Five of us went in for a meal on a Saturday night - after a recommendation from friends - and came away very impressed. Great selection on the menu (for starts / mains - not so much for desert). The food was delicious - well presented, hot, and arrived in good time. Will happily go again and recommend to all.

I have visited this restaurant 3 times now and each time I have been it has been excellent. The business lunches are super with a good choice. I have tried the pakora, the chicken kebab the pasanda and the tikka all were excellent. The plates are hot when the waiter brings them to you and the table linen is spotless.... More

My school has been invited to this restaurant on quite a few occasions for the children to have the experience of visiting a restaurant and to experience Indian cuisine. We were made to feel very welcome and many of the children thoroughly enjoyed their experience. I also visited with my school staff and had a lovely meal with excellent, friendly... More

I have been passing by on many times and always wanted to come in and try their food. Eventually on Friday night when all other places were too busy and noisy we came over. No regret since then as it was very nice and welcoming. Staff were very polite, food delicious, atmosphere relaxing. So far we had an evening we... More

I went with a friend to the Sunday Buffet. We tried a bit of everything they had, to see what we liked the best to try some more of it, but none of us could find anything we really enjoyed. Not very tasty (and certainly reheated). I've read great reviews of the place here, so maybe the non-buffet option is... More

Having been to many Indian eateries and found them all superb I had the pleasure of being introduced to Itihaas in Dalkeith by my sister in law and her partner.

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

It's always a good sign when you enter a restaurant and you see all the tables are taken. The food in Itihaas was excellent and the service was very pleasant and efficient.
