The green curry with chicken was competent and had juicy pieces of thigh meat, and so was juicy as compared with most which tend to serve the curry with breast meat.
The kailan with roast pork was tasty from the salted roast pork. The chef made a good effort to shave off the older parts of the kailan and so was more crunchy than this variety is usually, and made for easier chewing. May be a little salty overall for some but fine if eaten with rice, speaking of which the olive rice was a nice combination of fluffy rice with cashews, lime bits, fresh shallots, and the might chilli padis. Remember to remove the chilli padis if you are not used to having your tongue on fire.
Desserts were disappointing since the dessert buffet spread was quite blah and they did not have the unusual tamarind sorbet, nor egg yolk/pandan ice cream which I wanted to try. My friend who settled for the mango sticky rice was happy enough with her choice but would have been happier if the mango was sweeter.
If anyone is looking for Thai food in a central location in Singapore and in a comfortable environment with pleasant service (they did bring the ladies a chair each for our respective handbags) Patara is worth a visit.
