The Karma is a hidden gem of a restaurant. When it is not open the shutter are down and it looks as if it has stopped trading. Rest assured it is still alive and busy. If visiting at the weekend you should phone and book a table. When we were there on a Saturday evening all the tables were occupied.... More

Been here lots of times and it is so good. Service is what you should expect - very slick. Lovely quality food served by waitresses etc that looked as if they are genuinley happy to serve you. Nothing better in the area for us.

Fantastic service, waiting staff are knowledgeable on the dishes, good selection, surroundings lovely. One piece of feedback is that I would urge the owners to rectify the signage issues on the front of the building. For such a fantastic restaurant the missing letters from the building facade paint a bad impression.
