Lots of knock off technology and clothing...some souvenirs and handicrafts. Market pops up in the middle of the road with adult establishments on each side of the road. Be careful in the "shows". They will try to charge you an incredible fee for having watched. Don't pay it. 2 beers later and $10-$20 will get you back out the door.... More

On my previous visit I liked the food, service was not the best but ok for a local meal. We went last night and it was shocking..food wasn't up to standard and tasted like it had come out of microwave packet! Service was dreadful..a lot of money for crap..won't be returning!

I've lost count of how many times we've eaten here. Although the lady who owned the restaurant has retired and there are some new faces serving, the kitchen staff appear not to have changed, certainly not if the consistency of the food is anything to go by. Dishes are authentic and always freshly prepared. Service is charming, with the female... More

Booked a table for the last Friday in December, staff were warm and welcoming, the restaurant very busy. Orders were taken and the food arrived promptly but I have to say that's where all the positives stop. We had several dishes between the six of us and all I can say is a couple of them ok at best, the... More

On 22nd December I received a telephone call from Patpong to say that they were closed on Christmas Day. I even rang a couple of days before to add 2 more people joining us and they confirmed it was... More

We come here at least once a week, food and service is always excellent. Great atmosphere and we always enjoy the music. The beautiful waitresses dress in traditional Thai clothing which adds to the authenticity and enjoyment of this vibrant restaurant. We no longer need to use the menus, we know exactly what we want to order.

Thought we'd give this place another try as we heard that 'momma' had retired and one of the sons had taken over and it was much better. Sadly not the case... the staff seemed more interested in chatting amongst themselves than waiting table and the food has not improved. Just reheated microwave fodder not worthy of the fabulous reputation that... More

Sorry to hear of your disappointment in dinning with us, and we take all your comments very seriously. However momma has the same two main Chefs of 20 years in charge in the kitchen cooking to the authentic recipes that have been used at Pat pong for 26 years of business. The word Fodder and bad service rang a bell... More

Don't expect to have your table kept for you after 20 mins (even though you have up to 30 mins). Also dony think you can move seats. Service was OK. Would return...at some point.

Amazing as always....Lovely food, excellent and attentive service. The atmosphere is vibrant and decor is authentic. I can't pick one dish as my favourite as they are all superb. I do recommend having the Salt and pepper squid, the Patpong platter starter and the Panaeng curry all devine! Patpong never fails....Thank you for another lovely evening.
