Amazing as per usual - never fails to impress.
The menu is always full of variety for meat and non meat eaters and the deserts are amazing !
Not my first time there and definitely not my last
Disgusted that waiter brought the bill to us while we were still drinking. This i found very rude. When we politely informed him we hadnt finished he stated the restaurant was busy!!!! Would not apologise at all!!!!
Would never go again
Absolutely fantastic from the minute we walked in to the minute we left. Given the “same”Asian dishes can vary greatly, I would think because the Indian sub continent is so vast, this restaurant is definitely amongst the best we have eaten at
30 mins waiting for our reserved table which was annoying but ok because we weren't starving. The food was just ok and not much better than you would get at much more casual Indian restaurants around town. The tandoori mix plate starter which we ordered as a main course was tasty but obviously not cooked fresh as it was all rather dry. At £28 I'd expect a lot more. The chicken curry was good but again nothing special. Service was attentive and friendly
Authentic flavours, gorgeous ingredients, superb environment.
Great food and good customer service. The drinks menu has changed. Much better selection.
Fabulous food and outstanding service. The cocktails are some of the best I have ever tasted!
Had a very nice meal at Itihaas. Indian food with a modern take. Not cheap but worth it.
Unfortunately my review is poor for all areas due to the fact that I had a booking for 8pm which I amended to 8:30pm to which I was told would be fine. Upon arrival we were told to sit down and wait in reception. 4 large groups of people were seated before us and we were the last ones waiting. At 8:55pm we were still waiting and at this point decided to walk out. Instead we went to Asha’s who sat us down within 15 mins even though they were extremely busy and we did not have a booking. It’s a real shame and a really bad impression for a first visit to this restaurant. It was our anniversary and it was almost ruined. Don’t think I’ll be trying to eat here again!
We were sat downstairs where there were no people directly under the air con, food good service poor
Absolutely exceptional in every way. Just happened to be up in Birmingham to go to a gig and just happened to chat to a friend who was at a restaurant in Winchester at the time who told me that if I was in Birmingham I couldn't leave without eating there, how right he was.
The food was amazing, everything was exceptional but if I was allowed only 1 thing again off the menu it had to be the soft shelled crab, never had it so well done, I have eaten it in many places including Benares and Tamarind where it is so close to perfection it is incredible, but I think even they just met their match with this item!
The staff were lovely and attentive without being in your face, just loved every minute of it, rushed as we were because of getting away for the gig, wish we could of stayed longer, but we will definitely be going back.
This is the second time we visited Itihaas and the food great. We would be definitely visiting again.
Quality of food was second to none as usual. I had the lamb for starter and main and found it very tender
One of the best Indian restaurants around. Excellent food and service, can’t fault it
Lovely food and great service. Very enjoyable experience and would definitively recommend to all my friends .
We were never given the chance to eat! We left after 20 minutes before being seated. We were asked if we would like a drink when we first arrived and were given a drinks menu but nobody came back to ask what we would like. We then observed chaos ensuing as people who had been waiting were shown to tables and then returned to the bar area as their tables were not ready. I cannot comment on the food but would hope it is better than the service. Will not be returning here and fortunately as it was our wedding anniversary we managed to get a table at another Indian restaurant. May Be we just encountered a bad Saturday night with too many people to look after.
Starters different but not our cup of tea. Main meal ok.
2nd visit to Itihaas, arrived during a snowstorm. Warm welcome. Good friendly service. Food really good, tasty but not too spicey. Not the cheapest place in Birmingham, but location convenient and reliably good value for money
The service and ambience were fine. However the food was disappointing and did not live up to expectations. It was very ordinary.
The food was delicious and most of the staff were wonderful. Our experience was a little ruined by the fact that one of the managers (I assume as he was dressed in a suit) came to our table four times to ask my (male) partner if everything was OK with the meal (sir). He didn't once look at me or ask me if my meal was OK. The only time he spoke to me was when he told me I would have to vacate the table as they needed it for someone else.
Fantastic food quality with some great and varying dishes, the starters including a tasty salmon dish were mouth watering. Excellent service and good atmosphere, would recommend to others for night out, group of friends or business events
We booked this restaurant for my parents anniversary. The service was excellent and the waiters were very attentive.
