I found this restaurant close to my hotel and stopped in for a wonderful meal. I ordered the vegetarian thali for $11.95 (included appetizer and soup not pictured). The quality and amount of food was well worth the price. The wait staff was incredibly friendly and the restaurant was clean with an upbeat ambiance. When I am back in town... More

Our large group descended onto Karma on Wednesday night to make use of their upstairs banquet area. We dined in both their front and back rooms, and because there was so many of us, we were a fairly demanding group. The staff at this restaurant took it all in stride, working hard to provide us with the best service possible.... More

Karma has been my favorite Indian restaurant for a couple of years now. I've come so much I have a "usual!" The service here is friendly and quick. It's great for lunch or dinner. The spice levels ranks from 1-10. I like spicy food but can't handle it very well but still get 8. I would recommend starting here if... More

Love Indian food, especially for the large selection of vegetarian options. Headed over to Karma because it was close to our hotel and was well-rated on TripAdvisor. Looked empty from the street, but don't let that fool you - the main dining hall is toward the back. While you'll find many of the "standard" Indian offerings, there are some you... More

This long time local restaurant relocated from a few blocks away. The new digs are modestly changed from the ill fated original restaurant which built the entire restaurant years ago. Design was expensive, creative but not to my taste. Nevertheless, it is heartening that Karma chose to make few changes (not spend a lot to redesign and construct like many... More

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
