Patara - Hampstead High Street
Food was beautiful. The mocktail passionata is now one of my favourite drinks.
Service was incredibly slow. Very long wait between starters and main course. Had to chase on a number of occasions and very difficult to get attention of waiting staff. It may be because of where we were sat in the space near the toilets. Had a similar experience when we last went a couple of years ago and were sat in the same space. While the food is reasonably good, based on the overall experience and cost, it is very expensive and doesnt represent good value for money. I very much doubt we will be returning a third time.
The staff was were amazing very attentive and professional. The restaurant is very quaint and romantic however the food was a little hit and miss for us and quite pricey.
A firm favourite of ours, have never had a bad meal there. Food consistently fresh and very tasty. Highly recommend
The food and service has been absolutely fantastic every time I’ve visited Patara. My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary meal so had let them know it was a special occasion when we booked. Upon arrival we received a complimentary glass of champagne upon arrival which was a lovely surprise. We ordered the Banquet set menu and every one of the dishes was great - especially the sea bass. Will definitely return and would highly recommend!
Excellent cooking, good friendly service, room slightly cramped but that's Hampstead....
So amazing food and nice staff.
Good food in a local restaurant. Service attentive and food arrived promptly.
Affordable food, Great Interior, Delicious dishes. Will definitely return !
2nd visit to the restaurant and I was not at all disappointed. It is now my "go to" restaurant.
Wonderful service. Warm beautiful surroundings on a cold wet winter night. Delicious Pad Thai.
Dear Guest, thank you so much for your positive review. We'll be sure to let the Team in Hampstead know! Looking forward to see you again soon. Team Patara
Overpriced, small plates and average food. Slow service, we got our drinks after our starters, claiming busy but many free tables around. Best tasting part was the free chocolate with the bill.
Great Thai food. My favourite restaurant in Hampstead.
This was the third time I had been here, and unfortunately it was not a good overall experience. The food was good, but the service was pretty abysmal. We had to remind the waiters more than once about drink orders, I had to be asked twice what I ordered for my starter, then received the wrong main course. I would now not rush back as it is fairly expensive and I wouldn't see it being worth it.
Regular visitor to Patara . Excellent selection of different dishes. Can offer gluten free dishes as well.
Will return again
Food was incredible! And great service
Thank you for being thoughtful and gave mini celebration to my birthday!
Very disappointing. I've been going to Patara for many years and it's always been my favourite Thai in London. The experience on Saturday was very underwhelming with poor service (30 minutes and no offer of a drink) and underwhelming food. The extension to the Hampstead restaurant also feels like they have over extended without the team to manage a full restaurant. The excuse of "wait will be long because we are fully booked" doesn't cut it.
Food was still nice but did not feel that special like a higher-end Thai restaurant such as Patara should.
Really enjoyed the food service and atmosphere.I would definitely recommend it and would eat there again.
We always enjoy having dinner at Patara Hampstead High Street. However, it appears that the menu recently changed replacing scallops with prawns in Patara Platter. Please bring back scallops!
Consistently good Thai restaurant with a choice of good value set lunches or a la carte. Excellent service.
Food was absolutely delicious. Authentic Thai food with a modern twist. Thoroughly enjoyable. My only complaint would be a slight slowness in service. We waited half an hour tor our order to be taken, and then subsequently did not get our main course for nearly an hour and a half. Very friendly staff but a little disorganised. If that could be sorted out it will be an amazing all round restaurant to visit.
beautifully prepared authentic thai food- extensive and varied menu and good wine list. the black cod is sensational
We had a really lovely evening at Patara on Saturday - the food was different and just delicious and the service was very attentive. We would definitely go back !
The food is fantastic and the service is very friendly and efficient although drinks can sometimes take a long time.
Good Thai food in pleasant surroundings
Very good food, excellent service, guy on next table was VERY noisy but left before the end of our meal, pretty expensive, but would definitely go back !
Very good service. Excellent cuisine. Will be booking again.
Food was delicious however the service was not great. The waitress struggled to understand us which could also be due to the high noise level. After being presented the dessert menu the waitress failed to come back to take our order and we had to call her back. When our desserts came the waiter keep taking it to the table next to us. They did run out of the beef cheek Pennang curry which was my first choice and we were seated at 8pm which was disappointing
Positively, the scallops in the mixed starter platter was delicious cooked perfectly.
Delicious well presented food in very pleasant environment. Service wasn’t perfect, we had to ask again for water. On the pricy side. On our list for special occasions.
Delicious, well presented and well flavored/spiced food and drinks
Variable service depends on which member of staff. Misled ad board for set lunch price. Didn’t mind at all as the food was fab, but felt a little cheated when walking in. Overall, the food and service had made up
Never experienced such slow and poor service, why would you serve three out of five people their meals and make the last two wait 20mins
Drinks took a while to arrive and they messed up a friends vegetarian order. The wild ginger beef was excellent though.
Patara serves Thai dishes of an extraordinarily high quality. The ambience of their restaurants and the service is always reliably charming.
Lovely food and great service
Ordered a salad as a starter and informed the staff that my husbsnd was vegan only to find dried shrimp in the salad. They gave 20 percent off the bill but add 12.5 percent service charge!! Does this make up for a vegan eating shrimp!!!!
We love Thai food and decided to try The restaurant for my wife’s birthday. Excellent in every way!
We had the buffet and although it demonstrated a good introduction to Thai food I thought the vfm at 40/head was questionable
