I visited the restaurant yesterday and as you walk in it clearly has signs that they serve Chinese,Japanese, Asian food. I paid for two lunches and went straight to the buffet. There were lots of empty dishes that weren't being refilled even on requests. The food that was there looked like it had come out of boxes and didn't look... More

Went here for lunch once, which is more than enough for my liking. Most of the food containers at the buffet were empty, so not much choice. The food that was on offer tasted a little stale, like it had been there a while. A bit greasy too. & when did sausages & waffles become Chinese food?! Service wasn't particularly... More

We love going to Merge, the atmosphere is very relaxed and there's no waiting for ages after ordering food because it's there waiting when you're ready. Evenings have more choice and we've tried lots of different things which we would never have ordered and tried at another type of restaurant.

16.05.14 - 7.30pm After reading some of the reviews some of the party were less than keen to eat here, but everyone was pleasantly suprised by the helpful, friendly staff and the quality of the food on offer. Four of our party are actively involved in food hygiene within the company who's works do it was. We all agreed that... More

My partner and I went on Sat 10th May. We ordered a Pepsi and a pint of stella which were both extremely flat and watered down. When we asked for a replacement to Chinese lady on the bar was VERY rude to us. The food.. well firstly it's cold. The meat is rubbery and over cooked, probably reheated 3/4 times.... More

Eat as much as you like, but to be honest you would not want to eat too much as quality is poor, sloppy food & far better options in Norwich

Went here with friends on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was quiet. Amount of food on display in each dish was poor and only warm. Too much 'fast food' aimed at children for my liking, i.e. fish fingers, waffles, jelly, doughnuts, etc. Certainly not what I was expecting from this type of establishment, and a very expensive way of buying...

Foul tasting food - Calamari, which somehow managed to taste powdery, with a slimy consistency. Grisly meat, the chicken and sweetcorn soup tasted like metal, all the food barely warm and the profiteroles tasted like oil...Absolutely disgusting food; the worst meal we have ever had.

I haven't been to Merge since my last unpleasant visit so am not sure if the staff still works there or not. So, I was ordering drinks for my boyfriend and myself. I ordered still water and he gave me a glass of tap water. So I said "no. I meant bottled still water". Guess what he said. "That's called... More
