Lovely environment, fantastic veggie food!

Had a really lovely lunch today with friends. All the food was delicious - fantastic dahl, real italian mozzarella, lovely fresh bread. Staff were smiling, efficient and helpful. Great location overlooking the village green - will definitely go back next time I'm in Norwich!

I am the only vegetarian in my family so it takes a lot to persuade my family to enjoy vegetarian food, and they loved it! The food is so fresh and absolutely delicious. Also there's a ride rage of cultures in the food, giving a great wide selection of choice. Not to mention the delicious chocolate and salted caramel torte... More

Visited for a family meal today and it was absolutely excellent in every way. The service was great, the food delicious and beautifully presented (especially the desserts.) I cannot recommend highly enough, even the non veggies loved it! The restaurant is light, comfortable and spacious so ideal for family groups or larger parties. Lovely location overlooking the green too. In... More

Absolutely lovely place to have dinner. My family and I had come to Norwich for the long weekend and we came to River Green Cafe on our first night for dinner and it was excellent. The restaurant was warm and inviting, and all the staff were very friendly. The open kitchen made the atmosphere even more exciting. For starters, I... More

I have eaten many vegetarian meals over the years (My wife a vegetarian) and with the majority I have found them lacking in substance and not fulfilling the expectations and enjoyment I get from a meat dish. The River Green Cafe (my first visit with my Wife) was a revelation. I had Mushroom Wellington which was as filling as a... More

As a particularly sensitive coeliac sufferer, you could imagine my glee at finally finding a coeliac-friendly restaurant! This glee was short lived, I'm afraid to say. When my date and I ordered our drinks and gluten-free kormas, we made sure to inform our young waitress of my condition and my acute sensitivity, to which she assured would be fine. When... More

My wife, being vegetarian, often has a very limited choice of foods to eat in restaurants, so for her birthday, I specifically looked for a vegetarian restaurant. What I found was an absolute treasure. The food was wonderful: the ambiance was warm and friendly and, to be honest, I could find no fault with this establishment at all. My only... More

After recently becoming a vegetarian, I was so excited to try the food at River Green. Everything was delicious, the atmosphere was great (really busy for a Wednesday night), the music choice was great and the staff were attentive and polite. I have to say, it was the best meal I've had for a long time and I cannot wait... More

Let me say first, I'm not vegetarian. But I do love food and get excited about great food and River Green do great food. It's tasty, it's well presented, it's the right price. I have tried other veggie restaurants and do not understand why, having made a lifestyle choice to not eat meat they have also decided to eat boring... More
