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.

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!
