We went here for dinner after visiting the Museum of the American Revolution. Most of the clientele were people from India or of Indian descent. Good sign, right? The sign out front said "First timer recommendations" which caught our interest. I like the indian food I have had but not a lot of experience. I try to avoid fried foods so that ruled out about 3/4 of the menu items. But there were still many healthy choices. I had the baked Cauliflower appetizer- a tiny bit spicy and delicious. For an entree I had Saag Paneer (a spinach dish) with chicken, I asked for medium spicy which was as hot as I could stand. The chicken was a little dry and tough but there was plenty of spinach sauce to go with. The guy I was with had Lamb Korma and he was very happy. We wished we had ordered a side of bread. But portions were large and we brought home about half of it.
The service was excellent, back ground music was just right, enjoyable, not too loud. I would give this 4 stars because of dry chicken but that might result in bad karma.

The food at Karma is really tasty and fulfilling. I had the chicken Thali and it comes with a lot of side dishes to satisfy your hunger. Good Indian restaurant. The only thing that I didn't like was the decor. It was not bright in colors. I wish they had a shade of white inside to make it look big and bright. I hope someone reads my feedback does a color change.

Enjoyed chicken tandoori with rice. Excellent, could not finish my portion. Friendly staff, casual, relaxed down home environment, not fancy but clean, great prices and would definitely go back.

We were pleasantly surprised by the excellent food and spices that Karma Restaurant & Bar had to offer. We would recommend everything. The atmosphere was very Indian and liked the decor, especially the elephant.

This was one of the best Indian restaurants I've been to, highly recommended. All the food we had was perfect and delicious. Also amazing service, not too much and not too little. If you are looking for great Indian food in Old City go here!!
