What a rubbish gaff. When you talk to people they generally talk in glowing terms about this place but don't let that fool you. Its your generally type of grill/burger/family/run of the mill restaurant type place so wasn't expect too much; The service was not bad, the girls there do a nice friendly job but get the feeling they are...

Visited on Thursday, after many years and memories of a busy, bustling, vibrant atmosphere. When we arrived there were only 2 other diners there! We were a bit surprised at this - usually isn't a great indicator of a restaurant on an otherwise busy Thursday night in Norwich. However, we persevered. Service was rushed - we felt the staff really... More

A busy Saturday night but service was quick and attentive- you will need to book. Cajun whitebait to start was delicious followed by the meat paella (huge portion, really tasty, spicy chorizo) and cheese and chorizo topped chicken breast (fries were perfect, chicken really tasty). Good value for the size and quality of the portions. Loads of choice on the... More

A rot of lighting and colour greats the diner! It all adds up to a fun experience! The food is fresh and uncomplicated and tasty! You can hear it sizzling as it passes by! A popular venue for all ages... but it has a youthful feel to it! Service is friendly and efficient! Always a favourite spot for eating in... More

We visited Mambo Jambo because of the great reviews. However we were very disappointed by the food. The waitresses were lovely and very accommodating but the kitchen staff served us sloppy, half cooked, microwaved food. After recently visiting New York and eating Mexican food in Hell's Kitchen, you can see the style this restaurant is trying to emulate. Staff, atmosphere,... More

A good place to eat and drink, within a cool city location, I really love the decor. Food service is quick and to a good standard, really like the pulled pork. Regularly visit due to the awesome brownies.

Mambos is always a good place to go for a celebration. The staff are really nice and the food is good (good choice of cocktails too). The restaurant is always busy and has a nice atmosphere. Great location in the Norwich lanes.