The food could have been more flavoursome, that is the only negative but overall an enjoyable evening.
The restaurant is beautiful and service is first class, only downfall it is a bit pricy with limited variety. I as a vegetarian had the best meal ever, whereas my husband didn’t enjoy his quite as much.
Our visit to Itihaas was amazing. We originally booked for 9 people but were 8 on the day. The reservations team followed up the booking and ensured we sent out our pre order for lunch.
The food was served as ordered and everyone in my team was happy with the taste. Drinks were served on time and accurately. The staff are very friendly and accommodating.
Quality food in a great setting. Service was top drawer. Definitely be visiting again.
The food was the only good thing about this restaurant, the service was shocking. Made to wait for 20 min even though we had reservation, after waiting got seated downstairs where it was empty and very cold.
Booked for two based on previous occasions which have been good. However on this occasion the service and food were below the usual standards. Very disappointed.
Popadoms were so wafer thin, which kept on crumbling when trying to dip them in the accompanying sauces and so couldn't eat them.
We're not large eaters and so ordered mains with "Tokri ki Roti ". This was described as a selection of different Roti's. What arrived were Garlic Nann and plain nann. No roti.
Having said that, my main meal, Makhni Murgh was excellent and my partners dish was also of the same calibre.
The waiter did ask how our meal was and I told him how we felt. Nothing was done about it.
Having paid the bill, as we were walking past the same gentleman at the bar, neither he our the bar girl bid us goodnight or a thankyou. We wer both very disappointed with the service recieved on this occasion.
Top notch as usual , Food and ambiance excellent .Would recommend it but not cheap.
Good food in a nice setting and service was of a good quality
Good Indian restaurant with very attentive service
Tried steak ,very , very good ,all four of us where very happy with our meals , crab starter, great , lovely place , great food , great ice cream and walnut with Jameson Whisky pudding , the most expensive meal in my life (59) but great thank you ,
Was no mention of it being closed. No signage. Was closed and no message on telephone either
Expected more for the price you can pay much less and better tasting food at Akbars or tipu sultan!
The food itself was delicious however had to wait for an extensive amount of time before the food arrives. Waiters forgot parts of our order. Potential to be a lovely place with the right staff.
The service is really good. I have not tasted this good Indian food in a long long time. The place is tastefully decorated with historic artifacts. Saroj was the person who served us. He made us feel at home with his quirky humour. Looking forward to visit again .
Excellent Punjabi cuisine in superb restuarant
We were in Birmingham for a University Interview and had read about your restaurant in a Good Food guide. We were not disappointed! A fabulous and memorable evening with wonderful food and lovely staff, thank you so much.
If Birmingham University make an offer, we will definitely be back again, many times!
I have recently purchased the Independent Birmingham card which on Sundays to Thursdays entitles the card holder to 20% off the bill. I called ahead prior to the booking to confirm that this was still the case and was told that it was. After travelling across town on our lunch break we were told that the card was not valid on the lunch menu - I was not told this on the phone and no where on the Independent Birmingham website was this clause stipulated so it was false advertising and we would not have gone had we been aware of this.
The best Indian restaurant in Birmingham, it's always delicious and consistently good.
The food was as we expected: Extremely high quality Sputh Asian fare, with a modern sense of presentation, and incredibly deft balancing of flavours and spices. The wine list was extensive, and reasonably priced.
But the service? Oh dear. Despite the best efforts of those who welcomed us, service was, for most of the meal, a joke. Drinks ordered took an age, and three reminders, to come. Two bottles of wine (one red, one white) appeared. We had to prompt the waiter to bring glasses. He brought four, to a table of five. We asked for second glasses for those who wished to switch wine. I wonder if they ever arrived. We'd certainly left before they did. Not enough cutlery was brought for the mains. When we pointed this out, one person ended with two forks. One person with their old, dirty cutlery. We hadn't been offered dessert, when we were informed the restaurant was closing.
So, for two courses, and a couple of glasses of wine each, we were billed £250. If you're charging that, you can afford to pay professional staff who know what a restaurant is, and what it does. The flavours were lovely, but not worth the effort, or the price.
