I came here with a friendI came here with a friend before a night out. We sampled the £19.95 "Taste of Imli" menu and it was great value. It's always difficult finding a good indian and my friend and I (both of us are Indian) found the food full of flavour and oil free which tends to be a common trait with Indian restaurants so this was a pleasent surprise! I'll definitely be coming back again with the Mrs!18/01/2013 16:00:00Lovely easy lunchHad one of the sharing platters which was really interesting and fresh. Would recommend. The restaurant was pretty quiet but then it was snowing outside!13/01/2013 16:00:00Good quality Indian FareAs a regular at Imli I am always pleased with the variety of their menu and value for money. The service can be a bit hit and miss but on the whole they do try to look after their customers well and provide really good quality Indian food - a welcome relief from the usual chicken tikka masalas etc.12/01/2013 00:00:00Great modern Indian foodWe took the 8 course tasting menu and had two people out of four with different dietary restrictions. They accommodated very well.08/01/2013 16:00:00Excellent food and good valueThe food is very authentic but has a fine-dining twist, with dishes being presented thoughtfully. Would definitely recommend02/01/2013 16:00:00Outstanding ServiceImli continues to impress. The quality of the food and the choices available are excellent, including some innovative dishes on the taster menu. The service has always been very good - this time despite the Christmas rush it excelled and was discreet but helpful. The ambience is functional rather than great but more than adequate for most purposes. Imli is particularly good value if you have a discount card from one of the restaurant clubs. We will happily go back again.20/12/2012 16:00:00Superb as alwaysWe attended in a small group for our Xmas do and had the festive set menu. The food was superb as usual, more than enough for the heartiest of appetites and very good value. The cocktails are always good and the service friendly and fast19/12/2012 16:00:00DeliciousGroup dinner hastily organised before Christmas but fully accommodating and highly delicious.19/12/2012 16:00:00Perfect for businessService was really good, friendly staff who were really helpful. Perfect place for business lunches as it wasn't too noisy or busy. Would highly recommend to anyone.18/12/2012 16:00:00Good as usualAnother good meal at Imli, had the Christmas menu. Portion sizes weren'tlarge, but as it was 8 courses it was enough. Restaurant was very busy, but so was most of Soho.18/12/2012 16:00:00Indian TapasThe idea of Indian Tapas was very intriguing, and they did not disappoint. A wide variety of dishes to choose from, and a great selection a vegetarian dishes too. Would recommend, and definitely return18/12/2012 00:00:00Imli never fails to deliveryImli never fails to delivery and exciting menus catering for vegetarian, fish-lovers and meat eaters alike. Very welcoming ion a winter's day with friendly and crisp service. Well worth a spontaneous lunchtime visit. Best to book if a group, otherwise drop in for lunches for two is easy. This week I introduced a vegetarian colleague who delighted in sampling the vegetarian platter, whilst I had to order my favourite tilapia fish and tarka dhal. Suggest trying the mango lassi as a wonderful accompaniment to quick luches. Rate Imli well every time - great value and tapas-style menu a sure favourite!04/12/2012 00:00:00Imli team Christmas lunch delight!Imli is one of my favourite restaurants in London & I decided to take my team here for lunch & it did not disappoint!!
There were 9 of us & we had the option of following a number of set menu or ordering a la carte! We did a mixture. The food was plentiful, filling, tasty, spicy & delicious.
The service is always fabulous here. Staff are attentive, helped take group photos for us. Patiently helped everyone with menu choices. We ended up keeping our table for 3 hours - not a problem.
Might be nice to have a few drink deals for large groups but otherwise they serve cocktails, beer, wine or spirits!!!
You must visit Imli!!04/12/2012 00:00:00Still serving great foodAlthough it doesn't have the same buzz as it did when it first opened, Imli still impresses with a wide range of tasty dishes all cooked perfectly. Fabulous spicing and options for those who don't like their food too hot. Great for dinner in the winter after a day of shopping or for a relaxed and fun night out with a group of friends. Cocktails are lovely, but can make the bill a bit of a shock if you get carried away. Food is very reasonably priced for the quality. I'll be going back30/11/2012 16:00:00Good, but had betterIt is nice in here but I found the menu quite thin. Had the grill platter which was lovely and asked them to do a madras strength sauce on the side as a dip! They did.
