Great location at the heart of Soho. Contemporary decor, great atmosphere and friendly staff who make you feel like guests. Good portion sizes, a little pricy however worth it considering taste, presentation, location etc... Not very traditional Indian food, more gourmet but we weren't disappointed! Would visit again.

Went with a group and food was excellent. Service good too. Go for the lamb chops and kebabs. They do a mean mojito.

Went with two friends for a quick meal on a mid week evening night and place was still pretty busy (always a good sign). Food was great as was the service and the only reason it did not get 5/5 is that the menu is fairly limited. Very good though

From the starters to the deserts, this place has got it all. Delicious combinations of spices and sauces, succulent meats, just the right amount of "hot" with interesting mix of herbs and spices. I had the Lamb Shank would definitely recommend this. Naans were great, chicken dishes amazing.

I am a little critical with this one. Was here for lunch in this really stylish restaurant and used their 2-course set menu deal. Not many people were in this huge venue for lunch - I counted 7. The quality of the food was was good, the service nice - but I expected better flavored and finished food, so my... More

I've eaten at many Indian restaurants but this is one of a kind! The food was incredibly tasty! I had samosa chaat for starters. Immaculately presented and tasted even better than it looked. Same for the Goan sea bass. I can't wait to come here again... In fact I've booked it again in 3 days time. Can't wait!

This is one of the nicest Indian restaurants we have been to. The decor is unpretentious, and the Indian street food is just great. It is different than most Indian restaurants beginning with the starters. Would definitely return.

Our group of six had been on the road across Ireland and England for two weeks and we were tired of the same old thing, so when we arrived in London we needed a change, an Indian fix. Found Imli St. On Open Table and it was in our neighborhood. What a great find it was. The neighborhood is so... More

We managed to come to London every two years from Canada. During our last 3 visits we've come to this restaurant in Soho. We have good Indian food in Vancouver, but there's more choice in London. What we really like is that the plates are perfect for sharing, so we order a few of them and each one of use... More

Food was very good quality and setting was nice, if a little dark. Portions a little small. Service good and attentive and crispy squid was delicious.

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
