About Patara - Maddox Street

Lovers of fresh, authentic Thai food with a contemporary slant simply must make a booking at Patara - a super-stylish eatery on Maddox Street in Oxford Circus. We adore this hip chain of restaurants - which has branches in Taipei, Singapore and Geneva - and the critically acclaimed food here is To Die For. Decorated with chocolate brown leather banquettes, wooden wall carvings and bundles of bamboo, Patara is a hit with Soho media types for business lunches, and is popular in the evenings with fashionable foodies. Signature dishes include the Nua Tom Kati - beef in an aromatic coconut reduction with fresh lime, lemongrass and chilli, and the Gang Kua Goong - prawns in a kaffir lime coconut curry with betelnut leaves.
