Description: Kama Bistro is named after the Indian cupid, the god of love and passion...
Kama Bistro is named after the Indian cupid, the god of love and passion, symbolizing the aesthetic pleasure of the senses. Indulge your senses and experience the passion Kama brings to its food and service. This is not your ordinary Indian food. Kama Bistro’s menu puts an emphasis on fresh, high quality ingredients. Freshly ground spices go into sauces made from scratch every day. Homemade paneer (cottage cheese), all-natural chicken and prime domestic lamb make for superior protein. Everything is prepared to order to ensure its quality. The menu is rounded out with innovative cocktails, diverse wine and a select microbrew list to accompany your food. The martinis, including mango, cinnamon pleasure, pineapple and cucumber chili, are always made from fresh fruit purees and homemade syrups, all-natural and a perfect balance to spicy food.

Our favorite La Grange restaurant!

This is our favorite restaurant in Downtown La Grange. We eat there and take out. Menu has lots of good options, some favorites are the lamb vindaloo (but watch out, even half heat is HOT and we usually like spicy), vegetable jhalfrazee, and lamb roganjosh. Our kids love the chicken tikki masala... read more

Our kids love the chicken tikki masala. Food is fresh and not greasy.

I have been to Kama numerous times -- it is fabulous!! Everything is made to perfection, to your taste (spicy tolerance - low to high) and it is always incredibly fresh. Being from Chicago I have access to many Indian restaurants but Kama Bistro is always my first (and only) choice. I highly recommend it to everyone!!

So, this is sort of like an Indian Polish fusion I think. Its a little different from the buffets on Devon, but we LOVE it. I have never had a disappointing meal here. It is a bit pricey, so we can't go as often as we would like. Also, whenever we get takeout, they mess it up, so just dine... More

I am a vegetarian and really like this restaurant. The service has always been good and the atmosphere is nice. The only reason I give it a 4 is they tend to be very slow getting the food out. As long as you aren't in a hurry it's great!

Everyone was raving about this place, so my wife and I said we don't want to miss out. Well we could have skipped this place. It started with the soup, I found a sharp piece of plastic in the soup. I pointed this out to the waitress, she apologized. She then left and returned to say that she will take... More

The restaurant is small, but well designed and decorated. The menu is fairly extensive, but very flexible. You can select your cooking style, sauces preference and protein. The chef will accomodate. The server was very knowledgeable and helpful, and the support staff was very attentive. Servings are in shareable format. An impressive though not huge wine list, as well as... More

The food was exceptional - service outstanding - flow of food delivery was seamless - couldn't ask for anything more! This restaurant should serve as a model/standard for any type of cuisine. We've had many Indian food meals including several restaurants on Devon. All were good but this was truly phenomenal. From the lamb taco appetizer, the chicken chili (appetizer)... More
