Went on a Sunday evening and had an excellent meal. Service was slow to start with but picked up after this. Food was really very nice. It's not cheap and not your bog standard Indian. Menu is interesting but limited.

It was our first visit to Itihaaas. Meeting up with family for a night out in Birmingham, we selected this restaurant based on great online reviews. I can now verify those reviews are well deserved. From the moment we stepped through the door the staff were friendly, welcoming and efficient. The interior is tasteful, stylish and colonial. We all commented... More

We've been here three times now and the food is consistently good. Service is good quality and the venue is brilliant, worth wandering out of the city centre for. Food is of a high standard (the daal in particular is awesome). The young Nepalese waiter who served us last week (didn't ask his name, oops) was really friendly and attentive... More

I came to Itihaas all the way from Coventry for a pre-birthday dinner. I must say it was the best Indian food I have had since I came to England. Now this Indian restaurant can afford to call itself authentic among hoards of aspiring but under achieving novices. At the offset, the ambience beckons images of royalty in a quaint... More

We visit this restaurant on a weekly basis and the food is amazing. They have just launched a new menu which is great. Being a vegetarian I love the fact that they have a lot of extraordinary dishes rather than the usual traditional items. Would highly recommend.

Staff was very friendly with a smile. We went with our family and ordered for platter but one of the manager showed us photo of the starter platter of four and suggested and should say it looked very good presented, it was worth the price. In mains we had scallops and prawns that was yummy too and mango Lassi was... More

Itihaas is a stunning restaurant where contemporary meets traditional. No expense has been spared in achieving this, and as you step into this two million pounds restaurant, you will certainly see just that. The decor is clean and crisp with plate glass and slate finished walls. This smart and sophisticated interior is complimented by the 18th and 19th century Indian artefacts, including original paintings, carved stone elephants and 300 year old doors. Downstairs, the Maharaja Suite which also seats 80 is luxurious with opulent mood lighting and decorated with more Indian treasures. To complete the real ambience, behind 300 year old Indian wooden doors is the Tiffin Room which seats 12, complete with a bar, library and your very own dedicated butler!Cuisine in this fine establishment is created by award winning chefs and staff who come from Indian Five-Star Hotel backgrounds. They have a single aim - to be able to deliver the authentic Royal Indian dining experience to its patrons with utmost courtesy and hospitality. The menu will take you on a culinary journey through the North of India with a couple of stops through Kenya and vibrant Mumbai.At this royal eatery, indulgence is paramount.
