Patara - Oxford Circus
Some of the best food I've ever eaten . Everything is so fresh and tasty.
The people who work there are incredibly friendly and helpful .
Service was painfully slow despite the restaurant not being particularly busy. Food was fine, but I much prefer the Greek Street location for everything from decor to ambiance.
Extremely rude waiter - shockingly rude
The manager however made up and was apologetic and took over serving us.
We had to wait a while for our food, I ordered the lobster pad Thai and the lobster was very dry and didn’t taste fresh. Also my friend found a hair in his rice. It was all very over priced however the service was decent but not worth going again.
Best thai food in London
Patara is a wonderful place and excellent for vegans!
not authentic thai, poor service and over priced of some kind cuisine
I was given a table in what seeemed to be a passage way to the restaurant and a table I had specifically requested not to have!
Superb food as always, the tuna carpaccio never fails to impress, brilliant waiter and non intrusive service
Poor service, no gluten free starter option in set menu and refusal to switch one in, brought bottled water without being requested, poor cocktails, sea bass was tasteless and not spicy at all. Disappointing.
We had the early bird menu which had plenty of choice
I recommend the beige salad (very hot)
Calamari, noodles, sea bass, egg custard ice cream and guava and passion fruit sorbet
Very nice food. Enjoyed everything I tried. Would recommend, nice attentive service.
Lovely restaurant and great staff.Nice experience. Food was tasty and reasonable priced. Quick service at lunch for office workers.
Unfortunately the quality of the food at Patara has gone drastically downhill. It used to be one of our favourites but the meal we had there tonight was not good. We had the chicken and prawn satays to start with. They were served tepid and looked and tasted like they had been microwaved. It used to be freshly prepared and charred off the grill. I had the braised beef cheeks in red curry sauce but had to send this back as it was cold and the beef was not even mixed in with the sauce. Again, it seems reheated. The worst bit was the rice though. We ordered the sticky rice and it arrived inside a sealed plastic bag. I couldn’t believe that one. I showed it to the waiter and he just took it away and came back with the same rice in a different bowl (but still in the shape of the bag it came from). Not even an apology. I would not recommend Patara to anyone now. Embarrassingly awful.
The pre theatre menu was good value and the food was probably the best thai cuisine I have tried.
A good spot for an informal business meeting near Oxford Circus.
Extremely bad service, seemed like the waiters felt we were a 'burden' when we walked into the restaurant.
Food was extremely BELOW average, i had to ask for extra coconut milk on the side to be added to my Green Curry.
The 'special' Chor muang - Flower-like handcrafted caramelised chicken and peanut steamed
dumplings drizzled with coconut cream - were the WORST dumplings I have had in my life. They were cold from outside and inside, we had to ask for soya sauce atleast to 3 waiters and eventually got it after 15 mins when the dumplings were stone cold.
HORRIBLE experience, will NEVER go back again.
This was just ok. There are so many good restaurants in London and this one just didn’t stack up. Food came out cold. And is pricey for what we got.
Fine dining at a very reasonable price. I was very impressed with the presentation, taste, service, and value. Loved it.
We went to this restaurant as it might be the only one thai restaurant nearby my hotel. We didn't hope much on this restaurant for the taste as it's kind of too mild to be thai food. However, when we arrived at the restaurant, we were quite disappointed to the decoration of the restaurant. It's a bit too casual and doesn't look like thai restaurant in my mind. The service from staff is not professional as well. That staff kept talking and complaining the restaurant to us!
I do hope they can revamp the design, make a new taste to be real thai cuisine and last but not least, train all staff to be more professinal.
Great Service, Great Staff, Superb Food
Food and service are exceptional. The Manager is the most accommodating gentleman and I love eating here. Fish and vegetables are outstanding. Not a meat eater so cannot comment.
Good food , great vegetarian menu choice .
Excellent staff and service
Good food, very nicely cooked and spiced but a little pricey and rather cramped on the ground floor. Would happily go again
Food over priced, doesn’t taste as good as it sounds on the menu. Only a few items that tasted nice. GF item on the menu but not available on the day, limiting options for guest.
Excellent food as always. Lovely friendly staff. Had a long lunch with friends here on Saturday. Never rushed us out ! highly recommend this place...
This was the first time visiting Patara. The experience was amazing, staff were so friendly and helpful. I loved the food and presentation was impeccable. I would definitely recommend and can’t wait to return again. Thank you so much.
Good location and venue but the food wasn't the best Thai cuisine I've had
Nice food and very tasty. Had the set menu/banquet which is very nice but it isn’t cheap at £40 per head plus 12.5% service charge.
It was good food, although the calamari came out cold but as I was with a client, I didn't say anything. For the price it seemed a bit steep. Also, at the end of the meal, they came out with phones to review them on the spot. This seemed a bit bizarre and my client didn't like it at all which was a negative way to end our meeting.
Great place. Nice food. Best prawn pad Thai in my opinion.
Lovely set menu meal - good portions of high quality and tasty food
Very delicious food but quite expensive (I suppose you are in Mayfair).
They got us the wrong order, portion was smaller than usual and I found HAIR in the rice!!!!!!!!
Great. Being a place where the people working there enjoy theirself make the visit a suksess. The food being great is a bonus.
Always a great choice! Excellent food and service.
Brilliant food and great service. Patara is always on point!

Went there with my husband. Fantastic service and food.
