“Great Indian with food with a real vibe in the heart of Soho” earns plaudits for this offshoot of Mayfair’s upscale Tamarind, albeit at more “mid-level prices”. The pedigree shows, though, in its “complex spices and luxurious setting”.

On the big Soho site of Imli Street (RIP), this “semi-casual” spin-off from posh Mayfair Indian, Tamarind, lives up to its parent’s stylish looks. On limited early reports, one diner had a couple of mixed trips, but all other feedback is upbeat about the cooking’s “sophisticated Asian flavours”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
