Consistently good - Patara is a hidden gem just off Oxford Street and the perfect place for a sophisticated lunch stop between shopping or on an evening out. The Beef Cheek Penang melts in your mouth and the service is fantastic. Highly recommend.

My girls and I had such a good time, I found this place on Trip advisor as we needed somewhere close to the theatre to have a pre-theatre meal and I booked on the day for three of us. As we were in a little bit of a rush we had the set menu which was incredible value for money, the rice was so delicious with sprinklings of saffron and I had the sea bass which was just perfect. I could start talking about the dessert but I fear the keyboard on which I type would die with the level of salvation alone. All awesome and we plan to go back very soon. Oh and the staff were awesome and couldn’t do enough to help us. We explained we had to be in and out quickly due to the show and they made that happen without it feeling rushed. Love it – double thumbs up! Oh and it looks better than the pictures online!

I have always enjoyed dining at Patara however my most recent experience at Patara Berners Street was average. The service was not at a level you would expect from this type of restaurant. It took at least 15 mins before we were offered to order our drinks. Prawn crackers were only served once you had ordered your main meal where as I am used to these being served as soon as you are seated. The food was satisfactory but their customer service could do with a lot of improvement. I did not feel like I was at a high end Thai restaurant at all-it was all very mediocre. We had booked the restaurant on a 50% off main and starter when you order 2 mains and 2 starters. When the bill came this wasn't taken into account and I had to inform the waitress. Although the bill was changed without any fuss this is not what is expected of this type of restaurant. With the food being so expensive and there being a 12.5 % service charge I expected a much better experience. With regret I will not be dining at the Berners Street Patara again and would prefer to eat at the Soho/Oxford street restaurant.

Very good service (although suffering from the current trend of interrupting your conversation to ask you 3-4 times during your meal if everything is OK, which is excessive and rather annoying), and very nice ambience. But the menu has changed substantially from the extensive one they had for years in their other branches, to a much more limited one - apparently this change has happened in all the branches, according to their website. The quality of the food is still good, but nothing like the amazing, unparalleled one of the past. Still a lovely restaurant, if you've never been before, but for the rest of us quite a disappointment.

The restaurant ambience is very stylish & service was excellent. We enjoyed our starters, satay, duck spring rolls and salt & pepper calamari very much, but the main courses didn't quite live up to what preceded them. The beef was a bit on the tough side & the duck very chewy. The wine also needs sorting out, we ordered one bottle & then were told it was out of stock, the next choice was in stock, but after we finished it and asked for another bottle we were told that we'd had the last one, perhaps Christmas had been exceptionally busy!

Excellent restaurant. Amazing Thai food in a beautiful setting, staff were impeccable and the the food was fabulous! The set menu gave you a chance to experience the best of the menu and we were not disappointed. We were celebrating getting married in Thailand 1 year ago and being in Patara was the next best thing to being in Thailand itself

nice restaurant, It is a chain so the food is not the best or authentic. I did find the portions to be tiny for the lunch meals, so beware. What put me off was 1 our waiter did not have much knowledge on the menu and our food was served by one waiter who had this really BAD body odour, and was terrible when he was putting our food down on the table, getting drinks, we got the smell so bad. - bit worrying how your food would be cooked. Also when we finished our meal we spent ages waiting for someone's attention and paying for our food. All the waitresses were nice and friendly but not sure about waiters.

Excellent! Booked at very short notice, and was accommodated with no trouble. Service was extremely attentive, and most importantly the menu was full of great choices, and the food was very tasty, especially the curried seabass chargrilled banana leaves which was exquisite. Very nice decor and pleasantly quiet atmosphere - my only minor criticism was that the background music was a bit naff. Very enjoyable evening though!

The restaurant itself is lovely and decorated to a very high standard. The service needs significant improvement, our server was frankly a bit odd to the point of being a bit rude. Staff were obviously instructed to up-sell but this was done in a very blatant way which detracted from our enjoyment. Our starters were very nice but the mains were nothing special and very overpriced for what we received. My main course was described as having aubergine, which was one of the key reasons I picked it, when in fact this was 'pea aubergine' which was misleading. Overall I would not recommend and would not return.

Amazing service yet again! We enjoyed a delicious lunch from the main menu although the lunch menu looked very good value. We had a Patara Platter to start then had a variety of king prawn pad thai, seabass, scallops...but the nicest was the penang beef cheeks but overall everything was lovely! Highly recommend.

