This restaurant has been gutted and reborn and is primarily Turkish but do try it and see what you think....our food was good all cooked over charcoal . These are early days for the restaurant but the value and helping were good.

Use to been the main high street now it's loads of restaurants and shops with loads of different things it's nice to see another side of Norwich. The main and best thing I think is Epic Studios which has loads to offer and a very nice cafe.

It is about time some money was injected into this area to update it and turn it into the wonderful street that it could be. The retailers deserve better than this. I can remember as a child walking down that road and the wonderful individual shops that were available was great - I remember taking my doll to the dolls... More
