First, I must say that Indian cuisine is my husband and mine favorite. We seek out Indian restaurants wherever we travel. We have always been so happy to have Imlee near our house because we felt it was basically as good as any Indian we have had anywhere. I have no idea what has happened there. Seems to be the... More

I ate at Imlee last night by invitation not by choice. I stopped going there for years since the original owner sold the place. I have many friends from India an I am not only accustomed to home cooking Indian food but also to great Indian places in Chicago, New York and London. I remembered not liking the place much... More

My wife and I have eaten at many Indian restaurants and based on our experience, eating at Imlee now sits at the bottom of our list. As far as authentic Indian food, it totally missed the mark. My wife ordered curried chicken and I ordered vegetable korma. The food came much too fast, a red flag warning for anything that... More

My wife and I have been to Imlee a few times over the past few years as we like exotic flavors. A couple weeks ago we came back with another couple. We were seated promptly and greeted by the server. It appears they might have running short on their regular servers as some of them did not displayed expertise in... More

I have eaten at Imlee at least ten times but my last visit was the best meal yet. My husband and I like to try different things. We loved the cottage cheese tandoori and the chicken and lentils. We normally get the lamb, which is also excellent. I think that the reason that we liked it better on our latest... More

The service here is not stellar and the place is very small, but the food is delicious, authentic Indian. Make a reservation if you plan to go on weekends as they have very limited seating and they fill up early. They also do take-out which is good, but I still prefer the dining experience and the atmosphere of this little... More

Have been dining at Imlee for years. Sorry to see the decline in food quality and quantity and service; meanwhile the price of the lunch buffet has increased to $25. Lunch felt rushed and unwelcome and server was listless and uninterested in our party. Omitted several items from our order and disappeared for long periods of time. Owner (I believe)... More

I had seen positive reviews about Imlee and wanted to try it. I was in Pinecrest so went for lunch. First of all the restaurant is very small, it's impossible not to hear every other conversation going on in the room. If you can hear others that clearly you know they can hear you too. Secondly I take issue with... More

There are a few outside tables facing the parking lot and more seating inside, although it gets crowded. So reservations are a must. Naan with almonds and raisins was tasty but order was small- only 5 pieces. They charge for everything including papadum, (which most indian restaurants serve gratis along with several sauces. ) The fish appetizer, whole tandoori chicken,... More

I have been to this restaurant several times. I really enjoy your food, although a bit pricey I have recommended to many. But I am very disappointed in your billing practices. And can no longer recommend. Last time I was there I was brought the wrong entree, I was then told to keep the other and take home and was... More
