Wow. Ordered lychee martinis which were absolute heaven. Then opted for the sharing starter which was not only delivered promptly but with guidance on how to enjoy and and which sauces to eat with which dishes. Mains were also perfect. Lovely setting. Can’t fault it.

Great food and fantastic service a bit on the pricy side but you get what you pay for sometimes and it’s worth it here. My only gripe was it was really noisy. I’m not sure if it was just a loud crowd or if the acoustics amplified normal conversation but either way it was difficult to hear each other at times.

A great place to eat before a show. Did was event and the staff were very friendly and attentive . We were watching Harry Potter parts 1 and 2 so needed the fits to be prompt which it was - in fact we had plenty of time and the restaurant is a short walk away up Greek Street.

Lovely food and lovely atmosphere. At times I've found it challenging to find decent Thai food (and not a watered down version) but this place ticks the box. It is expensive but definitely worth it for a special occasion (as we were celebrating). Exemplary service from the staff.

2nd time at Patara Soho and it was just as good as the first!
Delicious food, great service, calming lemongrass scent, beautiful restaurant.
I ate green chicken curry which was full of flavour and one of the tastiest I’ve had, yum!
My husband ate prawn pad Thai and chilli prawns which were also superb.
Looking forward to my next visit already.

Patara is an amazing restaurant. We visited in 2012 on our last visit to London from the US. We had to return with our kids who love Thai food. The experience is 2019 was incredible. The staff are amazing and extremely knowledgeable about the menu. Every was incredibly fresh and delicious. The drink were fantastic too.

Great atmosphere, staff was very friendly, good variety of food and good choice of wine. The only thing lacking - no background music, all you could hear is people chatting.

I love Patara - we found Patara first in Vienna and we’re thrilled to see they are in London as well and have been several time now and never disappoints. We went as a family of 4 with teenage daughters and had a great meal - we opted for banquet set menu for 4 which had loads of different food with bags of flavour! The drinks menu is good and service is exceptional! It’s not cheap but it’s worth it!

Wasn’t my cup of tea. Ordered beef in black pepper and it appeared and tasted very watery. The beef had a peculiar after taste that I didn’t quite fancy and it was significantly lacking flavour and wasn’t tender, quite hard to swallow. The egg fried rice was okay. The service was really good, staff very attentive, regularly refilled our glasses of water. Ambience was really nice and could be intimate. Attention to detail for service was really good

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!

Very good food and service, but pretty noisy (in the basement, early on a Saturday night). Not enough to prevent a return visit though.
