The Noodle Bar is a fabulous place to eat. The atmosphere is inviting and friendly, the food is freshly cooked to order and its delicious. The staff know the menu and are ready to advise on the varied dishes available.
My only advice is don't order take out. We did it once and were very disappointed, congealed mess that didn't come close to the standard provided in the restaurant. The food just isn't anywhere near as good and the price is the same. We did complain and were sent some vouchers.
Having said that, I'd eat at the noodle bar any day, crispy squid, beef in black bean sauce, chicken redang, yummy!

We visited recently for lunch having been a few times before and thoroughly enjoying it , however on tis occasion it was very poor. The service as always was quick and the staff were welcoming and polite however being asked three times if we were enjoying our meal (twice by the same server) was just a bit too much. I ordered a dish from the specials that was seafood, spicy rice and crispy salad the rice consisted of purely small shrimps lacked any real flavour or heat and was very disappointing. The crispy salad was simply leaves in a deep fried basket drizzled with a little mayo. My partnere had sweet and sour chicken which she has had and enjoyed a few times before but she did not think it was as good as devious visits. Our table also looked directly into the kitchen and as the door was ajar throughout the visit I could see that the chefs were preparing fresh vegetables on a red chopping board which should be used for raw meat only . They then wiped it down with a cloth and started to cut raw chickens on the same board. Not a practice that should be going on in a kitchen but fortunately it was the veg first.
Overall a very poor visit and meal experience.

I have never eaten a bad meal at the Noodle Bar. If you ever go to Colchester you really must stop in. Walk straight on past the predictable chain restaurants on North Hill until you get to NB just before the church on the left hand side. It's got a great atmosphere, lovely staff, amazing food....what else is there to want. I'm also told the chocolate brownie is to die for so give that a go too if you have a sweet tooth!
