This is the reason I like using trip advisor. Without it I wouldn't of had the enjoyment of eating 2 great meals on my recent visit to the area. All I need to say is Greta food, brilliant staff and value for money.

Indian fusion is a winner. Bold flavors balanced with lighter techniques create a cuisine that is modern and fresh. Great beer and wine selection. Seafood is wonderful

My family and I have been coming here since it opened around the corner from where it now is. Never have had a bad meal. The chicken achari is probably my favorite item on the menu. The lemon tadka is also something we can't seem to go without. I've never had the nerve to order the "Kamikaze" vindaloo. Service is... More

I've eaten here a few times and the food is just average while the prices are really high compared to what you get. I've eaten at a lot of better Indian food places that had a lot better food and cheaper prices.

We had a great experience! We had chicken tikka, lamb rogan josh, garlic and regular naan. The rice (extra long grained basmati) is a great example of their philosophy...use great products and treat them with respect. The music playing was a great enhancement to the experience. You'll be very happy with this choice.

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.

Description
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.
