About The Merchants of Spice Colegate
A restaurant born out of a passion to re-define the Indian dining experience in Norwich.
Long awaited fine Indian dining for a fine city. The team at The Merchants of Spice are sure to make your experience a memorable one. Set in a historic venue, a stones throw away from the heart of the city in Colegate, our restaurant has gone through extensive renovation to achieve an elegant and naturally relaxing ambience. No attention to detail has been spared, from the custom made furniture, the selection of exclusive and unique Signature Dishes down to the choice of crockery.
We use only the finest ingredients with authentic herbs and spices to flavour each dish which is a master piece for you to enjoy and is complemented by our first class service.
Lovely food, attentive and helpful service and a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere - will definitely be back again.
food was extremely oily, we had veggie bhuna, bombay potatoes, railway curry, rice and two naan. The naan were shining with ghee - too much, and there was a layer of oil on top of each dish, I had to spoon this off into an empty dish. I didnt feel it was worth the £40 we paid for the meal. I didnt want to complain in the restaurant because the waiting staff were very nice. In addition to the very oily food, we were in a basically empty restaurant, but the staff decided to seat a couple in the table directly next to us. They were both quite drunk and made me feel quite uncomfortable. I would suggest that if there is space, you dont push people to sit next to each other if there is the option to spread people out a little. I think the food in Merchants 2, is much better.
Great food, magnificent service, calm and clean. Staff is very kind. Will came back again and again.
Delicious food which was enjoyed by all members of our party - we had various dishes and shared them between us. Each dish as good as the other. My only negative point is that with the staff there is always a feeling of being rushed, none were very personable when we visited.
The service was excellent and the staff very helpful Unfortunately the food was not up to the previous visits made the nan was undercooked and the coffee cold
Fantastic service all round. The food was outstanding. I will certainly be booking to eat here again .
