After reading rave reviews and looking at the impressive website we were looking forward to our fiftieth birthday celebration at the Qarma. Initial reception and appearance was fine but the food itself was a bit underwhelming and it was a very expensive dinner. Not helped by the miserable lady serving us who looked like she wanted to be anywhere else.... More

Amazing food. brilliant staff and treated my wife and mother in law really nice. The food is delicious from start to finish. On entry you sit at a table near to the bar where you can enjoy a drink and natter whilst choosing from a huge selection of meals. ☆☆☆☆☆ One of the best in Staffordshire.

Excellent place to eat the best curries in Leek. Friendly and helpful Staff who will recommend a dish suitable to your taste. A relaxing atmosphere and very clean. Value for money, drinks are reasonably priced and meal also. The restaurant accepts The Tastecard on certain days/nights, giving 50% off the cost of the food. Highly recommend this restaurant for couples,... More

This is a great restaurant, good menu, and kind and efficient service. The ambience is quiet and the music not intrusive. The tables are not too close, so holding a conversation is easy.

We were a group of 12 crammed onto a table uncomfortably small...food was good but service was very slow 1hr 45mins to have served the main course - no starters which is crazy...

We went to this restaurant for a special meal and the food was fantastic and one of the best we have ever tasted. The staff were very friendly and the restaurant was beautiful with the surroundings. Well worth a visit for anyone in the vicinity who likes Indian food.

We have returned to Qarma many times now and just never fail to be impressed with the food and service. Without a doubt this is the best restaurant by far! If you haven't tried this place yet, you are missing out. D'han yabada! !!!
