“Suprised!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014 via mobile

I have lived less than half a mile from this restaurant for 5 years without visiting it until tonight and following my visit I feel I have been missing a great eatery! I ordered the Goan chicken speciality and it was deliciously authentic. I am not a huge fan of Indian food but this was great,unusual food cooked with passion and flare. The menu choice was very extensive with contemporary,surprising options. It was very well priced and the service was excellent.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

I recently had a meal at Qarma and the evening was really enjoyable the staff were friendly and the food was excellent. The atmosphere was really good, we didn't feel rushed. We booked a table in advance as it was a Saturday and we didn't want to be disappointed.

“Thank you TripAdvisor Reviewers.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

We were looking for somewhere to eat after a visit to Alton Towers, so booked for 8pm as the traffic is always bad, well I say always! not this time, got there at 7pm but they fitted us in ok, we had drinks on the famously comfortable sofas while looking at the menu, we ordered our food then were shown to our table not too soon after that.
Our starters arrived soon after having been seated, we had to wait about 20min for our mains but as they say it's all cooked fresh so well worth the wait, fantastic food & generous portions, as we were leaving the staff gave my partner & our two teenage girls single roses & after eight mints which was a lovely touch. Lovely venue & food.

“Great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014 via mobile

This is my 3rd review and last night was excellent. From start to finish. We booked with a taste card but would book and pay normal price at weekends. Excellent attentive service from Hassan. Keep up the good work

“Brilliant Food, Friendly Helpful Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2014

We were on holiday in the area and used Trip Advisor to find an Indian restaurant, and the Qarma came highly rated. I have to admit not being native to the area we found it a little tricky to find so with a quick phone to the restaurant we found them. (we were close)
The menu is quite extensive I chose from the Chefs innovative range and with a little help from the staff the rest of our party made their choices.
The service was efficient & friendly.
The food was excellent very tasty no complaints from anyone in our party.
During the evening the Head Chef took a tour of (I think) of all the tables asking if everything was ok personally I thought this was a nice touch.
I wish this was our local Indian, as there was so much to chose from.
Would we go back ..... yes.
