Tasty, and enjoyable. need to try more things to really give it a review.
Not up to usual Patara standard. Disappointing as we are regular customers. Believe they are prioritising take away / delivery orders.
Food not as good as used to be tom ka gai too sweet and thai green lacked flavour
Fantastic quality of service, it was my girlfriends birthday and they brought a cake out which was amazing!! :)
First time to Patara. Disappointed with many aspects including non existent welcome, table service, overall food quality which was pretty average and price, which was way over value. Would not proactively return.
A lovely venue with friendly attentive staff. Food was good although in fairness i went there for my friend’s choice. She was impressed so I can take that as a plus
The most wonderful food in a lovely gem of a restaurant. Can highly recommend.
I used to enjoy going here but last night was very disappointing. Since my last visit the quality of the food has gone down sharply and the prices up. I felt the food was no better than you would expect from a takeaway. Our main courses took ages to arrive and it seemed the kitchen was mainly focused on getting the takeaway orders completed rather than getting us our food. Compared to other Thai restaurants it is expensive with at best average food. I will not be going back.
Lovely lunch, food always very good here and such friendly staff :)
Lovely dining environment delivering excellent cuisine served with visual delight. Highly recommended for a quiet evening out with a friend or two.
Food was good, service was a let down, felt a bit rushed to leave the table asap like it was a burden we were there.
Great food served quickly and efficiently by attentive staff in quiet restaurant.
We have often eaten at the Beauchamp place Patara - sadly closed at the moment, which we would rate as superb. So this was our first time at the South Ken branch. The staff and service here were great, but the set lunch was not as good as Beauchamp place - slightly more oily and with less of the fresh zing and subtle fresh cooked flavours. So not bad, but not amazing.
I knew the Restaurant and was very glad to have the chance to come back to dinner.
The dishes are very tasty and the service friendly and fair
The food is too salty and oily, quite expensive than normal.
I ordered a Thai iced tea, it’s really sweet too!
Not recommended and won’t come back again. A bit disappointed!
Delicious fresh Thai. Great choice. Friendly staff. Nice spot.
Overpriced unfortunately, my braised beef was extremely salty, my friends curry was good. It is good thai food but nothing special to justify the high prices. The atmosphere and service was 10/10 though!
Has the set lunch, very good selection and value. Will definitely go back
The food here is always delicious. The lunch set menu is good value.
Amazing food and atmosphere *
Charming, attentive service. Excellent choices and value for money lunchtime menu. Been visiting here for years and this branch of Patara is consistently good.
I am really sorry to say it was a very disappointing experience. The food was not as good as what I have had years ago there and it lacks ambience. I feel the restaurant was very tired and needs to be freshened up.
Best pad thai in london. Excellent selection of wines too, and vegetarian options
Food was pre cooked and had just been warmed up. Very expensive not even worth it.
Lovely restaurant. Great service, will come again.
Absolutely brilliant, the staff was very helpful especially KT the assistant manager. From the get go I had a plan of asking my partner to marry me and she helped me complete this. All the staff was absolutely brilliant I would highly recommend this place to anyone.
Thank you to all the staff for an amazing anniversary/proposal evening.
Amazing food, lovely staff. Hugely expensive however, perhaps unnecessarily so.
Amazing place. The best tasting food we have had in years. The service was genuine and 1st class. Well done!
We visited Patara for my mother’s 60th birthday and it did not disappoint. The food was delicious, the service was excellent and we had a lovely time/ we will definitely be visiting again!
Really lovely Thai dinner, would 1000% go back! I had my fave chilli basil beef and it was unreal, with mango sticky rice for desert. Would highly recommend!
Great food. Good service. We had 4 plates of delicious food at once. I just wish the staff had cleared some of the ‘dead’ plates once we had finished them rather than waiting till the end.
But overall very good.
Friendly staff,great food ,good value for money. Fast service.
The most tasteful food ever. The service was fantastic,
Will definitely return.
Very good service and food- love the Tom yum soup and the lamb shank! Everything came very quickly
Staff and service amazing but the food and presentation for what you pay is not good. I’ve had better presentation and food at budget Thai eatery’s
Tasty crab and prawns curry. Average Calamari starter. Staff very kind and efficient. The place was not very sophisticated for a Saturday in Chelsea (compared to other restaurants in the area). A bit overpriced for what it was
Had dinner with friends. Just like in the good precovid times. Lovely food. Thank you.
Great food, excellent service and an all round enjoyable experience
Food was good, lots of veggie options which was great! A couple of dishes we didn’t like, including a vegetarian dish with came with a fish-sauce and no warning. Luckily my friend thought it smelled funny and asked before we ate it, and also there was a tofu dish with lemongrass where none of our group liked the sauce. However, the mushroom and basil dish was incredible and would definitely have that again! The restaurant itself became extremely stuffy and the air hazy, so much so that it was really warm and uncomfortable at one point when full. Staff were polite but not super helpful in advising us about the fish-sauce situation, and were difficult to get the attention of. Desserts were very small, and when we were given the menu we weren’t advised on what was unavailable until we ordered. Overall, it was a pleasant evening, but I don’t think I will return on a busy Friday, and maybe try again on another day when it’s less busy! Will definitely be back for the mushroom and basil dish 👌
