely primary age children while we were eating.
