Description: 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.

“Thai as it should be”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Good service, clean flavours, plenty of choice including for vegetarians. Unlike some of the other Thai options in London, Patara is neither cheap and nasty nor pretentious.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

Ooh my those dumplings - heaven in your mouth! So were the stuffed chicken wings! Pepper beef for mains were the highlight :) happy tummies and they just aced it! Rice cakes wrapped win duck and prawn were ok. I also thought the chicken green curry was tasteless and the curry was white.. The espresso martini was a win! Soo many wins I would certainly go back for more.. :)

Celebrated moving to a new home and it was a good choice! Very busy with tourists but the service was faultless :)

“Tasty refined Thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2013

If you're looking for a great Thai near the West End, this is a great find. Tucked down the road from Oxford Circus, its unassuming exterior yields some of the best Thai food I've had in London.

The menu has a great range of dishes without being overwhelming, as well as a decent wine list. I've visited here a number of times on business, however it would also be great for a romantic meal or for a group of friends.

The food itself is always tasty, I'd thoroughly recommend the dim sum style starters and beef with lime main dish.

Service can be slightly lacking at times, I found I had to call the waitress over several times to order drinks, food etc. However you're always greeted courteously.

If you're in the area, look no further

“Good quality Thai food,a little noisy atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

The restaurant has convenient location, but not the best interior. The tables a literary one over another and one can easily reach into his neighbor's dish, but is unable to hear his partner's words. The food is of very good quality, but nothing exceptional. Good, but not elaborated wine list. Service is quick and helpful.

“Perfect food but really expensive as well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

... as the portions could be definitely bigger. Even though the taste is really outstanding, therefore we went there several times. For a special occasion a great choice!
