Oh My Cod, fish and chips in Colchester

75 Mersea Rd, Colchester CO2 7RB, UK – 01206 617071

I live a couple of hours away from Colchester, but visited here whilst staying at my auntie's. The food and prices were amazing and the people were lovely! The chips especially were so light and fluffy, the best I've tasted in a long time! Will definitely come again if I'm around in the area :)

Great fish and chips for the local community. Not going to win any awards but good cheap grub! Staff are always friendly in the man who runs a chip shop kind of way.


4 The Willows, Colchester CO2 8PZ, UK – 01206 544775

very hit and miss in 2018. When the lady is working Chips are extremely dry and cold (left out to long)! The food is meant to be fresh to order! she will try and palm you off with a bit of fish that has been sitting on the shelf for over half an hour quoting ‘it has just been cooked’ not impressed with the ladys bluntness, poor food quality and portion sizes.. if she is working now I unfortunately go else where. Although.. If you happen to go on a day or evening when the lady is not working the boys are great, fast, everything is fresh to order (chips nice hot and moist) and really polite. The fish unfortunately has skin on it. Apart from that as i said it depends really at the moment!

We have pensioners portions , more than enough and freshly cooked while you wait . Very tasty .

Chinese Takeaways

Phoenix Chinese Takeaway and Delivery Colchester

68 London Rd, Colchester CO3 4DG, UK – 01206 504560

Great Chinese food and highly recommended. Not as well known due to it being newer than the other takeaways, that said, good quality food and sauces. Standard options. Fast and efficient team. Good value for money. There is also parking at the rear and possibly to the side of the takeaway too. Overall, I can recommend with confidence.

Food is absolutely fantastic, good value for money. Car park at the back is handy too. Definately will be going back.

Beijing Cantonese

1 Greenstead Rd, Colchester CO1 2SZ, UK – 01206 795600

Best Chinese takeaway in Colchester, I have been going there since I was just a young kid and I'm now in my 30's.... This says a lot about the place, I wouldn't go anywhere else. Always delicious and lovely friendly staff.

Have used this Chinese for absolute years. We have now moved out of Colchester, but still travel in to the Bejing although having a Chinese in our village. The food is great "always" & the staff always pleasant. I have never ever been disappointed. Well done Bejing & Thank you

Shrub End Takeaway

3 Iceni Way, The Square, Colchester CO2 9EB, UK – 01206 542733

Can get busy if you time it wrong, but nice food. Consistency is key in fast food, and this place is regular. I've ordered many times, and each time the food has been good, hot and well presented. The menu selection is large and varied. Opening times are good, actually open seven days a week. The only drawback is payment is only via cash - credit cards not accepted. Thankfully a cash machine is opposite. If you do visit between six and seven on a Saturday night, prepare for about an hour wait ... and struggle to park in the car park. Overall though, niggles aside, the food is good and the staff are pleasant. Recommended.

Good food. Friendly. Great prices. Plenty of parking. Not the most inviting car park but there is a clear entrance once you know, in the middle.

Indian Takeaways

Sonali Indian Takeaway

22 East Hill, Colchester CO1 2QX, UK – 01206 867000

Ashiana Tandoori

181 Magdalen St, Colchester CO1 2JX, UK – 01206 570533

The food here is always excellent with very friendly service. Really lovely atmosphere with tables being a good distance apart so you don't feel crammed in. If you order too much food they box it up for you to take home so it never feels a waste.

The whole experince was very good. Ordered Chicken Pakora for starters, the chicken was very succulent. For mains ordered Chicken Jalfrezi, Garlic Chilli Lamb and Chicken Biryani. I have to pick out the Chicken Jalfrezi as the best of the dishes, a flavorful curry with tender juicy chunks of chicken in a spicy tomato sauce studded with stir-fried peppers and onions. The Chicken Biryani comes with a choice of side dishes, choose the Brinjal (Egg Plant) curry, which i really recommend. The portions where big enough for two people. The staff member who waited on us was very friendly. The prices where bery fair. Overall very satisfied with this restaurant.

Raj Palace

28 N Station Rd, Colchester CO1 1RB, UK – 01206 760920

Another lovely meal tonight with friends. Highly recommended. But do expect a wait especially when they are busy.

Quite a wait for the food, however it was worth the wait as it was very nice!

Takeaway Food

Five Guys

3, Greytown House, 144 High St, Colchester CO1 1SP, UK – 01206 762582

Typical for five guys food. Tastes good but isn't good for you. Rather expensive in comparison to other burger joints in the town. Restaurant is light and airy, however can get busy at times.

Amazing burgers... if you don't know check it out! Forget McDonald's, burger king... this is proper!


35/37 High St, Colchester CO1 1DH, UK – 01206 547096

Quick and easy with the new touch displays, normally somewhere to sit upstairs is pretty large. They also have a few tablets set up for kids on the ground floor. Never had an issue with service, waiting times or quality

Great price for a quick light meal. Lots of choice. Just doesn't always have a working machine for milkshakes, cold coffees and ice creams

28 Lightship Way, Colchester CO2 8FR, UK – 01206 867110
