My wife and I dined here for the first time on Saturday night and were delighted with the whole experience. We had starters and main courses all of which we shared to allow both of us to sample a wider range of dishes and their flavours. Quite simply we thoroughly enjoyed everything! The menu is large with a wide range... More

Beautiful food, excellent service, in very pleasant surroundings. The Sunday buffet is great value for money, allowing you the opportunity to try something new. Well worth a trip out to Midlothian!

Ittihas is by far the best Indian restaurant I have ever experienced and I've been to a few in brick lane, London. The food is to a very high standard. All the staff are also very helpful and friendly.

Five of us went in for a meal on a Saturday night - after a recommendation from friends - and came away very impressed. Great selection on the menu (for starts / mains - not so much for desert). The food was delicious - well presented, hot, and arrived in good time. Will happily go again and recommend to all.
