Very nice place for a meal but I was not blown away with the food. I have had better elsewhere. Service could not be faulted but not value for money in my opinion.

After a trip to nearby Straiton retail park with my family we decided upon having a family meal. We thought we would have to travel into Edinburgh city centre so as to taste high quality food and first class service however we were evidently wrong in thinking so. It was decided that we should attend Itihaas in Dalkeith for our... More

We ordered our food on recommendation and the lamb and chicken dish we had was tender, succulent and very tasty. If you love your Indian food with a... More

I had a real pleasure to eat at Itihaas last night and it was delicious. I am not too keen on very spicy food so I asked recommendations and followed them. I got special chicken for a starter (not in the menu, just for me! - how nice:) with onion and vegetables and it was just stunning and then we... More

This was our second visit. The service and food were fantastic. Jugs of iced water appeared without us asking for them. The decor is simple and stylish. The staff very friendly and knowledgeable. Everything was cooked to perfection. There is a wide and varied choice of food. We went with friends and they also loved it. We will definitely be... More

Our family love this restaurant! My husband and I have been coming with our two boys for the past six years. It doesn't matter if its lunch, evening dinner or the sunday buffet we have found it consistently good. The staff are exceptional and have always made our visit most welcoming.
