We went for lunch today. I had chicken roti, my wife had salmon in a Creole sauce, and our sons had BBQ ribs and jerk chicken. They were all freshly cooked, tasty and filling. Denis came out of the kitchen for a chat and was extremely charming. The bill was under £50 including drinks. Worth coming to Norwich for this... More

We dined as a party of three on a Saturday night. We had heard good things about Chez Denis, and were not disappointed. The service is friendly and welcoming. One of our party was a little late, but the staff made no bones about this, and were keen to reassure us that the table was ours for the whole evening.... More

We found this gorgeous little place by following the smell whilst out shopping in Norwich! To be honest I probably would have walked passed and not even noticed it had it been closed... it was the amazing smells coming from there that attracted us and it wasn't a disappointment! The food was fantastic and I liked the fact that the... More

This was my first time here and let me say that it was a wonderful experience. The food was utterly delightful but be prepared for a delay as Denis is in the kitchen alone so you will have to entertain yourselves and drink more. He will come round and chat at the end of the evening and he is a... More

There was six of us to celebrate my birthday. The food was just 'out of this world' with flavours that I had not experienced before, so whatever you pick off the menu you will not be disappointed! Well done to the brilliant staff and our host Denis for a very special night. Long may you continue.

Came here on a Friday evening. The restaurant has recently been re done and looks fantastic. Food was equally as fantastic. The jerk chicken is amazing. Definitely didn't go home hungry. Staff are helpful and Denis is a wonderful host who makes time to come from the kitchen and greet all of the diners.

Super little restaurant in the centre of Norwich. Food was excellent and with Denis coming out to check that all was ok was a lovely touch. Would definitely recommend the Scallops starter
