Excellent and creative vegan dishes. I could eat every meal here and never get bored. The only problem is that the space is sooooo small and in all the years I've been visiting this restaurant, I've never had efficient or friendly service. Highly recommend in any event.

Small spot. Many options for vegans. Started with the carrot ginger soup. Pass that one up next time ... didn't tickle my tongue. I tried the southwest bowl. Really tasty. I would have appreciated a little bit of a larger portion size ... but it was good. Looking forward to coming back and trying some more dishes.

Good Karma is a quaint, small health food restaurant in Red Bank near the Navesink River. The menu is very interesting with a wide variety of interesting salads, sandwiches and entres. I had the Tempeh Reuben sandwich today. A substantial alternative to meat. Seating is tight and limited as its small place. Especially on weekends. But you can take out... More

I am not a vegan or vegetarian, but I enjoy good food and Good Karma Cafe does an outstanding job, all around. The Kimchi Bowl is wonderful, spicy and filling with layers of Kimchi, greens, beans and rice. The cheesecake here is delicious, two people can share a portion and have a great dessert. The waitstaff are attentive and helpful,... More

Good Karma is an intimate small café that serves unique creative vegan dishes. The menu is diverse & creative using only vegan ingredients. The café itself is small with only a few tables so it can get crowded very quickly. The staff is friendly & knowledgeable. The food tastes incredibly good. The desserts are surprisingly refreshing. They now serve breakfast.

Great menu with diverse offerings and regular specials to take it up a notch. The serving staff is very friendly and everyone makes sure you have what you need. The place is tiny, so large groups are tough. But I hear they are trying to expand into the space next door which would be a huge win for Red Bank.... More

I'm not vegetarian or vegan... full on Carnivore here... and if this is the vegan food I was going to have everyday to give up meat, well count me in as a Vegan. The food here is some of the most delicious food I've ever had... as a Carnivore, you won't even miss the meat. Really tastes like food cooked... More

As a vegan what an incredible delight it was to go somewhere and have pages of options open to me! Good Karma Cafe is a cute little all vegan cafe in the historic section of Red Bank. I had the Pad Thai and the kitchen added seitan strips for me even though it wasn't on the menu. It was amazing!... More

With new vegan options popping up around the area with their little flair on vegan food, Good Karma Cafe is still on my list of preferences no matter what. I love the consistency in their menu and their food, and the specials they come up with are fit for the season and always something creative. Their big bonus that other... More
