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.

Best Indian food of my life!

Adorable place with great ambience. The owners are a delight and the food is the best contemporary Indian cuisine I've ever had in my life!

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

My colleagues and I are in La Grange for 2 weeks for work, we have been to Kama Bistro 3 times thus far (a few days remaining on the trip at the time of this review). I have eaten Indian food all over the world, including in multiple cities in the United Kingdom and India itself. This is, without exception,... More

Wonderful atmosphere and even better food. Great traditional dishes, but also wonderful fusion of other cultures. My wife isn't a huge fan of Indian cuisine, but she had a great time and we will be back!

This was my first Indian food experience. So I have nothing to compare it to. I will say that the food was excellent and the same goes for the service. It seems like a hip spot to just go for a drink or have a nice dinner. I will definitely be back to try some other dishes.

We went here to celebrate my sisters birthday. She started off ordering a margarita at the bar which I found odd that they poured into a martini glass because they didn't have actual margarita glasses. Furthermore, we ordered a couple more Martinis on the menu which were $10 for mostly juice. The shrimp appetizer was really good, not sure the... More

We even have our children eating Indian food now! Our favorites- chili potatoes, samosa, chicken tikka masala, and chicken vindaloo, all the nan and most of the dal. My non- fish eating children ask to go here just for the Tandoori Sea Bass. It is a little expensive to take the whole family frequently- but definitely a great treat!
