I’ve eaten here a lot but never left a review. Definitely best curry I’ve ever had. Their speciality dishes are brilliant but they also do all the regular curry dishes. Sunday they have a buffet which is also well worth going to. Definitely worth a visit. Their takeaways are just as good and the... read more

Only recently became a fan of Indian food when brought here for date night. The Indian tapas menu was brillant, so much to choose from even for vegetarians such as myself. The rice with the butter was gorgeous. Shame we couldnt make it to dessert! The staff were also brill! Well done guys.

We love Indian food and our B&B host informed us that this restaurant has lovely food. Was our host right!! It was a weekday when we went, so not very busy. We were able to walk in and secure a table. Our food came quick, the staff were attentive without being overbearing and the dishes were really really good. I... More

Fantastic meal here tonight - friendly attentive staff. Lovely food, good portion sizes. Perhaps the only criticism was that the service was a little slow at times however the restaurant was very busy and it was a Friday night so this wasn't a major issue. Very enjoyable, will be back soon!

Totally mind blowing how good are they at Itihaas, from the service to the food to the owner the whole package is a gourmet experience you must try. I will be back again and again, rumour has it they have a sister restaurant in nearby Loanhead and up and coming in Bonnyrigg.

Went with a friend for dinner and this was my first visit to Itihaas and I was not disappointed. The service was friendly and the decor very stylish. The food was delicious with lots of choice. Highly recommend this place for a visit, during the week is quiet but romantic where I could see the weekends being busy with groups... More

I have been going to Itihaas for some time now and have never written a review considering how much times i eat there. So...Staff are welcoming, they remember you from previous visits, know what drink you prefer, ask you if you would like your usual or would you like to try something else and are so attentive. The food is... More
