The very best, and freshest, high- quality, upscale, Indian food I've ever eaten... and I've eaten at many, many, Indian restaurants.
I'm fantasizing my next meal there!
Yumm!

The food was all delicious, from the appetizers and cocktails to the main dishes. Our server was very helpful in explaining unknown ingredients to us and in finding non-spicy options for some in our group who don't care for heat in their food.

The food was very good and the service was attentive but not overbearing. The noise level was conducive to table conversation. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Fantastic. We love Kama Bistro. The food is delicious, really outstanding. Thank you, Chef! I'm partial to the lamb shank nihari which was drop off the bone tender in a marvelous sauce. This was the first time coming on a Saturday night (be sure to make reservation early) and it was packed. We expected service to be backed up but were amazed at the fast service and attention we received from our waiter, Jeremy. Thank you for that, Jeremy, and thanks to the kitchen and bus staff who must have operated with top efficiency to deliver the food on order. I left off one star on Ambiance because the room was quite loud and it was sometimes difficult to talk at the table. Other than that, it remains a major go-to place for us in our home town.

I took my for dinner on her birth day. The food is okay for some one who may not have tasted Indian Food. For us , it was not. The Samosa was excellent. Nan didn't have the right taste profile . It was more on the chewy side and or rubbery. Lamb Chop was good. Kerala Fish Curry didn't meet our expectation ( may be because ) we are from South India. We know the taste of traditional Fish curry. Overall good

Kama Bistro never disappoints they are always wonderful. Great food, fantastic service, great bar. Very vegetarian friendly with wonderful carnivorous offerings as well. I come from a half vegetarian half carnivore household. Hard to find really wonderful places for everyone. Kama Bistro does it with aplomb. Ask for Adan if you get the chance. All their servers are wonderful but she is the best! Every time!

Kama has been consistently outstanding for years. Had a unique and delicious sea bass dish that complimented the eggplant side we ordered. Lamb taco appetizer is not to be missed.

We always love Kama. The food was delicious as always. I do feel like the prices have gone up a bit and portion sizes were smaller. They didn’t give us much rice and didn’t even add a little for our leftovers, which they have done in the past. All that said, we’ll still be back. So yummy!

A great Indian find in the southwest suburbs. Not your typical Indian restaurant, but overall a delicious fusion of flavors. The mussels are over the top, especially if you order naan to scoop up the flavorful tamarind sauce. The mixed seafood Tandoori grill is exceptional and cooked to perfection - spicy but not too spicy. The portions are perfect for sharing and the cocktail menu is fun and inventive. The service was a bit rushed but we were hungry and not planning on lingering so it was perfect for the occasion.

Kama Bistro is very good ethnic food (India' origin) in an upscale setting.
Entrees, appetizers and sides are all suitable for sharing and the menu has a fair amount of grilled items for all tastes. Tandoor lamb chops and grilled chicken were perfect. We were happy to see that Kama Bistro was busy and has found a niche in the area. Highly recommended for Indian food.

My girlfriend and I have been coming here for our anniversary and other special occasions for 7 years now (started going when they were at the old location). The food is always phenomenal! And the cocktails are good too. They have a unique menu that we really enjoy.
We always get the spicy potatoes and chicken Tikka Masala plus something we haven't tried yet. Honestly everything on the menu is great.

In the suburbs of Chicago you don’t really have a choice for sit down Indian food which is something people crave. When I heard about Kama Bistro I jumped on it although reviews on Yelp said their was poor service I went anyway. When we got there we were greeted with smiles and polite service as the evening went on we ordered appetizers and they were very good. The. My meal came and strook me like an arrow to the heart, it was that good I got the lamb masalla it was perfect.
I’m conclusion the service was very good unexpectedly and the food was delicious two I hope Kama Bistro is here for many years to come!
