Further Information

With restaurants in Vienna, Thailand, Beijing and Singapore just to name a few, Patara has truly become a world leader in the Thai dining scene. The name is now synonymous with innovative Thai cooking, and through their exquisite offerings, Patara is a positive representative for the cuisine wherever they happen to set up shop. The new Hampstead branch aims to keep up the tradition the brand has maintained in London for over twenty years, and with its gorgeous interior and incredible cuisine, the outlook is very, very good.

No matter which Patara location you visit around the world, you can always count on enjoying a phenomenal meal that will stun the senses and the tastebuds. At the Hampstead High Street location, you’ll be smart to start off with appetisers like the duck spring rolls or lime & chilli scallops before selecting from home-style mains like the panang beef, tamarind duck confit, lamb with wild ginger, or the chicken kieaw wan, free-range chicken cooked in a delicious green curry sauce with bamboo shoots, sweet basil and green chillies. We recommend the lemongrass sea bass served with crispy shallots and roasted red chilli, or the amazing lobster pad Thai for a gourmet take on an old favourite. Reservations are a must when planning to dine at this legendary Thai restaurant in the heart of London’s Hampstead.

We come from the Far East and have tasted many Thai cuisines. Patara is truly authentic and the spices were flavourfully balanced. The ambience was good, as was the service. We had mostly seafood and they were all fresh. A very satisfying dinner. 6/6

A really fantastic experience. Our table was delayed - in order to offer us a better slot away from the drafty entrance - but this was mitigated by the very kind offer of complimentary drinks. Once seated we began a very enjoyable evening. The food and service were excellent - our waiter was switched on enough to notice that our puddings were not quite as molten as they should be an whipped them away to ensure that we had them at optimum temperature and consistency... The staff clearly have a great attention to detail and I can't wait to eat there again.

Lovely dinner on a Saturday night in Hampstead. Food was delicious especially the tuna carpaccio, sea bass and the papaya salad. A couple of mistakes were made but didn't spoil our evening- avocado was missing from our salmon and avocado salad (our waiter had another one made for us with the avocado), the chocolate fondant with salted caramel ice cream came with vanilla ice cream (again a portion of the correct ice cream was bought over when we Enquiries). And then 3 extra items were added to our bill total increasing it by £40 more than what we should've paid. So check your bill carefully. The service was lovely and mistakes were rectified and we will definitely go back.

We had heard that the food at Patara was excellent, and we were not disappointed. However, the service was lacking. For the amount of money we were paying for the meal, we were expecting the service to match. This was not the case. The staff seemed uninterested and generally not caring about providing a friendly, top notch service. My husband ordered a glass of dessert wine with our pudding. When it did not arrive with the desserts we mentioned this to a passing waiter, who did not seem to know what to do. Five minutes later we asked again. Finally after reminding the staff three times the wine came, after we had already finished the desserts and were ready to go. Most restaurants at this stage would have not charged the customer. Patara did!! We will not readily be going back.

As usual, the food was spectacular. We took the Patara Ocean menu and we never get tired of it. Better than Michelin-starred Asian restaurants we have been to. My brother is a Chef in France and was impressed by the freshness of the food and the wonderful play with spices and herbs. We would 100% recommend this restaurant again and again and will continue to bring our friends and family for a treat! Thank you for the great care you are taking in your dishes and the service.

I first went to Patari for lunch last week and was delighted with the restaurant and the reasonably priced lunch menu. On the strength of this took a friend there for dinner and was little disappointed. It was v busy but service was ok. The dinner menu I felt was somewhat overpriced. I had a mixed seafood dish with a very subtle curry base which was exquisite, but my friends beef with coconut was dull and the meat a little tough. I would go back but I think only for lunch.

We would return because the food was very good indeed, much better than many Thai restaurants we know. The staff were very welcoming and patient, although we ended up wondering if the place was understaffed. However, we asked for a quiet table which would have been possible upstairs; instead we were seated the very noisy downstairs room. Service was incredibly slow. Our food was warm enough to eat; the table next to ours had to send theirs back because it arrived cold.

