An excelent service. The food was really nice and u felt welcome in every situation. Also the toilets were clean and has a nice theme.
A very nice restaurant with super services. People is calm and very polite , food here is amazing. Would like to come back and recommend to everyone.
THIS IS ALWAY MY FAVOURITE THAI RESTAURANT!!!!!! Everything here in amazing!! Love the food, the service and the environment!!! I am sure you will not be disappointed with it!!
Lovely staff and food...went for the cheaper express menu which was ideal for a group of girlies to share Such a pity the place was empty... it deserves to be full
The restaurant itself is lovely and the food is exquisite. However, we ordered at around 9pm, starters, drinks and mains for a group of 5. Drinks arrived promptly, starter arrived about 30mins later with only half of what we had ordered, after a further 20mins of waiting and us calling the waiter who insisted the food was being cooked did he then realise he hadn't put the order for the other half of the starters through. Another 20mins went by and the starters came. Delicious as expected. We ordered another round of drinks after and waited. At around 10:20 we enquired about our mains, again waiter explained that the food was on its way. 10:50 and still nothing, baring in mind half the restaurant was empty, again waiter insists the food was being cooked and would arrive promptly. 11:15 and the waiter explains that yet again the order was not passed on to the kitchen. Food arrived around 15-20mins later and was delicious. We were given a complimentary bottle of wine as an apology, however the second we finished our main course we were hurried out which meant we couldn't enjoy the bottle of wine and left half of it. I have heard excellent reviews about this chain, however I was really not impressed with the service and could not understand why the waiter did not check to see what was going on with our food in the kitchen instead of simply insisting it was on its way after making us wait for so long. For the price the food is worth it and there is a nice atmosphere in the restaurant. I don't know if it was just our bad luck but I won't be returning for a while.
Our first time at Patara was for dinner before the theatre. The ambiance is pleasant with soft warm lighting and plenty of staff being just-the-right-amount of attentive. We had two starters, both of which were fresh, flavorful, and delicious: Chor Muang, lilac dumplings with caramelized chicken and peanut; and Goong Sarong, spiced marinated prawns in filo pastry served with avocado, tomato, pickled cucumber, and greens. Both starters were excellent, but we were really surprised by our main dish, which turned out to be the best Pad Thai we've had. (We live in San Francisco, where there are many, many good Thai restaurants.) We saw many other dishes pass by that we'd love to try, so I imagine we'll be back here on our next visit to London.
Amazing food as always! This is one of my favourite higher-end Thai restaurants in London! Whilst not the cheapest you get what you pay for as the food is consistently delicious, simply but beautifully executed and I always struggle to make a choice on just one starter! We usually sit upstairs but last night it was full when we arrived for our booking at 7.30 so they placed us downstairs which was empty at first and so felt a bit odd. However it did so fill up! My only minor criticism is that drinks ordered took a while to make it to the table. Book this place for a treat and you won't fail to impress!! Do it in advance Thu to Sat as it's very popular.
I went for my partners birthday and the food was fantastic! I contacted the restaurant beforehand if it was ok to bring a cake in the morning of the day of my reservation to surprise my partner with. They happily agreed and on the morning I gave them the cake and candles and asked if they could bring the cake out for dessert. In the evening after our amazing meal they brought out the cake and everyone in the restaurant sang happy birthday to my partner. It was a great night and I will definitely be dining here again.
I went with a group of six people for my birthday. The menu was diverse and plenty of options for banquet, set menu or your own selection. There was also a very good drinks menu with a wide selection. We were made to feel very welcome but were not overpowered. The food was amazing, very fresh and generous portions, definitely a fine dining experience. The waiting staff found out it was my birthday and brought me a complimentary chocolate dessert with a candle! We were all very impressed with the restaurant, staff and above all food
The ambience was really nice. The food was amazing 10/10. A bit pricey but was well worth it. Best thai food i have had in ages. Order a mixed starter which cost £25 plus a tom yum soup with jumbo prawns for the hubby .Phad thai noodles with jumbo prawns patang beef were amazing. Hubby had two beers i had large glase of rose all came to £109. Oh and a side rice which we didnt even need was so stuffed and optional water bottle. Like i said expensive but great for special occasdions.
Has long been one of my favourite London restaurants. They are back on top form with a slightly revised menu. Excellent food - the best Thai around. Superb service (albeit slightly heavy handed with the water and wine). Brilliant wine and cocktails list. Ambience just right. Nearly lost a star for telling us they'd closed the kitchen at 1400 - why would a restaurant do this? But overall worthy of the top mark. I'll keep on going if they keep up these standards (and don't close the kitchen too swiftly).
Really delicious food, very attentive staff innitially and very friendly. We ordered one of the banquets. Unfortunately as the night went on, it was difficult to get a staff members attention to order our meals, re-order wine and ask for the bill. It appears as the restaurant got more busier the less attentice staff were. Despite this, we still had a great time, the restaurant has great ambience and the food is gorgeous and delicious too! Plenty of food given on the banquet, great value for money!
