James Jukes (JukesyTV): Oh My God!I had a double Chicken and Cheese Wrap a few weeks ago, and it was that good, I creamed in my calvin Classics (Yes they have many holes in them as I prefer to spend my money on expensive video games instead, roll on Christmas Grandma).Anyway the staff were amazing and even one of the male staff flirting with me (Marc).

Address: 59 High St, Colchester, CO1 1DH, United Kingdom

Telephone: +44 1206 570420

Business type: Brazilian restaurant

Preto Brazilian Steakhouse: what do users think?
Riordan: Went for an Anniversary lunch with the Mini Rodizio Grill. The buffet selection is always kept topped up. I like the change from ordering the sides to helping yourself to what's available, better portion control. The meat from the grill is always delicious. My partner filled up on sirloin steak despite not being much of a steak person usually.And finally, the Caipirinhas are delicious!
Katherine Alderson
Katherine Alderson: Sadly despite 2 recommendations it fell very short, not because of the food necessarily but the service was poor by waiting staff - max 30% capacity so hardly busyMeat was forthcoming as part of the experience, but no do you want drinks, we had to seek them out, by the time dessert was offered we were passed the concept, no one asked if we wanted ought, literally shoved in the corner and told where the buffet bit was.. even had to search for the bill after an hour of waiting for some attendance as had given up on any offer of drinks, desserts, check it was ok the clearly didn’t want to be there staff! Also they clearly didn’t appreciate the ‘optional’ service charge at 12.5% being declined, despite leaving 5% for the abysmal service yet 3-weeks ago at another restaurant we not only paid the optional service charge but left an extra £20 as the table service was 200% extraordinarily fabulousOptional service charges are optional and will only be paid for good service which it was not in any sense of the imagination and spoilt the restWell done to the young curly haired lad, he was greatVegetarian options: Not enough options for £22 and not clearly labelled
Ruben Dougall
Ruben Dougall: Service was good, food was great, meat was delicious, nice selection of various Brazilian foods at the buffet, different foods that you wouldn’t normally try elsewhere. Only issue is it’s quite pricey (even more so after the 12.5% discretionary service charge) but you do get what you’re paying for in both quantity and quality.
V V: To be honest, the place went downhill and I don't understand why. The floor was oily just by the salad bar which I find quite dangerous. The meat was ok-ish but we didn't enjoy it as much as we used to before.This was the second time I told myself to give this place another chance but sad to say we won't be returning unfortunately...

Amanda Price: Haven't been with the kids before until tonight and they were great with them. The kids absolutely loved it, as did we. Can't fault in any way - meat cooked to perfection, regularly refilling the salad bar and sides. Very enjoyable meal.

Karlie Day
Karlie Day: Was recommended to try out Preto. Was a bit dubious as my 7 year old is 'beige boy' when it comes to food. However kids ate for free, so thought we'd have nothing to lose. A great experience for him to try new foods.Everything was delicious, and looked appetising and I'd definitely return. We didn't try the rice, beans, chips etc. It was all about the meat for us. We were an hour early for our booking but nothing was too much trouble. Staff were really friendly and chatty.

Keith Axon
Keith Axon: Been to a few Brazilian restaurants previously and I like the concept of hot food, carved tableside and allowing you to have as much or as little as you so chose. The meat was well cooked well presented and regular.However, the price charged is a bit on the steep side. I've had the same for less, per head. Does the cost reflect the food and service, in my opinion, no it doesn't, and coupled with a service charge already added, I think it's overpriced.

Pete Gore
Pete Gore: We've been here a few times and every time we decide to come back, we say to each other, it'll be better. Unfortunately not, this place is proper grubby, dirty doors and toilets and very, very unhappy staff. The service charge is a joke given there was only two of us. Food is half decent but feels rushed and lacks any experience. Very sad. Won't come back again. Wifmne is rubbish also.

