A new Indian restaurant in Norwich has shut its doors - but says it will reopen in the coming months.

Green Chilli, at 45 Magdalen Street, opened at the start of November in the former home of the Passage to India restaurant.

It serves authentic Indian and Bangladeshi food, with an 'unexpected nod to British favourites', its website says.

But on December 14 the restaurant posted on Facebook to say it was 'closed until further notice', apologising for any inconvenience.

And a note on the restaurant's window said: 'We are opening soon... Due to technical problem we are closed now.'
