Really very good Street/Railway food. Quality and spicing uniformly good and authentic. Service very good and friendly - our first visit, and explained menu and concept very well. Sorry, can't give 5* for food as Dishoom is a favourite of mine, and this was just a touch below Dishoom's vibrancy, but for a small local eateries Patri is very good indeed.

The food is very mediocre and the spicing is relatively poor. Seems to have gone downhill since the name (& I assume management) change from Chai Naasto. The kids thali bore no resemblance to what was on the menu and the paneer served was far too spicy for a 4 year old (who happily eats Indian food at home). The girlfriend chaat was just chilli poison - pure dry painful heat which completely upset the rest of the meal. The ‘happy hour’ was very restrictive. Service was very mediocre.

The food was absolutely amazing! The restaurant itself is pretty small but it’d be perfect in summer as the tables outside are very cute. Definitely recommend even if you’re not a fan of really hot spicy food they have something for everyone. Was so shocked at how well priced and good value it was too.

Limitedvarities for vegetaraian. Food isa bit pricey for whats on offer, so limited value for money

Patri Hammersmith
Responded on June 16, 2019

Dear Usha V, 70 % of our menu is vegetarian and vegan, we offer big flavors in our boutique capacity. We offer value for money when compared to central London restaurants with bigger flavors and larger portion sizes. Dining in Hammersmith with food cooked by award-winning chefs and ingredients from London finest suppliers has that slight bit pricey element as you describe which can be overcome by dining with us between 6 and 7.30 pm on our set menu offers. Thanks Puneet

I would recommend the restaurant as ok, try it, the food was not amazing and the bhel puri we ordered was stale.

Patri Hammersmith
Responded on June 16, 2019

Dear Janki, We are sorry to hear you did not find our food amazing. Our bhel puri is made in house and due to the volume we sell we cook small batches, minutes before serving to ensure freshness in texture. The puffed rice in bhel puri was delivered the same day as well. We did not get any complaints from other tables, perhaps you are confusing sogginess with staleness? Feel free to reach out to me to discuss this further, Thanks Puneet

My girlfriend and I got engaged in India and for her birthday she wanted to find an Indian restaurant with authentic Indian food. Patri is exactly this, the food was amazing (both the vegetarian and meat) and the service was impeccable. As it was her birthday they gave us complimentary drinks and brought her out a desert with a candle. We will definitely eat here again on a regular basis.

Overly pretentious without the quality and service to back it up.

Asked for a quiet table and was put in the middle of two large loud groups, despite most of the restaurant being empty. When I asked to be moved the manager said that all the tables were booked and expected people there very soon... An hour later all of the empty tables were still enjoy.

Food was decent however incredibly expensive for the service, location and quality. I had 4 side dishes and a couple of drinks which came to almost £50.

Pretty disappointing overall considering what the company blurb claims in regards to its quality and service.

One of the waiters was really good however and kept a close eye on us and helped recommend dishes.

Plenty of much much better restaurants in this price rang however so I would recommend trying others.

Lovely restaurant and food but staff are so miserable! I was really looking forward to be greeted and served by friendly people considering the positive reviews of this restaurant but not a single one of them can crack a smile!
Food is tasty though; if you don’t like it spicy then I would let them know before hand as my husband suffered with the spice levels!

Wow! What a fantastic find this place is.
So far removed from the usual curry ‘fayre’ that we have become accustomed to in the UK.
The menu itself is a totally different experience, but with the expert help and guidance given to us by the wonderful lady serving us, we had a fantastic overall dining experience.
The shared starter of various vegetarian dishes all on one platter, was exceptional. Flavours like I’ve never tasted in an Indian restaurant. The main course and sides didn’t disappoint either, and when I’m next in London, I will go out of my way to eat here again.
It was delicious!

I first visited the restaurant when it was Chaai Naasto in December 2018 and I knew my mum would love it for Mother's Day, so when I booked it was still called Chai Naasto and had the old menu. I only realised when I went back to my reservation a few days before to extend the booking that it was now called Patri and was under new management. The food was ok, but not spectacular, the only difference was the size of the portions of the food and the way the papads are served as small broken up pieces in a bowl. We ordered a few different dishes, small plates and to be honest, we weren't particularly blown away. The decor isn't anything special and yes, as many have already stated, tables are so close together with some placed awkwardly under the bar. It is very tight in the restaurant. I have to be honest and say that I actually had a lovely experience when it was Chai Naasto with it's indian inspired cocktails etc. Everything about the new menu is medicore now, and unfortunately, nothing very special. I did ask for a takeaway curry but was dismayed when I got home as to how much oil it was actually swimmin in. On the whole, the visit was ok, but I wouldn't go back. I can find similar closer to where I live. £90 for 2 people for some tapas style dishes and drinks places it at the higher end of cost, but his doesn't necessarily mean the quality is any better.

Something seems to have changed here (with the disappearance of the railway carriages that used to be there). This was our third visit - the first two were very positive. This time, one of the dishes was inedible and the service indifferent.
