“Good veggie food, cooked well and made interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

This was my third visit to the River Green Cafe, once again my friends and I had a superb meal. Everything on the menu looked interesting and appetising so it was difficult to choose. I went for the African Sweet Potato Stew with wild rice - brilliant. The service is great, staff are very attentive and friendly. Just check your bill, we were charged twice for our drinks on the first bill. It was sorted with no problem. I would say this is one of my favourite restaurants - and I'm not even a vegetarian!

“River Green Cafe, Trowse, Norwich UK”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Fabulous butternut soup!
The staff are a delight at the River Green. Nothing is too much trouble.
The food is correctly priced for good quality vegetarian or vegan fare,(unlike many overpriced mushroom risottos in pubs and restaurants around), always fresh and well presented!
What a buzz to have endless choice that I can eat!!

You do not need to be a vegetarian to come here as you have a great choice of tempting dishes.
But be warned: Vegetarians do not eat fish, of course, so don't expect fish, birds or molluscs here!

“Fantastic Vegetarian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2012

Loved it here, really pleasant atmosphere, light and airy restaurant/café area. One of the best veggie burgers I've ever had and a fantastic Baileys sundae to finish the meal off. Reasonably priced too.

“Vegitastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Beautiful location in a great spot on the outskirts of Norwich, with off street parking. Vegetarian restaurants are rare in Norwich and this is a god send. Really friendly staff, good and varied menu, pleasant decor. Took advantage of the cafe side by having tea and muffin which were both very pleasant. Will go back with our daughter who is vegi (but fussy), when we spoke to the staff about this they said just give them a call and they can sort something out no problem. Can't wait to go back for an evening meal.

“good food, clinical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

the food here is very good, they will change things as all food prepared fresh, they do a very good avocado salad, which I have without the kiwi and no dressing, plenty of choice. They also now have a childrens menu which is good as some of the main menu fare is a bit too exotic for some children.
the service is fairly good and efficient.
the place lacks atmosphere.
do give it a go as the food is excellent
