Description: Itihaas is a stunning restaurant where contemporary meets traditional. No expense has been spared in achieving this, and as you step into this two million pounds restaurant, you will certainly see just that.

Downstairs, the Maharaja Suite which also seats 80 is luxurious with opulent mood lighting and decorated with more Indian treasures. To complete the real ambience, behind 300 year old Indian wooden doors is the Tiffin Room which seats 12, complete with a bar, library and your very own dedicated butler!Cuisine in this fine establishment is created by award winning chefs and staff who come from Indian Five-Star Hotel backgrounds. They have a single aim - to be able to deliver the authentic Royal Indian dining experience to its patrons with utmost courtesy and hospitality. The menu will take you on a culinary journey through the North of India with a couple of stops through Kenya and vibrant Mumbai.At this royal eatery, indulgence is paramount.

When travelling on your own it can be difficult to find places to eat alone without long waiting for the food. Here the food is well prepared and the serving was rapid and friendly.

Visited during fasting month. Waiters were very understanding that we were fasting and catered to us and made us feel as comfortable as possible. Food was great and the flavour was immense. Would love to visit again and definitely recommend

We chose Itihaas for a birthday celebration and we were not disappointed. Great food, great service and flexibility with one or two dietary restrictions. We were well looked after throughout the evening by Ajay and his team. They have also sorted out that awkward table area near the entrance so that it now feels just another part of the restaurant....

Went to itihaas last week I must say it was one of the worst meals we have ever had! The food was poor quality, cold and tasteless! I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The prices are extortionate. The staff could not even crack a smile. It was cold and smelt awful. The ladies toilets were disgusting!

First class meal for 14 of us. The food and service were faultless. Everyone commented on how good the meal and staff were. Excellent, may thanks.
