Service? What's that?

I don't think the food is as bad as some of the reviews indicate. In fact, some of the dishes, such as the lentil soup and tandoori chicken, are quite good. What is awful, just awful, is the service. If you live in the area and want Indian food, save yourself a lot of grief and just order take out.

I have only been here for dinner before but I happened to be in the neighborhood with a friend and was able to visit for lunch today. I was under the impression that the lunch buffet was around $15-$20 per person but it has actually gone up to $25 a head which is pricey for lunch. The waiter Ricky was... More

Once my absolute favorite restaurant in Miami-Dade County. My last two visits were a dig disappointment. The food was grossly overvalued and WHY would anyone depend on salt to flavor Indian food I'll never know??? The quality of the lunch buffet at your table has also declined. My last meal there was actually quite dry. The outstanding quality of food... More

Been coming here for many years. We had a terrible experience. The service was horrific. Granted the waiter was alone, he was kind and smiling the whole time but literally threw our cutlery on the table, not even bothering to put the proper quantities. We were in no particular hurry maybe he was ready to go home. Cutlery was dirty... More

I am a local and I love the food here but the service is so hit or miss, I can't make up my mind whether to keep coming here or not! Last visit it was better - this time awful again. First of all they had NO white wine available, only red! So I don't normally drink beer but I... More

I live nearby and have reviewed this restaurant before. Last time it was bad, but this time it was terrible: Awfully slow service and then, when it finally arrived, mediocre food. In addition it was very, very expensive for what it was. Seriously, what is the problem? Get good chefs, organize the supply chain from the kitchen to the table,... More

I am so happy to give Imlee a very positive review. What always was an excellent Indian restaurant had a very rocky time for a while but our recent dinner there was just as good as it always was in the past -- as good as Indian restaurants I have eaten at in many parts of the world! From the... More

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.
