Food and hospitality was on point, Amazing, flavours from the food was nothing like I've tasted before, it was excellent. I'll definitely be back in the future.
Really a good place to enjoy Thai food, which is tasty and clean. The curry was totally nice and the stuff is friendly too. I love it
Wonderful Thai dinner, welcoming staff, nice decoration, and wonderful food as well. The Patara tasting starter is a great way to try a bunch of different things and the mains were delicious too. The braised beef in coconut and lime was amazing!
The food was great! Best Thai we have ever had by far. The staff were extremely polite and attentive. The food, staff, restaurant as a whole is very authentic
My partner and I treated our friends to an anniversary dinner. We had the sharing deal, you get a selection of starters, a selection of mains and a dessert. Our friends hadn't tasted Thai food and were pleasantly surprised by the way you could taste every flavour in every dish. If you can't decide on what to eat this is a great option, once you've tasted the different range of dishes, next time you go back you could order your main from the dish you liked most from the selection. Absolutely delicious food!
We were really looking forward to our lunch at Patara having seen previous reviews, and were prepared to pay a bit more for what we expected would be something above average. Unfortunately our experience did not live up to expectations. The food was nicely presented and was ok in itself, but nothing special compared to every other high street Thai restaurant we have visited. The main problem, however, was the unacceptably long wait between the starter and main course. The waitress apologised and informed us that one chef was ill and there was one replacement chef in the kitchen, not our problem really. We noticed another diner having problems with her order and another couple, who were obviously known by the staff, being served before us although they arrived some time after us. Our main courses did not arrive at the same time either. All in all, disappointing for the price, and we will not be returning.
We really liked this place. The most important thing, the food, was fabulous. We opted for their 'banquet' set menu, which had a lovely balance of prawns/chicken, beef and fish, with flavours that were allowed to shine through without being mugged by superfluous fiddling. The service was friendly and obliging, albeit it was a Sunday afternoon and the place was largely empty and they had plenty of time to look after us. The prices were stiff but fair, for what was excellent food in the not exactly cheap environs of Beauchamp Place.
What a delightful place to have lunch! It's on the rather charming Beauchamp Place, you walk in and it feels like a haven. Soft music, Thai decor, delicious food - I easily passed a couple of hours here and left feeling relaxed. The service was friendly and genuine, although a little slow at times. But our food and drinks arrived in good time. I would recommend the Banana dessert with the cream/ice cream/nuts. Just divine!
Service is always great and love the food at Patara. It's a nice and cosy restaurant so perfect for when it's cold outside and the ambience is very calm. I'm vegetarian and there is a lot of choice - my favourite it the vegetable and tofu Thai red curry and the mango and mushroom salad to start!!
I'm a big foodie and have been to many restaurants but this resteraunt on first is impression NOTHING LIKE the pictures on the website it is wAAAAAAay too small...air conditioning was broken...we were shown to a table up the stairs then we were asked why we were up the stairs and had to come back down to another table. Service was very clumsy. Seating was very uncomfortable staff didn't know the menu and when it came to order the second bottle of wine they had run out and when it came to all three of our party ordering pudding they had also run out of the chocolate pudding. The waiter had a huge white head spot on his face which was incredibly off putting and he was completely incompetent didn't have clue clearly. The fire or burglar alarm went off off when we got our starters which was again awful the noise was piercing.. The lighting is way too bright and the tables are so close to each other that you can hear everyone's conversations. Staff were hovering around watching us eat almost waiting to whisk the plates away before we were finished eating. It certainly was NOT a lovely 5 star place as we had expected...kids were running around and people seemed to just walk in were able to get a table without booking which means it's not exclusive as it tries to portray on the site. I was there with my uncle and aunty for their anniversary and I won't be returning. I don't know how it has managed to get into Beauchamp Place Knightsbridge doesn't fit atall. It's a cheap taxi eatery that charges Knightsbridge prices. We could of had better service in pizza express. I was Unbelievablely disappointed all round and if I hadn't been there to treat my family to dinner I would of walked out on first impressions and gone to the Buddha bar. Don't waste your money going here.
