“Bad Karma”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2014

Sorry to say, but i had my worst meal on a restaurant ever at this place. For the first time in my life I sent back the food. The manager came to my table and told me that I was one of a hundred that disliked his lousy gyros. Keep the gyros out of the menu if you can't make it, and it should not made out of the leg of the pig as he was proudly telling me. Well, at least they did not charge me for the disaster.

“The only place to be treaded as family with a packed house”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2014

We visited Karma after being introduced to owner Iannis the night before. we came unannounced in the peak of dinner service, and still hard working Iannis had time to greet us, and offer us a beer while we waited for a table to open up... Standing by a pillar bar, we had the chance to observe how Iannis ran around and enjoying his busy work, and leading his pleasant staff by example. Even though there were extremely busy, Iannis had time to come by us a couple of time, and we could see how he spent a lot of time at all table he visited, being everyones mad but lovely uncle...
When we were seated, we saw he has a keen eye for detail as well, as a place setting that was put on our table were getting a bit worn in the side, and he noticed and replaced right away...
All the time we were in Karma, Iannis came over and treaded us as we were old family friends.
The food was really good and the chef Solonos deserves many compliments...
Karma is a beautiful place, and could be recommended on the restaurant, it could also be recommended on the food solely, but the biggest reason to go to Karma, is to experience Iannis, everyones favourite crazy uncle...

“Nice food,great hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2014

every year we will visit Karma because of the food and the people who work in. it's a great place , clean with great local tastes and nice view! Every dish has it's own character. The service is at least excellent! The waiters always watching you, if you want something, even if they are under pressure! i recommend chicken fillet with metaxa and the wine "KANENAS". It is a great place to visit!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2014

This is great place! The staff is extremely friendly and the food was delicious. Nice views and a good vibe at this place. I spilled a large beer and they made it funny brought me another and didn't charge me for the spilled one. Will definitely go back.
