I've never tried Thai food, so it was my first time. After visiting "Patara" I fell in love with Thai food! The food was incredible, really delicious, the stuff was kind and welcoming (we haven't booked a table) and the atmosphere is calm and nice. I recommend this restaurant to everybody who wants to spend a pleasant evening with a... More

Well, easy to find on the Fulham Road, just between the Royal Marsden hospital and Sydney Street. Inside is laid out in a nicely sympathetic way. Tables close but not jammed in like some places. Restaurant is on the corner of a block so plenty of light. Menu offers plenty of choice for all. At the back there was a... More

Walked in without a reservation - staff were kind enough to accommodate us after a short wait. The starters were nice - we ordered the Tom Yum Goong & mixed spring rolls which were really nice. The main course was average - the green curry was the wrong constancy and the flavors were not right. The Lobster Pad Thai was... More

Excellent food, delicate flavours, good staff, all in all a worthwhile place. Only gripe would be lack of tablecloths.

Patara used to be a very good Thai and was able to produce the same quality in four different locations across London. It is still ok, but strongly declined in the past few years. Obviously the prices being the same it is now overpriced . Colors nice presentations are still there but no longer the freshness and the high quality... More

Well everything went well until the final course, when a mouse ran across the floor of the restaurant. The waitress said she'd tell the manager, who then proceeded to bring more customers downstairs. Clearly they were aware of the problem and carried on regardless. Now concerned about the standards of cleanliness & will be notifying environmental health.

Whilst in South Kensington and passing so many places to eat we opted to try this Thai Restaurant for lunch. Whilst we had not booked and it looked like we were going to be out of luck but they managed to find us a table and were extremely friendly and made us feel like long standing clients. The service and... More

Cant praise this restaurant enough food of the highest quality and different from your normal Thai restaurants backed with good service. If going over the weekend would recommend booking as very busy and lots of people turned away.

We visited this restaurant last night for my father's birthday and had a truly wonderful meal! the food had fantastic flavor and was immaculately presented. We had an array of starter platters including the Satay Trio, Scallops and the rice paper wraps which were all excellent. As main courses another mixture was in order including the duck (incredible and melt... More
