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 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.

    Very busy due to Mother’s Day , staff were abit slow in taking orders and serving food. Food came out lukewarm which was sent back and told to reheat. Regularly come here and usually have a great experience. Maybe a one off so will be back soon. Food taste wise was decent not up to usual standards.

    We booked a table for Saturday so do expect that their will be delays etc. However, we didn’t recieve a menu for about 15 mins after we were seated and around 5/6 different waiters approached us throughout our meal. So we didn’t have one consistant person allocated to us. You could see the waiters were flustered but they were extremely apologetic and offered us some poppadoms on the house. The mangager did come over to us at the end and apologised for all the delay. Food tasted lovely

    The best Indian food in the UK we have tasted! Our waiter was excellent and advised us not to order too much as the portions were big! He was so lovely and so honest which made a change to other restaurants that want you to spend money unnecessarily . We can’t wait to come back!
