Hi! I've been to Naka Thai for my friend's birthday. We had a great Thai meal same as in Thailand (I've been to Thailand before for a holiday). The staff were lovely and helpful. Very relaxing. We also listening to Thai live music played by a Thai guy. They do Thai live music every Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday . I... More

I went there last Thursday. The food was superb!, especially for the ribs and chicken satae. I love the sauce of the chicken satae as it was sweet and tasty. The rib was so soft that it melted in the mouth. Other dishes were not too spicy and just perfect. Yummy! The atmosphere was clean and cozy. The staff was... More

My daughter lives in Colchester and has been here on several occasions and recommended the restaurant to my wife and I. Staff made us welcome and the variety of food that was served was excellent, being vegetarian was no problem and there was a good selection of vegetable based dishes Highly recommend Jim Edinburgh

I've eaten in kebab shops with better food quality. The naka Thai has appeal on the surface, but unfortunately the food did not represent Thai food in a very good way. The service was average and a little bit uninterested in customer satisfaction. I got the impression that as long as you were bringing a fat wallet and a callous... More

We took our eleven month daughter with us when we ate here early in Saturday evening. The staff could not have been more helpful. When we asked if they could warm up some food that we had brought with us not only did they do it with a smile it was brought back in a thai bowl. The only downside... More

This is an odd thai restaurant that really cannot be recommended. I visited with a work colleague and used a taste card. The starter I had came very quickly and tasted very dry, so I suspect it was not fresh. We then both ordered a weeping tiger, which is a steak dish that I’d had before at other thai restaurants....

I'm from Thailand and some of my guests are Thai. We are fuzzy about Thai food in England. The food was great!!! and the service of that day was perfect! We agreed to serve reception drinks at 4.30 pm but we turned up almost an hour before the agreed time and Pat, the manager, said he and his staff were... More

I booked lunch a week ahead for a day and time when they open as confirmed by the person I made the booking with, their website and even the sign on their front door. Turned up at the agreed time to find them closed with no sign of life inside and no note on the door giving an explanation of... More

We visited this restaurant on 16 July celebrating the graduation of our son together with 2 other families (party of 13). It was a last minute arrangement but our late choice through trip advisor proved to be a real jewel. Great food, limited but carefully chosen selection of wines (we opted for the Marlborough region Sauvignon Blanc) and first class... More
