“Cosy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

I love this chilled out place with its cosy interior and dimmed lights - very chilled out if you come earlier for a drink at the bar and perfect for a party night out with friends swinging to the Dj! Cool crowd!

“Delicious Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

This was the 2nd time I had been to the restaurant and wasn't impressed the first time. This time it seemed like a completely different restaurant. The food was delicious, wine was tasty, service was good and the atmosphere in the restaurant was very good.
The dark lighting does take a few minutes to get used to but I don't see it as a negative point.
Lovely evening.

The price is reative for Dubai!

“Fantastic ambience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

All round a great place to go. The food is outstanding, I could have over eaten very easily. The service, very good too. The decor is rich yet sophisticated with a calming atmosphere. I'll certainly return to Karma Kafe.

“Great Food, Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

We went to Karma Kafe at dinner time (around 8:00 PM) during Ramadan. We were seated immediately. Staff were very accommodating and knowledgeable about their menu. Food was served fast.. and wow, it tasted great! May seem like an exaggeration, but was thinking the whole time - "BEST FOOD EVER!!!" We tried their teriyaki, gyoza, calamari, fried rice, noodles.. Great, great, great Asian food! Alcohol also served after 8:00 PM. Quite expensive though, but worth it. Ambience was a bit too dark for dinner, but it was okay. Plus, good view of the Dubai Fountains from here.
