One of a family of worldwide restaurants, London’s Patara restaurant brings sophisticated Thai dining to Soho’s Greek Street. 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. Patara Thai restaurant is a haven from Soho’s scruffiness; a glamorous, romantic, authentic, professional spot for an excellent dining experience.

Lovely servers and staff, unique and delicious offerings, pricey, a bit too much deep fried food on the fixed menus

We came here earlier in the week to celebrate one of our daughter’s birthdays and had a really special evening. The staff were very welcoming and efficient, the food was delicious and the overall atmosphere in the restaurant was great. Will definitely come back.

Food is excellent, particularly the Thai curries. I was intrigued with the idea of a Thai wine, a Shiraz, and found it excellent. Service was terrific, hospitable and very charming. A full restaurant meant that ambient noise levels were very high, so difficult to hold a conversation. Otherwise, an excellent experience. Will go again.

Was rather disappointed in price versus quality. For the few dishes we had it was very expensive and not particularly amazing. Also despite being few people in the restaurant, the service was rather slow and as we were rushing to theatre we ended up not having much time to enjoy the food.

This was our second visit to Patara and this visit was as good as our first.
Food was excellent as was the service.
Can recommend the calamari and duck spring rolls and my green Thai curry was delicious. Will definitely be returning.

I have been going to Patara Soho for several years but this the first time the service has been bad. Our food came very late which was very disappointing. I am not sure I will go again as there too many good restaurants in London to choose from

Really good food, very tasty. Waiter service was excellent. We just felt slightly rushed at the end as they needed the table back. Will definitely make it a regular!

We will be back! The staff were so lovely, from the manager to the waiters and hostess.
Food fresh, tasty and good value. The four of us had the pre theatre menu. The wine perfectly chilled. The ambience is calm and the lemongrass scent amazing. We shall try the al a carte menu next time.

We dine at Patara several times each year, every time we visit London. It was very surprising to be told certain menu items had run out, including Earl Grey tea. How can you run out of Earl Grey in a London restaurant?
Overall, we had another fantastic meal and will definitely return.

Me and my partner found the experience below average. We were waiting a very long time to be served and when we were eventually served, the waiter did not bring all our food. We were very disappointed with the whole experience and will not be going to this particular branch again.

Good food and service but found the final bill to be much higher than I would expect. We chose 3 dishes from the menu to share with no wine and paid well over the odds.

The experience was great and the staff were excellent and really made the visit enjoyable. The food was also very good although a little on the expensive side but that is expected for city dining.

I would highly recommend a visit!

Amazing food, good service although the level of English spoken by some of the waiters and waitresses was very poor. The manager did a fantastic job of stepping in where her staff were not able to communicate with us effectively
