My husband took me here for our aniversary, wow the food is delicous and the staff went out there way to make my night there special.
I have only had one sit-in and one takeaway from Itihaas. On both occasions the food was excellent.
The thing that impresses me most about this restaurant is the service. Extremely good.
I remember when my partner and I went for a sit-in, the manager/owner was very friendly and chatty. Tonight (New Years Day) we went for a takeaway and the same chap came around all the folk waiting for their baggies and wished them all a HNY and shook everyone's hand and bore a big smile.
This was a nice touch but more importantly showed that the management care about how their business is perceived and their customer's experience while on the premises. With this attitude, everything else is bound to be good.
Will be back....soon.
Happy New Year to all
Unexpectedly brilliant Indian restaurant in Dalkeith/Eskbank. I'm not sure why its brilliance should be unexpected, except that my previous culinary experiences in Dalkeith have not been anything to write about (literally).
Although quiet during the lunchtime I was there, the atmosphere was calm but not spooky and the service attentive but never bothersome. And the food was delicious. All the usual suspects on the menu, plus some fish curries and Itihaas specialities. Check out their menu on the website.
As full as I was I still managed the coconut ice cream. ah the coconut ice cream, truly a taste of paradise.
To be honest, I just wanted to wax a little more lyrical about Itihaas - and how delicious it's offerins are. Although the boy wasn't overwhelmed by his prawn puree starter or chicken tikka masalla (by his own admission, he 'got what he expected'), I was so excited about mine - from the salmon tikka to start - delicious with enough kick to keep me on my non spicy toes, to my saag aloo (by god I think they got the potato from heaven it tasted so good) and one of the most enjoyable chana massallams I've had in a while. I enjoyed every single bite.
Lovely food and great service for both take away and sit in. The lamb dishes are always very good. :)
We have eaten at Itihaas on several occasions and each time, it has been superb. The service is excellent - friendly and very helpful without being pushy or over-attentive. The food is superb - we have tried various different dishes each time we have been there, and every single one has been absolutely delicious. Owner Matin and his staff are welcoming and happy to answer any questions you may have about any particular dish. Would definitely recommend Itihaas - well worth the trip to Dalkeith even if you don't live locally. Itihaas is definitely a jewel in Midlothian's crown and richly deserves the various awards it has been winning lately.
