Okay place

Even after reservation they tried to seat us in patio which was shady looking with dark curtains. Seriously not at all nice. Again waited for 30-45 minutes before getting a seat inside. Food was fine and so were drinks. Waiters could have been a bit more visible.

Third time at Straits. Twice on a works do, once for a personal visit. Visited twice this last trip. Once at the weekend while at my own and then annoyingly the next night on a works do. The first time a year ago was on a works night out and the venue was chosen. I remember the service as being... More

I have been to the one in Santana Row and the one in Burlingame many times and I love them both!. The food is fresh and yummy and the service is always top notch, specially in Santana Row.

We came here with a work group after a conference at the start of April. Everyone raved about the food they'd ordered. I got a vegetarian curry that was very tasty. The place itself was a bit chilly inside -- and we didn't realize it until about halfway through dinner but the doors were open and we were actually just... More

Singapore benefits from 3 different cuisines, and this place does justice to all of them. Service was very attentive (the chairs could be a bit more comfortable, but we chose to sit in the side patio - the inside tables have better chairs). We ordered a very authentic roti prata to start, and the chicken satay was also quite good.... More

We got the serving where they outline the course and you just eat away. Everything was very good in this place. We had all kinds of food coming, and I especially liked the thai themed foods with the peanut sauce. It was all very well done. It is kind of chilly at night, and we ate outside, but you can...

Had some spare time at lunch time. Stopped at Santa Row with intention to find something asian fusion for lunch. Just after admiring the Tesla shop nearby, passed Straits Cafe. First impression of the door gave idea the place is closed and opened only for happy hour at 3:00 pm. But luckily the door was open and we got a... More

Discovered this restaurant doing research on the internet. It peeked my interest and I have never tried Singaporean cuisine before. We arrived around 5:00 PM. Good thing we came early since we didn't have reservations. The waiter explained that the food is served family style and each dish is brought to the table as soon as it's ready. We each... More
