If you like indian food and being spoiled this is the place for you, also great lunch time offers are amazing. I have now visited on many occasions and never left disappointed. Food is always fresh and so full of flavour. Definitely 5 stars from me.

Food here is lovely. Fresh, tasty, well flavoured. Staff friendly and attentive. We have eaten in, had take always, and they even agreed to deliver hot starters for 50 at a recent family event we hosted. Cannot fault this Indian at all.

Decided to try itihaas for a change tonight, as usually we go to Bombay Spice in Bonnyrigg. Hugely disappointing meal. We started with the chicken pakora which were cold, dry and rubbery. Not sure if you're meant to get a sauce with them but a sauce was desperately lacking. My husband went for chicken saag and I had chicken badshahi,... More

We have eaten at Ittihas on a regular basis but our recent visit will be our last. We booked a table for 2 on Hogmanay and granted the restaurant was busy but we were seated in the middle of the main restaurant, surrounded by several large dining parties. The volume of noise we were surrounded by made it completely impossible... More

Had dinner with my niece and everything was spot on. The food, wine & service could not be faulted. Just wish the portions were a bit smaller. So delicious I don't want to leave anything but it is a struggle!

This place is up there with Mother India (Glasgow) The Wee Curry Shop (Glasgow) and Mr Singhs (Glasgow)for the best curries in Scotland. Their awards are very much deserved. Im sitting here waiting impatiently for them to open at 5pm so I can call in for our dinner. We have never been dissapointed with our orders. The Meal Deal for... More

Recommended by a friend, we ate out mid week. the haggis pakora was lovely. Hubby had the biryani and I had the lamb sag with naan. Recommend the rose zinfandel. Would eat here again if up in the area as there were so many lovely specials to choose from
