We travelled from Edinburgh especially to try the food here. We were not disappointed, it was lovely. We will definitely try again and will probably sit in next time.

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.
