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.

I have been several times and the food and atmosphere has been great on each occasion. The only criticism I have is that you sometimes feel rushed as they need your table for the next booking and this can be a little off putting.

I am passionate about Indian food. I love the texture, the spices, the explosion of taste when done right. I have tried many of the Indian restaurants in Norwich and keep coming back to the MOS. Food is always awesome. Service is attentive, without feeling like you are under pressure to have your main, no sooner as the starter has finished. Recently had to eat upstairs, which does not have the aesthetic ambiance of the ground floor, but with good company forget as the taste buds are satisfied. I love this place and £65 for two with starter, main and drinks is not bad at all.

The upstairs room lacks atmosphere as it's so separate from the rest of the ground floor dining area. It was disappointing to be given a Gin and flat Tonic then, on the next drink order we asked for a Gin with a small bottle of Tonic - but we were again given a mixed Gin & Tonic with flat Tonic!

Fantastic food. One of the best indian meals we have had. Staff was friendly and attentive and we couldn't find any fault with our visit. There was a good variety of dishes and we would return in a heart beat.
