Stopped in on a warm evening for drinks and some light dinner. Thought you could get happy hour snacks and drink prices throughout the restaurant, but only in the bar, but that wasn't explained. Had chicken satay and calamari and fried rice. All pretty good, but with four drinks the bill was over $100. Yikes. Service was almost too attentive.... More

I absolutely enjoyed the Straits Spare Rib, they were excellent. Crispy Calamari were a very good option to share, really well cooked, and the Wok Fried Rice Noodle was also very good. Kudos to service most of all, prompt and efficient. I enjoyed to atmosphere, the place is huge but the tables are a very decent distance from each other... More

I tried this place with friends and my boyfriend for the first time and we really enjoyed the food so when my daughter came in town, i let her try the restaurant and for the the second time the food was awesome and went home with a happy tummy 😊. It's a little pricey so you can't really come here... More

The restaurant served a nice wine and some great fusion food. They serve Thai Chinese and Indian fusion. The service is good and the place is quite attractive

We had a business meal here with our client and the food was excellent. They set up a fixed menu for our party and there was a great selection of items they brought out. The flavors and plate presentation were fantastic.

Okay, I don't know why this place is any big deal. Food, way over priced. Average at best. Trendy with the young people, that's fine, but not my scene. I am older, but if you think you are in a cool place...you really aren't !

My wife and I had eaten at Straits Cafe in Palo Alto years ago. The manager said this Burlingame restaurant is owned by the same family. We were there on a Saturday night and we saw a number of families as well as couples and small groups. The crowd noise gives it a buzz. Food was interesting. I ordered sashimi,... More

The Malay Peninsula has some delicious food and Straits cafe is the real thing, they have earned my respect with a delicious meal there.The Prawn and Fuji Apple Salad was pristine combination of flavors that I keep dreaming of having again and again. The Indian, Chinese and Malay fusion cuisine was also carried out to the nice bar where I... More

Nicely designed restaurant in a good location in the main Burlingame restaurant area. Asian menu with plenty of options. The chicken curry and cocnut rice was good but not outstanding.

We had our Christmas dinner. Food was great! The garlic noodles is great! I love the chicken satay with peanut sauce. Beef, salmon and chicken curry was also good. Definitely recommended.
