The "Traffic Light" (NT$250) was set on the table; three separate shots—one tequila, one tomato juice, one lemon. By the time the intriguing taste had put a smile on my face, the surroundings were also working their wind-down magic. The name Kama conjures images of Indian exoticism and, with Indian-style art and serene Buddha statues watching over the entire scene, that image isn't too far from reality here.
Kama is whatever you want it to be. Find a corner where restful lighting casts the shadows of beaded curtains across beautifully patterned cushions and chill with a bottle of wine from the large, worldwide selection. Or get lively at the bar with friends and explore the Kama cocktails and shots selection. In a group, why not reserve a table downstairs (NT$2,000-6,000), enjoy its romantic and quirky atmosphere. Most drinks come by the bottle, though prices for by-the-glass spirits are around NT$250 to NT$300. A selection of bottled beers, whiskeys (single malt) and sakes are also available.

A night out at Kama won't leave you hungry, either. A selection of snacks is offered, including the most popular, tender, perfectly-spiced bites of Cumin Beef (NT$580). A thumbs-up also goes to the tasty Sauteed Mushrooms, served with shrimp (NT$320). A few new dishes are available now, recommended by Manager Kenny, which include Rosemary Pork Chops (NT$300) and Marinated Cold Oysters (NT$250). They are definitely worth trying.

The music is mellow early in the week, with a mix of jazz, reggae, bossonova and house. On Wednesdays, it picks up with foreign DJs, and there's a selection of '80s music on Saturdays. Also look out for special evenings and parties.
Open for nearly four years now, Kama is certainly one lounge bar in Taipei that's destined to stay.

Alcoholic driks are strictly prohibited for those under 18.
