3. Spice Valley

Where: 5 Magdelen Street, Norwich, NR3 1LE

Located in a Grade II listed building on Magdalen Street, Spice Valley was another restaurant popular with our readers.

Its menu includes classic dishes such as Tandoori Chicken and Jalfrezi, as well as more speciality dishes such as Quail Tandoori and Mussel Sukka.

The restaurant offers both in-house eating and online ordering for takeaway.

4. Duke of Delhi

Where: The Mill Inn, Ipswich Road, Norwich, NR15 1UB

If you're willing to travel a little further out of the city centre, the Duke of Delhi is well worth a visit in Saxlingham Thorpe.

The takeaway and restaurant is open between 5pm and 11pm everyday except Monday.
