Located on the corner of Newhall Street and Fleet Street, just a short walk from both New Street and Snow Hill railway stations, this delightful curry house popped with charm and elegance from the moment I stepped in.
But what was the food like? I can honestly say that it was incredible. As mentioned, Birmingham has an abundance of curry houses and Indian restaurants, and whilst I have far from tried them all, I tend to stick to my favourites because it can be hard to find a good one!
The head chef explained to us that he did not want Itihaas to be just another Westernised curry house in the city centre. His menu was created based on traditional dishes that one would actually find in India and surrounding areas. If you’re after a local Balti or a Tikka Masala that you’d usually get from your local Indian take-away then this really isn’t the place for you, but if you’re after some wonderfully cooked food that’s different and traditional then I urge you to give this place a go.
