About the restaurant
Passage to India does not disappoint on its promise – it’s a quick route straight to the spices, traditions and unbeatable flavours of South Asian eating. However, the route it takes is slightly unusual compared with other Indian restaurants in Norwich. Sure, curry house classics are among the favourites here, whether rogan josh or a creamy korma, but Passage to India also offer a lot of exotic dishes that you may struggle to find elsewhere – the duck, marinated in a yoghurt-based sauce, roasted in the tandoor and served sizzling is a particular treat. In addition, the decor and atmosphere better befit a classy lounge or elegant eatery than a quick takeaway spot, with plush leather chairs, a mezzanine floor and wood-panelled bar. Passage to India is well located (on the corner of Magdalen and Saviours Lane to the north of Norwich’s city centre) and it’s among the safest of bets for quality, affordable and memorable Indian dining in the city.
