Good Buffet

The buffet was set at 44 dollars per person. This inculded a variety of appetisers, entrees and desserts. It was great value for larger groups as the number of dishes that could be ordered were unlimited. I indulged by ordering one of everything. My personal favourites were the Tom Yang Talay, which was light and contained plenty of seafood, the lamb curry for entree and the dessert platter which offered a good range in sample size, a perfect way to end off the meal. I thought it was ideal that the chefs proportioned the dishes according to the number of people per table making it easy to share food.

had not been to patara for a while. the last post on patara was almost a year on 29.7.2014.

we decided to take advantage of the ongoing amex promotion which gave 1 person free or 33% discount for 3pax.
the tomyam tally (seafood) was chokeful of ingredients, prawns, scallops, sotong & sliced coconut. flavourful but we thought it was far too spicy this time.
thai stuffed chicken wings not my favourite but they were good standard.
we asked the chief waiter whether we should order the roast duck curry or belly pork curry. he recommended the later. it was a very good recommendation. the belly pork was very tender & the curry flavour was excellent.
we decided to skip the whole garoupa dish which we ordered every time & try something new. we picked the alaskan crab legs in yellow curry. it cost S$39++ same as the garoupa. we would have been much better off with the garoupa. this dish was very expensive with just about 5 crab leg sections. the yellow curry was too thin. to me it was not worth the price even with 33% discount.
patara’s olive rice was as perfect as ever. 
overall the cost came to S$105nett after 33% discount, which was quite fine for 5 dishes, though i was not much into the stuff chicken wing & the alaskan crab was a rip-off!

I would say that Patara serves pretty decent food for its buffet and given the price, it is definitely worth going for. However, service is quite tardy. It took 15min for the first dish to be served and when you order again, it takes about 30min. I guess they may be really short staffed in the kitchen. There were several hits and misses but I think it's alright as long as you order the correct stuff. Food seems to be not too oily here and that is something I like. If you really want to try the buffet, then please prepare to wait.

Worst dining experience in Singapore

It started with waiting for 15 minutes at the door in an half emply place - to being served after 45 minutes - to gettting bill before the main course - a glass house pour premium wine ( with no pricelist ) at 24 ++ - more than Ku De ta or any fancy bar in singapore - and then finally being told by Manager that its fine if you dont plan to come back

Dining in Singapore is becoming such a hit and miss - and this one joing a long list of places where we are not going again - try Thai express - much better food at 1/5th the price - we paid 165 dollars for 2 people for sunday lunch !

Just a short update!   Creative Eateries group of restaurants (Patara, Tajiyama, Shabuya etc) left amex palate earlier but had taken the opportunity of GSS (Great Singapore Sales) to sell 50% dining vouchers. Patara Fine Thia Cuisine is 1 of my favourite restaurants (when the price is right! haha) so i bought some more vouchers (S$300 worth for S$150 price) when i last dined there.   for our monthly (almost) G8 dinners, we have tried several italian, spanish, indian, french restaurants, so this time the guys took my recommendations to try out Patara on 29.7.2013.    we had a mixed appetizer – 2 prawns fritters, 2 spring rolls & 2 pouch dumplings – quite good.   second appetizer was a seafood salad.  this was really good – very generous helping of sweet plump scallops, grilled prawns & 2 salmon fillet, & very nice thai salad. must order!   the deep-fried whole garoupa with 3-flavoured sauce was excellent as always – crispy & fresh!    the tom yam talay was ‘lagi’ best here – full of scallop, prawns & sotong (squid) & suitably sour (see top photo & above left)   the roast duck curry was very lemak (lots of coconut milk) & tasty. the thick duck slices were nice but i would have preferred the ones with roasted skins – alas they don’t do it here these days.   the NZ beef steak panang curry was another great dish! forgot to ask for gravy to be provided separately but anyway gravy was very nice too, though maybe in smaller dips.   as always olive rice was here was 1 of the best! :-) forgot to take photo of the mango sticky rice dessert!   total dinner bill for 6pax 7 dishes+1 dessert+ S$78 white wine+1 iced tea was S$349=S$199 with Creative Eateries GSS (Great Singapore Sales) 50% vouchers. super deal right?

Bingsu ice shavings, sweet rice cakes and toasts invade the cafes here. Not typically offered in traditional Korean meals, desserts are served only during special occasions as refreshments, but in Singapore, the tables are turned
