Since a company called Deliveroo launched in Norwich last September, you can order a katsu curry from Wagamama or a gourmet burger from GBK at the click of a mouse and get it delivered by bicycle. But why not try something a little different? Here's a look at ten of the best independent eateries in Norwich you can order from on Deliveroo (in no particular order).

• Gonzo's Tea Room, 68 London Street

Don't let the name fool you, Gonzo's is much more than a simple tea room and while you would be denying yourself the pleasure of sitting amongst its eclectic décor if you ordered from Deliveroo, you would still be in for a treat. Their takeaway menu is made up of burgers, burgers and more burgers, (with some chicken wings thrown in for good measure) and will undoubtedly leave you feeling fit to burst if the size of their portions is anything to go by.

• Donnelli's Pizzeria, 17 Timber Hill

Ranked as the 15th best place to eat in Norwich on TripAdvisor, Donnelli's Pizzeria is serving up 13 different, simple yet authentic wood-fired pizzas for very reasonable prices.

• Chihuahua Burritos, The Mash Tun
