Menu should be selected judiciously! Kong-pu chicken is a good choice. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The highlight of my first visit was the Mutton Rendang, dryish with the meat having reached almost a shredded consistency from long slow cooking, and redolent of lemongrass and kafir lime.

Straits - one of the best restaurants i have been to in Kolkata. The ambience,decor,food - they excel in all these aspects. Their curries n crabs are to die for. A must visit for people who want to experience a Malay/chinese/singaporean cuisine. The place is a Gastronomical delight.
