Star Chinese Buffet
Restaurant & Bar
of India Restaurant
Welcome to mo4, we hope to help you with
information, reviews and let you know what's happening in the area of
Norwich, Norfolk and beyond.
Lounge, very close to the city centre of Norwich on Tombland, a very
popular area for bars, restaurants and great food!
This has become one of my favourite curry houses in Norwich for Indian
food. The Spice Lounge hasn't always been there, it was once a book
store, I believe it was called the black horse book store - was that
The prices are very competitive here and you're guaranteed for a good
knowing that you are not paying over the odds for a meal makes it even
more enjoyable. The restaurant looks very modern, and the decor is
great, the entrance is stunning not what you'd expect for the usual
curry house - it's certainly worth a look, look out for the water
feature while you wait until you're escorted to your table.
As you'd expect from a curry house, they serve a
wide range of foods such as Korma, Madra, Rogan Josh, Vindaloo, Balti
and all the other
usual favourites, of course if you're not use to a medium to hot
then there is a choice of mild curries available too. If you're amongst
large party from work for example and not really into curries, then you
even have a choice of some english dishes if need be.
As I mentioned earlier the Spice Lounge has a very welcoming entrance
to the restaurant, choose to have a drink and stand or sit down if you
prefer, the staff don't mind, they are friendly and chatty and
certainly make you feel comfortable.
The restaurant is the next level up which you can see from the ground
floor which helps to give this place a great atmosphere, along with TV
screens and appropriate music.
The seating is varied, round or square table depending on the amount of
people in your party, the furniture is modern and doesn't really quite
suit a curry house, but I really like it. It makes you feel as if
you're at a more expensive restaurant.
When I go to this curry house, I have been very partial to a
Balti, I do like this with chicken, but I usually pick the chicken
tikka option, and I ask for my Balti 'madras hot'. Now this isn't a
standard dish as the Balti is usually mild, but this is such a nice
dish I just have to have it made my way, and the staff here are happy
to ablige. I even ask for a keema naan instead of a plain naan which
comes as standard with this Indian dish. If you're into hot curries,
then I certainly recommend the Vindaloo, very tasty!!
All the usual poppadums and onion bajis are available for starters and
side dishes, and there is a great choice of starters available, and all
washed down with the option of nice cold traditional Indian beers such
as Cobra or Kingfisher - of course only for those aged 18 and over!
Even if you haven't tried curries before in a curry house, then why not
give it a try, I'd certainly recommend this Indian restaurant and I
certainly make a point of continuously going back for more. You can
find it on Prince of Wales
Road, Norwich - very close to the city centre.
So if you
fancy a curry at a restaurant with a great decor and surrounding, then
here is where you want to go. It's best to book a few days ahead
especially for the weekend. To book call The Spice Lounge
on telephone number 01603 766602. Don't
forget to tell them that mo4 (Mark Ovens) sent you!
