Enjoyed yellow curry crab very much. The beef was also tasty but getting cold after 5 mins.

The food was quite nice but not exceptional, and both my friend and I didn't digest it very well. The restaurant had very little atmosphere.

Such a lovely restaurant. Service was great, mocktails were tasty but the food was delicious. Best prawn and tofu Pad Thai I've had in a very long time! Seabass and prawn and asparagus rolls were amazing!

It was good to see that Patara in Maddox Street had reopened following the lockdown and I was looking forward to good Thai food. It was disappointing that having been open only a few days they had run out of the red wine, vegetarian taco starter and Chinese water spinach side. It also seems that they have increased the prices since lockdown so I feel there are better more affordable options for dinner in the area.

I regularly eat here and it is always a great meal. It has everything: friendly staff, modern twists on traditional dishes, and a well thought out drinks offer. It's not the cheapest Thai you'll ever have, but it'll definitely be one of the best!

Went to celebrate my friend's birthday and we opted for £40 set menu each, and for the amount of food we got, I felt it was poor value for money. Quality of food was excellent.

I've been to Patara several times in the past and thoroughly enjoyed it but this time I felt it really wasn't that good. We opted for one of the set menus, all the starters were luke warm and apart from the Thai green curry (which was amazing) the other main courses were average. The dessert was far too sweet and tasted shop-bought. Portion sizes were also small. And then there was the blow of the bill which was just ridiculous; so over-priced. Overall I was disappointed - my expectations were high given the great meals I've had there before.

We ate here before going to a gig at Palladium. Food is delicious and beautifully presented. We had curries for main which were on heaters to keep them warm, plus there were heated plates, so those were both nice touches. It is pretty pricey, but I guess that's a consequence of having such a great site beside Regent Street. Service was outstanding, with them even being considerate enough to let us leave a bag in cloakroom to collect later. Would recommend.

A busy branch at weekends. Pleasant staff. High quality food though not always piping hot. Very expensive for what you get so not great value. Maybe that's just central London....

The service was rushed, not particularly friendly, we felt like they just wanted us out and we had to constantly get up and get the staff’s attention to place the food order and get the bill. The got the food order wrong for one person but in general the food is very tasty and nice! The restaurant was buzzing and the atmosphere was great! The cocktails literally tasted of juice and we asked if there was even any alcohol in them!! I would love to return for the food but not worth it given the service, very sorry.

Very disappointed. Very slow service to an extent that we had to keep calling someone to top our wine glasses. I would have been happy with thebottle on the table. At one point I got the attention of one of the waitress and since she was so busy talking to her felow colleague she decided to ignore me. Food was cold. I order Pad Thai for my mains and the noodles were all shaped to the dish. Awful. We ate the food as we had waited all day to enjoy this evening. Dessert well _ mine was tasteless. I ordered mango cheesecake and my husbands was edible. I had booked it as it was my husbands birthday. When we asked for the bill we once again had to waita long time for it to arrive but then they came back with the same dessert my husband had had with a candle on the deseet we ordered or bring a different desert. Then they said because we were lighting the candle bill took a long time to come. Hope thats ok. Well no its not ok. I wasted my money and I could have taken him elsewhere.

Paragraph is a good Thai option although on the pricey side. A rowdy table did not enhance the atmosphere.

I used to come to this restaurant on a very regular basis and the Pad Thai with king prawns was my absolute favorite dish! It had been a very long time since my last visit and I was very excited to taste my favorite dish...what a disappointment....a bland dish (I had to ask for salt to get some taste) with 2 king prawns (it used to be 6) I guess inflation as been quite aggressive on the seafood front!
I had the Chilli Calamari for starter, a generous portion, but again lacking in flavor and ...they had run out of sweet sticky rice for the thai mango, so no dessert :(
Ambiance is always nice, service is friendly, but we had to strain to get attention.
I will have to be convinced to go back, a real letdown!

We had a great early dinner at Patara on Saturday evening before going onto the Palladium. The drinks and starters arrived promptly but the main course was quite a wait and we all got a bit anxious clock watching, once the staff knew, they brought the food and we just made it. Food was delicious and staff very polite. If you're up against time, do make sure they know. The restaurant was very busy and a great atmosphere.

We’ve been coming here for years but it certainly has gone steadily downhill, the food was not up to scratch, we sent one dish back for the chef to taste - it was ghastly! It was so loud downstairs the waiter took our order wrong as he couldn’t hear. I will not be returning

Great food but absolutely terrible service, we were charged a bottle of wine even though we only had a glass. I love food at Patara but would not go back to the Oxford Circus branch and will tell all my friends not to.
