Dinner is best option.

Have eaten here at lunchtime a couple of times and it was so so. But dinnertime here is much better. Not bad quality for this type of restaurant. Lots of choice. Good value.

No sign on the door and at 20:40 turned away by staff. Closed !! What more can I say. But staff didn't say if this was just for the evening or long term.

I visited this restaurant last night with my dad , we were very disappointed that by the fact that most of the food was not very hot. This was a shame as the taste of the food would of been much better if it was hotter.

very limited menu at lunch time and thought it was expensive because of choice of food. It was okay if you wanted a kids English menu. It's really sad as the Evening menu we have always found excellent.

My wife and I thought we would try this place as an alternative to our usual Chinese buffet restaurant, it was a bad choice, we stood in a foyer for a while not knowing where to go or what to do, after sometime we went through some doors toward a bar where we was promptly asked how many for the...

Popped in for a quick lunch. Service was poor, waited at bar for quite a while before being served, single waitress either couldn't keep up with clearing plates or deliberately kept missing our table. Starters weren't good, the duck pancakes were served with raw sliced onion instead of spring onion, cheaper, but a bit harsh on the taste buds, prawn... More

Called in on Saturday lunchtime. I'd already run to ask about gluten free food and someone pointed out to me the items I should have been able to eat. I stuck with what was advised but judging by how I felt afterwards I suspect at least one of the items had gluten. A bigger problem was the chicken cooked on... More

Very average... Food was only just warm. Good selection of dishes, but it's obviously done on a budget, and nothing special. Place lacks atmosphere, and staff not overly friendly. Riverside buffet is a much better choice in my opinion.

We have visited Merge quite a few times and it is my husbands favourite out of the few buffet restaurants in norwich, or at least it was. We went for lunch on Wednesday 18th and it was fairly quiet, the food wasn't anywhere near as good as normal. The sweet and sour chicken had no taste what so ever and... More
