Very good Indian food with excellent service and atmosphere. It is relatively expensive but worth it. Portions are large so you can easily split/share in order to try different dishes.

Saturday night bar into dinner with friends....Sunday brunch buffet....both visits were memorable. They have creatively incorporated their house chutneys into delicious drink menu. Staff is highly informative, especially valuable for those less familiar with Indian fare. Menu is diverse and all selections delicious. Also one of group was gluten sensitive and we pleasantly discovered how gluten free Indian cooking is.... More

I read such great reviews and there's not many Indian restaurants in or near La Grange. We ordered several items for takeout. It's very pricey and just ok. Won't try it again.

Friends who are regulars at this restaurant took us here. I haven't had a lot of experience with Indian food, but they and my husband have, and they say it's top notch. All I know is that I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the comfort of the restaurant and its staff. Definitely recommend.

I wasn't that thrilled about meeting my old roommate at an Indian restaurant in La Grange to catch up but was I in for a surprise. I loved the atmosphere - very cozy and friendly. The wait staff was attentive and informative. Everything we ordered was flavorful. From the buttered naan to the lamb tacos we could not be more... More

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.

Restaurant came highly recommended so our party of 4 tried and loved it!! We all had lamb; some in tikka masala & some vindaloo. Lamb tacos a little too spicy for us but samosas perfect. Garlic naan rocked but never got 2nd order we placed. Finally got some to go after asking 2 more times. Never got the basmati we... More

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

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.
