As always, great food and sympathetic service. Tables are far enough apart to be intimate whilst still maintaining the buzzy atmosphere. My favourite branch of Patara.

Relaxed atmosphere, attentive service and excellent cuisine (the satay was wonderful) made this well worth the visit. Patara is a gem tucked away off Regent's Street.

WE arrived earlier than our booked time, but they were pleased to welcome us. When booking I had requested a quiet table as I am deaf and also have hyperacusis. The maitre d' acknowledged my request and showed us through to a table which they had put in an alcove by the window away from the other tables. It was absolutely ideal. We had two gorgeous cocktails to start. I can thoroughly recommend the passion fruit caipirinha , which was just the right balance of sweet and sharp, with a good kick of chahaca to boot. My daughter enjoyed her lychee martini too. We opted for the set menu for two and were not disappointed. Highlights included the most succulent and flavourful chicken satay, and deliciously savoury prawn salad, and some very cute little flower shaped dumplings . And also mustn't forget to mention the fish cakes. All were served with accompanying dipping sauce, peanut sauce and a thai version of bbq/hoisin sauce. And that was just the starters. We had declined the soup, so went straight on to the main courses. The table was heaving with an array of dishes including a chicken and aubergine curry, the most delicately cooked sea bass in a light batter, stir fried vegetables with just the right amount of crunch, a slow cooked fragrant beef dish and sticky rice. We also ordered a Pad Thai as this is my daughter's favourite dish. We had way too much food, but it was so delicious we did our best to eat as much as we could. It would have been nice to have slightly longer between the mains and the dessert, but this didn't disappoint. The chocolate pudding turned out to be a fondant, absolutely oozing with delightful chocolate sauce, and accompanied with a tasty raspberry coulis and some vanilla ice-cream. So despite being full, I managed to find a space to fit it all in.

on arrival we found the restaurant did not have our booking!! Kindly make sure that you are both connected otherwise you will have some very disappointing customers. Anyhow they were gracious enough to find us a table after our spending time at the bar having a drink. Most of the dishes were very good but the service from the senior staff was excellent. The serving staff need a little brushing up. We will return to eat there but will ask the kitchen to spice up the green chicken curry which seemed to be made for the UK palette. Overall experience was very good.

Great service, however the staff were a little bit pushy when it came to ordering each round. We had 3 people ask us to have dessert approximately 5 times within 20 minutes. In terms of food, the tuna tarta wasn't as good as expected, the vegetarian green curry was too watery and the pad thai was a little too sweet and lacked flavour. The highlights were the mango salad, summer rolls, lamb shank and sea bass in dry paste (not the broth one).

For us this is always a "must visit" when we're down from Edinburgh and this weekend was as good as ever. The scallops in lime and chilli starter were succulent Kings, the Tom yum with prawns excellent and I would recommend anyone try the stewed beef in coconut milk, not spicy just amazing. ......and a superb Chenin Blanc for £22, can't wait to return!

I've been to the restaurant several times before but the service was extremely poor. I mentioned vegetarian request (as the party of 5 we were all vegs )when I booked (2 days in advance) but they ran out of tofu / which is the main ingredient for 80% of their veg dishes.i wish they had emailed me and told me before I arrived to the restaurant. The waitress was very grumpy while serving and was rude every time we asked for an extra bowl etc The green curry and spicy noodles were good but the service made the experience below par for us. Hopefully they can look into this as it is a good restaurant otherwise.

Exceptional restaurant, in a quiet location just off Regent Street. Food is delicious & I can recommend the Banquet for sharing, which I have enjoyed several times. The staff are friendly & attentive. I would suggest pre booking for later evening to quarantee a table, as I have only been there early evening and It is very popular.

It's my second visit to this restaurant, having found it by chance, and it lived up to expectation again. It's friendly, comfortable and relaxing with attentive staff. The food is delicious and plentiful, with a wide choice on the menu. There is no rushing you to leave, but booking is probably advisable as it seems very popular.

Wonderful ambience , good service & tasty food. Only thing I felt was portion size bit small as compare to price but excellent quality food. We had order for 2 portions of vegetarian spring rolls, chicken satey ,egg fried rice ( big portion) with chicken Thai curry & veg Noodles. Pricey but classy restaurant at quiet place. Would recommend to visit.

Great food and service. True Thai experience in heart of London. Menu packed with delicious delights . Main dining room is a bit noisy, but manageable. Downstairs area great to escape to if upstairs noise prevents you that quiet space for business or private conversation.

Good service and amazing food in the heart of Mayfair. No waiting time at all and absolute obliging staff are the highlight of the place, coupled with a quiet and classy atmosphere (except for the French gentleman sitting nerby who was being extra loud and not being asked to turn the volume down).

Lovely restaurant. Excellent tasty food, served by attentive staff. I have enjoyed this restaurant several times & look forward to my next visit. However, it is fairly expensive, but worth it for the occasional treat on a night out before a London show.

Ok food but nothing I would rate above average in taste. when it comes to "inventions" they have some new interesting Thai-inspired dishes on the menu but even with that in mind I wouldn't rate them higher than 4 out of 6. A bit overpriced in combination with "pay extra if you want rice to your Thai-meal" does not gain the overall experience.

Patara Oxford Circus is still quite good but has lost some of its shine during the last years (tablecloth has had some stains, seats were not cleant properly from pervious guest).

Lovely service and delicious dishes - I had the lemon grass lamb chop with a piquant green papaya salad and sticky rice balls - fantastic to be tempted out of my Thai ordering habits and with my expectations infinitely exceeded too!

Very attentive staff, from greeting at door to table. We had three different servers constantly around, drinks were quickly replenished. Food was excellent, well presented and tasted great! highly recommended. Only downside was a very loud group close to us, making it difficult to have a decent conversation.

Absolutely fabulous atmosphere and really tasty food. It's bit pricey but meals are amazing good so it's worth to go. Maybe waiters should be little bit less visible, I had impression they were constantly next to our table.

Very nice atmosphere, service and food. Just not happy with the portion. We had business lunch which is a two course meal. Even after the main dish, we were still hungry. Restaurants are about good service, good food and eat enough to leave feeling happy. You don't know until you order how small the portions are.

Excellent food if somewhat over-priced, fairly attentive service (though they should have offered to take coats) in an attractive ambience. The loud unsuitable music was turned down on request, but they didn't have any Thai music (or anything else appropriate).

Food above average compared to most Thai chains in London, but also more expensive. Veggie side dishes cost what main veggie dishes cost elsewhere. However, I did enjoy the veggie dishes - with nice amounts of garlic and chilli.

I had high expectations and overall was disappointed with the food. The scallops in my starter were totally tasteless although the accompaniments to it were tasty and delicately prepared. My main course of duck curry had hints of fine cuisine but somehow disappointed. All portions were small especially the rice portions. The ambience was quite good. Overall it was not great value for money.

Overall a nice experience, but starter platter felt expensive compared to other starters. We had an issue with rice arriving quite a bit after the main course and the it was cold and hard. The staff worked hard to rectify the situation and provided a free dessert.
