Called in here one evening whilst up in the Lakes, and I have to say it was a very pleasant experience, accompanied by some excellent Indian food. The main reason we chose here was because they did a very rare dish - salmon tikka as...More

First visit to Itihaas whilst we were on a short break in Ambleside. The restaurant was presented well, staff very polite & the food was lovely. Would most definitely recommend a visit if your in the mood for an Indian meal.

Had a takeaway whilst holidaying in Ambleside. Food nice, tasty and very enjoyable. Service good. However even with the takeaway 20% discount, felt that the food was pricey.
