    Great experience as we have come to expect. We were welcomed (very important) and looked after by our smiling waiter Jama. Family event with ages from 12 to 80.
    Lovely food - chilli squid is a family favourite and did not disappoint. Usual drinks - mojito, refresher, beer and water, pasta, pizza and stuffed aubergine. Best pudding was the baked vanilla cheesecake. Good espressos. Altogether a lovely occasion and we shall be booking again.
    My only reservation is for 6 of us a 12.5% service charge seems a bit steep. We would tip anyway but prefer to choose our own.
    Thanks to Jama it was a really special occasion. Thank you.

    I just love going to Jamies in Norwich. I have never had a bad or semi bad meal there. The staff is always first class which to me shows a good top management team.
    Long may you stay here to keep me happy together with so many others.
    Thanks you all and a Happy New Year.

    Nice venue, some friendly staff, but overall dissapointed. No better than zippo or prezzo, far more expensive, and portions were tiny. Left out of pocket and hungry.

  • (((** 14 December 2017 by Julie Hollyer from Norwich

    Not as good as Cambridge although not been to either for a couple of years. Menu choices disappointing.

    We were initially given an incorrect drink, we were only given two desserts and had to ask for the third which we had ordered.
    When we got home and looked at the receipt, we had been charged for four desserts, we called the restaurant and had two options,1 for booking and 9 for any thing else, unfortunately despite four calls nobody answers on option 9 .I called again and chose option 1 and the call was answered, I explained that I had been over charged, ,and was told "sorry we are very busy and will try to get back to you next week" as I have not yet had a reply I called again this morning and surprisingly, there is still no answer on option 9.
    Over all very disappointing

    By the time we got our starters it was cold. For mains I had steak which came with fancy chips the steak was very nice but chip awful and to make things worse they don't even have vinagar what ever sort of restaurant does not have vinagar? Will not be going back!

    absolutely wonderful waiter trying to cope with too many covers. if it hadn't been for his phenomenal personality and energetic effort things would have been a lot worse

    we had a wonderful meal but had to leave before dessert as just couldn't wait any longer

    Courses arrived before previous course was cleared, drinks were delayed...etc etc

    more staff needed

  • (((** 13 November 2017 by Glyn Williams from Norwich

    Jamie is overall a positive dining experience but it is more style over substance.
    Price to portion size is a perennial issue. My rabbit pasta main course was miserly and had very little meat content, barely sufficient for a starter size.
    However it was very well made and the crispy polenta chips were a revelation. I have visited several branches and we use Norwich every couple of months.
    It is always busy and a victim of it, tables too close, amateurish staff always rushed albeit apologetic and pleasant.
