I think I have been to every curry house in the Norwich area and none have ever rivaled the Spice Lounge. I've become a regular here over the years and continue to be amazed by the quality of food and service. Everything comes quickly, everything tastes good, and all the waiters are friendly and relaxed. Every dish (and I've tried... More

Four of us went here on a Sunday night, and the restaurant was not at all full. However I would think that Saturday would present a different picture given the number of people out in the area on that night. The restaurant is situated at the junction of Tombland and Wensum St., opposite the Maids Head hotel. The staff are... More

Probably the best service in an Indian restarantula in Norwich. Very good food of consistent quality. I and my family are regular customers, within reason they will cook some dishes that are not on the menu. In my opinion the best Indian restaurant in Norwich. If you like chicken achari, ask for it (not on the menu).

Have been here three times now, absolutely brilliant. Friendly welcome upon entering, making for a warm atmosphere. Have tried a different dish each time and all have been delicious. On my most recent visit I ordered a Chicken Tikka Naga and when I asked could I have it more spicy, the staff were more than happy to do it for... More
