Asian minimarket in the heart of Norwich

NOTE - we deliver in and around Norwich. Please use the 'contact us' page if you need food delivered to your door or if you’d like us to put an order together for you to collect from the shop


The Orient Express started trading as a small family business in June 2006. For Sophy the shop was more of a hobby at the time, as she didn't get paid for nearly 2 years!


Our products are all genuinely Asian and are usually better and cheaper than those offered by supermarkets. We pride ourselves in providing a friendly customer service, selling a product range which enables our customers to create real Asian dishes, and doing it in a way which is distinctly Asian.


The Orient Express is not a supermarket - it's an Aladdin's Cave of exotic ingredients, unusual smells and rampant colour!
