An outstanding dining experience.
An outstanding dining experience. Especially delightful finding a live sitar player with beautifully intergrated background music on a recent sunday evening visit. IF you are an afficiando of Indian cuisine, you will be more than pleased...wide variety....spices of extraordinary texture....curries, lamb,chicken beef, and a mushroom dish par excellence.
If you are NOT an INDIAN cuisine afficianado.......let the knowledgable staff guide you.
We recommend IM LEE and will continue to be regular diners there.

This place is great! The food
This place is great! The food is amazing. We've been here many times and the services is always excellent. This time they sat us on a corner table so we had a hard time getting the attention of the waiter but they were pretty busy.
Overall, this is the best Indian restaurant we've tried in Miami.

Goa Fish Curry is a Must!
From the first aromatic breaths to the last succulent bite of the seabass in curry, the Goa Fish Curry is an outstanding must dish. Well balanced, extremely flavorful, very unique. Another fine dinning experience at Imlee!

The food is always amazing,
The food is always amazing, the service on the other hand is not so much. The waitress was terrible. The restaurant is relatively small but it gets busy on the weekends, everyone recommends making reservations. Why the restaurant won't hire more staff for the weekend is beyond me. The waitress was rude and short while taking our orders, we saw her maybe three times throughout the entire dining experience. She would constantly pass by the table but not acknowledge us. When we finally got her attention to bring us our check, she never did and we had to end up asking the amazing busser for it. That 'amazing' wasn't sarcastic, he was the only person giving good customer service in the entire restaurant.

We've visited this restaurant
We've visited this restaurant several times and we love the food. My husband is British and has especially enjoyed finding authentic Indian cuisine close to our home as he had to go a long time without it. The portions are large, the food is tasty and the atmosphere is comfortable. They customize the spiciness of the dishes and they do offer papadam to munch on while you wait. Service is slow. Generally two waiters on staff for 10-12 tables, but a steady stream of take-out customers seems to contribute to the delays.
Overall we like it and will go back -- we recommend, but be prepared for a little bit of a drawn-out dining experience.

The service was excellent.
The service was excellent. The electronic music was a bit too loud and not pertaining to the restaurant ambience. We felt it was too dark. The food was to pungent, spicy and the prices were extremely high. We had asked for no hot spice food for 2 people but
that did not work.

I was impressed, food was yummy, tons of flavor. We were first served this flat bread with 3 great sauces to start. The Entrees were nice portions and just very good. I've had Indian food in London and this is just as good. The place is small which is good and bad, but nice and cozy.

Always reliable, Imlee never
Always reliable, Imlee never disappoints. If you love Indian, and even if it is new to you, Imlee is a hidden gem. One hint - make reservations.

Arbitrability enjoy Indian food, and I have dined at Indian restaurants throughout Florida and Central Florida. Emily is clearly amongst the very best. Food is first
Quite tasty. I have never been disappointed. I have never left feeling anything other than completely satisfied. Anywhere close this neighborhood gem is certainly worth a visit.

We always enjoy our dining experience at Imlee. It is so nice that such a good Indian restaurant is close to home. Our granddaughter is a fan of Indian food, and introduced us to it at Imlee. We are sold. Thank you for giving us a place close to home where we can enjoy something unique yet delicious with our granddaughter. The service is impeccable....and the feeling is warm and cozy....very friendly!

Girls night out
A group of 4 went to celebrate a birthday. All tastes were represented - vegetarian, non-meat eaters, and those that will eat just about anything. Heat levels were explained and the food came as ordered with no surprises. Everything was excellent and enjoyable. Highly recommend this place for Indian food...best so far in Miami, and comparable to eating at my friends house when she and her (Indian) husband cook dinner!

Hello Indian food
After living in places where there was a lot of Indian restaurants we were sad not to find a good Indian food restaurant here in Miami until now!!
Imlee was a breath of fresh air. The food was wonderful, the restaurant was very cute I would say a little romantic prices were moderate we will be going there once a week!
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Imlee has great food. I've tried five different Indian restaurants in town and this is in the top two. The menu has a wide variety of choices, and you can pick how spicy you want your dishes to be.

Dinner was off the hook. Food was awesome. We tried many dishes, one better than the other. Service was a bit slow. But overall will definitely be returning.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a repeat visit for me and was surprised with the level of taste I encountered in every dish ordered.
Foods were cooked with exquisite spices which brought a higher level of taste that I'm not accustomed to find in Indian restaurants
By far my best Indian dining experience in South Miami, highly recommend you give it a try.

It would be nice to have Indian servers instead of Cubans. The latter decrease the ambience of a truly Indian restaurant.
It is a pricey place
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
It was delicious as always,looking forward to more deliciousness,the service was excellent as well

Food was great
Food was great! Very nicely decorated. The waiter and all staff (but 1 ) was very attentive to our needs. I provided a 5 star rating for service anyway because was not going to allow one bad apple ruin what the others obviously work so hard for. Hopefully this is not ongoing issue..
One negative that i could not give overall 5 rating for is the size of the restaurant is a bit small and you feel a bit crowded. The tables are a bit too close to each other especially tables for 2. Difficult to have a private conversation and made us a bit uncomfortable.
I am a local and plan to return often and hopefully get better seating.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Imlee has excellent Indian food. I had the chicken Korma, and it was terrific. The only downside is the service is slow, however, the servers are friendly, and the over all experience is outstanding.

Gem in Pinecrest
So this was my second time at this restaurant and once again they exceeded my expectations. The food here is amazing. My boyfriend is a very finicky eater, he just does not like very many foods, and he loved it. From the appetizer to the dessert, you'll never be disappointed. But make sure you make reservation because this restaurant is the size of your living room and it may be hard to get a chair on a Friday or Saturday night.

The Best from Imlee to Key Largo
Imlee is the highest rated restaurant - of any kind - between the restaurant and Key Largo, Florida. That's a 45-mile food desert. We live in Key Largo, and it takes us 50-60 minutes, depending on traffic, to get to Imlee. Imlee, in the South End of Miami, is the first excellent restaurant that we can find on our way north, and it is worth the time and gasoline that it takes to get there. Imlee's authentic Indian dishes range from mild to very spicy, as you request, and they even have a tandoori oven for those who love that spicy red-sauced chicken. (I also believe that I have filled out this form in the recent past.)

Best Indian food in Miami
We have had Indian food in London , New York and various places in Miami. This was the best we have ever had The service was great and very helpful. We had a chicken special and a vegetarian special with the freshest non we have ever had. The owner recommended the plain non to counter the spicy dishes we had which was a good recommendation. He also recommended the lamb chop appetizer which is amazing and a must have.

First Time at Imlee
I saw " Check Please" on TV where they reviewed Imlee and the review was so good I wanted to eat there. My party of 4 all ordered different dishes so we could share. All the food was delicious. The only negative was after we finished eating nobody came to clear the table until after we were tired of waiting we got someone to come over. It was as if we were invisible. Also getting the check took a long time.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We've been here a handful of times and everytime is just as great as the one before. The food is consistently delicious! I will continue visiting this establishment. The waiters are friendly, especially the Cuban guy.
