We had a group dinner with work colleagues. Menu was very nice, loads of variety and good creativity. Seating was too noisy for my taste Worth checking out

Don't let the trendy beautiful people enjoying trendy beautiful cocktails and food put you off. Straits has great food and is worth the visit. We sat outside and ordered the small plates of calamari with kaffir lime aioli, roti prata and duck sliders. It was delicious to eat, fun to share and fun to people watch.

The menu has a wide variety of dishes that are great to share. Very busy in the evening, make a reservation. It is located in classy Santana row. Enjoy a stroll after.

Eclectic fusion type menu, but the grilled meats were the highlight. Excellent short ribs too, Good wine list and selection of beer. Fast service. Great location, right in the middle of Santana Row.

The restaurant is in Santana Row, a place to see and to be seen. This restaurant is sexy from the hostess to their drinks and food and some clientele. The young hostess was dressed in a white skimpy lacy top, at the lounge were the young trust fund crowds in their designer summer dress and designer hang bags . At... More

Food seems to be Asian but their taste is definitely not as authentic; nonetheless during a holiday the smell and taste of Asian food certainly helps cure a little homesick disease....

Nice looking place right on Santana Row, and very lively. WE should have stuck to drinks. The fresh rolls were not bad, but he chicken satay was about the worse we ever had, and Shrimp Pad Thai was just a tasteless bowl of uninteresting noodles with flavoring--worse ever. Nice staff and probably a great place to drinks and do appetizer... More

Had a nice time here talking a break from hanging out on Santana Row with the wife. The bar tender was super friendly and made some nice drinks for the wife (basically a non drinker).
