br>One of the best pieces of advice we can impart is that when enjoying Indian cuisine, you should always consider the chef’s specialities – after all, these experts really do know best. Take for example the mirchi murgh with tender baby chicken, tossed in fresh crushed ginger and garlic before being pan-fried with fresh green chillies. If seafood is more to your taste, why not pull out all the stops by ordering the lobster paanch phoren simmered with five spices in a creamed mustard paste? Vegetarians will also find plenty of appealing dishes at Itihaas Birmingham, with nourishing yet delish paneer, lentils and chickpea options to beat the band.
This was an amazing experience.The lightness of the spices the quality of the ingredients was fantastic.The vegetarian sharing platter and the meat platter would have fed six people.The bread basket also was enough for four of us. Everyone enjoyed all our dishes my Lamb in spinach was a beautiful thing.Book with confidence.
