Our first visit and made to feel very welcome. Good choice on menu and the quality of the food was spot on. The lamb I had was both tasty and tender which is always a good measure in my opinion. The service was excellent while the place was very busy (Saturday night). Nice atmosphere, good food, great service means we... More

I've only eaten in the restaurant once or twice but order take away from Ithaas every other week or so. I don't consider any other place in our area, the food is always seriously great and clearly made with high-quality ingredients. I married a lass from the Midlands of England and she raves about the place - what better recommendation... More

Lovely night for the 6 of us. Food was of top standard and the service was, as usual, great. Even the kids of 3-5 years dug into the lighter, sweeter curry options whilst we adults tested our mettle on a hotter option. The Pashwari naan is a firm favourite. Thank you to Robert and team who made it a fab... More

Found this by chance, a large family from abroad, 3 generations, very hungry after an afternoon at the nearby Butterfly Farm. Got a family table in a quiet back room which suited us fine. Large selection of Bangladeshi/Indian food, also a few western dishes. Excellent service with good advice from staff. All the food was excellent. The vindaloo could have... More

Ordered from the lunchtime menu, the two course option for £8.95 starter was fine, my main course had 4 small chunks of chicken in the dish. When we were asked ' is everything ok' I replied that I was disappointed with the quantity of meat as I basically had a dish full of sauce, also my husband had the thali... More
