The Merchants is tucked out of the way in the Colegate area of Norwich, previously an established drinking house it is now a very well decor'd Indian Cuisine restaurant.
6 of us arrived without a booking and we were sat almost immediately.
Although it was a wednesday evening it was surprisingly busy with a steady flow of traffic through the door.
The food was great and reasonably priced, swift service but never the impression that the staff were hanging around the table waiting for you to finish.
We all ordered a different dish and all arrived at the same time and spot on the order, taste was fantastic and potions were very good too.
One of the best Indian restaurants in Norwich at the moment

Thanks to all the Staff and Chef's at the Merchants for a great meal

We chanced upon this restaurant when we couldn't get in to the Last Wine Bar. Service was a bit awkward, with a bit of a language problem, but the food was very good. They fit us in without a reservation on a Saturday night, and we did enjoy ourselves.

Food was delicius and the decoration is well above average. Only the waiters were a bit arrogant. But it didn´t spoil our evening.

An upmarket Asian eatery with good food. But good isn't good enough, and waiting staff, please, I know your job is probably long hours but a smile costs nothing.

Second visit and not my last beautiful menu and friendly atmosphere. Even though they had forgot to write down when we booked over the phone and were not expecting us they apologised and jumped to fit us in. Lovely evening and great food!
