Sometimes a restaurant is just "right". After a cancelled train, we cancelled, then rebooked, and the people at Blue Joanna couldn't have been more gracious. The service is fast and friendly. The beers are pub prices and the food, Asian influence but not precious about...it, is excellent. I really enjoyed it. And the darling daughter loves it. There is no higher praise.More

The perfect place to come where you can pick different things and eat a whole range of bits. The price is super affordable too, I just couldn’t recommend enough !More

Visited here several times and it’s not bad. Highlight is always the staff who are great. Food is OK but mostly deep fried. Drinks are good including a nice pint of mosaic. The atmosphere is one for the boomers not the cool kids (I’m neither...boomer nor cool).More

Amazing food, great service, fun atmosphere. But what is really great is that everything is gluten free and dairy free. It is the one restaurant I can go to in Norwich where I don’t have to even mention being coeliac.. no matter the follow up...stuff about cross contamination etc. If you are Coeliac or gf/df then I really recommend making a trip here, even if it is a long one.More

On Saturday 21st January we met up with our son and his partner for a birthday meal. Upon arrival we received a warm welcome and was shown to a very nice table by our host. All of our food choices were really amazing. The dishes...come tapas style, and we felt that the Asian style dishes on offer gave us plenty of variety. My wife is gluten dairy, and egg free and this was no problem at all, she could choose from the entire menu. The menu would suit a vegetarian or a meat eater equally. The restaurant is quite small, cosy, and was extremely busy, but we felt that we received brilliant service, atmosphere, and food. The whole evening was extremely enjoyable and we highly recommend and will definitely return ourselves. It was worth a trip from Cambridge! So thank you so much Kind regardsMore

Being coeliac, it was so fantastic to go to a restaurant, and be able to choose whatever you want! Everything on the menu is gluten and dairy free! I went with a friend, and we could both order the small plates to share without having...to worry about contaminating my food. The staff were extremely friendly, and helpful, and most importantly the food was really tasty! Really good value as well. Definitely recommend it to anyone, and we will return.More

Looking for a restaurant to accommodate a tight schedule, a vegetarian menu and a medical need, the off the charts service started over email and never flagged. There is something magical about an eatery packed at 6 pm. It felt like a warm hug after...the Friday rush hour bus journey. This is the place to try tofu for the first time for a melt in the mouth delight. The prawns are cooked to perfection. Great food, relaxed presentation. The staff were as welcoming and attentive as the best of hosts. What a find! Buses every 7 minutes from the railway station. Short taxi ride.More

Absolutely brilliant from start to finish. The boss managed to squeeze us in as we didn’t book and so glad he did. The food here is amazing, very different ‘small plate’ menu where the plates are far from small! Brilliant cocktails, brilliant staff, alll -...round brilliant. Make sure you book as you might not be as lucky as we were!More

Visited with two friends for a Christmas catch up and had the best time! We had a table full of tapas and wine - everything was delicious, especially the pork belly. This was my first visit but I can’t wait to bring family here!

This place was an absolute delight! The mango margarita was the perfect welcome, quickly followed by DELICIOUS mains (soft chicken tacos, melt-in-your-mouth steak, succulent chicken wings, tender stem broc, rice, deep fried squid, sweet pots). The atmosphere and music were as warm and welcoming as...Ecky and his team. Finished off with apple fritters and a chocolate banoffee pot, it’s a good thing we live so far away, or we’d be eating here so often we wouldn’t be able to make it through the door! This place is truly at the top of its game and a joy to experience. Thank you for a brilliant evening!More
