Free valet parking, we were a bit early and our table was ready within a few minutes. The food was good(I had the lamb chops) and the waiter asked for our preferred spiciness level.

We went here for dinner on a Friday night. The atmosphere and decor are lovely. We had the paneer makhni, mulligatawny soup, and the cornish hen. Portions were generous and the spice level was on point (they can make it less or more spicy depending on how you like it). It's not like a typical traditional Indian restaurant, it's a little more unique (almost fusion) but you won't be disappointed with the food. It's great to have such a nice Indian restaurant in LaGrange. We'll definitely come back.

Be careful when you order appetizers. They never disclose the price of their specials. Two people with a couple drinks, bill was $120, Service and value are going downhill.

My wife and I are frequent flyers here. We are pescatarian. The preparations are unmatched . Try anything on the menu and you will receive a familiar item that has been given there Kama treatment. From naan to their sea bass no item comes of of that kitchen that isn't special.

Kama Bistro has a great new lunch menu, reasonably priced for very fresh and well spiced lamb, chicken and vegetable dishes. The naan was excellent. The drink selection is quite expansive, including many teas as well as many craft beers and hard ciders. They have been included in the menu if they pair well with the Indian dishes.

We're so lucky to have this restaurant in the neighborhood. The food is outstanding - all dishes are interesting and delicious. We've gone with a group, and many times with just two of us, and every time the combination of the food+ambience+service is fantastic. We truly have never been disappointed in any aspect when we've eaten here. That is why we chose to come here for New Year's Eve and why we've made it our "go to" place in the western suburbs.

I would recommend Kama because I have been going there since it first opened. However, I do this with some major caveats. They’ve become stingy with the rice (which is really annoying, since it costs almost nothing). We were five people, and they presented on medium sized bowl of rice. Also, their cocktails were a little bit short (done by putting two large olives in the martini one time and the second time it was just short). The food is always good, although the lamb was tough and tasted like it had been cooked for too long. I probably wouldn’t bother to comment, but for what they charge ($3.50 for a small naan, for example, $26 for three large shrimp), I have higher expectations. I will always have a soft spot for Kama, and I certainly don’t know where you can get better Indian food in The Chicago area, but I’m not sure how often I’ll go there.

We are frequent flyers. The problem here really is that the standard here is so high that you are a bit disappointed when you dine, especially Southeast Asian, elsewhere.
On the occasion the Tandori sea bass was a thick cut with blackened seeds cooked to perfection..
There naan is flaky and perfect.
Just everything that comes out of that kitchen will impress.
Go!

We were a group of three couples, old friends who had not seen eachother for awhile. We had a delicious meal, were well guided by our waiter, Miles, who made great recommendations on foods and spicing, was attentive and never made us feel rushed. One suggestion which we greatly appreciated was to have 2 extra lamb chops added to a dish (of 4 chops) so that everyone in our group could have one. We appreciated eating family style to try more foods, loved the mussels and lamb dishes. Noise level was great-not too loud. Overall terrific! Looking forward to going back!
