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.
Only a reduced mark for atmosphere because with larger parties (there were 9 of us) the reverb from the low ceilings can make conversation hard if anyone has any hearing issues - we were sat downstairs, can't comment if that issue applies upstairs.
We had a lovely time, travelling all the way from London was well worth it, food, hospitality on point. Will definitely visit again and highly recommend this place.
Always a fantastic meal

Always fabulous food 👍
Wonderful evening , food and atmosphere perfect, thank you .
Amazing food and a lovely place to eat out
Fantastic night have eating there several times and am never disappointed lovely food good atmosphere can't fault it.
As ever, a fabulous meal. I brought friends who were new to the Merchants, and they thought the railway curry was one of the best curries they’d ever eaten.
The best in town.
Very disappointed with the experience. Our table was in an upstairs room full of large Groups who were particularly loud and very noisy. It was very difficult for our small table of six to even attempt to have any sort of conversation. The food was luke warm and the rice cold; after complaining, we got fresh rice but none of the curry dishes were re-heated.. All in all, not a pleasant experience and certainly the upstairs dining experience is NOT recommended
Excellent, interesting and very tasty meal.
Second time visiting and again it delivered. Truly fantastic food and service. One tiny criticism would be how rushed we felt with starter coming as we were still eating our poppadoms and then no sooner had we eaten our starter the main arrived no time in between courses. However food was magnificent.
Great service, superb meal.
Best Indian Restaurant in Norwich by a distance. Food great as always and lovely atmosphere. Nice full restaurant on a Wednesday night.
It's a good evening!
Delicious food, have been twice now would yo again
Best Indian restaurant in Norwich. Great service, and the Rabbit Bhuna is a must! Not cheap, but well worth it.
