Whoever said that Karma is a B; clearly haven't been to "Karma" the place that made me fall in love with food again.
It is the latest hip place that recently opened at City Stars's new phase by the VIP cinema, it is the PERFECT location to dine and wait for your movie or just eat and enjoy this place's beautiful ambiance.
Karma has a modern/rustic feel with the most comfortable balance between the table settings, lights and to me the music was spot on; up beat yet easy. I know you are now eager to know the most important aspect of a restaurant the "FOOD" I can honestly tell you it is worth each penny you spend (we all do the value of money vs. portion/taste equation ) the portion is ENORMOUS with an impeccable menu that ranges with mouth watering (to a drooling limit lol) starters to salads; succulent main dishes, desserts and creative drinks.
Karma's kitchen offers everything you can think of from international cuisines , in addition to the most delicious Asian Fusion items; dare I say the best Asian in town? (Hell yeah! IT IS...). I can't wait to show and tell my exquisite experience at that exceptional hot, new spot.
So my best friend Shereen is in town for spring break and instead of our boring usual we decided to go somewhere new, worthy of our memories; and perfect it was, we met new people and people we haven't met in years; I believe you can picture the blast from the past/back to the future moments, the evening turned to a late night as time flew by that's how much we were enjoying our evening over delicious food and drinks.
We had the Crab and Smoked Salmon, and the Quinoa salads. The look of the crab and salmon stacked was so beautiful we didnt want to touch it so it stays so beautiful, and the vinaigrette is out of this world. You know what else is out of this world the GLORIOUS "Beef Teriyaki" it is addictive...We also had the humble yet explosive "Cheesy Meatballs" on a stick hehe and we ended the starters round by the adorable"Bao Bao Shrimp" its like a crunchy bundle of joy. You'd think we stopped here nope, we are just getting started;
We had a lot of main dishes to share between us (I can assure you nothing went to waste, we cleaned everything LOL) as Karma is the only restaurant on this area that servers Asian Fusion we decided that it was only fair that we try and know for our selves if they have the guts to pull it through and damn it people did they do.... by miles and miles, the veggie noodles is way beyond amazing it is really different very decadent yet not greasy. As for the "Fried Rice"(yes rice and noodles, please don't judge us lool) all I can say it was the best version of fried rice ever invented with the famous "Sweet and Sour Chicken" and to break the Asian strike you know we thought to add in one more chicken dish just for luck we had "Chicken Cacciatore" served with saute veggies it's perfect to clean your palette along with refreshering cold Mojito, a cocktail of secret ingredients smoothie (Mango, Pineapple and Parsley, shhhh...) the third was a coffee drink and get ready for the dessert round.
For the final round we were treated by two happy options to end our evening; a"Sizzling Sweet potato and Ice Cream" and "Crep Maki". It was an exciting experience for us and we know for fact it won't be our last.
Try new places, try new things...I hope you feel as good as we did and forget your worries in the warm hospitality of their staff.
I would also like to recommend all you seafood lovers out there to try "The Linguine Salmon Pasta" and "Karma Salmon Tornado"; seriously it is spinach STUFFED salmon drizzled with Capri sauce, YUM!
