Visited early in a fairly busy Friday night - the staff were so friendly and attentive - just right. Food was mixed Popadoms were stale ,chicken pakora starter excellent but onion bhanji a bit uninspiring. 2 excellent main courses but chicken achari and vegetable main course were a bit underdeveloped. rice good and naan okay. Nice selection of drinks and... More

Finally made it here after a long wait and I wasn't disappointed! Loved the haggis pakora, spare ribs and the lamb on the bone mum's recipe curry (I can't remember the name of it!). Would definitely recommend and will definitely be back....a week on Friday actually and all the way from Edinburgh. Not the most fancy of places but clean,... More

Aubergine pakora was the highlight of a very underwhelming dining experience. Dated decor coupled with the shockingly slow service made it very difficult to justify the prices.

Since we have been in the area we have tried a few resturants and takeaways but nothing in west lothian comes close to Karma. The food is sublime and we havent had a bad meal yet. Sauces are always beautiful and everything cooked to perfection. Always great reception when you enter or get pick up. I can understand why they... More

Has lived off Tam Cowans review for too long now. Still a decent curry but not what was once described in Daily Record as" the best curry in Scotland". When its good its very good, but can serve up the occasional bland meal, expensive all the same. Cant fault service.

First visit for a wee while since I stop commuting between Glasgow and Edinburgh. Well worth the detour with my son after the rugby at Murrayfield and the food did not disappoint. Massive congratulations to Jaggy and the team for yet another Best in Scotland award. Need to buy a bigger display cabinet!!!

Have been coming here for years, from back when it was Cafe Shebab. Now I've moved away and only visit Karma on special occasions, but it's ALWAYS worth it. The service and food is always exceptional. Karma is the jewel in West Lothian's crown. Although i now live close to Glasgow with a plethora of Indian restaurants nearby to choose... More
