Itihaas restaurant in Birmingham is one stunning eaterie. This beautiful restaurant —the name means ‘history’ -- is the £2 million brainchild of businessman Raj Rana and it’s been raking in awards since it opened its doors. The décor is contemporary meets traditional with two dining rooms honouring colonial and maharaja eras – there are slate finished walls, original paintings, carved stone elephants, Jali marble window frames like those found in Mogul palaces and elegant black sari-clad hostesses. Chef Amardeep Saka offers intriguing dishes influenced by North India, Mumbai, Chinese fusion and Kenya. The cuisine and service are royal, yet the ambience is relaxed and informal – a history-making combination in anyone’s book.

    We loved Itihaas and my husband chose this instead of Asha’s/lasan etc as more traditional food. While the food was delicious, and the waiter friendly we asked for doggy bags as we had so much food left over. We were told they were too busy and we were give boxes to scoop our food ourselves. It was awkward and embarrassing and my husband was mortified as everyone was looking. I wished gain if they could do it he said no. This wasn’t the same waiter who served us. It’s just not what anybody once to do in a nice restaurant, that isn’t cheap, in from of loads of people. It was embarrassing.

    Food here has become very average. I was disappointed in the starters food temp was warm. Lamb chops they advertise as being spring lamb chops which I don’t think they are meat was tough. Chicken was ok but temp not great. Vegi starters were better. Mains were average but expect better from a high end place

    Starters were ok Vegetarian main dish below par Vegetarian biryani was ok but brought in open tray ...bad idea as it becomes cold easily,gravy and raita given with it is in really small quantity and very average taste. Hariyali paneer was top class Kids liked chicken tikka Gobi and aloo sabzi was extremely salty particularly the cauliflower florets ...to salty . Chef looks like had bad day with wife at home. Mocktails were very good Desert was superb The waiter made a mistake with our order ,quickly corrected For the name of ithihas the Food ( particularly vegetarian) very below par. Quality does not match the pricey bill at the end 😔

    The Thali Dining was tasty and good value with being able to eat as much as you like of your favourite dishes. I loved the butter chicken and spicy cauliflowers and being able to ask for more nan bread until I could eat no more.. We liked the food, service and atmosphere very much.

    The hosts were very friendly and made you feel welcome, Starters were very tasty but the mains were just average and extremely pricey. I believe you are paying a premium for the location & decor.
