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..

Rare to find tasty food and good ambience paired with excellent and quick service. Would recommend Kama for the experienced as well as uninitiated Indian food connoisseur.

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.

All the dishes except one (vegetables and paneer in Makhani sauce) were good. This one dish did not seem authentic makhani sauce and had too many potatoes and less paneer. They charged $3 extra for making it with panner and vegetables, even though either one alone was priced at $16. Combining them should not have incurred an extra charge.

Overall, a nice place. Nothing special about the ambience. Service was prompt and pleasant. It is somewhat overpriced.

We had a lovely date night, on a Wednesday. The food was the best Indian we have experienced in the area. We had the lentil soup and the lobster bisque to start. The flavors were outstanding. We also had the crispy potatoes, the chana, the chicken tikka masala and the chicken vindaloo. Everything was tasty. We even got a little treat on the house for our anniversary. The service was very friendly and helpful. The environment was peaceful and the decor was nice with the low lighting. Be ready to spend some money because it’s hard to decide on just one thing. Overall excellent experience. Will return and recommend to friends and family.

Kama Bistro didn’t impress me much on my last visit. Food this time was bland. We ordered Vindaloo curry & paneer makhani along with vegetable pulav.

We liked the space and loved the food, however, customer service must improve.
It was not that many people but servers were confused about who is doing what until we finally got greeted by the person who was our server after all and she did a great job.

Our waitress was very helpful in guiding us as to what to order. We did have some ideas already but she helped solidify them. 2 of our group had the Kamagritas cocktail and really liked it. Their wines and cocktails are very good in addition to their food and hospitality.

Very pushy waiters seemed as they were trying to push us out asap, kept trying to take our plates away while were not even half way finished with our food then started offering togo boxes not stop. We seemed not welcome at the restaurant. The food was really good on the other hand
