One of the best Indian Restaurants anywhere, not just in Midlothian

Our friends from around the world praise their food when visiting, either as eat-in or as a take-away for a gathering at home. They usually say the food is as good if not better than any they have tasted, wherever they come from.

I have been to this restaurant on quite a few occasions. This time I ordered the assorted tandoori, both the menu I have and the online menu state that king prawn is included in this. My takeaway meal did not have this, when I phoned I was told it's not included anymore, I was not told this beforehand and it's... More

Decent takeaway menu, with lots of choice for meat-eaters and vegetarians. Food usually high standard. Can be slow to deliver in busy periods, so best to collect if possible. Restaurant also good.

Had many takeaways from this Dalkeith establishment, but this was our first visit. For starters, the missus had chicken samosa, and I had a tasty and spicy haggis pakora. Main were: lamb bhuna for me with pilau rice and a side of bombay potato, the wife had chicken bhuna. Both were excellent. Service fine, ambience ok, but I thought it... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times and it never lets us down . We usually choose from the lunchtime menu which is great ,but decided to try the thali this time. Wonderful value. Restaurant is spotless and staff are always welcoming and friendly. If you are shopping in Dalkeith this place is a great lunchtime treat .

The food is fantastic and the service excellent. Food freshly prepared and served beautifully. We were welcomed and allowed to choose where we wanted to sit. The menus were brought to us immediately, but we were not hurried to make a decision about our choices until we were ready. The service is immaculate. You can not fault the team of... More

Decided to try Itihaas as I usually go to the Bombay Lounge. Same type of banquet as the Bombay but I felt Itihaas were a bit more superior in their menu choices and they also gave two rice portions and two naan breads whereas Bombay had one between two. Nice restaurant with nice decor. I prefered the bombay lounge's lay... More
