Great food, friendly service, quirky decor. Situated in old Poole. Easy access to parking. We popped in on the off chance of getting a table early one evening when we could not get a table in a bear by restaurant and enjoyed it so much we have been back several times

The perfect place to catch up with a friend. The staff were cheerful and welcoming, and the whole atmosphere is relaxed. The food is gorgeous, difficult to know what to choose from a very comprehensive menu. I can thoroughly recommend the lamb casserole, delicious and just right for a cold January evening.

Myself and my husband spent a very pleasant evening at the Karma. The staff were very friendly and polite. The food was cooked excellently and well presented with very substantial portions. Would love to revisit if ever in the area.

We visited Karma last night for an early New Years Eve dinner. The food was fantastic, we had the spanakopita, chicken wings, kleftiko and the 22 High St Special. WOW! Absolutely delicious, freshly cooked food. Really nice staff, and lovely ambience. We definitely recommend.

Called in early evening over the Christmas period just on the spur of the moment and had an excellent meal, the starters, mains and puddings were all very tasty and the service spot on, value for money we thought was also good, as were the surroundings. Would visit again without doubt.

Recently attended as a group of 10 for our Christmas get together. Accommodated us easily and the attention to our needs and service was excellent. The food was authentic and very delicious, arrived swiftly from order given the size of our table. Will be visiting again soon. Well done.

We have eaten in this restaurant many times and never been disappointed with the food it's cooked fresh to order and everything is made from scratch on site. The staff and proprietor make you very welcome and are very friendly nothing is to much trouble. Would strongly recommend this restaurant.

From the moment you step inside you are made to feel welcome. The restaurant is tasteful, authentic and inviting. The staff couldn't be any better they've got it spot on. They are friendly and yet efficient. As for the food it's delicious. Freshly cooked and packed full of flavour. It doesn't get any better than this.
