I admit, it has been a while since I've eaten at Imlee. It's a very small restaurant, but the service is good and the food is awesome.

The place has closed. There is an eviction notice pasted on the window. Too bad; it was a nice place.

Lunch during the week is a great value. It does not matter what you get in the menu, in my opinion everything is very tasty. Perfect place to go on a date at dinner time and or with another couple of friends. Great wine selection.

Very good samosas, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Chicken Korma but the highlight was the Mango Lassi drink (made with Alphonso mangoes and homemade natural yogurt) and the beautiful collection of artwork from Jaipur on the walls.... Imlee or Imli means Tamarind in Hindi and the Tamarind sauce for the samosas was very good...

We chanced upon "Imlee" while on our way to Key West... my cousin found it on via an online search and tired as we were, this was where we decided to have dinner... the place looks humble from outside, though that is never an issue with us! The surprise was in the menu... the prices were out of the world!... More

Went here with family. (4 people). 2 of us ordered a-la-carte items and 2 took the buffet. My review of the items ordered: - the garlic naan was excellent - the vegetable dishes were well prepared, especially the bhindi (Okra) - the regular naan was below par, and burnt in some places - the dessert (Mango Kulfi) was disappointing as...

Excellent authentic Indian food. Portions are very generous; I would recommend sharing. Appetizers very generous too! The service was excellent. Ricky our server was amazing!Although there were only two waiters they were extremely attentive. We will definitely come back. Best Indian food we have had in Miami

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
