I had looked on line for a vegetarian restaurant as my friend is a vegetarian. Found the café a lovely place to visit nice choice of meals even for a non vegetarian like me. The staff where friendly and the café well kept. Prices where reasonable

I have been to The River Green many times and have always had a great meal and great food. I went for lunch the other day and on the way out bought 3 of their frozen take away meals for £10 FOR THE THREE. Just had one with some rice and a crusty roll and it was probably the best... More

Really enjoyed our first visit to this restaurant. Food was very tasty; staff friendly and knowledgable; relaxed atmosphere. Only regret was that I was too full to try the lovely sounding desserts......starter and main course portions are generous .....will definitely go again if opportunity arises.

As a strict vegetarian recently moved to the Norwich area, I had been meaning to try this restaurant for some time & finally went to meet friends there for a Sunday lunch. We had booked an early table & when we arrived, we were the only ones there at midday. It is quite a large space with a lot of... More

Lunch out with girlfriends, one of us vegetarian and the others all eat a predominately vegetarian diet. Lovely menu, which wasn't massive but still gave plenty of choice. We skipped starters and went straight for the mains. Each of the mains were plentiful to say the least, very tasty and well cooked. In terms of fullness I don't suppose I... More

We enjoyed a beautiful meal here to celebrate my wife's birthday, booked online some weeks before. The staff were attentive and the ambience was pleasant. I thought the menu was interesting and varied, and I could have chosen several dishes. We shared an Indian platter to start and I then enjoyed a bean burger followed by mixed sorbets with berries.The... More

We are lucky enough to live right by the river green so call in pretty frequently. We have milkshakes and cakes with the kids ( very popular) and dinner both with kids and without. The food is always really flavoursome and tasty and has what I call the more interesting choices from a vegetarian diet. It's not all just pasta... More

Thanks for your review, we try and give vegetarians a bit of variety, it can mainly be pasta and pastry elsewhere! We should be changing our main menu at the end of this month so keep an eye out for our announcement and come back for some new tasty dishes :) More

We visited this restaurant with some family who were visiting us from London. We were delighted with the whole experience. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The menu offered good choice and there was a specials board too. I would not hesitate to go back to this restaurant and I am not a vegetarian!

This certainly was one of the best meals we had ever had. Beautifully served generous portions. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable. Looking forward to another meal before too long.
