“So much better than the alternatives”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Have been to Merge on a couple of occasions and both times found it to be a pleasant experience.

Nice decor, helpful staff and decent food that isn't full of grease and MSG!

Much more varied choice of food than most places too. Having all you can eat sushi is quite a treat. They also have much better sweet options than the norm. The chocolate fountain is always a winner!

“Best Chinese buffet in Norwich!”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

The Merge offers a great selection of different foods, including food for fussy children like waffles and sausages... this may seem strange, but when I recently visited with my sister and her small son it came in very handy as he would not have normally eaten anything!! The owner was very friendly and helpful, There is a chocolate fountain which the kids love. I think it offers the best buffet (especially for family's with younger kids) in Norwich.

“Great Family Restaurant”
Reviewed April 4, 2013

We've visited Merge at lunchtimes on several occasions. Our most recent visit with our three daughters (aged 5,4 and 2) was to celebrate our daughters birthday. As usual we had a great time, and enjoyed our meal. Staff were great: providing a small cake with a candle and videoed the 'Happy Birthday' song for us. The restaurant is nicely decorated and has a nice atmosphere.

As some of the other reviewers have commented not all the items listed in the online menu were available, but there was a good selection, and the pricing (£6.99 adult, £3.99 children at lunchtime) is great value, making it affordable for families. In addition to the expected starters and main courses, there was a nice selection of deserts: including fresh fruit, cake, jelly and our children's favourite the chocolate fountain!

“Great Food”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

I loved the fact there was some Thai , Chinese and other things to try. My five year old son even tried some of the cuisine and loved it!!! The service was great , my son even got a mini Easter chocolate bunny for good behaviour and the whole family ate to our hearts content! There was so much choice that I was full and still wanted to go up again! Will be going again very soon! Loved it!!!

“simply the best”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

why are people so mean? The service was excellent, plenty of happy smiling staff. Food was excellent, and lots of choice, i went to the first part of the food and saw chips and chicken nuggets etc and wondered why they were there, my 5 year old grandson soon put me right, he was very happy as he wasnt sure about the Asian food, having said that as he could eat a little of what he liked we were able to educate him on different foods, so now he doesnt want nuggets he now wants Asian!!! The atmosphere is good so we didnt worry about our child or anyone elses.
Thank you for a great time, we will be in again!!!