David Allen
David Allen: Easily one of my favourite restaurants in Colchester. Always a warm welcome, the food and drink are outstanding. Particularly the Edges brown and the home made bread with the starters. I've eaten here as a couple, with family, friends, and colleagues on various occasions and always had an excellent meal. A must visit restaurant for anyone in Colchester.Vegetarian options: Plenty of veggie options available and clearly marked on menuKid-friendliness: We've taken children on many occasions, friendly reception and accessible kids menuParking: No restaurant parking but plenty of local public carparksDietary restrictions: Staff are knowledgeable about ingredients, just ask!
Tobias Rowe
Tobias Rowe: ’ve now visited Doga on a busy Saturday night with a large party and on a quiet Tuesday night as a couple, and I can’t wait to go back again. The food is absolutely INCREDIBLE, served in good time and hot off the grill. The quality of the menu matches the prices; it is good value and there is a wide range of choice. The owner is also lovely: she happily welcomed us as a large, tipsy party as a late booking and also spent time talking to us as a couple. Waiting staff are also polite and efficient, even opening the door for us as we left. With a clean, modern decor and warm evening ambience, this is the Turkish restaurant to go to in Colchester.

The lunch set menu is very good value for good quality food and generous portions. Really enjoyed the kunefe dessert. Warm owner and polite staff. I'd say it was the best Turkish food I've had in Essex having tried Turkish restaurants across the county - in the same league as Turkish restaurants in Harringey. I'll definitely be back.Kid-friendliness: Very welcoming.

Younis Abdulla
Younis Abdulla: Good pasta place. Only reason they loose a rating is they made an error with the order which meant everyone else was done with their food before my dish even arrived. I ordered a vegetarian dish and the dish they gave me had chicken almost took a bite before I noticed there were pieces of chicken. They apologised but didn't do much to rectify the error other than making the right dish. Kind of felt like they didn't care about the error they made.Would have expected more considering the prices.

Perfect dessert option without being expensive or too much.Highly recommended for anyone popping in for lunch or booking for a group in the evening!

Being a large party we had pre-ordered our food which was served up hot, tasty and very well presented. All the waiters/waitresses worked very hard all night and were very polite and helpful. The Chef came out to chat to all her customers to see if we enjoyed the food to which I thought was a lovely touch. It was nice to see a restaurant doing really well. This is a must try!!

Katrina: Wow, this place is absolutely excellent! The service was a little slow, but it seemed some of the staff were new, and it was a busy Saturday night so this can be forgiven. The range of fish specials was great, alongside traditional pizza/pasta, and the lobster & scallops dish I had was better than those I’ve enjoyed in high end restaurants - at a more reasonable cost too! Highly recommended, a hidden gem.

Leon Langrish

Great service from friendly staff and the food was great. Definitely recommend getting some good wine here too all for a very reasonable price. This was my first time here but I'll definitely be back now if found it.
Michele Murphy

Em-Elle Kay Gee
Em-Elle Kay Gee: I'm very surprised at all the excellent reviews which makes me think perhaps we went on a bad day.My husband booked this restaurant for our anniversary and we were looking forward to trying somewhere different. From the outside, the restaurant looks run down but the inside was much nicer. We were surprised to see that it was virtually empty at 7.30 on a Saturday evening but the staff sat us right next to a large table. As the tables were cramped together, it was difficult to get out to use the bathroom. The waitresses looked bored and didn't smile once in the whole time we were there. The starters were OK, nothing spectacular I ordered the seafood risotto which tastes like rice, tinned tomatoes and seafood. Not very exciting at all. My husband ordered a rare steak which was overcooked. The whole meal, including paying the bill took 45 minutes as there was no time to pause between courses, as soon as our cutlery was down, the next course arrived. The bill came to over £100 which we thought was steep given the good was OK at best and the staff were not particularly attentive. Overall, a disappointing evening and will not be returning again.

shara hand
shara hand: We were walking past the other day & we were very hungry. The menu looked lovely so we went inside intending on eating there but as we walked in it STANK of tobacco. I’m sure the food would have been lovely but the smell was so off putting we felt it would ruin the taste of the food as smell and taste are connected. I cannot see anyone else saying this in the reviews so maybe this is a new thing or a one off? But I felt I wanted to give you feedback on why we didn’t stay as the restaurant seemed empty and it’s such a shame as we definitely would have stayed had it not smelt like someone was smoking in there!