We had a lovely meal at the newly opened Patara Hampstead. Food was great - flavours were spot on! Service was good. I would definitely recommend although it's not the cheapest Thai food but definitely worth a visit

DInner just after Christmas, and what exceptional food and attentive service. We chose quite a few of the signature dishes, which were well presented and with a taste to match and it was an easygoing unpressured atmosphere. Would recommend, and re prices - above average for Thai, but an above average restaurant and food to warrant that.

The food at Patara restaurants is consistently good and the Hampstead branch was no exception - tasty with quality ingredients and decent portions. The duck spring rolls were a particular hit. The space was warm, cosy and not too busy for a Friday night with excellent service: a courteous welcome by a hostess in traditional Thai outfit and attentive, efficient table service from cheerful European waiters.

Wonderful Thai Restaurant in Hampstead with a cosy atmosphere and a really good menu. The staff is very welcoming and are always happy to help you choose the right dishes. One tip, don't book a table near the front door as it's a bit chilly and there are many people coming and going.

Great food and atmosphere - maybe a little dark but smart decor. £95 for two which was quite pricy as we only had two beers and two starters/two main courses and one side. £8.95 for a side of green beans with garlic and chilli is way over the top! The food is good though - would recommend the lime and chilli seabass!

Booked a tanker for four well in advance. On arrival a rather unfriendly woman 'greeted' is and sat us at a table in the entrance despite several other tables being free (the whole evening) in obviously nicer parts of the restaurant. We were moved with great reluctance. The food and dinning experience thereafter was generally good (occasionally outstanding) and we had a nice evening. I would certainly go back but not in any great rush..

Patara is a little gem hidden away close to Hampstead tube station. The Thai food is fantastic, the service excellent and I always come away with that feeling something good has happened to me that day. I can recommend it to anyone who happens to be in the area.

The food was really good, however -it's was extremely late ( more than an hour for the main courses) -it was the wrong dishes, so more waiting to get the right ones - And on top of that in the end they added more items in the bill that were not ours Although the staff apologized (nothing great though just the basic) they did not seem to be particularly concerned with the issues neither offered any form of compensation, thus we decided not to pay the service charge and explain why ( for the above reasons.....)

Lovely food and a good range for vegetarians. I love the tofu and red curry! They have taken off the veggie steamed dumplings though which used to be a firm favourite. I am so glad you have opened up nearer us in hampstead.

I went to eat at Patara with a friend. The food was very good though I found my signature starter dish (Dumplings of caramelised chicken and peanut) too sweet. The main course of beef cheeks panang was delicious but certainly not made for big appetites. Overall, we thought that the food was good but overpriced (with sides of vegetables for £10).

Very good food, the mixed seafood in curried sauce was excellent - in fact this is the third time I have had it, although other dishes also recommended. Service a little slow, on a not particularly busy evening, but overall a very nice dining experience.

Wonderful food, great service and a lovely restaurant. The only issue was too much food. We found it difficult to get through a starter and a main as portions are generous. Will definitely be going back.

We had a great time here celebrating a birthday of a dear friend. The lunch set meal was very good and reasonable. And the lovely cheesecake dessert provided by the restaurant for the birthday girl was an awesome surprise for her!

Had a decent evening but wasn't as good as I had hoped. The food was good but lamb shank mussaman (one of the most expensive dishes at £22) was incredibly bland. Loads of coconut and not much other flavour. I was expecting some heat, so quite disappointed with my choice.

Quality of the dishes was ok. We have found it a bit over priced! We had tastier food in different Thai restaurants for much less! Service was good and quick. Highlight for us is the soya nudles with vegies and the chicken Thai soup chefs signature dish.

Patara Hampstead is billed as Thai fine dining. Attractive decor but the food was very disappointing, not as good as some other Thai restaurants and the prices too high.

nice food, ambience. Functional service. Meal for 2 (+ bottle of wine @ £40, 2 courses) was £150 - for me this seemed way overpriced. I would think twice about returning because of this.

Food was nicely presented, flavoursome, fresh. However I thought it a little expensive, especially the desserts and herbal teas (herbal teas @ £4.95) Service okay. Decor quite nice. Restaurant was quite stuffy and hot.
