“Excellent Location, Excellent Ambiance but...”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

I just ate at Karma Restaurant with my cousin a couple of hours ago. I must say that it has a beautiful location, excellent ambiance and their service equipment including plates are of highest quality. But yes unfortunately there a some buts..

Our waiter's name was Ahmet, extremely friendly and he knew what he was doing. Although it was Ramadan and the restaurant was very full he took our orders in quick and professional manner. Now the cons:

- Prices are very high.
- Portions are very small (I had to pay 52 TL for 2 slices of beef with risotto). It was delicious but it was not worth the money portion wise. Also I asked for Medium Well, it came Well Done but this is a classic in Turkey :)

In my opinion either they should revise their prices or increase the portions. Also the starter plate of olives was not very good as it had almost no olive oil plus the bread plate's paper tissue underneath was probably used a couple of times before.

Will I visit again? Yes, but as I said improvement is needed but it is a very good restaurant. But it can be much much better. Thanks to Ahmet again...

“Great place to eat”
Reviewed June 10, 2014

This little diamond of a place is a great place to eat in the open, an open air night club at night and a restaurant by day, this is a great place to truly let your hair down. Food and service are excellent.

This was the best restaurant we visited whilst in Sidé! Amazing food and atmosphere when we visited, and the staff were brilliant, very proffesional!
Free pick up service is the only criticism i have, they were 45 min late to collect us and we ended up getting a taxi. Offered us free drinks as an apology so no hard feelings and the food was amazing! Would 100% recommend!

This restaurant looks good but is very mediocre at quite high prices. The service was ok but before we had finished our meal they were removing tables all around us to turn it into a bar. Other nearby restaurants such as Orfoz have a much nicer ambience and just as nice a view. We had a meze selection and a few starters to share between us, mostly ok although the honey sesame chicken was so exceedingly sweet that it was I edible. We did have a lovely bottle of Chenin Blanc with the meal. All in all, very mediocre food, I suspect their bar business is more important than the restaurant business. There are better restaurants in the area.
