Great food, decor and service

Straits is a great place for dinner and HH. The décor is nice and modern with open kitchen and seats outdoor. The 3 of us had the roti prata, seafood vermicelli, Singaporean lobster (out of crab), curry chicken, seafood risotto. Every dish was delicious and bottle of wine on Sunday is 50% off... read more

This was my first visit to Straits so I was curious to see what experience I'd have. It started well; my party of four arrived on time and we were promptly seated. Our waitress came over and took our drink orders. It took around 10-15 minutes for them to arrive and, unfortunately, one of the drinks ( glass of red... More

We had a group dinner here, about 150 people and quite simply it was excellent. Canapes were amazing, the service amazing and the food served was delicious. You would expect compromise considering the size of the group but there was no compromise. Excellence all round. Have the Pad Thai!

The food was great and the service was excellent. The background music was too loud for normal conversation.

We went here with friends and had a great time. The service was great because they didn't rush you when you were talking and catching up with friends. The food was great and was fun to share all the dishes. The vino was awesome too as they have many choices. Great atmosphere and fun!

I've eaten at this restaurant several times during my business trips. They have great food; however, the dining room is a bit loud. Also, make sure to make reservations.

We have been to Burlingame before, but never have explored the town - this gem is part of a community that holds some awesome foodie finds - truly. We had the banana flower salad, sashimi, and green curry with brown rice and coconut rice - all good - all hit the spot! Spicy and/or tasty - all of these -... More

Happened to walk by on a Monday afternoon and hit happy hour at 3pm. $5 appetizers and $3 drafts and $5 wines. Great service in a nice atmosphere. The dinner menu looked great, but I had to leave to catch a plane. Good location on corner across from train depot and Burlingame trolley pick up stop.

Friendly, fast service with an attractive and interesting array of options in an inviting, energetic atmosphere. While visiting SFO on business, I shared a meal with my cousin who recommended the restaurant. We shared the tuna tower and fresh spring roll, then split the Straits Shaking Steak and the spicy dungeness crab. All four dishes were amazing. Bright clean flavors,... More
