Tastefully decorated with plenty of atmosphere thanks to subdued lighting, huge pots of orchids, flickering candles, silk-covered banquettes and Thai figurines inlaid with glass mosaic tiles, it’s ideal for a romantic dinner for two. The Patara kitchen is ambitious, producing excellent creations of classic Thai cuisine like tom yum goong soup; beef with green curry and;, of course, pad Thai noodles. The service is renowned for its excellence and the wine list begins at a reasonably-priced level. Someone in the kitchen has an eye for beauty, too, because at Patara restaurant each dish is exquisitely arranged to delight your eye as well as your palate.

Very accommodating for one of our party of threes late arrival. Spicy levels were accurate - mild was indeed mild, and very hot spices were very, very hot in a separate dish. Excellent overall experience for pre-theater dining.

This review is about the special daytime menu.
The selection was good and the price excellent.
Portions great. The chili calamari was amazing, cooked to perfection.
The sea bass very tasty.
Staff friendly and welcoming.
Would recommend and would be interested to try in the evening as we were there at 4pm.

Loved Patara the service was impeccable from the moment me and my date stepped in till we left. The prawn satay starters were my favourite, they were sooooo ridiculously good we ordered double portions each. I’ll definitely be recommending and coming back to try more dishes.

Our second visit after having such a positive first experience. Our daughter chose it for her graduation celebration dinner as she’d enjoyed her food so much the first time. Staff very friendly, welcoming and professional, attentive without being intrusive, make you feel special. Service is impeccable. The food is delicious!! My daughter is vegetarian and appreciates the vegetarian section of the menu, the veggie spring roles are the best she’s ever had! My husband loved the duck spring roles and the green curry, best he’s ever had too! The Patara passion cocktail is lovely and with trying! Overall a delicious meal, excellent service in a beautiful and welcoming atmosphere. My husband said we should eat there every time we visit London, which is often as our daughter lives there!

La decoración del local es muy tailandesa. Pero el servicio algo lento y al ambiente muy ruidoso. Una pena porque lis sabores te trasladan a Tailandia pero el ruido del local estropea la experiencia

Booked last minute but the restaurant had noticed and welcomed us warmly. Having not eaten here before we opted for the ‘banquet’ and every dish in every course was tasty and beautifully cooked. Friendly efficient service without being over-attentive. Ambiance was lovely too, the decor and table spacing made the meal feel very special and intimate.

The restaurant was hot and when asked if the AC was on they replied yes but it felt very hot and it did not feel any cooler for the duration of the meal.

All the chicken we had (in the starter and pad thai main course) was dry which is quite disappointing.

My brother had the beef curry and that was dry as well - noted as a signature dish.

The lamb massaman curry, however, was absolutely delicious and worthy of a signature dish mention. My mum had another signature dish (garlic king prawns) and she thought they were overcooked which cause the prawns to be a bit dry. We also had the ginger black cod and the sauce was too sweet which was disappointing as the fish was drenched in it.

All in all, it was an okay experience but for a meal that included no alcohol and for dry meat, it was not worth the price we paid.

The food was GREAT and also the service BUT it was too hot in the room and I had a spotlight on me, so please fix the lighting in the place.
