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.
Top quality, great service. I always look forward to eating at Merchants of Spice and it never lets me down, tasty and brilliant service.
Great restaurant, friendly staff and efficient service without feeling rushed. The food was excellent. The food on the menu looked delicious, if only I had room for 4 or 5 mains! Would definitely recommend, and will certainly be visiting again!
Excellent food and the usual great service
I booked online for a table of 12 at half 5. The food and service were superb. It was also really easy to book online. Highly recommend!
Food and atmosphere ate always first.class.
Some of the dishes had far too much chilli... no indication on the menu of how hot the dishes were.
Very good, as always.👍
Amazing food and service, best Indian in Norwich by far.
Thought that the decor was drab and dull. Needs brightening up. Felt the staff could smile abit more and be abit more friendly. I think we must have overstayed on the table time, the waiter said they needed the table so we felt pushed to leave. Our bill was £120
Great food, great service - my favourite place to eat in Norwich !
Lovely food and decor, very friendly staff
Great food and venue Only thing that needs improving is the service as pushed along even though well within the allowed 2 hours
Best Indian cuisine in Norwich and Norfolk. Please come to Australia next time you want to open another branch!!
Delicious food, good service and price.
Was by far one of the best curries ive had. The atmosphere was lovely And the service was top notch! Will definitely visit again when I’m in Norwich.
One of the better curry houses in Norwich for sure!
Excellent once again
Sadly the waiters are very unfriendly and almost aggressive,paying more attention to their earpieces than the customers.
Good food and excellent courteous service - best Indian food in Norwich
The Merchants never disappoints on service, food and drink. The best Indian restaurant in Norwich.
A superb experience from beginning to end! Great service. Good atmosphere. The food was divine - the best in Norwich! This is now the ONLY Indian restaurant I will eat in in Norwich ... it's that good!
The food was really tasty if not too spicy. ( Would have liked a little more spice) It took good 45-50 min for the food to arrive, which felt a bit long even though I appreciate the restaurant was full. But the food quality wise, I think it is really well prepared and enjoyed it very much. Everything we ordered was delicious !! Additional order of rice and nan bread came in seconds ! The staffs were friendly if not looking little strained due to the high volume of customers. The price is reasonable for the quality and the venue. My only concern was your 2 hour restriction - although you did not shoo us away, we did feel pressure to leave as soon as our meal finished. Which felt quite short given the long wait for the meal itself. It would have been great if we could stay longer, enjoy dessert and drinks.
Simply...the best Indian restaurant.
