Itihaas

 An awful lot of money has been put into this big place on the corner of Newhall Street which straddles the business and jewellery quarters. And it looks like it has paid off - Itihaas was named best Indian restaurant in the country in 2006.

 The decor is opulent. if a little odd in places with chandeliers lining one half of the dining room and a collection of lanterns on the other.

 But the food is very good and obviously freshly made. with more unusual dishes that come not just from India but also from Kenya and there are Chinese influences here and there too.

Well, Pete, I cannot understand your rating of this wonderful restaurant. I have just had lunch there and can't wait to go back. To have a selection of six portions of gorgeous, tasty and interesting food plus 'free' bread for �8.95 a head in this opulent but very friendly and helpful restaurant was a privilege and a gastronomic delight. I didn't like the music that was played - some meditative ragas would have given this place 25/25, instead of the 24 I have awarded it. I would highly recommend the lunch time experience to anyone who enjoys top quality,great value eating.

Seemed nice from the outside and thought would have a great dining experince. Went inside and then had to wait to be seated. Seated on a dirty table. Did not get served for drinks till 15 mins afterwards. I had to get up and ask..."who was serving me" Then the manager came over and spoke to me and my party in a rude manner. I refused to sit there and take this abuse . After all I am paying for a meal not take abuse. In my opinion avoid there are other places in Birmingham which are much better and know how to treat there customer well and better priced ...
