Itihaas scoops top honours at 2007 Cobra Good Curry Awards


Images Video Audio  
Leading fine-dining Indian restaurant Itihaas scooped two prestigious awards at this years 2007 Cobra Good Curry Awards for the most coveted Best UK Indian Restaurant and for Best in Midlands.
The awards took place on Tuesday 19th December 2006 at Hilton Hotel, Park Lane London, and rewarded Britan’s best curry houses and Indian restaurants, honouring their contribution and extraordinary achievements.

The inspiration behind this stylish restaurant is 28 year old Birmingham entrepreneur Raj Rana. With no previous catering experience and a business background in jewellery and property management he says “My vision was of a restaurant that was more than just somewhere to eat – I wanted it to envelop fantastic food, superb service and a unique environment, creating a place where fads and fashions are irrelevant. Itihaas is a pure labour of love for me and is simply one man’s interpretation of royal cuisine and royal service, yet still having a relaxed and informal atmosphere.”

With an expenditure of £2m on the building and furnishings, the ambience has an 18th and 19th century touch with sensational Indian artefacts and traditions of Mogul and Maharaja India with dishes influenced by North India, Mumbai, Chinese Fusion and Kenya

The awards were hosted by Cobra Good Curry Guide Editor and Curry Club founder Pat Chapman. Chapman’s, Cobra Good Curry Guide, first published in 1984 and now in its 9th edition, features over 1000 of the finest curry houses and Indian restaurants, hand picked from the 9,000 restaurants that now exist in the UK.

The Cobra Good Curry Awards recognises the quality and huge variety of authentic food our modern Indian restaurants make available. Nominees represent regional cuisine as diverse as Goan, Gujarati, Rajasthani, Kerelan and Punjabi as well as those whose cuisine is Bangladeshi, Nepalese, Pakistani and Sri Lankan.
