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..

We were celebrating our 21 year wedding anniversary and Ayah made it so special! Starting with the spice rack cocktail then a champagne celebration toast🥂courtesy of Kama followed by a yummy pineapple martini with cardamom syrup and a Nordic sunset with hibiscus 🌺 grenadine....spectacular! Wait we ended with a Kama-rita infused with turmeric, tequila and yummy taste of coconut and tamarind a true party in your mouth! We also had some food :) The lemon tadka is unlike anything I have ever tasted before so creamy and decadent like a beautiful marriage of lemon and fenugreek flavors❤️ ok the dessert was a bread pudding that was insanely out of this world so rich in flavors a must try!!!!! I think the highlight for my other half was the extra spicy vindaloo chili paste that he enjoyed so much and even got to take home. Overall, we will be coming here regularly and most definitely during our anniversary month! Cheers to 21 years and cheers to Kama Bistro for putting in the extra effort to make this experience extraordinary! Kama Bistro you are such a DAL😊

Food was good, although small and pricey. Service was extremely slow, probably not their fault considering current politics with people getting paid to stay and not work.

The absolute worst dining experience. We were an inconvenience to the waitress and the manager on duty said it was because it was hot outside. They booked us at 8:30 then told us the kitchen was closing as though it was our fault. T

Had a great time! Table was ready for our 5:45pm reservation. Our server was sweet and attentive. Food came out quickly and was delicious as always. I absolutely love the Chicken Tikka Masala while hubby likes his spicy chicken vindaloo! Of course we could not eat without Naan! I tried their ginger ice tea for the first time and boy was that refreshing! I’d get it every time! We finished up with the lemongrass lemon cheese cake (TO DIE FOR!) and a mango lassi. Love this place, so happy it made it through a crazy 2020 and we will definitely be back soon!

I had extremely bad experience because the air conditioning didn’t work properly. It is the second time that we go there and I wanted it to give it a second chance. It was very hot in the restaurant and also the table next to us was complaining that it was too hot. We had to leave before dessert. Too bad because we were celebrating our 25th year anniversary.

Even though she called and ask about what colour we like … no idea why she asked because there isn’t anything like that

They were out of many dishes and dessert specials that we were interested in - and we were there early for dinner -- 5:15pm! It seemed strange that they didn't have all the menu items early in the evening. Also our waiter did not bring the second drink my husband had ordered. When we pointed it out after being charged for it, and the experience of all the missing food items, I thought the one drink he had ordered would be removed from the bill, but was not.

The food we ordered was overall good.

I’m usually skeptical of ‘fusion’ dining establishments but this was an exception. The cocktails were creative and the drink selection was impressive for an Indian restaurant. And the non fusion dishes were very good. Probably my fav Indian place in the suburbs.

The kitchen was out of a number of our choices. Service was slow to arrive so one of our party went to the bar to get us drinks. The quality of the food was poor and a definite deterioration since previous pre-pandemic visits. We thought Trader Joe’s frozen Indian food was tastier.
