All the ingredients taste very fresh and the portions are big, we generally end up taking enough back home for a lunch for one or 2 of us the next day, and we don't... More

My husband and i are regular visitors. The food is always absolutely faultless & full of flavour. Occasionally service can be patchy, but whatever they might forget to do, it is always rectified immediately and courteously. A rare treat as some places "customer service" leave a lot to be desired. Visit for the food it is amazing & just remember... More

Decided to try the Chicken Satay starter, very pleasant. My companion had king prawns in filo pastry - they were excellent, especialy with the sweet chilli dipping sauce. My... More

My husband and I come here every anniversary. Always exceptional food with a friendly smile. This time we visited they had an offer on £10.95 for a 3 course meal! Such good value for money. Portion size is good and we always feel full afterwards. Highly recommend!

The food was the best Thai food I've had outside Thailand and the menu was extensive and everything delicious (we had the Set Menu A for 2). Lovely live Thai music and such a cosy atmosphere, being in one of Colchester's oldest streets... More

Went there during a weekday plenty of seats. We ordered a platter starter 2 curry dishes a soup and 2 noodle dishes and 2 portions of rice. Thinking it should be plenty for 4 adult to share. The portion sizes were so small for the price you pay. Only the noodles were of a decent size. Food was very nice... More