Had dinner with a friend, we found the service very attentive. We were offered recommendations from the menu, which we took, and the food was all delicious. Beautiful decor in the restaurant and great location. It is expensive, but you are getting the food and service you'd expect for the price.

The service in Patara on Berners Street was really exceptional - diligent, helpful and conscientious. The food was exquisite; tenderstem broccoli cooked perfectly and the panang tofu was extremely tasty. Very nice interior and overall atmosphere. It is reasonably expensive but, given the exceptional standards, worth the price.

We had a lovely evening at Patara - a party of 9 people - food and service were both spot on. They gave us a great area at the rear of the restaurant with a large square table which worked very well. Refreshingly nice! Thank you.

We were extremely disappointed with the whole experience. The quality of food and drink was well below the standard of other established Patara branches where we'd ordered the same menu items before. My cocktail tasted like orange squash, and I had to send back. The complimentary snacks were a stingy 2 prawn crackers per person on our table, not the usual full up basket. Our meals were tasteless, and although the restaurant looked good and the staff were very nice, it was unbearably hot on a warm summers evening without proper air conditioning so it was a race to finish and leave as soon as possible. We won't be going back which is a great shame as we had high hopes of a nice night out.

Great food and drinks, friendly staff and nice atmosphere. We went on a Tuesday and was a quiet night with only 4 other tables busy still the place and decor felt warm. The food is incredible especially the prawn pad Thai and the salads. Good for special occasions/ romantic dinner

Really nice food, good service, lovely ambiance. The champagne offer on quandoo was extremely good value. However, I find this restaurant to be a bit over-priced (even if the food is good). Portions were rather small, even the expensive portion of rice, and not every dish was a hit.

Great food and attentive servers. They catered very well for the needs of vegan, gluten free and nut free (set menu). Very polite also. Always willing to assist. The first time I tried vegan food and it was delicious! Great accompaniments. Noodles were great. Lovely sorbet to end.

We went for a family (and other halves) meal to celebrate both my kid's birthdays and the fact that my son would be out of the country for 3 months - including Christmas. It was a great choice - by my daughter. Friendly, helpful staff, and excellent food.

The food is excellent, the staff were very kind and gracious. The only thing was that we went at a very quiet time for lunch, and I think because of this service was a bit slow. However, we had a very enjoyable time and would definitely go back!

The food was good and the service upon arriving at the restaurant was ok. The menu differed completely from that online as prices for lobster jumped from £20 to £42! When we were seated a member of staff spoke quite harshly to me regarding the terms and conditions and then never returned to explain what he meant. Nearing the end one person from my party paid by cash and never recieved their change. The same waiter then forced us to pay a service charge of £35 which didn't seem fitting as the service wasn't the best. Never going back. Would avoid going to the Patara Berners Street, I couldn't say anything about the other branches as I haven't been.

During our dinner, a mouse ran across the floor and under our banquette. They moved us to a different table but did not seemed to be phased by it, nor did they offer us any accommodation. The food however is and always has been quite good. I might stick with my usual location however and return to Greek Street.

The food was really good, especially the black cod and the chicken satay. It was quite expensive but overall was worth it as the food and services was very good. Would go back to but probably to the one on Maddox Street and prefer the decor there.

Excelent service, well favoured and interesting food, very well presented. The tasting menu was well sized and a goid selection of dishes. The only issue is the tables for two are too small for the number of dishes that are in the tasting menu.

Good food, good decor. Gave us the drinks menu with some explanation about getting the food one after which was a bit odd. Thought they might be trying to get some cocktails out of us or something. Rest of service was ok though. Some of the dishes were excellent, all were good.

Thai food doesn't get much better than this. The dishes are delicious and beautifully presented, while the service is helpful and efficient. It was rather empty, but that's probably because this branch opened just recently. Well worth a visit!

The food was excellent, spicier and seemed bigger portions than the menu at Maddox Street. Service was attentive and staff were keen to receive feedback in each dish as this is a relatively new branch of the boutique chain.

Whilst I can't fault the staff, service or atmosphere the food was a disappointment this time. Both my husband and I felt extremely sick after eating at Patara with stomach aches and general food poisoning type of symptoms. I would also like to say that there is very little choice for vegetarians and the restaurant really is missing a trick here. All in all, this is a novelty of a restaurant where I would eat once but I doubt I will be visiting again. I would like to say that the staff are extremely polite and helpful.
