Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Colchester

Na-Ree Thai Restaurant

10 North Hill, Colchester CO1 1DZ, UK – 01206 560633

Excellent food, eat in or take out, well priced too. Not many Thai restaurants come close, we aren't local but often collect when we are in Colchester it's that good. If you eat in the staff are nice too! The spicy salads are worth a try.

Firstly, the food is just amazing and so are the staff, however it's so cold in there! We had a yellow curry and a green curry, both tasted so fresh and clean/healthy, plenty of rice too. The layout of the food was very nice as well, the curries were kept very hot by a candle underneath, my rice came in a china bowl with a lid and my girlfriends just in bowl. The only reason I knock i star off is because it's so cold inside, I know it's an old building but at least turn the heating on. It does affect the whole dining experience, I was too cold to take my jacket off and had no desire to stay after we'd finished. We paid and went off to a warm bar for few drinks instead. Despite this I would still recommend this as the Thai restaurant to go to just down to the quality and taste of the food.


11-13 Head St, Colchester CO1 1NX, UK – 01206 760344

Fantastic place nice vibe good food lovely staff

Aburi Japanese Restaurant

19 Short Wyre St, Colchester CO1 1LN, UK – 01206 769226

We love this restaurant and have been visiting since it first opened. But with 3 young kids we really don't get to eat out very often so when Aburi started doing delivery, hubby and I are over the moon. Yes, it's not the cheapest but Japanese food is often more expensive in this country. Nice generous portions and very authentic taste (I am oriental so I should know). If you eat in, the service is always very friendly and we have never had any problems with our deliveries either. Highly recommend this place 💕

Had a great meal, its a nice comfortable restaurant with friendly staff. A real joy when we have a chance to eat here.
