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.

    The food was very spicy to the point inedible and it was really nothing special. My son who has allergies could not be catered for which in this day and age is shocking. Not even a poppadom. This place used to be amazing but sadly I won’t be returning.

    Main problem was service. We sat down and no one would attend us we had to get up and ask for drinks starters mains and deserts. Felt like we have to run after staff to get served instead on sitting relaxed waiting for them to serve us. Asked a women can we order deserts and she said ask the men here i dont do that which i didnt appreciate because she still could of told other members of staff to come serve us or tell them we wanted deserts. She was very unprofessional. We own our own restaurant alturka and if a customer asks can i have desert we never say i dont do that ask the men that work here she was just serving drinks. Servicw needs improving

    Fantastic food in a lovely setting. We were sitting downstairs which was quiet, upstairs seemed seemed busier. The mains were delicious we all agreed, probably a little more expensive than your average Indian. Beers - Cobra and Kingfisher Recommended..

    It’s been a while since we’ve visited Itihaas, so our meal was a great refresher on how wonderful this place is. The service was impeccable. Our waiter was attentive throughout the evening and incredibly proactive. In general he had a really great vibe. The restaurant itself is going through some exterior building work at the moment but you would never be able to tell once you’re inside. The general theme and atmosphere of the space is calm and sophisticated. Now the food. Each and every single dish was a delight to eat. Every bite was a pleasure. Even with a few dishes unavailable from the menu, there were plenty of choices for every person, and their dietary requirements. We enjoyed gol guppa, samosa chaat, gunpowder fries and lamb sheesh kebab to start. My only feedback was the tamarind water was sweeter than I’m used to, and was expecting a bit more of a kick. Our mains included Makhani Murgh, Makhani Paneer, Rogan Josh paired with garlic naans, jeera chawel and amritsari kulcha. Honestly some of the best curries we’ve had. They were rich, aromatic and the portion sizes were great. We ended up taking some food home, and even a day later the flavours were still amazing. Based on this experience we will be looking forward to our next trip to Itihaas.

    We were group of 7 including kids, and we enjoyed the delicious food served on our table. Every dish served was scrumptious with perfect spice levels for an Indian taste bud. The ambiance was lovely with pleasant music in the background. The staff are very friendly.