If you want your regular curry dishes, this is not the place to go. If you want something a little different, give it a try.28/11/2012 00:00:00Definately worth a visit...I dined here for lunch with a couple of friends using a Taste card (50% off total food bill). The service was very good and conscientious, the food was divine. Without the Taste card would have been fairly priced (not ridiculous but not cheap!) With the Taste card total bargain. Would definitely go again, even without the Taste card (I'd eat less in that case to save a few pounds!)24/11/2012 16:00:00Imli best Indian in SohoI eat at Imli regularly and it never disappoints. The service is exceptional. The tandoori paneer & broccoli was fabulous - definitely a new favourite for me. Drinks are a little pricey for me so we just stuck to one round of 2-4-1 cocktails. Brilliant location- this is my favourite London restaurant!05/10/2012 00:00:00Great start to an eveningThis was the second time we had been to Imli in London's Soho for a pre-theatre dinner. It is good value - though shrewdly pitched because it is very difficult to resist the temptation to add the odd little treat here and there. Choice was good - four dishes for the starter and four for the main course, including plenty of vegetarian options. Service was impeccable: helpful prompt and charming. And - as further evidence to the standard - the place was packed at 6.30pm02/08/2012 16:00:00Very good value for food,Very good value for food, portions were large and couldn't finish it all.21/07/2012 00:00:00Friendly service and veryFriendly service and very accommodating - menu is varied and caters well for both vegetarians and non-veggies. Would recommend this unusual tapas style indian restaurant to anyone who is unsure about Indian food as this is a great way to learn about the flavours. I'll be sure to return soon!22/06/2012 00:00:00Staff and food was amazing!I am not an Indian food lover, however wanted to use my TopTable points for a free meal and as TopTable had changed the way to redeem, it all got mixed-up. However, the staff remained extremely smiley and helpful, the manager came several times to ask if we were ok, offered to contact TopTable herself... our waiter was extremely nice as well, he helped us a lot choosing the dishes and the food was delicious! I would definitely go there again!21/05/2012 16:00:00We had a reward meal at Imli.We had a reward meal at Imli. Food and service was good and loved the fact that this restaurant does not treat 'reward' customers like second class citizens. They gave us a 'side' on the house and left us chatting when we had finished. Wine is a bit pricey but other than that a very enjoyable experience.15/05/2012 16:00:00Great as always! Had theirGreat as always! Had their pre-theatre dinner menu and loved it. This time I tried their sweet mango lassi and I absolutely loved it! We were also rushing when we got there and the staff were all very quick and responded to our requests. The staff were amazing and really quick!08/05/2012 16:00:00Imli in Soho was lively andImli in Soho was lively and the food was good. The beetroot chutney was great and all the starters were really fantastic. However, the chicken tikka masal was not so good. It wasn't just chicken breast, the portion was small and the sauce was just bad. However, everything else was good.07/05/2012 00:00:00Good food and service. LikeGood food and service. Like the sharing idea. The prawns were brilliant, fish not marinated enough and lamb, chicken and duck good.19/04/2012 16:00:00Visited Imli in Wardour StreetVisited Imli in Wardour Street for a great lunch. Imaginative Indian food presented beautifully in tapas portions, superbly cooked. Great atmosphere!10/04/2012 16:00:00Had a great lunch at ImliHad a great lunch at Imli with a friend. The food and service were both very good. I would recommend this restaurant to others, and it's likely that I would return there myself.09/04/2012 00:00:00I took my first ever rewardsI took my first ever rewards meal at Imli in Wardour Street. The staff were really welcoming and friendly and the atmosphere relaxed and buzzing at 6pm. I love indian food but often find huge dishes of curry overwhelming so the 'tapas' portions here are perfect, a good variety of tastes and textures and though it wasn't so much food that we had to leave lots as is often the case with indian, we were more than satisfied. A good choice of non-alcoholic drinks too so good for lunch/early evening.27/03/2012 00:00:00great service, and reallygreat service, and really good food. I asked for a little extra spice in my curry and arrived spot on. Good atmosphere from the start 5pm! small issues is iced water lacks ice, plate for food are cold and the dips with the popadoms are very small. get this right and your on to a winner!21/03/2012 00:00:00Imli is now one of only aImli is now one of only a relatively few restaurants to redeem points, hence the visit. So, not expecting much and the redemption menu did on the face of it seem a bit limited. However I needn't have worried as not only were the dishes ordered delicious but they were of ample proportions, and the restaurant also provided another free dish, + popadums, + they also provided desserts on the house (the redemption offer was supposedly limited to 2 courses)!
So, very satisfied - worth seeking out.20/03/2012 00:00:00good service. interestinggood service. interesting concept - indian tapas (so portions are not big). but i cant say i was blown away by the food. it was ok.11/03/2012 17:00:00Imli Restaurant in WardourImli Restaurant in Wardour St is a great venue for a lunchtime meal. The service was excellent and tapas menue a tasty and different way of eating Indian food which can be overwhelming in quantity.28/02/2012 16:00:00As soon as we turned up atAs soon as we turned up at Imli in London's Soho we were told that we hadn't specifically asked for a toptable special deal but we had several options. We chose a two for one offer for the tasting menu. Food was several cuts above the normal High Street Indian restaurant; delicious and unusual starters with subtle flvours and relatively mild spicing; conventional main dishes including minced lam, aubergines and a tender fish curry; finally a sumptuous dessert.23/02/2012 16:00:00We had the awards menu atWe had the awards menu at Imli in Soho. Starters were really lovely, we had the two veggie options. The mains, the paneer was good, but the other dish (creamy mushroom) was full of sweetcorn which is a bit of a turn of in a curry as far as I am concerned! We were given a third dish which was a nice surprise and this was much better, full of "proper" vegetables! Ice cream was a nice touch to finish. Service was friendly and attentive. Drinks a tad expensive, but most wines had 500ml carafe option22/02/2012 00:00:00Had gone there for Valentine'sHad gone there for Valentine's Day dinner with my husband. We both loved the food and the variety of dishes available.

We both opted for the starter of spicy potato cakes which were delicious and for mains selected the lamb and chicken dishes. The lamb dish was similar to chilli con carne and was pleasant, the Chicken Tikka Masala however was completely bland and didn't appear to even be breast meat. We couldn't fault the service however which was friendly and extremely efficient, thank you to all the staff for such lovely service.07/02/2012 16:00:00Imli restaurant in Soho,London,hasImli restaurant in Soho,London,has very tasty dishes but does give small portions..

Lots of smaller portions (and some not so small!) @ very reasonable prices which are even better with the TT offer. The quality of the food seems to get better each time we've visited over the last few years & there's a great ambience - it usually looks busy when we walk past and is obviously very popular.02/01/2012 16:00:00
