Amazing food, amazing service, lovely place. One of the best Thai restaurants in London, especially the Hampstead restaurant! 👍🏼😊 Highly recommend trying it out. 😃
Tremendous selection of some of the best Thai food available .with good service in comfortable surroundings.The prices may seem on the high side but are certainly worth every penny.
It was lovely, the place is very cozy and the customer service was great and so kind all of them, and the food was so good too even though is bit fancy but it’s worth it. We sure go back soon.
This is a lovely restaurant, the staff are so friendly and attentive. My husband and I enjoyed our visit here. The food was so lovely. Will definitely be visiting again.
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.
