I have dined at the Debut on several occasions; always as a member of a function and have never been disappointed.
The friendliness and eagerness of the students to please make each occasion very special and the quality and presentation of the food puts the Debut in the fine dining category.
Such a pleasure!

Thank John K

This was one of the best meals we have ever eaten. We have been to lots of top quality restaurants in Norfolk and paid a fortune for the gorgeous food we ate but this was something else. We went for lunch service and the menu was 3 courses for £9.95. Presentation of the food was excellent along with the service, unbelievable to think all of the staff were students! Looking forward to trying out the evening menu soon.

I've eaten at hotel school restaurants in the UK and East Africa and always loved the combination of good food and enthusiastic young staff. This time, it was a little different, because I was attending a dinner to celebrate the achievement of 26 College staff who'd completed the 'Three Peaks Challenge' to raise money for the student hardship fund. Most of the guests were connected with the college, which I suspect put the student staff under more pressure to perform than normal.

It was a great evening and the food was as ever awesome. Service was brilliant and always with a smile. My only gripe would be that there is no guest wifi, essential for those who like to share the moment online.

Debut gives you cutting edge contemporary food for the price of a meal in an chain restaurant. It's a winning combination for diners and of course a vital part of their training for the staff. Go! Soon!

We had a great lunch at this student run restaurant at Norwich City College. Surprised and impressed at how good the food was. Presentation and service were excellent as long as you appreciate these are trainees, at the tables and in the kitchen. Can't wait to try their evening menu.

Can't believe that this was our first visit as we have lived in Norwich all of our lives. The food was lovely apart from there was a mix up of how our steak was cooked, the people who ordered the two medium rare steaks received the rare steaks and vice versa and by the time we realised, it was too late to swap. We were also surprised by how posh it was and how very well we were looked after, if anything a little too much attention, whilst we were eating.
