Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Arrived without a reservation and they fitted us in. Knowledgeable and speedy service and catered for lime intolerance beautifully. Pandora satay mushrooms as a special were a highlight and would recommend the mango marguerita without hesitation.😄😄

We picked Blue Joanna for dinner on a trip to Norwich for a friend's birthday. The experience from start to finish was brilliant. Quick response to our booking request. All the staff were friendly, helpful, knowledgeable about the menu. We ordered several dishes to share...all of which were delicious, cocktails were good too. Great value for money, great atmosphere and a fun experience. Thoroughly recommend trying it out.More

The food was delicious. The atmosphere was warm and lively but, crucially, not too loud. The team were friendly and happy. We had a great night! As the vegan in the group I found there to be lots of options, including specials that were varied...and really flavourful. Thanks!More

This was my first visit and I was very impressed with all aspects of the venue. The staff were very attentive & helpful and the place was clean & tidy. We had a wide variety of dishes and shared them around. They were all very...tasty, well presented and hot. We had sweets to follow, which were also nicely presented.More

Such a gem. When Ecky is in situ it is the most wonderful place in Norwich to eat. Great ambience, a pile of vinyls in the corner taking turns on the record player, amazing food, incredible cocktails. Cannot recommend high enough.

Booked a while back, two couples. When we got to the restaurant it was busy and we where put on the table in the window which was a bit chilly. Mentioned this to the staff and no problem, we where moved as soon as another...table left. Staff helped on the food choices and the food was great with a great selection and very tasty. Something about lots of dishes to dig into with friends with good food and drinks but for me its the staff here that add to the evening and a what a great evening! Restaurant its self is 'rustic' but a great atmosphere and sorry i cant be drawn from my 5 stars...thanks to allMore

We wish we live closer. Brilliant service with very knowledgeable server who recommended great cocktails and dishes. We had at least 10 different dishes between the four of us and happily had seconds on most of them (and did). It was so good to be...able to have Asian fusion dish without having to worry about our children peanut allergy.More

Having a lads weekend in Norwich, booked this place last minute and were delighted we did. Food was delicious, an interesting selection of tapas fusion executed well. We had the most expensive wine on the menu which was very palatable, but still reasonably priced. Service...was friendly, they were nearby when we needed them but we didn't feel rushed or hovered over. Very reasonably priced meal, delicious and morish tapas. Inventive fusion but without the fine dining prices. Would definitely recommend and I'll be seriously considering a return visit when we're next in townMore

Visited with my wife as we had read such good reviews about this place. On entry we were greeted by a member of staff and sent to our table, we were told she would come back for our drinks order in a few mins, 25mins...later my wife went to the bar to order our drinks as we had noticed we had been forgotten about as people that walked in after us were being served. We ordered our food and it came out promptly, all the food was very tasty with lots of different flavours to suit, in total we ordered 7 dishes which was plenty. My wife then wanted to try a desert, we asked the waiter for a menu but again we were forgotten about as 30mins past and it never arrived, we asked for the bill payed and left wondering if this was just an off night with the staff. We would visit again most definitely as the food was really good.More
