                                                We came back after a few years. The food and service is good, but, it was a very expensive meal for what we ordered. Unfortunately there is a bad sewer smell in the hallway to the restrooms, and that is not a good way to start a fancy meal, since it’s right by the kitchen too. It lost its magic.

                                                My husband and I went to Kama Bistro for our anniversary. It was our first time there. We were so incredibly impressed with everything! From the tandoori lambchops, to the okra, to the tikka masala, to just everything. Our server, Agnes, was so very kind, professional and made us feel special, like family. All of the people who worked there were very accommodating. It was a very pleasant and easy atmosphere. The decor is beautiful. The parking is easy. There is nothing more to say other than, this is a fantastic spot!

                                                We went to Mother's Day Brunch at Kama Bistro. My daughter and I wanted something completely different than the traditional American pancakes and sliced ham buffet. We're glad we went to KB. Neither of us knew much about Indian food. It was a little confusing. Appetizers, salad, American waffles and a few desserts were laid out on a buffet table. We had some tastes of these and then we sat down at our table. The waitress brought us a sample--3 tacos that were delicious. One was stuffed with lamb, another with a breadfruit and tamarind sauce (my favorite) and the last I think was a spicy chicken. After drinking and munching tacos, we were then served small platers of typical Indian dishes of chicken, fish, lamb, vegetables, rice, and naan. All of the dishes were delicious. If you wanted more of a dish, they brought it to you. The sauces were unbelievable. So why did I rate it with 4 stars instead of 5? While we loved the entrees, we didn't care for the desserts or drinks (non-alcoholic) nor appetizers. We're Hispanic and tacos just don't fit very well in an Indian cuisine. None the less, my daughter and I enjoyed the novelty of Indian cuisine on Mother's Day. It was a good choice!

                                                Food was too bland. As an example, Baigan Bharata did not have smoky oven smell or taste

                                                Outstanding food-our server Daisy help navigate the menu and offered great explanations. Great use of repurposed wood in the south dining room. Concrete floor and 25 foot ceilings made the room echoey.

                                                Could not love Kama any more than I do. We usually get delivery but dined in the restaurant. The food was even better, and the cocktails were also excellent. Best Indian food around! We had chili potatoes and samosas, tikka masala, roganjosh and lamb grilled. Just perfect.

                                                The appetizers are very good. The main course was decent, could have been more spicy. The Pulav is good. The bindi was little salty. Overall a very good experience.

                                                Amazing Indian dishes!! So many options of protein and off the charts flavors…… and the cocktails are next level!! Unlike many Indian restaurants the food/sauces are not greasy at all. Dark ambience and warm lighting… great for a date night with amazing drinks and unparalleled Indian food!

                                                All the positive reviews you read are correct - this place is amazing. I can probably count on one hand the number of times everything, and I mean everything, in a restaurant visit is perfect. From the greeting to the goodbyes, and everything in between. Perfect. Food - excellent. Service - top notch. Ambience - great. I have nothing but the highest praise for this establishment. Well done, Kama Bistro!

                                                Easy to make a reservation & seated immediately. Our server was responsive but not intrusive. We ordered samosas, okras, chicken tikka masala and stuffed naan all medium spice/heat. Rice was included which is a bonus. Everything arrived warm, fresh tasting & delicious. The bistro was filled but we were not seated to close to another table. Also a pleasant aroma to the restaurant. We were pleased with our experience.
