2 for 1 at Naka Thai

Relax and enjoy authentic Thai cuisine in this 300 year old historic Tudor building in Colchester. Although the building has been modernised, it still retains every aspect of its uniqueness and heritage.

The Head Chef, Nong Thongdonnoi, was raised and trained in Thailand and has over 25 years’ experience. His talents are proven through customer enjoyment and appreciation for his cooking ability and innate creativity. This inspires him to maintain the Thai culinary traditions, preparation and presentation in Naka Thai. The atmosphere is friendly and welcoming, and you can dine assured that no matter what the occasion is you will have a pleasurable dining experience.

Dear our valuable Tastecard customers,

It's Pat here from Naka Thai Colchester. I'd just like to let you know that we now have a Thai live music three times a week on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday until the end of December. Please come to visit us and enjoy our food, drink and music.

I'm looking forward to seeing you.

Pat

    Well I didn’t get food poisoning. But it wasn’t great flavour or quality wise. I’d never go back, not even for a take away and wouldn’t recommend it.

    The music was on the same cd loop of Dam Smith songs. It was empty except for a few other people, the Christmas decorations were still up.
    The meat was cheap and watery/chewy. The flavour of the pad Thai was disgusting, so much so that I left it. Other dishes were fine. Edible but not great. "

It has been a couple of years between my visits so I assume that in this time the management and/or chef have changed. Such a shame. "

    We chose this restaurant because of Taste Card, and though we were three people, I thought that at least I would save on one of the meals. Here is the bill http://goo.gl/Sk1a6U and as you will notice, when it all added up, it was certainly equivalent to eating in a restaurant without using the
    taste card.

    The food was nice and of good quality.

    The restaurant though was not of high quality, and if you have ever been to the Blue Elephant in Fulham, you will notice the difference, i.e. of poorer quality.

    It all comes down to how much would you pay for a three course meal in Colchester with a Taste Card. "

    I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, the staff are friendly and the owner who works very hard is extremely welcoming.

    But the food is why we go here often, I have not had a dish which I do not like and have sampled many.....the fact you can get it for 50% just means we go twice as often as we would normally.

    It's just a lovely evening out with excellent surroundings and very good food! "

    Well I didn’t get food poisoning. But it wasn’t great flavour or quality wise. I’d never go back, not even for a take away and wouldn’t recommend it.

    The music was on the same cd loop of Dam Smith songs. It was empty except for a few other people, the Christmas decorations were still up.
    The meat was cheap and watery/chewy. The flavour of the pad Thai was disgusting, so much so that I left it. Other dishes were fine. Edible but not great. "

    The food in this restaurant used to remind me very much of fresh Thai food as experienced in Thailand. However on my recent visit I was very disappointed by the quality and flavour of the food compared to how it used to be. It has been a couple of years between my visits so I assume that in this time the management and/or chef have changed. Such a shame. "

    The food was nice but the service was very slow. The wrong food to brought out to us and there was no apology and they just say 'we are busy'. Not a good enough excuse I'm afraid. Not be so greedy, and focus in the diners in the restaurant and not the take away. We won't be going back. "

  • Lawrence said: "Good, but expensive
    We chose this restaurant because of Taste Card, and though we were three people, I thought that at least I would save on one of the meals. Here is the bill http://goo.gl/Sk1a6U and as you will notice, when it all added up, it was certainly equivalent to eating in a restaurant without using the
    taste card.

    The food was nice and of good quality.

    The restaurant though was not of high quality, and if you have ever been to the Blue Elephant in Fulham, you will notice the difference, i.e. of poorer quality.

    It all comes down to how much would you pay for a three course meal in Colchester with a Taste Card. "

Would be nice if they run specials, as with any Restrant you visit regularly the menu can become a bit boring. But we visit it so often cos it's so good.
    Shame it's no longer 50 percent off. "

    I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, the staff are friendly and the owner who works very hard is extremely welcoming.

    But the food is why we go here often, I have not had a dish which I do not like and have sampled many.....the fact you can get it for 50% just means we go twice as often as we would normally.

    It's just a lovely evening out with excellent surroundings and very good food! "
