We were visiting family and it was decided that it was easier to eat out than cook with a house full of babies and a mixed collection of adults. So my daughter suggested we try this place behind the supermarket. It was good. There were 8 of us and two prams. It was 6.30pm so we could get out before... More

A group of us recently visited Straits Kitchen for lunch just prior to Christmas. They have two menus - one for lunch and the other ala carte presumably for dinner. We opted for mixed starters and a selection of dishes to share banquet style. The staff were friendly and the restaurant full but the service was slow, waiting one hour... More

We ate here on a Sunday for lunch. There was no one see just our family. The waiter was friendly, but the food was average. The curry laksa was average not as coconutty as some other Malaysian restaurants. There was a lot of chicken pieces with fat and noodles, but not much of the other ingredients that make up this...

I had been told wonderful things about this restaurant by Malaysian friends so i was really looking forward to going with my husband. My meal was lovely, everything i had imagined but unfortunately i can't say the same of his. Disappointing and really overpriced for what he got . When we complained there was no response at all. We won't... More

A well appointed restaurant, with a great menu and service. All of ours 5 meals were large sizes and almost authentic. I suspect that they were toned down slightly for western taste, so make sure you ask for authentic or spicy versions, with a smile. Enjoy.

We booked this restaurant after the movies, and we were pleasantly surprised. We had a table of 11 and found the service to be prompt, informative and helpful. We decided on a banquet and the food was outstanding, especially the Chilli Prawns and the beef rendang . We will definitely be back and look forward to trying some of the... More

This is one of our favourite restaurants to visit, but unfortunately on this occasion we were very disappointed. Firstly, the restaurant was very busy with 2 large tables of 20+ people making service quite poorly. There definitely was not enough staff on the night to serve the whole restaurant which was very full. Secondly, the food has always been of... More

The food at the Straits is sensational. My husband and I have travelled around Malaysia quite a bit and love the Baba Nonya (mixture of Chinese and Malay flavours) food that we have had in Malacca. The Straits chef Teik Ann Goh does it wonderfully. We were at the restaurant with a friend on Saturday night they would have had... More
