Dalkeith eatery is a hot favourite

There is no bad korma in Dalkeith, where a local curry house has been voted the Best South Asian Restaurant in Scotland.

Itihaas scooped the award in the UK’s Asian Curry Awards at a function attended by more than 1,000 guests in London.

Billed as the biggest event in the UK’s Asian catering calendar, it covers the Chinese, Thai, Malaysian, Japanese, Nepalese and pan-Asian catering sectors as well as Bangladeshi and Indian cuisine.

Awards are made on a regional basis.

“Things have been hotting up for us for the past couple of years,” said Itihaas director Matin Khan, who received the trophy. Read full story in the December 13 edition of the Midlothian Advertiser.
