Sometimes you just can't be bothered to cook and the only thing you want is a good takeaway.

With so many options in Norwich, it can be hard to pick one.

So, we asked Norwich Evening News readers for their recommendations and here are five of their suggestions.

1. The Bun Exchange, Exchange Street

Multiple readers suggested The Bun Exchange as the place to go for a good burger.

The restaurant offers beef and chicken burgers, wings, and flavoured nuggets with both chicken and vegan versions available.

Located at The Butcher Bhoy in Exchange Street, food can be collected from the pub or delivered within a two mile radius of NR2 4AY.

A takeaway service is available from the pub.
