Part of the Tamarind Collection, Imli Street serves a unique menu inspired by Indian street food. Set right in the heart of Soho, one of London’s most bustling areas, the restaurant offers a relaxed but refined urban space, complete with a stylish bar which serves signature cocktails.

The all-day Imli menu features a range of small dishes from across the diverse regions of India, as well as a take on railway cuisine. Highlights include North Indian style lamb meatballs in cinnamon & cardamom sauce, ‘puri bhaji’ – potato curry served with traditional deep-fried puffed bread, and ‘dakshin yera’ – tiger prawns tossed with browned onions, tomato, ginger & peppercorns.

For dessert, try the moreish ‘gulab jamun’ – warm milk dumplings with crushed pistachios and cardamom syrup, or the ‘aam ras’, consisting of mango soup, coconut ice cream & basil sago. In a modern space with exposed brick walls, raw wood & subtle lighting, Imli also serves a combination of international breakfast dishes with an Indian twist.

Imli Street in Soho is a short walk from Piccadilly Circus & Leicester Square Tube stations.

    Had pre-theatre menu - excellent value for money

  • ((((( by from Ilminster

    We dined at 1.30pm on a Friday and the restaurant was busy but calm. The food is absolutely wonderful. Certainly amongst the very best Indian food that I have ever eaten in over 40 years! It is beautifully spiced and tastes more authentic than most other Indian restaurants I have tried. The platters are excellent value for money and give you,an opportunity to try small portions of 6 different dishes. The staff are very friendly and chatty and are willing to explain every dish on the menu if required. This is first class dining experience - do not miss!

    We dined in the evening. Imli was easy to locate and immediately welcoming when we arrived. Staff were helpful in advice regarding the menu. This style of dining enables you to try something different and each dish was very tasty. The carafe of rose wine was very acceptable and complimented the food. We finished with sorbet and ice cream which again were different and delicious. We came away extremely pleased with our choice and would definately return on our next visit to London.

    Dined at lunch, chose a tapas-style platter which was very reasonably priced, so much so that we thought the portions would be tiny, but not the case at all. Lots of little dishes filled with flavour, all presented very cleanly. Cocktails are a must, even the non-alcoholic ones! Service was efficient but still really friendly. This is definitely one of my favourite restaurants in London, really don't know why this place has any negative reviews!
