Just OK

Their Roti paratas are just average. The Oragami seabass is very good. The Randang beef was not good. The beef was very stringy, tough and fatty. The noodles were good. Not a good value for your money

I love Asian food. We come here couple times a month. We tried some different food on the menu, and always can find something we like. For example seafood green curry, garlic noodle, lemongrass chicken... Hostess here are lovely. They recognize me and since I eat with my big dog every time. As long as they can, they won't mind...

Stopped in on a Sunday night for dinner while visiting the area. We lived in Asia for nearly six years so it was very nice to see so many different types of Asian dishes with Thai, Chinese, Malay, Indian and Indonesian flavors. We started with Roti with curry dipping sauce, spring rolls, the duck sliders and the Singapore frites. I... More

I've eaten here many times. At night, it's one of those over the top loud places where you really almost can't hear what your date or dining companions are saying. Lunch is quieter. The service ranges from good to spotty. The thing that keeps me coming back is the food. It is consistently flavorful, and my recent visit confirmed that... More

Someone recommended Straits to us as we were traveling in the area. Traffic is a nightmare around the location as it is in a very busy (on Saturdays) mall. It was really nothing special and not worth a trip. If in the mall for shopping is a good choice. Our server tried to to a good job, but am guessing... More

We love the food! It's very flavorful and beautifully presented especially considering the more than reasonable prices. The only flaw is the service. We waited 20 minutes PAST our reservation time before getting a table and were never offered a drink, seat in the bar or an apology. They did give us free appetizers but it would have been nice...

We were a large group of people, the food was good, but the service was lousy. When the food was delivered to the table, the corresponding dishes were not placed properly, but served in the middle of the table instead, then each person would figure out if their food was there, very bad.

Went here on a Monday night and had the delicious seafood green curry paired with cocunut rice. It was a good portion with the right amount of heat. It turns out that Monday is all night happy hour. I wish I could of tried a lot of things on the happy hour menu but the curry filled me up. It... More