Emanuela Veninata
Emanuela Veninata: This old fashioned family restaurant tries hard to project Italian food values, but misses the mark by offering below standard quality and cooking. We had a fritto misto, which was ok, followed by home made cannelloni and lasagna (home made perhaps, but not well executed...) and some overcooked sword fish with a nice salad. It was a Sunday lunch devoid of any pleasure. Call in Gordon Ramsay!

Tracy Rutkin: Lovely time at bottomless brunch with the family, beautiful food plenty of cocktails.
Richard North
Richard North: Steak was really, really good. Service was a little bit slow, but we're always in hurry. But when we said that they hurried it up. They did a special dish for my fussy 9 year old.

Matt Covey
Matt Covey: £29.99 for an 8oz fillet which is fine but the gravy is £2.50 and the vegetables are £3.50 extra. A main corse should include everything.
Dean Street
Dean Street: We’ve been twice in 2 months…the wife is obsessed with coming back. Great food great drinks great staff. Bottomless brunching is the way
Casey Thurston
Casey Thurston: The food was overpriced for the amount you got but was good quality and tasty. The service was a joke, got a drink, meal after fourty minutes in a quiet day. We didn't get asked for any other drinks, how our food was anything, staff seemed more interested in chatting with each other at the bar.

Sammy Dyer
Sammy Dyer: Would never go again. The food was good but the service was very poor, had to ask for a drink, waited over half an hour for someone to take our order and had to keep finding staff if we needed anything, they seemed more interested in talking to each other rather than serving their customers.
Leanne Hague
Leanne Hague: Nice chilled out place. We went for bottomless brunch. Only one vegan option (burger) but it was lovely, not sure how much there is outside the BB menu. Waiter always made sure we had a drink. Be careful on the stairs on the way up to the toilets as they are quite steep and narrow.Food: 4/5|Service: 5/5|Atmosphere: 5/5 …More

Nando's Colchester - Tollgate: what do users think?
Poppy Macmillan
Poppy Macmillan: Really good customer service especially from our waiter Ezra who made us feel really looked after
Edwin Mercado
Edwin Mercado: Disgusting attitude from the lady at the front door taking names of people writing them on the list. We came around 5:45pm today 12-2-2023 she ask my wife’s name and told us about 30 minutes waiting and we said that’s fine with us and sat in the waiting area.After a while there are more people arriving and the lady who is obviously assigned to sort out and writing the names of arriving customers waiting to be seated asked and wrote down their names on the lists,which of course will be behind my wife’s name because we came in first ahead of those people!! But when this lady was calling out people’s name to be seated we noticed that she called out first a couple of people that obviously came behind us to be seated on the tableFurious we just decided to go out and we will never come to that place or any Nando’s restaurant again.
Michelle L
Michelle L: Awful experience here. RUDE MANAGER. We was served everyone’s food apart from 1 of us. We finished our food and the other persons had came out. We waited half an hour before questioning it, the manager said it’s not her problem and the food will come when it’s ready, they then told us they will have to put it in a takeaway bag as our time at the table was up, we had no apology from the manager or other staff. Manager was so rude we was all shocked (tall woman with pink shirt and blonde hair with highlights at the front)
Kare Maina
Kare Maina: Went in to get a table and was waiting in the queue. Two other people came and passed me as if I was not there whilst the employee saw all these but didn’t say anything instead he went on to serve them. I was actually disappointed but didn’t complain about it as I wanted to confirm if there is a different or new procedure that I wasn’t aware of. When I asked the employee about it he went on (with an attitude may I add) to ask if I wanted to book a table or not?! I was shocked since he just needed to answer my query then I answer. When I repeated the question he again with an attitude asked if I want to wait in or out. There is a reason people queue and to override this is out order and to add insults by having an attitude also doesn’t help if you want to exercise a power that’s not the place. Disappointed and will not be recommending it.

