This place has a small and crisp menu which is tasty and the food is full of flavor. The owner and the staff are so friendly and patient.
Best Indian food in Chicagoland!
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.
I frequent this place as the food never fails to impress. Always leave satisfied and pleased with my meal selection. If you are looking for great Indian flavor..... well worth the trip.
Went for LaGrange restaurant week and as a table, we all selected the special menu so we could try a bit of everything. There was a absolutely nothing to complain about. All was delicious. I got to have my favorites at the special price. You must try the lamb tacos!
Outstanding authentic great food!. We’ve been coming since the restaurant first opened.
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.
Good food, quick service. However very less vegetarian options
No matter what I try on the menu, (and I have been here enough to try lots of things), everything is incredibly flavorful. There are layers of flavor, and complimentary, complex sauces. We love this place!
Always a great meal to share with friends. The sauces are amazing and the ingredients fresh. I would highly recommend this as fusion Indian fare.
So delicious and authentic. Food is always amazing at Kama, and the service is perfect. That’s why it’s become one of our favorite Friday or Saturday dinner spots!
Noise level was bit high, the Okra dish was fabulous.
Our waitress was very knowledgeable. The environment was relatively quiet. The busier it got, the louder the noise level. The food was good. I felt It was a bit pricey for a lunch bufffet.
This place is fantastic! Great service, food, ambiance, and value. Hands down one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to.
Everything was wonderful, as usual. Love the flavors offered at Kama from the crispy chili potatoes to the biryani to jumbo prawns in the seafood grill. I have yet to have something here I didn’t like. Oh, and the garlic naan...can’t get enough.
Enjoyed the food and drinks. This is my favorite Indian restaurant.
Be aware that for 2 people, you'll be spending $100 at the least. Food and ambiance was definitely worth it though!
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.
The service was great. Romantic atmosphere. First time having India food . This was a great choice to get introduce to the cuisine.
It is always a pleasure to dine at Kama. Great food, wonderful atmosphere, personable and friendly staff all enhance the pleasure of a regular night out or a special occasion. Our favorite area restaurant!
Food was phenomenal! Had several gluten free and dairy free options. Service was fine up to the point that we finished our meal. It took a while to get pour food boxed and the check. Will definitely give it another try!!
Food and service is always fantastic! Creative dishes that are great for sharing with a group. Exclusive beer and wine menu highlights the great food! All the staff are trained well and make the dining experience terrific whether with a large party or small group. One of the top restaurants - including the city of Chicago.
Excellent Indian brunch. Great for friends to get together. Food was delicious. Great variety brunch buffet!!
Very good food, great quality and amazing service.
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!
Dining room was super cozy on a cold January night. The food was really good; they did a nice job matching our spice tolerance. The service was outstanding.
I met a friend for an early dinner on a cold Saturday late afternoon; we both appreciated the complimentary valet parking and the warm entrance. We were seated immediately, the service was attentive and the food was excellent. By the time we were wrapping up, Kama was bustling with a night crowd, but we were able to enjoy quiet catch-up time before the noise levels increased. I'd recommend the spot to everyone who likes good, mildly spicy Indian food!
Kama Bistro is a favorite spot of ours. We love coming here with our family. The food is fantastic and the people are wonderful. They are always accommodating of all our needs.
We love this place, we have dined in and carried out in the past. The food never disappoints. However, the servers were really awkward this visit. Not sure if they were short staffed, it didn't seem so because we had a bus server, a water server and then our main server. All three together operated awkwardly. Our main server didn't take our drink order and we finally put it in with our food order more than 40 min after arrival. He seemed very stressed and rushed, but spent more time joking around with clients then serving them. It was apparent that he was serving 2 other tables near us that arrived after us and both had their food and/or drinks before our group of 4 adults and 1 kid. The water girl asked if she could take anything from our table, when all we had was water. The bus mixed our leftover bags up by putting 2 families in one bag and then putting our chicken curry and lamb vindaloo in the same take away container mixing up the sauces. Our one guest ordered the $30 seafood platter, she sent nearly a whole platter to the back to be put in a to-go box as we were full but only 3 pieces of fish were in the container with no sauce or rice. The whole night was odd and we were sad our guests experienced this. Best part was the food is always great so I know our guests will return.
Great staff and delicious food!
In any other circumstance, I would give Kama 5 stars for EVERY rating, I love it so. Unfortunately, our New Year's Eve dinner was not up to their standards. There were several families with crying children and babies -- On New Year's Eve, people -- really ruined the adult vibe of an adult evening out. Service was short staffed, so we didn't feel too special on our special date. Food outstanding as always and handcrafted cocktails were fabulous. This was our third or fourth New Year's dinner there and we were so very disappointed in overall experience. Young families, stay home and bake a pizza for the kids, they'll be so much happier!
Fresh ingredients and our server was knowledgeable.
We enjoyed our pre-Christmas meal.
The meal we had was superb. The lamb shank nihari was particularly excellent, the tumeric cauliflower and potatoes a perfect complement. I've eaten Indian food in several countries and Kama surpasses them all. The service was also excellent and we enjoyed meeting the chef/owner.
Ask for Jeremy! Kindest , sweetest service. Of course the food is the best!
Kama Bistro was recommended by several friends, and I am so glad to have finally visited this wonderful restaurant. The food was creative and delicious, with more subtle spice flavors and less focus on spicy heat than other Indian restaurants, which we very much appreciated. The service was attentive but not intrusive - the perfect amount. The decor is modern and comfortable. We will definitely be back to try more selections!
Great birthday experience for my friend!
We have gone to Kama on several occasions and it has yet to disappoint. The food is clearly Indian, but it is not the traditional stuff that one finds at most Indian restaurants. Many of the items are prepared to have a cleaner, more polished look and taste. We ordered only the vegetarian options, many of which are relegated to the "sides" part of the menu. While they were all very good, some items were rather salty, especially the bhindi (okra). The service was excellent, friendly, helpful. Although minor, it would be nice to teach the staff the correct pronunciation of the items. Also, the alcoholic drinks are rather pricey.
Grill food is exquisite. Curry food I wish was less creamy.
Food was delicious. Service was very good. Atmosphere perfect.
