Charm, courtesy and respect was shown to us as we were soon shown to a table and arrangements made to extend the set meal to serve three. The... read more

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions and usually have a lovely meal. Staff are great and the restaurant has a relaxing atmosphere. I've been at a few Indian restaurants and enjoyed a prawn and spinach curry so decided to try it at this restaurant. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy it and thought it was quite tasteless but that was...

We love ittihaas, as do our 9 year old twins, they think it is the best restaurant in the world. The food is always fresh and tasty, the service impeccable, and the price reasonable. Would thoroughly recommend.

Excellent flavoursome and expertly cooked food. It's like a warm curry hug with a big smacker of a tasty curry kiss. Beautifully presented and top notch service. It doesn't get than this folks.

We use Itihaas all the time. There are other Indian restaurants in the area that we have tried but we always come back to Itihaas. On this occasion it was for my daughter's birthday. She loves the place every bit as much as we do. Service is second to none and the food cannot be beaten locally. Matin, Abbas &... More

Ate here lots of times and I'm fond of the staff and the place in general. Always been impressed with the food and been satisfied until the last couple of times where the quality of food and portion size especially was very poor in comparison to the price. Maybe the lack of competition is making the guys too complacent? I'll... More

My husband and I eat here at least once a month, the food is fantastic and the service also. I would highly recommend for takeaway as well as romantic or family night out.
