Kama is God of love, passion & desire. Kama symbolizes aesthetic pleasure of the senses – touch, smell, flavor, vision and sound. Food is our most intimate connection to nature and a source of everlasting memories.

We bring the fresh, bold and authentic flavors of Indian cuisine made from scratch to La Grange and surrounding suburbs. Our menu highlights cuisine from various regions of India and its fusion with American favorites. We offer over 10 distinct sauces and chutneys made with our proprietary fresh ground spice blends and fresh ingredients all made from scratch. We use a charcoal Tandoori grill to cook all meats and bake fresh bread to order. Modern, vibrant, contemporary and chic are the words used to describe Kama’s dining room. A perfect place to bring friends and family, impress a date and out of town guest..

Haven’t been here in a while with the pandemic ongoing. Pleasantly surprised to see there were other people dining on a Wednesday night...and with good reason. The food is delicious. We started with mussels which were outstanding. The service was good and for safety sake there are no more printed menus...you can view and order online even within the restaurant.
We had a lovely evening and will plan our return

One of the best restaurants in LaGrange - hands down. Great service, excellent food and nice atmosphere. The restaurant week menus and value are excellent.

Mildly disappointed. I get that things are not normal due to COVID, but I’m not a fan of ordering food and drinks from my phone. Food was decent, but overpriced. Floors were dirty and there was a lot of clutter around. The bus boy was the most attentive person there. Most likely will not be back.

I booked table for 8.30 pm which required credit card. I called them to inform them that we are on our way, I was reminded that the kitchen closes at 9 pm. at the time of check in again the same reminder, then the host comes in , again the same reminder, so we quickly placed order for appetizers , as soon as i placed the order again I was reminded that the kitchen closes at 9 pm, then the food comes, again i was reminded that this is it, the kitchen is going to close. All the time I felt that we were in a wrong place. Moreover, if you are concerned about the kitchen closing then change the time , do not put open till 9 pm. Not sure what would they tell if a customer arrives at 8.50 pm , because technically they are still open. Very annoying, i would not go to this place again.

The restaurant was quaint and very cozy. The food was delicious. We ordered samosa for appetizer and the tandoori chicken and chicken tikka masala and we loved every single thing.

Food was spectacular! But it took a while to come out for a party of two.

A little constructive feedback in case Kama Bistro monitors this: I understand the "mask on while being serviced" mandate, but the check-ins need to be A LOT more infrequent with that rule in place. Every third bite of food, we were interrupted by a waiter/busboy/water person/manager which required us to stop eating or talking, put on our mask, and engage with the staff. 90% of those interactions were simply to remark "we're fine, thanks". Thought to share in case it can help improve.

Food was great but they did not tell us that they were going to be opening the windows as we sat inside. The temperature was 35 degrees so that ruined the majority of our experience.

The restaurant has both indoor and outdoor dining options, with a relaxed ambiance and beautiful interior. The food arrived quickly and was delicious.the flavors are more Indian-American fusion and would definitely recommend their cocktails.

My wife, my 7 year old daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, yet again! The food is exactly what you'd expect from a quality restaurant. I'm kicking myself for not remembering our server's name, but she was very pleasant, and very kind with my daughter! Knowing servers have alot of new service protocols, this lady did a great job! Top to bottom... well done Kama Bistro!

We love going to Kama Bistro! Food is always so flavorful - the staff was doing the best they could that night during the pandemic. Food deliverers gave everyone the wrong order including saying the spicy food was mild, almost giving the recipient a case of the sweats until we figured it out. LOL

Kama bistro exceeded my expectations! The service was amazing and the food was delicious. They even gave us a complimentary dessert because it was our anniversary! We spent $100 for an appetizer, 2 rounds of drinks, (they were strong & delicious!)2 entrees, a side of naan, and a side of pindi channa! Highly recommend!!! We left full, tipsy, and happy without breaking the bank!

Some of the food menu items were great - lacha paratha, malai kofta, naans but mugalai & vandaloo curry with vegetables were average. Little bit pricier than other Indian places from the burbs

Kama is the kind of place that just feels like home. The food is not only so tasty but so creative as well. The flavors really wake up your tastebuds. The staff is friendly and knows the menu very well when you are unsure of what to order. I can't wait to go back.

This was our first time visiting. It was recommended by some friends. Food was great. Due to the current situation, we had a table on the sidewalk. But that was not a problem as it was a great night.
Very flavorful dishes.
Beer could have been a little colder.

We love Kama. We generally get the same things because they are so yummy (lemon tadka with paneer, lamb black pepper masala, bangan bharta). Maybe we should try something new, but why mess with it?

Wonderful dinner. The restaurant is very nice and the staff was welcoming and professional. We sat inside at a limited-seating hightop. The food was served at an appropriate pace and everything was delicious. Kama Bistro is a quality restaurant experience at reasonable prices. Definitely worth repeating!
