Patara Oxford Circus
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Concentrate on the food and you won’t be disappointed by the Patara chain. The menu has a wide choice of dishes, with good use of UK produce weaved into classic and modern, upmarket Thai cuisine.
The satay is better than most, with mouth-wateringly tender morsels of chicken, beef and prawn, and a sauce that begs to be mopped up to the last drop. Corn-fed chicken with pineapple and ginger in a garlic sauce was equally delicious, and all dishes displayed competent cooking and a clear respect for quality ingredients. There’s a fantastic cocktail menu too, making this a great venue for a night on the town.
Unfortunately, on our visit there was a large party dining, and a 9pm table didn’t materialise until 9.30pm. We were left waiting with no drinks and no apology. Decor is stylish, with wood panelling, cosy low lighting and minimalist furnishings. Ask for a table in the main section, or downstairs if you prefer a cosier vibe, but avoid the small corridor of tables by the bar. Overall, this is a pleasing restaurant, but its popularity can lead to shortcomings in service.
