Well renowned for the veritable horde of curry houses sprawled far and wide throughout the city, over the past decades Birmingham has firmly established itself as a true Mecca to the art of authentic Indian cuisine. Indeed, it is common knowledge that nationwide firm-favourite dishes such as the ‘Balti’ and ‘Butter Chicken’ originated in our fair city, not only highlighting the innovation and creativity of the individual chefs involved but standing against the common underestimations of Birmingham’s cultural heritage.

Welcome to Itihaas – a true shrine to culinary decadence in the heart of Birmingham.
