This restaurant has been gutted and reborn and is primarily Turkish but do try it and see what you think....our food was good all cooked over charcoal . These are early days for the restaurant but the value and helping were good.

Use to been the main high street now it's loads of restaurants and shops with loads of different things it's nice to see another side of Norwich. The main and best thing I think is Epic Studios which has loads to offer and a very nice cafe.

It is about time some money was injected into this area to update it and turn it into the wonderful street that it could be. The retailers deserve better than this. I can remember as a child walking down that road and the wonderful individual shops that were available was great - I remember taking my doll to the dolls... More

Lovely old street that has a lof history. Don't be put off by the 'character' - this just adds charm to the place! Great antique shops and odd little places you wouldn't know existed..

There are 2 big(ish) centres (looses and alladin's cave) and various other shops inc a clock shop (my speciality) with a large Oxfam charity shop. Plenty to see and buy if you can find the... More

We always go to the glasshouse most Friday nights for a couple of wines and food. Nice atmosphere friendly staff and excellent value for money.
