Came here with my uncle from out of town who wanted to eat Indian food in Philly. We would have gone to Cafe Spice around the corner but we were drawn to this new place. We ordered up some Pakoras with sauces a Chicken Thali, Vegetarian Thali and a Lamb Thali. For beverages we had chai and lassis. We all... More

The staff was friendly and helpful in guiding us through the menu. The food was good and our large party served at the same time. We would go back for Indian food again.

I like curry! And when on business, always search out a curry restaurant. This was great - I had the Chicken Jalfrezi, which was nice and hot with lots of fresh chopped ginger in it. Bread was good too. Service very attentive. Would recommend.

This isn't the best Indian food I've had, but the service was great and it was just what we were looking for during a trip to Philadelphia. They were great about bringing our food out quickly - we were with our toddler, so getting in and out of a restaurant quickly is important! The location was what made the place... More

I did not think I would like Indian food until I went to Karma. 2 Things that you need to know about this place. SERVICE & FOOD. 1. The service at this place is good and they care. If they make a mistake they take the time to talk about it with you. I watched as a couple near us... More

walking distance from the 2nd street stop on the septa MFL line. this is in old city which is a really cool place to be social in philly. chicken tika marsala was great and the nan was just huge! one order is enough for two people. nan is usually half that size everywhere else. highly recommended.

Awful food . I had been there for dinner last night. The tandoori items did not seem to be freshly made. The chicken was hard and tasteless. Even the tikka masala was disappointing and inauthentic . The only good thing was that the people were friendly. Will not go here again.
