We literally found this restaurant on our walk back to our b & b. Wow what a find. Great little place which great service & amazing food. Traditional Turkish food all cooked from scratch. Great flavours & the most amazing hummus I've ever tasted. Next time we are in Norwich we will definitely eat here again x

I love this place for the food, the staff and the ambience! It is small but that's part of the attraction. They do vegan dishes and lovely Turkish wines. Always reminds me of my time in turkey! Shut for August and I miss them!

This is one of my husband and I favourite places to eat in Norwich not being a fan of chain restaurants. Always fresh and tasty and I love the atmosphere and gorgeous lighting. Came for our anniversary also and they catered to this very well with free desert and drinks.

We've been there three times now and have not been disappointed. We would much rather spend our money in an independent restaurant like this than in a faceless chain. Have to agree that some of the dishes are a bit pricey for what they are - desserts and coffee in particular- but that doesn't take away from the fact that... More

Lovely freshly cooked food and friendly efficient service. The only thing I would criticise is the cost of the meze dishes. They are rather expensive for what you get (although delicious). I would price them around the £3.50 mark.

So Yemek Yemek is a small, humble restaurant that specializes in home cooked turkish food. This is the first time I have been here however I have been to Turkey a couple of times so knew what to expect, Anyway we sat down for our meal and was served by what I assume is the owner of the place, he...

Wish there were more independent eateries like this makes a pleasant to see a family run business. Yemek Yemek has a relaxed, intimate feel to it, The menu is not extensive, but there is plenty to choose from. Good for vegetarians too. The meze platter was a big hit with us. Also the Turkish wine was very nice. Dessert, although... More

We actually ordered online from deliveroo so I can't comment on the restaurant itself, I'm sure it's lovely. However we were disappointed by the food portions we given, we ordered the 'Tavuklu Guvec' as one of our dishes which comes in at a hefty £13:35, when it arrived it came in one of those plastic containers which was only half...

Love this little family run Turkish restaurant. It's a great place for vegan and vegetarian food. The staff are always very friendly and it has a lovely cosy atmosphere.

After being here twice before and loving the food and the atmosphere, I convinced my family to try it (with the excuse that it was for my birthday). They weren't sure at all before we went, but also loved it. Even if the cuisine isn't your kind of thing (though I'm sure you'd like it), the great service and atmosphere... More
