Great experience

This is our first time in Thai 1 and we must admit we had a great time. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The food was of good quality. The place was clean. We will certainly be back.

I discovered this fantastic place about a year ago though trip adviser and have been going there atleast once a week for dinner. As it's been flawless every time, with friendly service, lovely food, very authentic flavours, and great prices. I have been bringing my friends an family regularly and everyone just loves it. Fish cake for starters was stunning... More

Had a lovely time visiting although this was all down to the company! I was shocked by the staffs lack of allergy knowledge not even knowing let alone being able to advise on a gluten intolerance allergy. They were clueless. They didn't even give my child a menu when we sat down, no surprise when had no form of children's... More

Haven't been here for a while, but food still great. Staff always friendly and the place is always clean. There were 3 of us, we had 3 starters, 3 main and 2 desserts. Also 4 boozy drinks and 2 soft drinks and 2 coffee. It isn't cheap for Thai food, but the best in the area. All came to £80

We had a set meal for 4 of us, 4 beers and 2 soft drinks, totalling a final bill of £123...now I for one think this is very pricey for Colchester. Staff are very... More

Visited here on Saturday night with my partner, we'd been once before a couple of years ago and enjoyed so thought we'd go again. We booked in advance and glad we had otherwise don't think we'd have got a table. We were seated right away on arrival and our orders taken, our starter came quickly (which we loved! Mixed starter).... More
