    Somewhat disappointing. The food was well presented, good flavours but cold. The waiters were not attentive and needed to be reminded about our orders. They were not well presented either. Draft form fireplace made a chilly night worse. Not sure would return

    We found the food and service to be of excellent standards. Flavoursome food, a great menu to choose from. It's quite a vibrant atmosphere with an overall relaxed dining environment, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The seating is quite close to each other, if you're looking for quiet, its not the one. We absolutely loved it and will be back 💥

    It’s honestly very expensive, noisy and sitting next to the cold draughty window wasn’t nice either. But it’s still possibly the best Thai in London.

    A lot of reviews say it's really bad. This isn't correct but nor is it wonderful either. What it is is a competent mid-range Thai restaurant. I'd go there regularly but not for a special occasioin.

    Great ambience and good food. All together we ordered 3 cocktails, two starters, and two main along with 1 desert. Cost came up to £156 with service charge. Food is really good and really nice and warm along with the cocktails and the rest of the order. I still think the cost is higher when compared with other similar places. But yes good for a special dinner place or a for any special evening dinner. Loved it.

    My wife and I live literally a half a block from this restaurant and last evening was our first time eating there since we moved to Hampstead. The food and presentation is absolutely wonderful and the menu is far more varied than those we have seen at other similar restaurants. As I indicated the ambience is superb--just the kind of setting we would take special guests to or meet over lunch or dinner. There are, however, two things that impacted us and may also impact other potential guests: First, he prices are a bit high, even though lately they look to be closer in line with other restaurants as prices overall have increased. But you were to us, prohibitively overpriced a one or two years ago. The second thing is that for your prices, the portions are a bit small. If they were bigger I suppose one can justify the higher prices, but they weren't in our experience. If they remain this size, and despite their excellence, I do feel you need to consider making some downward price adjustments. Nonetheless, we very much enjoyed our experience at Patara and will return. Thanks

    Nice table against window, better than some others crammed into the middle of the room. High quality food, very well presented and good portions, bit on the expensive side. Food came quickly and hot. Not always easy to get attention otherwise, e.g. for drinks. Would definitely go back here.

    This restaurant deserves a thousand stars. The food is consistently excellent but best of all the staff are extremely welcoming, helpful and kind. We have been regular diners because in the Hampstead area Patara Thai surpasses all other options. This particular occasion was to celebrate my very elderly Father's birthday and the staff went above and beyond to give him a brilliant evening. I cannot thank them enough!

    This has been a longstanding favourite so what a shame for the changed recipes and paring-back on their previously wonderful dishes! The coconut chicken curry used to be light and full of veg such as baby corn. It’s now heavy, thick and devoid of veg besides tasteless bamboo and thin slivers of aubergine. The changes are so noticeable, other people have noticed it too so I don’t think Patara will maintain its crown.

    Very good Thai food! Quality is consistently high! Some of my favs are the Coconut Beef, Crab with Yellow Curry, Coconut Rice and water spinach. For desert, the Mango Sticky Rice and/or the Caramelised Banana with Ice Cream. For drinks the Champagne Mojito pairs very well with the food. Service is good and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    Food was tasteless and cold. Everyone couldn’t finish the food, the tom yam tasted like dishwater. Mostly seafood and the fish was not fresh. The soft shell crab was soggy and bitter. Added to the lukewarm temp everything came at felt like food was cooked few days ago. But The bill was a bomb. Felt really bad suggesting this place to my friends. We should have gone elsewhere

    Second visit. Better than the first I think because this time went for the more traditional dishes. Without doubt the best green curry I have had outside Thailand. It is expensive but we had a lot. Next time, which won’t be long we will probably keep the quantities down. But overall great night fab food a great company.
