Imlee Indian Bistro

We had the buffet, which is served by the waiter. Wonderful food. Deliciously seasoned, not spicy. The service was great too! We'll go back for sure.

My wife and I love Indian food. We came here because we tried to get into Sea Siam, across parking lot, but it was full. The house wine was good. We were served a very nice papadum, a crispy bread, We asked for it twice as we liked it so much. I ordered lamb chops in a curry sauce. The... More

Giving 2 stars as people ignore 5 or 1 star reviews when they pick a restaurant. The food did not taste indian at all. Chicken curry was worst. Even packaged food tastes better... For the price we were paying i expected it to be element and tasty.... Save your $ and do not eat here.

I had not been here for about six months - it was surprisingly empty on a Wednesday night but I assume everyone is busy Christmas shopping. Only our party of four and two other tables and it used to be packed all the time, even on weeknights. Service was great (something that had gone downhill before) and other than some... More

Unfortunately, I had to rate this place poorly. Had I rated this place a few months ago, I would have given it 4 stars. However, I think the cook has changed and the food is just not as good. Barely get chicken in the chicken makni (which use it be amazing), and it is very liquidy and taste it just... More

My last review of Imlee was how disappointed I was in one of our favorite Indian restaurants anywhere. It had always been as good or better than any other Indian restaurant we had tried -- and we tried it everywhere we travel. We couldn't give up on it so we tried it again and most of the prior complaints were... More

When you are traveling in a far away land, you are a vegetarian & looking for some good native food. And you find a restaurant like this, you feel great where you can not only find Tandoori roti but Tawa roti as well. We had delicious food there.

The dishes are unbeatable and the selection is quite varied, seemingly authentic. Service is always impeccable!
