Unbelievably Bad.

I only send in reviews when the restaurants are really good or really bad.Unfortunately Kama is certainly the latter. We attend the theater in Toronto on a regular basis, normally with friends who are not fans of Indian food. As they could not attend this show, we took the opportunity to go and... read more

Scored a great groupon for lunch here. Food was very good, warm and fresh. Could use more meat in the meat dishes, and getting naan was a bit of a hassle. service wasn't anything special, but I had water all the time. Good price with groupon, may not visit for full price though.

Have been here many times, as we live in the neighbourhood. It's always been a good deal price-wise, although some of the buffet items were lacking. Had the buffet on a Monday night recently, pleasantly surprised by a couple of things. Hot, crispy pappadams and fritters on the hot table, and a nice selections of veg and non-veg dishes. Delicious,... More

We went to Kama's on a Saturday and we were quite pleased with the food. I might also mention that the Groupon voucher we used was also attractive in terms of value. The buffet had very good dishes that satisfied our party of five. We liked the variety of foods and perhaps the only negative observation was the limited choices... More

Went for dinner, great location - and that's where the positives end. Bland, cold food, gloomy atmosphere. Terrible service on all fronts. Worst, misleading groupon ever which turns out to being a hustle. Got in an argument with management over the terms of our rediculous "deal". Escalated to a shouting match, though not surprised as the staff was drinking whiskey... More

Went there for Lunch buffet...the place is nice and big as compared to Aroma and Dhaba. Ambiance is even better than other two. Service was also good, but the only and most important thing which was average was the food. The curries lacked the indian flavors and preparations were just okay...the taste was not that great. I think they need... More

I have been to this restaurant many times, not greatly satisfied, but acceptable. This last Friday, however, was the worst. Same menu in the past two years, plus the quality is deteriorating. The food was too greasy, salty, the meat (almost non existent in the lamb stew) was chewy, the whole aspect of the presentation was uninviting. Service is usually... More

It's a good place to grab a reasonable priced meal before the theatre. No wait to be seated or for food to come. Good variety of dishes available. Fresh naan brought to the table. It's a buffet. I believe they have a la carte available. Been a couple of times. Not outstanding but good.

Perhaps different nations have different expectations of their ethnic restaurants. As a UK visitor to Canada, Kama Indian certainly did not meet mine. We rejected the buffet quickly. It looked pretty ghastly and I did not appreciate the inclusion of spring rolls and mac cheese - or some similar pasta dish. That left the choice of leaving or ordering from... More

This place has survived many years of competition in this theatre district. This time around, I found the servers much more friendly and accommodating. The buffet offered a good selection of Indian food (although I'm not an expert), and a whole section of vegetarian, clearly labeled. Naan was brought to the table as well as offered on the buffet. Everything... More
