A bit rushed

A would have probably given this a three and half. I came with my son for a late lunch. Say down looked through the menu and knew what we fancied. We ordered our food and mains but also satay, beans and crackers hopping they would come out to nibble on before our meal. But within 3 minutes all the... read more

Came across this place by accident one lunch time. It was small inside but looks like it had been recently refitted to a good standard. The lunch menu was good value at about £10 with a drink. The food, Singapore noodldes in my case, was excellent. Really fresh crunchy veg and a nice kick to it. Service was quick and... More

Every time we've come in it has been really good and enjoyable. The food is very good and the look of the restaurant just make it all feel authentic and the service is great and quick. The crispy chilli squid is the best in town

Lovely food and service at lunch today, we had ordered within 5 minutes of arriving! Service was really fast too. Only problem was that gratuities couldn't be left by card and I had no cash on me :(

I went here on a recent visit to Colchester and it was recommended by my gourmet friend who has never taken me to a bad restaurant yet- this was no exception. The building is old- wooden beams and what I call medieval stairs, ie very narrow and winding- but we ate downstairs and I only had to brave the stairs... More

Good atmosphere and service. The vegetarian tofu and vegetables is very plain and not recommended. Having sides is a good idea and they are impressive- or the asparagus or prawn.

I ate in the North Hill Noodle Bar several times as a student, and I miss the food so much since graduating. The restaurant itself is small, so more of a date/one friend kind of meal and sometimes the tables are so close that you find you're sharing your date with 2 other strangers! It really is worth it for... More

I often visit the noodle bar. Find the food of reasonable quality, over priced but where isn't nowadays. The thing that I do not enjoy is being rushed. I like to sit down chat and decide in my own time what to eat and drink. It was fairly quiet when I visited today at 5pm. We arrived sat down, and... More

Time after time this place delivers exceptional quality freshly cooked dishes, great value, nice beers, specials board is always a treat. From the standard menu my favourite is the duck breast and rice with pak choi. Only downside is it's all over in a flash an the style of the restaurant means tables are small and not comfortable seating. But... More
