Although we don't live locally we drive 30 mins round trip for takeaways at Itihaas at least twice a month and go to the restaurant regularly. Food is superb. Excellent quality and good portions. Restaurant is very nice. Linen tablecloths and good service. Beats edinburgh indian restaurants hands down and we have tried lots of them!

Had heard great things about Itihaas and it lived up to its expectations. Really friendly staff as well. The food was tremendous and 3 courses for £12 you can't beat it. Will be back soon!

The food was delicously fresh and presented well. The waiters were attentive but not over bearing and the owner took the time to engage us with details of his dishes. Will definetly... More

The food is always delicious, the service impeccable and the restaurant spotlessly clean. Matin runs a tight ship and the numerous awards simply back this up. A gem in Dalkeith!
