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... read 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

Had dinner with my boyfriend here as suggested by one of the store clerks at a store we were shopping in. Ordered the sea bass and the fresh spring rolls. They were both delicious! Best fresh spring rolls I have ever had. Service wasn't so good. The servers were not attentive and our waiter asked us if he could have... More

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.
