My two teenage children and I took my husband to Straits for a Father's Day dinner. It was terrible! My husband and I each ordered a glass of wine ($12. and $15), and the pour was more like a tasting, maybe 3-4 ounces. We ordered our food, and my son received his entree (a $27. skirt steak) promptly, but the... More

I've never dined at a Singapore cuisine restaurant and I may say that this could be the best Pan Asian restaurant in Houston. The staff was great. The atmosphere was relaxing. And the food was delicious! A great place to eat. Plus it is in City Centre. You can't beat that.

Love eating in the outdoors cabanas here. The food is very fresh and flavoursome, I've enjoyed lunches and dinners here. There is a lovely room inside for parties but they have a rather restrictive system of sittings - 6-8.30 or 9pm onwards, neither of which is ideal.

I love Straits, love the decor, love their terrace, love the food (chicken lollipops) but I always come here primarily for their crispy chicken with the uberdelicious jalapeno sauce, just to die for. Do not miss the terrace outside of June-September, it is worth the trip just by itself, so comfortable.

Singapore cuisine is a mix of India, Malay, and Chinese. This restaurant is great. Try the pepper crabs.

Very impressed, food was very good, we had the dragon menu and everything was excellent, including the chili lobster. I also recommend the lichi martini! Our waitress was awesome and even the kitchen manager made sure our experience was excellent. Will be back soon. Highly recommended.

Went here for a friend's birthday. I had a little bit of everything ( one of the nice advantages to working so much is getting to buy whatever I want on the menu). Had the chicken lollipops and samosas for starters. Both are great. 4 portions each. Had a Caesar salad. Very good, but frustrating that they don't cut up... More

Great happy hour! When I go, I feel like I'm in California... It has a light beachy vibe. This is a different Asian fusion restaurant and while I think the prices outside happy hour are a little high, this place is really good, and fun with a group of friends to sit outside and enjoy!

The place was in a good location, let me talk about the food first, the menu had some interesting choices, got curious, I ordered the banana blossom salad, that was refreshing, presentation was excellent, I enjoyed that , the satay, both chicken, and beef were yummy. My son had the Singaporean noodles, I like that too. The only one that... More

We went to straits for New Years and the bouncer at the door, a very tall Asian man, was profiling and mostly letting Asians in. My fiancée at the time was appropriately dressed, wearing a button down shirt and nice jeans and dress shoes and he claimed he couldn't let him in because he was dressed appropriately. I was very...