Adrian Warnock
Adrian Warnock: Very very disappointed to arrive and see this huge empty space where their outdoor tables used to be. Covid hasn’t ended for people like me and outdoor seating is like step free access to me. I’m so fed up of society ignoring the needs of the severely immune compromised. Why on earth get rid of one of the few places where it’s safe for people like me to venture out of our sheilding. Yes for us it’s still as dangerous as it was in March 2020. Why can’t organisations like nandos be considerate and allow us to be part of society instead of isolated in our own homes.
Sarah Alexander
Sarah Alexander: Took my partner here at the weekend and I was a little worried about the restaurant being wheelchair friendly. I explained this on the phone and the lady who answered said not to worry and come down. We was greeted at the door with a big smile and the lady gave us a choice on where we would be most happy which just got everything started on great foot. Food was lovely! 10/10
Shirley Willsher
Shirley Willsher: Friendly staff, food as expected, no hot drinks but a choice of cold drinks as refills. Found some of the tables a bit too close together. Only one toilet, which also accommodates disabled, it was clean and stocked no problems. All in all ok experience.
James Weston
James Weston: Place was filthy the we sat on the back row of tables and every table on that row was left full of old plates and glasses. Food took over an hour to come out and everything except the chips was cold and dry. 2 tables came in after us sat down ordered their food ate their food and left before we even got the halloumi starters.There was no coldslaw and all the cold drinks were out of order except for the coke.Staff were stood around talking and not clearing tables even when bringing food to us they didn't consider taking the dirty used stuff off the table next to us back to the kitchen where they were heading. I'm honestly not sure whether this has anything to do with the massive amount of takeaway orders they have going on as there was clearly a lot or if its just incompetence.Either way service and food was shocking.
Andrew Donnelly
Andrew Donnelly: Popped in earlier to have a cheeky Nando’s with the famalam.As always the service was efficient and speedy and friendly even though it was extremely busy.The food was superb and the chicken was to die for, I like mine xtra spicy 🌶 where as the rest had herb 🌿 and garlic .You cannot go wrong visiting this restaurant at Tolgate.Parking: Car park is extensive but can get busy in peak times which can make it difficult to exit Tolgate.
Nishad Basheer Majitha (Nish)
Nishad Basheer Majitha (Nish): Very busy place. Some staff are very grumpy. Delay in getting food as well.
Diana Ashcroft
Diana Ashcroft: Ended up having to ask for our glasses as waited & waited. Then didn't bring the correct amount. Wine missing & had to ask for that. We were table of 4 & ordered Two persons each and ended up eating not together as one half of our party had to wait so long. Whole idea is to eat together. We ordered within 2 mins of each other.
Justine Hogan
Justine Hogan: As you'll probably know I'm a girl that loves her food.....Read my many reviews & this fact is clearly true!So here we are at Nandos Tollgate (it's not too far from the mega huge Sainsbury's)I've been here a number of times to collect food, I've never dined in (as yet).The restaurant is well thought out with the open kitchen one end as you enter & the bar is on the right hand side with the rest of the space given over to tables.It is quite big as it goes.The food is as ever very very good.I do highly recommend it.I always have the same things,Starter; Halloumi with sweet chilli dipSunset burger with lemonNandos garlic bread & fries on the sideI share the food as it's too much for me on my own, whilst I love my food I don't have a huge appetite.So I usually take a little of everything & I'm happy as a piggie in his sty!!We all have our own favourites....Enjoy!!Love always Justine xXx StyleOutYourHome
DJ Samuel Hann
DJ Samuel Hann: Great restaurant as there is parking outside (limited to 3 hours) situated just off the a12 in a retail park. The staff were very polite and helpful plus who can go wrong with a “cheeky nandos” . Restaurant and toilet always clean and tidy.
Kelly: We have always had fab service and amazing food from this restaurant. We also love the takeaway option. Very convenient free parking. Five stars!
MUFC & MUSIC: Simple job yet can't take simple orders.No care just in and out.
Events Suffolk
Events Suffolk: Best Nandos we’ve had. Service polite and friendly. Couldn’t fault it but for the odd layout
Caz C
Caz C: Good food if you like chicken and not too pricey.
