A COLCHESTER restaurant has been celebrated with a prestigious award decided by customer feedback, votes and online reviews.

North Hill Noodle Bar scooped a Blue Ribbon at the Good Food Awards, after being recognised for its food quality, service and value for money.

The beloved restaurant is situated in the heart of Colchester and provides traditional Asian cooking to its customers.

The awarding of the accolade comes just two months after North Hill Noodle Bar reopened its doors following a six-week refurbishment.

One reviewer on TripAdvisor said: “We have been going to the Noodle Bar for several years, and we were worried the recent 'upgrade' meant it might lose its cosy feel and service. 

“Guys, you've smashed it. The new room is beautifully done, tasteful, yet contemporary, and the make-over of the original space is super. 

“Your staff are consistently friendly and oh so efficient. 

“And lastly of course, the food is, frankly, some of the best I have ever tasted. Always piping hot, fresh and delivered in minutes. 

“Thank you, and well done. My wife and I will continue to hold this special place to our hearts.”

Another added: “A very good restaurant, the staff were helpful and friendly. The menu had a good selection, the food was tasty and piping hot. Worth a visit.”
