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.
Food was amazing,hands down best Indian food I have ever eaten! Restaurant was lovely and staff were really lovely and attentive.,only negative being that we felt slightly rushed in that if one of us had finished before the other the one who's finished would have their plates taken away before the other person had finished other than that everything else was perfect
As a regular customer with me family I can highly recommend this restaurant for an amazing meal the quality of food is superb along with a lovely ambience within the restaurant. The staff are so friendly and attentive. Definitely the best curry to have when you are in Norwich. Thank you and see you again soon.
Food excellent as always.
Excellent as usual
Lovely food & great service
Have always returned here due to high quality service and attentive to detail. ... not this time I’m afraid to say. Our time there was rushed, somewhat pushy with ordering even before our entire group had arrived. The meals would also seem like they’ve reduced in size. Shame really.
Never lets me down. The best curry house in Norwich.
Had a lovely evening, delicious food and efficientservice.
Great food every time!
Great evening out. Food is amazing and service exceptional. Definitely the place to eat curry in Norwich.
Excellent food and Brilliant service! One of favourite Indian Restaurants in Norwich.
We had an excellent evening. All 4 of us enjoyed it. Only problem was that the noise was such that I couldn't hear the conversation we were having well (I wear hearing aids).
Great food and value
Brilliant service and food as always
Poor service, leaning over customers to place food, mumbled communications, napkin placing which disturbed customer unnecessarily... more process driven than customer satisfaction. food was good. Charged for pickle plate which was taken away before it was finished. Table clearing dropped curry into glasses.
Lovely meal very friendly staff
Great meal, every dish tasted unique which doesn't always happen in an Indian...
We came here on recommendation and were not disappointed as the food and service were amazing. We will be back. Thank you
We enjoyed a delicious meal and excellent all round service . Will definitely visit again .
Very enjoyable food, especially the prawn puri starter
Service was terrific and food looked and tasted good. However, during the night after the meal I got severe diarrhoea so wonder if kitchen hygiene is poor.
Great venue. Food was excellent & service was very good- although I think one waiter was training as he delivered our dishes without stating which was which & left the table rapidly appeared to have burnt his hand in the Balti dish. I think he was okay as he cleared the table later.
The service is very professional and prompt, the food is amazing and is definitely a favourite restaurant of mine in Norwich. Highly recommend!
The best Indian restaurant in Norwich. I had my favourite Lamb Railway Curry - quite superb! I had this dish in a very good restaurant in Shimla in India and the Merchants dish is the better version.
