Welcome to the thai 1

Situated on East Hill in Colchester, the Thai 1 Restaurant is the longest established Thai restuarant in Britain’s oldest recorded town.

We pride ourselves on serving only the best in truly authentic Thai dishes, all freshly prepared and cooked from locally sourced suppliers by our highly experienced Bangkok-trained Thai chef’s.

“Thai 1 ticks every box!”

We first visited the Thai 1 for a family gathering, but it has since become our favourite takeaway and restaurant in Colchester! Such an amazing variety of flavours across the menu and the lovely restaurant with attentive waiting staff make it an unmissable dining experience.
