Unlike other recent reviewers my friends and I had a fantastic experience here last Friday! I had a Groupon which saved us a good bit on the Bill. Service was excellent from start to finish especially Jay who greeted us quickly and oversaw the whole experience. I was with two pescatarians (vegetarians who eat fish) so we has these delicious...

When I first went to Imlee one and a half year back, I was very happy because I found atleast a good Indian restaurant near my home. All other restaurants are quite far. After that I have gone there 3-4 times and each time my experience is getting worse. Food quality has decreased so much from the first time I... More

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
