It takes a lot for me to give a seafood restaurant anything but a stellar review since I love seafood - but I just didn't have a great experience at 'Straits'. Me and my friend went to 'Straits' with 'Groupon' voucher for 2 Killer Seafood Fried Rice and 2 Mocktails. After ordering 2 Killer Seafood Fried Rice we asked for... More

Food, ambience and service was top notch. There was enough variety in the menu without being overly complex and lengthy. The taste was authentic and the serving sizes just right. We had the Nonya style chicken and mushrooms as starters (mouth watering) followed by the the mutton rendang and the Kung po chicken service with stamped rice (Divine). The staff... More

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. And the spicy Laksa, more like a reduction, creamy and coconutty and with a slight kick. Some of the other dishes were tweaked to please local palates which took... More

This place serves South East Asian cuisine in a small but tending towards fine dining in the heart of South Kolkata. I came to know about this from Groupon and was pleasantly surprised. Food is excellent and service is also very good. Has a car parking too. It is near the Kalighat temple and devotees who feel hungry after the... More