Went to Patara with 3 friends. The food was wonderful and waitresses efficient and courteous but and for us it was a big minus - our reservation was at 6 and at 7.30 literally having just finished eating, still enjoying our wine we were asked to leave the table and sit in the bar area, the two tables in that area were occupied. Managers solution ask one of the couples to move. i realise that the majority of restaurants have a two hour window but being asked to leave the table after an hour and a half is taking the biscuit and it wasn't a cheap meal.
Patara was great. Excellent service, always tending to your needs. The table was reserved and ready for us when we arrived. The food was excellent. We'll definitely be coming here again. The only negative point was that they mistakenly put a £150 bottle of wine onto our bill which was quickly corrected after we spotted the mistake, so just perhaps look out for this. Otherwise, no complaints. Great food!
Lovely restaurant, However, waited 25 mins to order drinks, eventually I got up went tongue bar myself. This was at 7.00, not busy, bar staff chatting at the bar. They brought the drinks over. Guys, when a customer orders a gin & tonic yes pour the gun, yes a slice of Lime, but NO.. Do not pour the tonic, that's for the customer. You drowned the gin with flat tonic, not enough ice, drink ruined. Food was good, sadly physically not hot enough. Like the venue, would go one more time but it's all about the service & you lacked in that department.
Excellent food. Perfect balance off Thai flavors. I am normally not a fan of fine Asian cuisine as when in Asia I always opt for eating street food however, Patara Soho is very authentic.
A fabulous restaurant with lovely food however we waited a long time to order (at 6pm and the restaurant wasn't very full) and when we kept asking to order we were told that her colleague would be along soon. Both with the starter and the main they tried to take away my plate when my friends were still eating. They also tried to take away our second bowl of prawn crackers that we had ordered even though they were half full. Have eaten here a number of times before and will do again but they need to work on these little mistakes.
The food was excellent as was the presentation not to mention the friendliness of the staff. We were visiting here before going off to the theatre and they asked for the outset what our timings were to ensure the food being served on time. I would highly recommend this restaurant and hope to go again with more time on my hands to enjoy one of their banquets.
We thought the food very good, although unusually for a Thai cuisine restaurant, the main course dishes were individual and could not be shared. Service was generally good, but oddly one of the three of us had a very long wait for coffee - after realising the first waiter had forgotten, he alerted a second, who did the same! Eventually, a third member of staff rescued him, and the coffee was produced quite quickly after he had spoken to her.
Wow! Wow! Wow! This restaurant is amazing ... A fantastic greeting from the staff upon arrival. The food is exquisite! My husband I shared sweetcorn fritters and prawn salad to start - incredible flavours!! Then I had lobster green curry - out of this world!! My husband had prawns in chilli - delicious! With some gentle steamed rice. Perfect!!!
Food was excellent as always but the service could have been more attentive and sophisticated. We were placed on a hidden table squashed in the corner of the restaurant by the stairs when all the other tables were available. This has happened the last 3 times I have been and considering I visit frequently, it has slightly altered my experience of the restaurant. The restaurant is my favourite restaurant in London and I absolutely love the quality of the food here but was slightly disappointed by the service.
Restaurant were full, but atmosphere and service were quite good. Taste was really superb as always. I'll recommend this restaurant to my friends. Patara Soho is the best among the Patara restaurant chains.
Food fantastic. We went at lunchtime on a Saturday however and it was virtually empty. We were told kitchen closed at 2.30pm so we had to order all our food before then. Including dessert. So that wasn't ideal. The bar closed at 3.30pm and we had to order all our drinks before then. Quite pricey drinks and food but the food itself was really superb and worth a visit for that. However I would recommend an evening visit!
Had the Patara Banquet set menu. Not cheap, but you get so much food for your money. The Crisp Sea Bass in Tamarind Sauce a personal favourite. My partner and I agreed the Dark Chocolate Pudding was probably the best dessert we'd ever had. So yeah, it's a pretty top place!
The food and the service were amazing. All in all a very positive experience and I would highly recommend going there for a lovely dining experience. They made a mistake with my whiskey, but that is just a minor issue when considering how friendly everyone was. The restaurant is also well designed and is a good place to take your date.
Great tasty food. Especially the lamb shank Massaman curry and black cod in ginger. Jasmine tea is also recommended. The only reason for a 5 instead of a 6 is that it was very busy and it was difficult to hear each other as noise levels were high. If you've tasted authentic Thai food then you'll love it here.
The restaurant was lovely, as was the food and service. We were seated downstairs which is not as nice as the top floor but it was a Saturday night. There was a large party who were being very loud and raucous which slightly spoiled our evening. However this of course was beyond the control of the restaurant.
Food was amazing, our table was not the best but still okay.service was good, however we had to wait to be seated for 10min plus they gave us a drink menu in the meantime but never came to take the orther. Other than that all was good.
