We visited Imlees for the first time last Friday evening and first impressions were very positive - we were warmly greeted and seated at a nice table in the window from where we could view the comings and goings of Moseley Village. There was quite a buzz about the place with hardly a spare table in sight on the ground floor and a private party being catered for on the first floor. The full restaurant led to an acceptable delay between taking our order and delivering the food but since it is a BYO establishment, it meant that we could pass the time consuming our own wine without incurring additional cost! The ground floor nicely decorated in a modern style but despite the bright lighting, a couple of us still experienced some difficulty reading the menu with a 6 point sized typeface!
Popadoms are a tad expensive at 75p each but we all agreed that they were top notch, as were the accompanying pickles. To start I chose the lamb chops and what a good choice they turned out to be - at first I thought they had delivered a main course but was assured that 4 chops is a normal starter. They were delicious. My wife had Tandoori Salmon which was again adjudged to be excellent and our friends shared a Lassan Chicken which by contrast to mine was a rather small portion but was equally high quality.
We shared Murgh Massallam and Chicken Bhuna (both ordered Madras hot) and together with a mushroom rice and a chillie naan it made for a very satisfying and enjoyable combination. I can't recall what our friends consumed but both of them thought the food was first class.
We are so spoilt for choice of high quality Asian restaurants but will certainly add Imlees onto our list for regular future visits. Keep up the good work.
