After months of coronavirus lockdown frustration, a Norwich restaurant has celebrated its fifth anniversary in style with 70 visitors. 

The Namaste Village on Queens Road changed most of its menu for an evening of good food, traditional Indian dress and entertainment on Sunday. 

Cookery classes kickstarted the celebratory day with 30 people learning how to cook the Indian way.