Awesome food, awesome service. Arrived slightly early but the friendly staff were able to accommodate us. Service was spot on, attentive but not overly so. The food was plentiful and so tasty - fantastic! The best Thai I've found in London ... and I've tried a few!
Best Thai Food we've eaten this side of Thailand. We had the lovely tasting menu: although it was much food, we ate it all because it was so good. Service was great. Only negative point was that we found that the courses followed each other too quick.
Really nice restaurant, the sauce on the beef cheek curry was exquisite, however I found the meat a little too chewy, given the price. The mixed platter starter worked very nicely for 2. Service was very good throughout. Would go again, though it's a bit out of my budget for anything other than a one off!
Had the most amazing lunch - chose from the à la carte menu so had several different starters which were all delicious. Prawn and chicken Pad Thai were amazing and the beef curry was given a big thumbs up! The staff were very friendly and attentive.
We had to rush to get to the theatre which meant we were unable to enjoy the ambience of the restaurant but the food and service was exceptional! The staff were really friendly and took great care to ensure we wouldn't miss our show. Superb Thai!!
Three big mistakes made with our orders, similar happened with our previous visit. Food quality good once they get the orders correct. Shame as we really like the place but feel let down with all the errors that were made with our orders. Wrong starter, duck instead of chicken and forgot rice. The staff should repeat everything back to their customers to try and avoid mistakes. Waiter did appear to hear us clearly at the time so we can only assume he keyed in the wrong information onto his iPad.
The food was good! I got the King Prawn Pad Thai which is made so well and my partner got the Lamb Chops and papaya salad. I greatly appreciate the attentive service we received! I just haven't given it 6 because it is quite a busy atmosphere (we went on a Thursday evening).
I have just got back from working in Thailand and so was hoping for the same authentic welcome and quality of food - Patara did not disappoint. I would highly recommend the mango cheesecake - it was delicious. The service was very good too.
Great food and service - table initially a little small for two and the set Patara banquet feast but they helped by pushing another table together. Set Banquet pretty awesome especially with the Lobster Pad thai - make sure you are hungry !!
Patara Soho was fantastic! Ate there prior to theatre and alerted the staff to our need for timely service and departure time to make the theatre start. Service was quick, pleasant and timely. Ordered two of their signature dishes and both were outstanding.
My friend and I had the set menu which was very delicious. There was a lot of food, and it was great to try something different. Very large group of people were very loud. Would have been better if the large group was not seated in the middle of the restaurant.
The food was amazing, really great Thai food, and the staff were lovely. It's nicely located in the Soho area and just a short walk to the local theaters. My only gripe, because I'm a tight-arse, is that it's not the cheapest. That being said, I would most definitely recommend it.
Lovely atmosphere, food very tasty would highly recommend. It was my boyfriend's birthday so they were very accommodating and produced a chocolate pudding with a candle in and sang happy birthday which really made the night, really pleased with the whole experience.
Great place , good food , not the best we have eaten but it was fair , to be honest the food was a little over priced for what it was and for the price I'd expect a little better quality of food , the scallop's to me were a little under cooked , and the pak choi a little over cooked
Absolutely outstanding !!! Food was exquisite. We had the set menu for 2, it was stunning ! The best Thai I've had in London. Thoroughly recommend u try this restaurant ! If u love Thai, it's a must !! Enjoy xx
My second visit to Patara (Soho) was as pleasurable as my first. Beautifully prepared food in attractive room (with kind acoustic and no music!!) and loveliest service imaginable. This is Thai food at its more elegant and can't wait to return.
Delicious authentic food and an excellent range of choice. Starters, mains and desserts all delicious - I can highly recommend the soft shell crab salad, massaman curry and tamarind duck. Fantastic service from friendly, polite staff in a lovely peaceful restaurant.
2 years ago i had a great meal + service- fast forward to today and both the meal + service was mediocre at best. All dishes were over-salted; the king prawns undercooked; staff were not very friendly (just very matter-of-fact and no expressions on their faces); we waited more than 20 minutes after our starter to get the main course which i had to followup twice to ask. A feeble apology was attempted, but even the manager didn't come over to extend an apology. I can understand a slow kitchen on a Saturday night when the tables are full, but this was a half-filled Tuesday evening. i am disappointed and will no longer be recommending Patara to guests or friends. What a pity...
great service and excellent food. No matter people had reservations or walked-in, everybody was seated. something that happens rarely these days. the aromas and food brought me right back to Thailand - one of our favorite SE Asian countries. a bit pricey but i loved the meal.
It's the second time that I have dinner at Patara and the food is absolutely amazing. The service is very good and the atmosphere is also excellent. I highly recommend this restaurant. It has become one of my favourites.
As someone who comes from Asia I always have reservation about South East Asian food abroad. Turned out to be nice Thai food & good atmosphere to chat & catch up with friend though the price is quite steep.
I love Thai food and Patara is not bad for food. The service is very slow though. I waited for over 10min and no one came to ask me if I need any drink so I have to ask for it. The food is okay but the dessert, the chocolate pudding in Patara banquet menu is quite disappointing.
