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!

My wife and I had our first experience with Indian cuisine at Kama Bistro and they did not disappoint. The food had great favor and the right amount of spice. The outside dinning was a little noisy due to traffic and the distance to the railroad tracks. Foot traffic was light and outside dinning area was spacious and clean. I would recommend this place for dining.

Our kids food was brought much later than everyone else’s food. Then they charged more for the entrees than the menu listed without warning, even after charging a “Covid cleaning fee”. Keep an eye on your bill!

Food was great as usual. Service was a little slow, but understandable given that there is limited tables due to Covid-19 restrictions and it looks like reduced staff.

Great food but a little cold outside so moved inside when it table opened up.

I strongly suggest they give a better pour on their drinks. Both my wife and I had kama bistro old fashion and although the cost was high it seemed very light on the alcohol pour.

Same for the glass of wine my wife got after dinner.

The food was amazing and I look forward to when we are allowed to dine inside. Seating outside on Lagrange road is not ideal, but the restaurant does not have many options at this time and appreciate that they were able to open. Would go back again
