If you like cavernous loud restaurants you'll like the Spice Lounge. It was a bit too loud the evening we visited with numerous large groups competing for creating the loudest decibels. One group in particular singing and throwing things should probably have been asked to pipe down a bit sooner. The blurb on the menu says this is one of... More

Went for a family meal on a busy Saturday night. We had booked and our table was ready quickly despite them being very busy. All the staff were very friendly and attentive. They apologised for the delay in our food and kept us informed, even though we had not been waiting long at all. The food was delicious. One of... More

I've been there 3-4 times and overall my experience is always good. Moreover, if you know your taste buds, you can ask the staff to modify your food as per your taste. As I am an Indian and know the Indian taste better, I always used to ask them to modify my ordered dishes. It's good to do pre-booking on... More

I have only eaten here once but if I return to Norwich it will be my number one choice. The food was excellent with some very authentic Bangladeshi and Indian dishes. Having lived for three years in Dhaka it was great to have food which was real, rather than created for the British market. I went alone as I was... More

Mechanical staff. I found a hair in my food which I got no apologies for from the staff. Looks the business but food and service does not live up to my expectations. Much better Indian restaurants in Norwich.

We visited last night and had what can best be described as a terrible experience, whenever I go here I find the staff to be very overbearing so... More

Clean, modern and functional but not your traditional Indian Restuarant. The menu was not extensive and we found it very hard to read in the modern low lighting. I opted for something I knew would likely be on the menu as both my friend and I not brought our glasses with us. The accompaniments to the poppadoms consisted of shredded... More
