We haven't eaten in the Itihaas but have ordered take away meals. We always order the set meal for 2. The food has been excellent in quality, variety, hot on arrival (bearing in mind, we live quite a distance away), and great value for money. The delivery driver was very friendly, and even though very busy (Saturday evening), stopped for... More

We use this restaurant at least once a week whether it be a carry out or sit in meal. We cannot rate the food high enough and the staffs attention to detail. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone as long as the restaurant doesn't get too busy which would mean we were unable to get a seat.

First time eating in this restaurant. Very good experience. Staff were polite, friendly and helpful. Didn't rush you nor did they take ages between courses. Food was excellent. Wide variety available. Nice ambiance. Relaxed. Would recommend.

We have visited Itihaas on numerous occasions and have yet to be let down. Really friendly atmosphere, great food and great service - what more can you ask for. Whether it is for a sit in meal or takeaway Itihaas won't disappoint.

Couldn't be bothered cooking last night so relied on Itihaas and they didn't disappoint I'm pleased to say. 4 of us cleaned up every crumb. Best curries for miles around. Thanks!

never fails to amaze me how good the place is, please go to itihaas instead of bombay lounge, the bombay lounge are rubbish, they pay people to do reviews but they're terrible, all the awards they've claimed to win, like scottish curry of the year was won by itihaas, forever itihaas
