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.

We booked a table at 2 pm, totally unaware that the restaurant closes at 3 pm, even though it was a Saturday. I had booked the table because I wanted to have a nice meal and spend some quality time with a friend I had not seen in a long time. On arrival, we were told straight away that we had to order ASAP as the kitchen was closing in 5 minutes. The food was ok but everything felt really rushed and we could not enjoy our time at the restaurant.

Absolutely delicious food. Great range of options on the menu. They willingly agreed to remove mushrooms from our dishes and the service was phenomenal. A wonderful romantic pre-theatre meal. Equally, others appeared to be having a fabulous time celebrating birthdays and catching up with friends.

The food is delicious! The environment is quiet. But the price is a little bit high. There is something disappointing me that I was being informed no more crabs and water spinach after I’ve ordered the cattleya set. So the crab yellow curry and water spinach in the set were changed to king prawn yellow curry and bak choi. I think the staff should inform me before I order so that I can have a choice for other dishes. Anyway, the overall experience is not bad. The staff are helpful and polite, the food is delicious.

Have been before food was not the usual, sea bass was very greasy, rice not cooked well and the pad Thai was not as good as I’ve had before. A little disappointing

Delicious food! Calamari could have done with a few more minutes, but the rest of the items (duck spring rolls, chicken satay, veg spring rolls, ginger beef, pad thai) were absolutely delicious!!!!

I'd lost my lovely cashmere scarf there a few weeks before and they kept it for me. Such lovely staff, really welcoming, efficient and warm.

We had cocktails, four starters, main courses, sides, wine and the price including service was just under £150. Excellently priced.

Only comment was it was a bit bright in there, so dimming the lights a bit more would make it even more intimate, but that's a small thing!

Really enjoyed our meal here, the staff although busy with several large parties were really attentive, making sure our water was topped up, table was clean after each course. Food was really tasty and plenty of it.
Would definitely eat here again

Food was great, we always visit this place when we come to London and is always consistent. However, last time we visited, ambiance not like before, it used to be intimate and cozy, but now its not, the lights were too bright as if you are sitting in a canteen, the servants are all female and not too friendly, it should be nice to mix- males. The restaurant manager who used to be years before covid, is not here anymore, thats too sad, we didnt feel welcome as we used to, its pitty. Also there are no gluteen free options as it used to be, they only have vegetarian options with V sign, there used to be G sign (gluten).

Went for a celebration but sadly food was not half as nice as we remembered it. So much fish sauce in everything was difficult to breathe and taste or smell anything else so completely ruined the whole dinner. had neither of the two desserts (chocolate and coconut) that we wanted. The waiters were lovely, but the food was a massive disappointment especially as came back from a previous excellent experience a few years ago. Sadly will not be coming back again.

Booked a pre-theatre offer for dinner at 1730 but was not available when I got to the restaurant. Additionally, the quality of the food has gone a lot worse since I was here last, definitely the £20 curry was not worthy, it was just ok, nothing more than what you can get at a takeaway for a fraction of the price. Very disappointed by the whole thing.
