About Patara Fine Thai Cuisine

Fine Thai cuisine is the order of the day at Patara, found in Tanglin Mall at the intersection of Grange Road, Napier Road and Tanglin Road. It’s a local hotspot for retail and restaurants, and Patara is one of the top destinations in the complex for those looking for casual Southeast Asian dining and an elegant atmosphere in equal measure. The restaurant has been refining its offering for nigh on twenty years now, and while the menu has evolved to meet the expectations of contemporary palates, the core remains the same: traditional Thai food, beautifully plated, and bursting with fresh ingredients and delicate flavour.

More about Patara Fine Thai Cuisine, Singapore

Patara’s trump card is its devotion to the traditional simplicity and subtlety of Thai cuisine. It’s for this reason that Patara has been able to survive in Singapore’s Thai restaurant scene for over two decades. That said, many make a regular thing out of dining at Patara’s Tanglin Mall restaurant for its ability to balance – balance is key in delicately-flavoured Thai food – tradition with modernity. To this end, Patara has curated, for example, a selection entitled Authentic Tastes of Thai Heritage with the help of famous Singaporean food blogger Iron Chef Chumpol Jangprai.

From this superlatively fresh selection, highlights include the koi pla tuna, a spicy tuna tartare salad with a Thai-style herb dressing, the tom sum pla krabok sweet and sour soup with mullet, the southern Thai-style grilled chicken and the baked Thai-style durian cake with coconut milk. It’s dishes like these that are typical of Patara’s exquisite offering in general, but only part of the reason that diners make a habit of reserving early for tables at this Thai restaurant’s busy Tanglin Road premises. Residents of Tanglin proper know that one of the best ways to enjoy Patara’s considered selection is to weigh in on the affordable lunchtime specials. We know you want to: book now!

One of the place in Singapore that you can find the finest Thai cuisine. Although it is a bit pricey but the food is well worth the money. Nicely cook from fresh ingredients. Not forget to mention about the very good service from the waiters.

Fantastic food! Service was impeccable, the pork cheek salad was my personal favourite. My guests loved the lamb rack too. Suitable for both family and corporate luncheons!

Excellent food and service in this quiet restaurant tucked away in a corner of the third floor at Tanglin Mall. The dishes we tried over two separate visits were all excellent. Unlike many Thai restaurants in Singapore which tend to offer overseasoned dishes, the flavouring here was perfectly balanced and nothing was too sweet or salty. The menu offerings are also more interesting than what's usually found at other Thai restaurants. Dishes such as "Goong Sarong" (Spice-marinated golden-fried prawns wrapped in crispy filo pastry, served with pineapple and pickled cucumber salad), Nua Yanf Jim Jaew (Grilled Australian 300 days grain-fed beef tenderloin served with spicy tamarind sauce are delicious, and the Chor Muang appetiser is another stunning dish, with dumplings crafted into flower shapes coloured blue and stuffed with caramelised chicken, sweet turnip and peanut filling, and topped with coconut cream reduction. Service is professional and very pleasant and the decor is elegant and stylish. This is a gem of a place and my only hesitation about giving them a great review is that it might make the place more crowded and harder to get reservations!

It feels like this restaurant aspires to be the best Thai in Singapore. The prices and the ambiance tell that story; however, the service and food fall short. Now, both are quite good. It is just that they don't rise to the level of a great restaurant. The service issue was mostly related to the timing of the food presentation. We both ordered soup but they were brought out at different time. Then, the main course was brought out shortly after the appetizers. I don't think they were intending to rush us; just that they didn't plan the timing. My Thai girl friend said that some of the food was ok but lacked the usual spices for authenticity. The soups were quite good; however, the lobster in green sauce should have had more flavor and spice. I recommend this restaurant if you want to spend the money on a romantic evening. If you just want high quality, authentic Thai food, the Golden Mile Complex will serve that need.

Taste of food was sofisticated and well-balanced. We really enjoyed it. (If you really love spicy foods, you may as well ask them to make the taste spicier.) Servers in this restaurant were personable and solicitous. Though we were in a private dining room (without extra charges), they served dishes, plates for sharing and drinks timely except once that I needed to ask them to pour our guest more wine once. In addtion, they gave us recommendation of menu and promotion suitable for us. I personally feel that this restaurant is one of the top-notch Thai cuisine restaurants in Singapore, even though it's not located in a convenient area and we need to use rest rooms in the common area of Tanglin mall.

Dinner is a lot more expensive than lunch with mains at the high end of $20s and $30s. The atmosphere is fine dining, with table cloths and linen, with very comfortable tables and cushioned benches for 2 and the food is very nicely presented. There are enough service staff and they are well spoken and polite. The food was tasty and a cut above. The only disappointment was the dessert platter for $22 There were just 2each of 2 types of bite sized Thai desserts ( Durian cake and Red Ruby), 2 scoops of ice cream and a few pieces of melons. The desserts were not really remarkable enough to justify the high price.

Location is convenient Love the ambience as it’s not overly “fine dining” but comfortable enough with family and close friends. Food is served in perfect portion and the taste is not compromised with the correct tinge is spice, lime, or sweetness. Our server did an excellent job - he is one of those that comes without you knowing and does not interrupt conversations while bringing dishes or clearing empty plates. We came a few times prior to this and the experience is still great! Food standard is consistently good. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Staff were excellent especially Mary. They were attentive at all times and they gave my friends and I a very nice table at the corner. The food was flavourful and the prices were reasonable for a fine dining Thai restaurant. The only exception was the tom yum soup which at $12 for a small bowl would be considered on the pricey side. Will definitely return !
