Patara may be a chain, but there are very few Thai clichés to speak of. The sitting Buddhas and wood carvings formerly decorating its branches are being steadily (and expensively) replaced with a contemporary palette of greys and marine blues, accented with angular mirrors, feature lights and muted, modern wall art. The menu strives to be ‘authentically different’ and succeeds via innovative twists on tradition, such as pad thai tossed with lobster meat, say, or massaman curry made with fall-apart lamb shanks. Fragrant Thai flavours crop up in unexpected dishes too, with tofu slices glazed in tamarind and lemongrass, before being pan-fried and sprinkled with crisp shallots, for example. Look out, too, for signature dishes, from coconutty dumplings filled with caramelised chicken and peanuts, to ginger-marinated beef fillet stir-fried with chilli, lime leaves and tangy green peppercorns. Delectable vegetarian and seafood set menus and playful cocktails are also excellent.

I bought a SquareMeal gift voucher for my husband's birthday. He decided to try the Patara in Soho. When he made the reservation, he mentioned in his message that he was going to use a SquareMeal gift voucher. He also mentioned the same thing at the restaurant when we were giving our order to the waitress, and again when he asked for the bill. Having mentioned the gift voucher three times, one could have hoped for some kind of a reaction if everything was not all right, but no - nobody said anything to us about it. The full bill was brought to our table, and when we asked why the gift voucher had not been taken into account, we were told the restaurant knew nothing about the SquareMeal website, the list, or gift vouchers. They tried to make us pay the full bill. As my husband was able to find the SquareMeal listing on his mobile phone and show the manager that his restaurant was indeed on the list, the manager then phoned somebody, and, eventually, our bill was corrected. We were however expected to pay the remaining part of the bill, were not offered complimentary desserts as an apology, or absolutely anything. I don't know how the restaurant could have handled the situation any worse.
On the basis of our experience, the staff of Patara Soho is incredibly unprofessional, clueless, and rude. As for the food, my chicken tasted like reheated remains from the day before.

I went to Patara with my partner this weekend and was pleasantly surprised. The service was great and we were seated within minutes. We shared a starter of Thai Tacos which were delicious; we could have eaten a portion each! Our mains were equally as nice, I went with the crispy duck leg and my partner went for the rack of lamb. As our first trip to Patara we were very impressed, great food and great value for money. We recommend!

I love coming here and was suprised to see a few bad reviews. We've always had nothing but great service, they always seat us at a table even if we haven't booked, and if we have to wait there's a candle lit area as you walk in where they sit you with a cocktail and some thai crackers until your table is free.
I think they have a varied selection of food, from stirfries, to currys, noodle dishes, salads, and a good range of vegetarian dishes.
My personal favourites are the dumplings to start, presented beautifully with a sweet sauce to dip. There's three different flavours, it doesn't say what flavours they are, but the purple one is the best! Very sweet, and almost nutty tones.
Then the wild boar in a red curry sauce, is always cooked so the meat is tender with a spicy/sweet flavour – delicious!
Usually we are too full for pudding, but once they bought some free sorbet and ice creams over for us to try which was a really nice suprise!
Overall great service, yummy cocktails, beautiful decor in a romantic candle-lit thai style setting. And a delicious varied menu. One of my favourites!
