My wife and I eat here every week. Imli is the best Indian restaurant in the area, and we have tried them all. Nice place, lovely people and excellent food. Give them a try, you will Love it!!

“Ignore the 1 star comments”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We don't know what is wrong with the people who gave 1 star comments, this place is fantastic.
The food is the best Indian food we've ever had and the place itself is lovely. The staff are pleasant and the owners really care about their customers.

Cannot recommend highly enough, beautiful food, nice staff. Best Indian in St Annes and Blackpool area

“Highly recommended!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Visited yesterday evening for the fourth time since it opened - all various days, times, with large groups of friends & family and last night just us and our two young children! On every occasion I cannot fault the service, welcome, choice, food quality and value for money. The owner and his wife are fantastic hosts......no overbearing pushy staff as with other Indians nearby, and a much nicer ambience too. By 7.30 the place was understandably packed last night. We've Booked again for a family celebration next week and I've no doubt it will be just as good.

“fab fab fab”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

We were a table for five enjoying a meal at this restaurant and the food, service and ambiance was just perfect. We were not hounded to buy lots of drinks in fact we had to ask for drinks if and when we wanted them. The food was hot and full of exotic flavours and was reasonably priced.

We were given 2 rounds of complimentary Baileys and after eight mints, after our meal and when I spilt mine, another was promptly brought over to me. I would highly recommend this restaurant

“Enjoyable evening”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

The two previous reviews are a little harsh.
Yes, this restaurant has had a few ownership changes but now it seems to be on the right track.
Went along with a group of five.
For a Tuesday night there were a fair number of people in.
Service was friendly and relaxed. Yes, it could be seen as a little slow but also at least you don't feel rushed or pressured to hurry along.
We were not aware of any deals and ordered off the regular menu.
All five people throuroughly enjoyed a three course meal with no complaints about anything.
I will certainly give it another visit and recommend others to give it a try.
