18 of us met at Imli's tonight for an office Christmas party. We were shown upstairs, to be greeted by a drunken raucous and very noisy table of men being entertained by a half naked lap dancer. 15 minutes of cheering and table banging followed, not a great start. The food was very average at best, and terrible at worst. Bright red chicken tikka masala, a chicken spinach dish wherein vegetable clearly had been frozen, mounds of rice that was not freshly cooked. Most dishes were heavy on sauce and light on meat, and portions were very small for the price. I ate better last week at my local takeaway.
The total bill came to much more than we expected, about £30 a head, though this did include quite a few drinks. on checking the bill we realised we had been overcharged by about £63 for items listed twice on the bill. This was immediately changed, thanks to an alert member of our party, but others might not have noticed.
It was a very busy evening, in the run up to Christmas, but the food we ate was not good, and the atmosphere and service not up to standard. I will not be returning.
