Matin and the staff at Itihaas were amazing. They were super friendly and offered some great recommendations. In particular we enjoyed the chicken puri and the salmon tikka. You must visit this restaurant if you can. We will definitely be returning again soon!

Our first visit and made to feel very welcome. Good choice on menu and the quality of the food was spot on. The lamb I had was both tasty and tender which is always a good measure in my opinion. The service was excellent while the place was very busy (Saturday night). Nice atmosphere, good food, great service means we... More

I've only eaten in the restaurant once or twice but order take away from Ithaas every other week or so. I don't consider any other place in our area, the food is always seriously great and clearly made with high-quality ingredients. I married a lass from the Midlands of England and she raves about the place - what better recommendation... More
