Thai Heaven @ Patima Restaurant

On Friday my friend and I had a catch up and, of course, food was involved! We weren't really feeling travelling too far and wanted to stay pretty local so we opted for a restaurant on the A6 in Stockport, Patima. 

I'd never visited here before but we walked past and it looked lovely! I'm all for small businesses so I was well up for giving it a try. Thai is one of my favourite types of food but I find that it is quite difficult to find really good Thai food so I wasn't sure what to expect.


One thing that really stood out for me was how cosy the restaurant looked. 

 The deep red and bright gold colours of the decor gave a really warm feel and with it being quite a small restaurant, it was nice and intimate. The perfect place for a chilled catch up!


The food definitely didn't disappoint!

For starters, my friend ordered a green papaya salad which she loved. This consists of garlic, peanuts, chillies, lime and greens and can usually be quite spicy.

I opted for crab spring rolls with a sweet chilli sauce. These were divine! I'm not a massive fan of spice, boring I know, but the sweet chilli sauce was perfect! It had a bit of a kick to it but as it was mixed with a sweet flavouring, it wasn't over-bearing. I also loved the presentation of this dish - the added flower was so pretty!


For my main I ordered the Sizzling Beef with a side of sticky rice. The beef came with a side of sauce which I personally didn't put onto the beef. The beef was already cooked in flavourings which were amazing so I didn't want to change the taste! I did however use the sauce over my rice to add some extra flavour. The rice was really nice on its own - something I've found to be quite rare as it is usually too dry/tasteless without any sauce. Everything was delicious.


My friend chose the mixed vegetable dish with a side of coconut rice which again, she thoroughly enjoyed. 

What I particularly liked was that there was something for everyone on the menu. With my friend being vegan, it can be quite difficult at times for her to eat out as there is usually something in pretty much every dish that she is unable to eat. However, the restaurant ensured that the green papaya salad contained no trace of fish oil (which would usually be used in this dish) and there were plenty of vegan-suitable dishes on the menu. In addition, there were a mix of both meat, vegetable and seafood dishes - some spicy and some not - which caters for everyone.


I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Manchester/Stockport area.

Patima is located at:
234 Wellington Road South

Overall, I had such a lovely visit to Patima and will definitely be returning. The value for money was amazing with the quality of food and the service being perfect. I couldn't recommend it more!
