Directly at Chingford station, Pat Pong is one of the city’s favourite casual Southeast Asian restaurants. A magnet for foodies from all across the Greater London area, this Chingford restaurant on Station Road offers their creative Thai cuisine at an affordable cost, and in an environment that’s comfortable yet sophisticated. Utilising ingredients like galangal, lemongrass and Thai basil, Pat Pong’s kitchen keeps their cuisine as authentic as possible, and as fresh as it gets.
Steps from Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge and Chingford Golf Course, Pat Pong on Station Road delights eastern London locals with their Thai specialities, featuring all the favourites from plah goong to gaeng ped (Thai red curry). With plenty of meat-free options, this is the perfect place to visit with that vegetarian in your life, and there are of course numerous beef, chicken, seafood and pork dishes to go around.
At Pat Pong, you can’t go wrong with any of the dishes on the Chef’s Recommendations section of the menu. For big eaters, we recommend the sie khong moo, ribs marinated in pepper, garlic and honey sauce or the pou nim tord, deep-fried soft shell crab with a tasty homemade sauce. The pad tao huu sod is a particularly delicious vegetarian option, and the duck spring rolls are the perfect side item or appetiser. The menu at Pat Pong in London’s Chingford is too lengthy to summarise properly, with rotating specials regularly, so it’s best to see for yourself – book ahead or risk missing out!
It was a great experience at Pat Pong for Mother's Day. The service was great and so was the food. Would highly recommend to others.
We had a wonderful night again at Pat Pong. The food, wine and service was excellent as always. We like to start with a Pat Pong Platter, which is a mix starters for two. The Thai papaya salad is the best I have tasted, and as for the Chicken Pad Thai.... Yummy! They dress in traditional outfits which look stunning! the music is played at the perfect volume so no problem having a chat. The right music really helps the restaurant’s atmosphere. Choosing the right restaurant music helps convey brand image, can influence the dining mood and can even affect a diner's perception of the food. This is a very authentic Thai restaurant which is right opposite Chingford bus station. We love it and have been visiting weekly for many years.
Great restaurant, top quality service! It was a great experience to be able to dine there with family and friends. I would recommend to all
Friendly service, a pleasant atmosphere and really delicious food for a reasonable price. I couldn’t fault it, it was a really good evening. Highly recommended.
This was our second visit to Pat Pong - my husband and I were celebrating our son getting his degree. On arrival we waited a couple of minutes for our table ready as we requested seating at the rear. Our drinks order was taken and we dived into the lovely complimentary spicy crackers - delicious. We had the platter to start, followed by pad thai noodles, green curry and rice, ladies fingers and scallops. All we can say is the chef should be crowned because the food is FABULOUS!! and great service too. This Thai restaurant is by the far best. We highly recommend
A lovely table in the middle of the restaurant, we were seated within a few minutes. There were already prawn crackers on the table and we had drinks within a few minutes of ordering. The starters came up piping hot, however they forgot to give us a finger bowl for the ribs. We then waited 15 minutes for our main which was just right so that we could digest our starters. Our plates were piping hot and the staff were attentive to empty glasses and dishes and took them straight away which meant we didn't have a cluttered table. The restaurant was packed with a couple of birthday party guests and the whole atmosphere was conducive to a lovely evening.
This was my husband's and I first visit and we were impressed. We were seated promptly and our request to have a table at the back away from door, as I get cold easily was honoured. The waitress was a bit hasty in wanting to take a drinks order as we hadn't sat down (the only downside). We had the sharing platter to start which was absolutely delicious and our mains was equally so; my noodles were the best I've tasted. The portions are a good size and everything was hot. Ohhh and you get complimentary spicy crackers. The service and atmosphere was great. We had a fab nite, will be going back and would absolutely recommend.
We have been going to Pat Pongs for several years and always enjoy the food and the service. The standard is very good and the service by the staff is excellent. However if you sit at a table near the entrance it can be drafty when the outer door isn't closed properly so go for a table in the middle or the back of the restaurant.
Went here last night with my wife, first impression was it was full up and noisy. Ordered a bottle of wine they didn't have so had to pay a little extra for another. Ordered food and it came promptly, all the food was lovely and we'll presented. Food was a little bland and sauces a bit thin. But not too bad. Overall impression restaurant was lovely staff attentive, food not perfect but still good. Would we go again? Yes but would avoid the wines as very expensive and they had no Red house wine. Two of us on a spend of £75 not cheap but would have been fair if the £25 bottle of average wine was left off. 4 star.
My girlfriend Carolyn and I are deaf, we found communication with Pat Pong staff fairly difficult. It would be helpful if they could have some deaf awareness training and some basic signing skills. The service was very good and prompt. We enjoyed the food and wine. We came to celebrate Carolyn's birthday. Nicholas
