Best Thai food in Colchester. The others pale in comparison. I've had numerous takeaways and eaten inside the restaurant a couple of times. Food is freshly cooked, really good quality and delicious. Never had a bad meal here and the staff are always really friendly and welcoming, thank you Naka Thai!

Having eaten in restaurant before wanted to see if takeaway too was good. Am pleased to say that we all loved the food ordered, as always was top notch quality and really tasty - even received a couple of bottles of free that beer from the manager whom seemed like a lovely chap - will definitely be going back here...

We said we were hungry and in a rush. We arrived at 9.35, we were out of the restaurant at 10:10. Everything was fresh and not too heavy. Food was very nice. Decor bit 1980's New Romantic, but this is Colchester. Really pleasant staff.

Very nice friendly restaurant, a few of the dishes were a little more oily than expected, I consider this an okay thai but what makes it more appealing is the Taste card discount. Worth a visit if you fancy Thai.

I have known this place for many years under various changes of ownership. When it first opened it was one of the most popular restaurants in town serving great food. I have eaten since but never the same high halite. The table decor is white and purple with lovely clean linen and the welcome is warm and inviting. We thought... More

we came here for my husbands bday meal on 12th June using a groupon voucher offer. the food was more than what we expected and great service. Sticky rice was a little dry but overall was a great value for money with a choice of any listed wine (red,white or rose). staff were friendly.
