Karma was recommended to me as a celiac friendly option and they were great. Going at the end of our big snowstorm meant it was actually pretty quiet.

Fish was not fresh, actually made my friend sick. This is the first time it’s been like this for us, just low quality food. Our server was awesome though! She really took care of us, very nice and efficient. But unfortunately I will not be returning.

Excellent sushi with a very large selection of gluten free options (my wife is extremely sensitive and had a great meal). The service was terrific.

It was just mind blowing on how welcoming the place was but at the same time the energy was amazing. You couldn’t help yourself but smile the whole time you are there because you are having such a blast. The food was fresh and delicious. You got many choices to choose from and the drinks was mouth worthy. You go there and you would not be disappointed one bit!!!

Karma is definitely the best Sushi option in Flagstaff. I only didn't give 4 stars because A: I have had truly exceptional Sushi in other cities and B: the staff did seem a bit overwhelmed at times on a busy night. Saturday night is always busy there and they should be able to manage; but one of my beverages was delayed for some time and some of the big rolls that came out of the back kitchen were loosely made and just fell apart when attempting to pick them up with anything but your hand (which I don't mind eating sushi with my hands as that is somewhat traditional anyway). These are minor points to a great night and great tasting food, but this is why 4 stars instead of 5. The Tuna trio app is a must and the Red Dragon Roll is excellent. The Hamachi sashimi was great as always and this time we tried the Suzuki sashimi and it was better than we hoped, we'll be having that again.

This is one of the few sushi options in Flagstaff, and the food was pretty good. It wasn't he best sushi I have ever had if I compare it to places I have eaten in bigger cities, but definitely enjoyable and a good option in Flagstaff. It was very crowded, so I recommend a reservation. It is not the place to go if you are looking for quiet dining. It has a loud, energetic atmosphere. It is clearly very popular. Considering how busy it was and the limited staff, I was impressed with how quick our food came and how attentive our waiter was.

We went here with family and enjoyed it so much we came back a few days later. I had the Sirloin Teryaki Bowl the first time and Sushi the second time both were great. If you are in the area you need to try this restaurant. You won’t be disappointed.

We went out looking for a nice sushi restaurant with an upbeat vibe. The vibe was there, but the sushi was less than I would expect. Most of the rolls were what I would call 'modern, or hip-hop' sushi. Almost every option was tempura or had odd combinations. I wanted something with unagi... not an option. The server recommended a 'house favorite', but I did not finish it because it was coated in warm 'yum yum' aka Miracle whip. My wife ordered Jasmine tea... but it never came. They were super busy, so we asked for a text if a bar seat came available - got no text, so we checked back after an hour and the bar had 6 open seats. If you want to try sushi, but don't really appreciate true rolls and sashimi this might be a nice way to dip your toe into Japanese fare. Definitely not for those who like a real sushi restaurant.

This restaurant was a great find. Other sushi places we looked at closed at 9 PM but Karma was open till 1000. All 5 in our party were amazed how good everything was including the sushi, the noodle bowls and the drinks. The service was fabulous and parking was easy.

This may we’ll be the best sushi in Arizona. Started off with an offering from the famed Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo flown in and incredibly fresh. Then on to custom rolls, made with flair and some very reasonably priced sushi rolls. The staff is clearly knowledgeable and proud of their craft. The house. Cocktails were really fun as well. This exceeded my expectations.

Really wanted to believe the rave reviews about the quality of the sushi at Karma. Unfortunately, the sushi was average at best. The flavor and texture of the suggested rolls disappointed. The rolls proved bland and the sushi roll segments too large to comfortably eat in one bite. Yikes. Hoping we caught Karma on a bad night.
