Excellent food, lovely restaurant. Doesn’t serve beer.
Our dining experiance were great.
Staff is very kind and friendly.
So many different options of food, so we could not stop eating.
Will be back again.
Thank you so much ErikaJ. It was a pleasure having you with us! We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Food is not fresh it’s like street food
Can not eat it again
We are so so sorry to see a review like this. Masha, we cannot apologize enough. Can we make this up to you? Do dm us, and lets set things right.
Food was good. They had no beer on the menu for drinks. Unusual for an Indian restaurant.
Quinua and samosa chaat really nice. ( needs different garnish)
Mango paneer was good.
Channa was excellent. Favourite dish.
Thank you so much for the review and the feedback. Yes, we will get the beers added on. However, we hope you tried one of our infamous cocktails. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
We enjoyed a very good meal at Pataka. In fact, it was the best Indian food we’ve ever had! The quinoa chat, butter chicken, chicken biryani, and dal were all excellently prepared. The service was great also. If we lived in London, we would be regulars!
Very friendly service, great food and a convenient location very close to Victoria station.
Excellent food and very warm and efficient service . Chef is excellent and Yasmin, the girl who served us was very warm and efficient
Pre theatre dinner with family, excellent food & service
Great service and delicious food
Wonderful place had an Anniversary celebration and were looked after well, Recommend
The food was very tasty with generous portions. We ate early before seeing Hamilton so the restaurant was quiet so moved indoors as traffic noisy
There are lots of chain restaurants in the vicinity so it was good to find somewhere more personal and authentic
Great food, super fast order->table service, perfect for pre-show (Hamilton) meal.
Excellent restaurant service, only let down by shabby loos (if you need to use them)!
Hi! Thanks so much for your feedback. We cant wait for the theater's to come back and launch our pre-theater menu. We are glad that you enjoyed your food and service. Any feedback that we receive is taken rather seriously, and we will ensure that the loo's are updated and maintained more efficiently. Look forward to having you back!!!
Stunning food - beautifully prepared. complex and subtle and at times inventive and unexpected.
interesting cocktail list (negroni with curry leaf) and so many options. HIGHLY recommend.
FYI sitting on the street is quite active it’s a heavily trafficked bus route. inside is high ceilings and plush velvet chairs.
Thank you so much for your feedback! The cocktail menu changes on September 1, and we hope you will come back to try the new list. See you soon.
A really lovely restaurant with pleasant staff and great food not your traditional Indian so don’t go expecting everything you would get on a normal Indian menu eg: no popadoms to nibble but what they do serve is Fantastic. I would suggest sitting at a table inside as the outside dining area is right next to a busy road.
Thank you so much for your feedback. Yes, the outside is bustling, but we hope took advantage of the outdoor Kingfisher bar. Our menu is continuously evolving, and we hope to welcome you back to try some of the new ideas going forward. Look forward to seeing you again.
The food and level of service were excellent. Unfortunately the wine prices were high.
Great food and service tasty huge portions so hard to find a good Indian in London love this place will be back bottomless rose very generous deal
Gorgeous food and staff - the only downside was the music - it didn’t need to be on - mainstream dance music and Indian fine dining don’t go well together.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We have now created a Pataka Indian at Home playlist on Spotify, and will continue to update it so that you have upbeat, Indian inspired music that is non-intrusive. Do let us know your favourites and we can add it on!
We went there having heard good things about Pataka.
Staff was friendly and attentive and they tried to make us feel welcome and comfortable. Drinks were good. We only ordered a drink each but the selection looked good.
Food was sadly only average. Starter was Samosa chat which was good. But grilled tiger prawns (3 pieces) for £18.50 were overwhelmingly overpriced considering what you get for your money. They weren’t seasoned, over charred and really chewy. That being said apart from prawns everything else had a good portion size, especially sides like Chana Masala and Rice. Hands down the best thing on the menu was Lachcha Paratha (bread).
We are very familiar with Indian food and didn’t need any assistance however we feel the menu requires some description (The Original Dal?) for other restaurant-goers (though we did see staff assisting people with the menu, so well done!).
A bit more of social distancing between tables would be good and also 1-2 staff members weren’t wearing masks while talking to us/serving at our table.
Overall we felt, based on our experience, that it’s a good place for an occasional drink and a bite and really practical in terms of location (near Victoria Station), however not someplace you will go back for food. At least we won’t be.
Dear Anonymous We are very sad to hear about your experience at our restaurant, and we take each of your concerns extremely seriously and will ensure we improve and right the wrongs. Thank you for your feedback again. We are pained when a guest leaves us disappointed, and we only hope we can make amends the next time you visit. Perhaps even persuade you to try a bite again, when you visit for the occasional drink.
Lovely meal, the prawn dishes were pur favorites
Thank you GEGE. There's some new additions coming on the menu soon. We look forward to seeing you again
The food and service at Pataka was superb and exceptionally friendly. The menu catered for all tastes and our waiter was careful in telling us which dishes were vegan (always a relief to me when several dishes are on the table). We dined outside (Covid-caution) and the staff did their utmost to make us comfortable with heaters, blankets, and even a hot water bottle!
Thank you so much LynneB. It was our pleasure serving you. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
We had a fantastic meal here and the service, except for one person was great. I would highly recommend and will definitely return. The cocktails were fantastic.
