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!

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.

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.

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.

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!!!!

Amazing starters! My wife ordered sprite but was given a lemonade instead which wasnt what she ordered or informed about. My chicken pad thai was filled with tofu and had no peanuts.

Huge disappointment but starters were very, very good!

The restaurant has a lovely modern decor, classy but not flashy. More comfortable and roomy than we expected for Hampstead (some of its restaurants are quite poky). Food was delicious, service was attentive and price was no higher than is expected for a nice evening out in London.

Their was food all over the floors and under the table. Took 15 minutes to get a drink. Our food was sent to two different tables before ours. I had to wait another 5 minutes more to get my green chicken curry and by the time it arrived my rice was cold. Disappointing and won’t go back now.

This was our 4th visit to Patara and I am sad to say, I don't think we will be returning in a hurry.
The food is very tasty but the service has declined so much that it made our visit quite unpleasant. When we told the waitress that we were disappointed she told us that it can only be expected on a Saturday night as it is always busier!! We waited 15 minutes from ordering for our drinks tom arrive, the starters came, but they forgot my soup, and when the mains came most of them were cold. The manager took them away and they returned to our table having been reheated in the microwave and so the sauces were all congealed and the prawns like bullets.
When the bill came the desserts were on the house but the waitress had also double charged us for a main. For the prices and location, Patara really need to relook at the quality of their service otherwise they will become yet another chain to come and go on Hampstead High street.
