Phoned in order and it was ready to collect as promised by the friendly staff, food was hot and well packed. Everything was well cooked, quality products and more than sufficient quantity. Will definitely make a return visit to this restaurant!

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.

I have never had a bad meal from this restaurant whether it is sitting in or take out. Yes the take out takes longer than some places but that's because it's freshly made! Really delicious food and definitely worth a visit.

Once again we had a fabulous meal here. We turned up without a reservation but were very lucky to get a table as this is a very popular place to eat. No wonder! The food is freshly prepared and beautifully served. Nothing is too much trouble and staff are attentive and helpful. The atmosphere is so lovely. Nice traditional music... More
