General Ambience and food was tasty and full of flavour. Varied menu and good selection of vegetarian dishes.
However, Waitresses were over zealous and at times not helpful. They also cleared the table when we had not finished eating.
Excellent restaurant great food great service reasonably priced and a lovely decor inside
The food was amazing - one of the best curries ever. We loved the Goan prawn curry and methi chicken as well as Nairobi samosa and samisa chat - all spicy, complex and beautifully cooked. The only negative was having to wait quite a long time before anyone took a drinks order after we arrived.
I think after a long time I enjoyed authentic Indian meal instead of the corrupt version that gets sold as one. Indian food is always treated as comfort food unlike some other cuisines of the world where the presentation & quantity caters to the Micheline level. So it was nice to see this restaurant doing their bit to break that thinking little bits here & there. Lovely service & divine ambience that was just amazing. Keep up and hope to see some brilliant dishes from the kitchen and improved chatpati bhindi.
Well looked after even though really busy food was superb. Will be going back for sure
Waitress was rude
We had the thali which had a selection of curries all of which were tasty and the right size for two sharing.
We also had the manchurian starter which was saucy and hot. The fries and popadoms were nice starters too!
The pina colada mocktail was so tasty it was like icecream and the passion fruit one my hubby enjoyed.
Service was on point as the waiter changed our plates a couple of times and wiped our table down after starters.
Would highly recommend and go again. Thank you Ithihaas
Could be better with more dining space, noise level was loud and it felt over crowded. Service and food was good so that balanced it out.
Wonderful in every way. Food was amazing, beautiful restaurant, very busy on a Saturday evening with a glamorous crowd.
Was druk en daardoor duurde het wat langer om te mogen bestellen. Daarna nergens op hoeven te wachten. Goede wijnen voor normale prijzen
There was a bit of a wait for our table to be ready but worth it when we got there. Delicious food & cocktails & in a buzzing atmosphere
The food is always amazing and the staff very friendly
We had a wonderful last meal before the second COVID shutdown. Food and service were just perfect from Muhammad and the team. Well done Itihaas.
Exceptionally tasty and authentic Indian cuisine. Generous portion sizes.
Great decor and ambience.
Brilliant customer service. Meticulous and attention to detail. Can’t wait to go again.
Overall good food service was not so good
Really nice service and food
I've been 2 times now and loved it both times. The staff are really friendly and attentive. The food and atmosphere are really nice
I had booked this restaurant having decided to look beyond the usual multitude of Indian restaurants available in Birmingham accepting that it may be more costly than the usual choices. Also, I was interested to experience food that had been described in some of the reviews read that it was more like authentic Indian food than other places.
On arriving we were sat immediately at the table booked and therefore didn’t use the area where the bar was which looked like a pleasant place to have drink should you have to wait. The restaurant itself was very tastefully furnished, decorated and suitably spaced.
We ordered some popadums to start along with a Chilli Garlic prawns from the Indo Chinese section. The prawns were very tasty and substantial, however the noodles weren’t crispy as described on the menu. However, overall the flavour of the sauce was very good and with the right level of spice as to not overwhelm the prawns.
The main courses we ordered were lamb rogan josh and makhani chicken. We also had a garlic naan and mushroom pilau to accompany them.
The lamb was very lean and tender. The sauce was medium spiced and not overly hot, with additional coriander which gave it a fresh flavour. The chicken dish was tasty, not spicy and rich in flavour. However, I did think it wasn’t too different from the same dish served elsewhere. The naan was fresh and well cooked just as I like them with a strong garlic flavour. The rice was ok but the truffle oil addition was not really apparent.
The drinks were fairly priced and suitably chilled, we ordered a bottle of dry white and large cobra beer. The waiter was attentive without being obtrusive.
Overall, I would recommend a visit to Itihaas if you are looking for an Indian restaurant that is a bit different to the usual choices.
Another excellent night at Itihaas- such great service and absolutely delicious food
Excellent service ! Waiters are so lovely and the food was superb! definitely be going back
Excellent food and ambience.
The only problem we had was getting our drinks re-ordered, due to same staff serving you when we requested of another waiter we were left waiting for second lot of drinks for 20mins.
We would go again as the food was amazing! Thank you we had a lovely evening !
Service was absolutely terrible. 40 minute waits between meals. They cleared the table after dinner and didn’t even offer a dessert menu or ask for additional drinks until being prompted 30 minutes later.
Felt more like a canteen, very disappointed, had very high hopes after a wonderful experience there before.
Food was excellent. Staff friendly and helpful. The restaurant was set out really well. Would recommend to anyone
I have been to the restaurant in the past on numerous occasion and the food was lovely. I was very disappointed on this occasion the chilli paneer tatse like it was made last night and it wasn't tasty at all. The curry wasn't great either I am not one of the them to complaint otherwise I would have asked for a refund. I didn't have a great experience and my gf thought the same
It was great. However, the service was slow. They forgot our drinks twice, but other than that. It was great
Over priced restaurant and the staff was too busy. Wait time was long for starters and main.
The decor is out of date. It was very dark and lights kept flashing.The food is mediocre. I wouldn't pay full price for the meal. The service was non-existent, apart from one female waitress. I will never go back.
Loved the food ! Service was amazing . My favourite place for good Food
We really enjoy going to Itihaas . The food is always delicious, staff very courteous and friendly, beautiful ambience. We’ve been to several fine dine places all over the country -itihaas is one of the best all around
Starters were nice, mains were not great. Plus food is very expensive so not really worth the price
Terrible! Horrible service and horrible food, terrible person who entered us.
Excellent service and the food was fantastic and very good value would definitely dine there again .
Service was slow! We were made to wait for a table even though we had booked- makes no sense.
Waiter was begging for a tip which made us feel a bit uncomfortable!
Food was good especially the safari platter
Great food, table was at 9:30pm and we were told the restaurant closed at 10.30pm so felt a little rushed, even though people came after us. Everything was excellent and the safari platter was delicious, my only criticism would be that we were given ketchup as part of the pickle tray with poppadoms which was odd and a first for both of us.
Service was great too.
A lovely Indian restaurant not typically decorated in the usual style, it felt quite cosy with a calming ambience. Food very tasty. Service excellent. Would definitely visit again and would recommend to others.
Fabulous food as always
We visited Itihaas very shortly after restaurants were allowed to re-open following the coronavirus pandemic. The restaurant was quite empty and unfortunately a diner on another table felt it was quite appropriate to take a very loud and long business call on his mobile; but aside from that, everyone was charming and helpful, and the food was delicious, with generous portion sizes.