Dear JessicaT Thank you so much for your review. We continue to improve our service and food, and hope to see you again soon.
We had a really lovely meal outside before inside opened up.
Great set up with heaters and they offered hot water bottles and blankets too.
Food was stunning - so so so delicious! Was amazing to have each mouthful and each dish was a delight. Great flavours and presentation was lovely
They were really friendly and helpful and we weren't rushed - which resulted in us ordering another round of drinks.
Price was not cheap, but it was worth it. Only item I begrudged was the mint tea - make it a £1 and sell loads of it!
Only real negative was the toilet - was foul which was a great let down.
Hi! Thanks so much for this response. We look forward to seeing you in the restaurant, which is warm, cozy and personal - all at the same time. The menu has been updated, while retaining some of your favourites. See you back soon
Booked an outdoor table. Ambience is nice, even outside. Food was very good and although the portions were considerably smaller than expected we really enjoyed the food. Would definitely recommend to those looking for nice authentic Indian Cuisine.
Hi FaizanH Thank you so much for your review. We are delighted that you enjoyed the food. Look forward to seeing you again soon
We were there to celebrate a friends bday and we had a perfect afternoon at Pataka. The team was very attentive. The food flawless. Highly recommend the place.
Thank you so much!!!! We look forward to seeing you again soon
Good food, very kind and attentive service, fair prices.
Signature Cocktails good addition to the whole experience
The food was excellent, however, there's still room for improvement.
Pataka do not read allergy or dietary requirements listed when booking a table, which then causes a problem when you go to the restaurant and find out that everything is pre-prepared (or, they'll claim everything is "marinated"), so apparently only have the ability to warm dishes up, not to actually prepare anything from scratch or anything simple.
Thank you for taking the time to write this review. All our dishes have allergen info as mandated by law. At times, there may be an ingredient that we CANNOT remove from the recipe (like garlic or salt). Cooking Indian food from "scratch" isn't an option, as we marinate raw meats & vegetables for hours to ensure the flavors soak in. We prepare food on site from raw to cooked - The assertion that we "warm dishes up" is factually incorrect & this lie is disheartening to read on a public forum.
Nice and spicy food! Service was exceptional as well
Thats awesome to hear! See you soon
Food is amazing!!! Could have brought out the heaters earlier
Thank you so much for your feedback. We have passed on your compliments to the chef, and we will bring out the heaters earlier for sure!
I had lower expectations in terms of food quality because all the Indian restaurants i’ve tried in London are quite refined; but i was surprised because it was really good and tasty! Would go again
Thank you so much!!! We strive to offer a differentiated Indian experience, and we are delighted you though we did a good job. We look forward to your next visit......where we assure you an incredible ambience
Food was good and reasonably priced. Cocktails were nice. Wine was expensive (especially considering they only serve one size - 175ml - it is priced at what you would usually pay for 250ml at other restaurants). Staff were friendly and helpful. The tables are on the street on quite a busy road which isn’t ideal but understandable in the current circumstances. There was a performer singing which was good but extremely loud so we could hardly hear each other.
Hello! Thank you so much for your feedback. We have taken this feedback and have altered the entertainment to make it lively yet unobtrusive. We hope to see you again, soon!
Fantastic venue, great food flavours and an imaginative menu with lovely staff. Patio heaters to keep out the chill and the offer of blankets and hand warmers but not needed. Excellent all round, would visit again and highly recommend.
Thank you so much!!! We look forward to your next visit.
Good food and some lovely presentation- service was super efficient.
Thank you!!! We hope to see you again soon
A new startup working in difficult times did a cracking job.
The food was very tasty and we all enjoyed what we had, and it’s a good sign when there is nothing left.
One tiny gripe: the tables outside are a little on the small side for 4 diners.
Thank you so much GarinK. We thoroughly enjoyed having you over. We are in the middle of upgrading the outdoor dining experience, along with a brand new interior refurb this week. We can assure you that we are constantly enhancing our guests experience with every passing day Thank you again!
The food was lovely, a really unique Indian restaurant, I hadn't been to one similar before. It's a nice change from traditional curry houses. The beer is expensive though!
Thank you for your comments. We have genuinely tried to create a differentiated offering, unavailable in the Indian restaurant scene at the moment. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
We went to Pataka last Sunday and it was lovely, the waiter and waitresses were very nice and helpful. The food was delicious. Being a vegetarian it can sometime be hard to find food that is as nice as chicken dishes but these really did set new standards. Will be coming back for my sisters birthday !
ManniB - it was a pleasure serving you! Thank you so much for your kind words. We cant wait to welcome you back.
Disappointed, waitress did not know the menu and we got something very different.
CarolineS - We are so sorry your order got mixed up. We are in the midst of training a team from the newly created Kickstart Scheme by the government, giving youth the opportunity to find a career in the hospitality industry. We will ensure that the training programs fulfill their potential, and serve you better in the future.
Great food. Enjoyed it on a sunny day with a good cocktail. As temperature dropped staff brought out heaters adding to the pleasurable experience.
Excellent food. Well presented and caring staff. Highly recommended. We will be back!
Thanks Lilo! We look forward to seeing you again
