I live locally and don't understand why I don't frequent this place more often. On this visit, I played it safe and got the TIkka Masala (chicken), garlic naan and the cucumber salad. They all went so well together. I sat at the bar and had a glass of wine while I waited for my food to take home (had... More

I am so impressed by this place, that I'm literally having trouble to figure out how to start writing a review. The ambiance blew my mind. It's something I'd never expect for an Indian restaurant. So elegant and classy. I heard the owner's wife had to do a bit with the interior, and I must say, she's done an excellent... More

The food, the atmosphere and the staff are awesome. Just stopped in as a last minute and I was an excellent surprise. We were not totally up on all things Indian food and the waitress was very attentive in providing answers to our questions. The food. Was excellent. Totally recommend and will go there again.

Take your classic Indian food and transform it to something magical. I would not recommend this place to anybody is not own to trying new flavor profiles. You will... More

My wife ordered briani, typical indian rice dish with meat and spices. Food was horrible, we could not eat it due to extreme spice in it (There were tons of green chilis in it) despite the fact that she specified she wanted to have it medium spicy. On top of it, it was very oily, and we could not taste... More

We're Indian food devotees and we live in La Grange so we're stuck with this place, there's no where else around. The food is sometimes OK, often-times prepared not according to our requests and sometimes just mediocre or lousy. Dine in? Forget it. They are so often completely overwhelmed, under-staffed, SOMETHING, or maybe they just don't know their business. When... More

Love this place - it's quiet, the servers are kind and helpful and the food delicious, even if you are new to Indian food. The staff will help you find something you will like. Start with the Naan bread and chicken tikka - hot and delicious!

Review written after our 3rd visit. Good variety of tasty dishes. Service was good. Courses come out of kitchen piece-meal fashion (we ordered several appetizers along with main courses) Would have liked to have seen the appetizers and Naan come out together. Food prices are reasonable, the bar prices are not, $14 for a rum and coke that was all... More

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.
