Karma Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Another wonderful meal at, in my opinion, the best Indian restaurant in the city. Always greeted with a warm welcome and a smile. The food is consistently fantastic and the service spot on, friendly and attentive without being over bearing. A gem in beautiful Olde City. If you love Indian food, or even a newbie to it, Karma is a delightful sensation for anyone who loves to eat exquisite meals!
First time here and I was very pleased. I am a huge fan of Indian food and have eaten in many places and have to say this place rates very well. Great food that met or exceeded my expectations. Vindaloo and Korma were great. Breads are great. I liked the beer selection for Kingfisher. Don't often drink Indian beets. Great for a date or night out with friends or family. Highly recommend!
The food here is very fresh and we loved our smiling friendly server!! He made excellent choices and suggestions and the food could not have been more perfect! Generous size portions. Enough for some lunch tomorrow! The most wonderful Indian spices!! Absolutely loved the food. We love coconut curry, so we had a mixed vegetable coconut curry, as well as a vegetable Brioni, as well as the pistachio reason stuffed bread, And a lentil yellow soup, and Indian Chai tea. It was all so good!!!
First time diners and the food was terrific. The service was good as well. As mentioned before, the table tops were very sticky. We even asked the server to wash our table because the silverware and glasses were stuck to it. They either need to get new tables or start using tablecloths. Now I see why they have a good take out business
The food here was ordinary Indian fair, it did have things from all different regions. The food was fine, not bad not wonderful. There were 6 of us and that seemed to be a problem. Drinks order was taken. First drink arrived and was given to the wrong person who tried it to discover it was not theirs. The server picked it up and sat it before the correct person and as an after thought took out the straw! The rest of the drinks came at different times, the last one in the middle of dinner after main course were already being consumed. I think if there are only two of you things would have gone much more smoothly.
Best Indian food in Philly! The waiter was awesome, we got really good recommendations. But the waitress, I guess she was in charge of the bar, stopped by the table every 3 minutes to offer us drinks even when we said we were not drinking that night. That was annoying and ruined the great experience. She even interrupted our conversation to ask if we wanted anything to drink, and that was the 6th time we had said "No, thanks"
Awesome food, waiters were awesome and funny but that chick from the bar was SUPER annoying.
We had an excellent meal chosen from a very wide-ranging menu with many appealing choices, including great vegetarian options. The night we were there the restaurant was having a problem in that one of their chefs was absent. Nevertheless, everyone on the staff was trying very hard, and was very apologetic for the slowness of the meal. It really didn't bother us because we had a nice bottle of wine and enjoyed a leisurely meal.
As a fan of the cuisine, this was by far the best Indian food I have had! There was something for everyone on the menu. I and a group of about 10 friends had a reservation for Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. Although there was some mix ups with some orders (mostly because of us butchering pronunciation), the quality and amount of food can't be beat. Creative shots and cocktails did not disappoint. The staff was attentive and friendly, making the experience a night to remember.
Karma is by far one of our favorite restaurants in the city. The waitstaff is very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food is delicious and Its difficult to choose a favorite. The chicken tikki masala is one of my favorites and never disappoints. Nice beer selection as well.
