Have eaten in the new Imli twice. It's wonderful! We went last Saturday, the restaurant was really full and there was a fantastic atmosphere, a real buzz. This restaurant feels like a real "destination" now. You can pop in for a quick curry, or, like everyone else on Saturday, dress to impress and... read more

I was introduced to this restaurant by friends, was so impressed by the standard of food , I went back the following week, we had imli chicken and asked for lamb and prawn to be added, absolutely perfect, my best indian meal ever. Staff were very welcoming and paid attention to detail, very smartly dressed as well.

Cafe Monsoon is now trading as IMLI. I have been disappointed by many different Indian restaurants in recent years, however this restaurant is an absolute gem! Not only is the food freshly prepared, flavoursome, and presented excellently, but the service and friendliness of staff is phenomenal. The only drawback is that it is out of the way, so you would...

This restaurant is just perfect! Beautifully decorated and very welcoming. The staff are wonderfully attentive but at the same time discrete. The menu has both the usual and more adventurous suggestions. The new owners are to be congratulated!
