Taken to Itihaas as a Birthday treat, and a treat it was, first class service from a knowledgeable staff, Matin, the owner, visits every table personally to ensure an enjoyable evening and his personal menu recommendations were perfect, all the dishes had subtly different and unique flavours...looking forward to eating here again on my next visit North!

I was expecting much better as the restaurant appears to pride itself on excellent customer service, it really didn't show. We had an extremely long wait for our food both my children were famished & then the waiter took away my hot plate of veg whilst I was still eating. Food was ok but it wasn't amazing (very weak rahitta)

My son took us to the restaurant for my birthday as he had been before and was quite impressed by it. The service and food did not disappoint - lovely. My other half does not really eat this type of food as he is a "fish supper" type of guy but even he enjoyed what he had. would definately go... More

Our daughter, Heidi, lived in India for 15 months, said this was the best Indian food she has had since leaving India. We ordered by phone. The meal was ready when promised. Well prepared, hot and delicious!

Lovely decor, excellent service, food is amazing. Itihaas never disappoints. Not your average small town Indian restaurant, wouldn't be out of place on George Street in Edinburgh.
