Went to this restaurant in a group of 20 people for a 30th birthday. The food was lovely but we couldn't possibly have had worse service. Firstly we paid a £200 deposit and then we're only given £190 off our bill therefore the restaurant stole £10. The staff were incredibly rude, acting as if they just didn't care and couldn't...

Took Friends from Aberdeen and was praying it would be as good as we had experienced over the years as it was their first time. I had nothing to be concerned about as the food was top notch yet again. They stated it was as good as they've ever had elsewhere. Quality was five star, as was the brilliant service... More

Karma is an amazing restaurant. The monk fish is to die for, however the full menu is amazing. Gradually working my way through from start to finish. If you are unsure what to order the amazing staff will help going through your options with there amazing choices. Karma is a must

After spending the day in Edinburgh (currently on holiday from England) we decided to try Karma on the way back to our hotel as it was on route and had good reviews. Unfortunately, the restaurant did not live up the rating given here. The decor is dated and unusual - it feels like you're in a community hall recently decorated,... More

We ordered take out for a little treat, order came to about £30 for 2 people sharing a curry which is pricey but don't mind as it's always excellent..well, was excellent. Food was cold and disappointing, curry was bland. Chips cold and soggy. Nan bread was cold. The side orders were good and the meat itself was lovely quality, but... More

The food here is exceptional. The staff are so knowledgeable and helpful. Lamb Desi is my favourite, with cinnamon rice. Best Indian food we've had.

The service is excellent and the food is always exceptional. A firm favourite is the king prawn boona. Chicken chasni, and Lamb boona. Haggis pakora is fab too.

Varied menu with plenty of main courses choices to suit everyone's tastes. All dishes were well cooked and very tasty. Nice decor and friendly staff. The only slightly negative aspect was right at the beginning of our evening. When we were shown to our table, the waitress asked us what drinks we wanted. I asked for a few minutes to... More

Had visited here in 2014 with colleagues on business, back up on business again so had to pay a visit. Pleased to see it was just as great as last time, owner was happy to give advice about the different dishes and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Had the Cream of Tikka Tandoori Masala - creamy yet spicy with lots... More
