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.

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
