About Imli

lmli™ (pronounced as /eem-lee/) is the Hindi word for Tamarind, a sour fruit grown in abundance in India. lmli™ is the brainchild of chef Nikhil Merchant along with LA based restaurateur Ashwini Jhaveri. 

We are excited to shake up what westernized "Indian Food" can be! Our mission is to bring consciousness and approachability through an interesting mix of regional Indian cuisines, from Northern India to Southern India and everywhere in between!
