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.

Having left a previous review on your Facebook page I just want to reiterate how pleasing it is to see your very high levels of service maintained,staff cleaning tables between courses and enough of them to ensure someone is always on hand to respond to any requests or queries. Food as always was excellent for our table of five and I particulary appreciated that you accommodated my request online for a window seat,that doesn’t go unnoticed. One final thing,to discover you now have an ale on drought was hugely pleasing for me,I have to say I really struggle to drink the usual lagers personally,far to gassy. I hope you will continue to have an ale available in the future,made it a perfect evening for three of the five of us attending. Keep the standards high,it’s always appreciated 👍 Neil Durrant

The food was very good, really well made and well cooked dishes, a step up from some of the other curry houses in Norwich. The restaurant was clean and smart.

Beef dish tasted of cardamom and poorly presented for what should be a signature dish. My wife’s Lamb Railway curry had no flavour and some meat chunks were tough and had sinew. They have kindly replaced the dish but sadly not any better. Shame as nice restaurant and atmosphere in lovely part of Norwich

The Railway lamb curry is to die for and really guys the service is five star, funny, cool attentive staff who look like they actually enjoy being great hosts. Give them all good end of year bonuses it's what makes your restaurant the best Indian in Norwich.

Excellent food, one of the best curries I have ever had (And I've had a few) My guests also loved their food. The restaurant was rocking, and it made for a great atmosphere. Great value for money. Couldn't fault the service. All in all a ten out of ten evening
