Fusion food with a touch of Singapore

Visited with some friends. Quite similar to Sino (further down the street). Ambience is loud music and dim lighting like a club. Staffs are attentive and helpful. Food is pretty good and they feature Singapore styled chilli/black pepper crab, mee goreng (fried noodles). Worth trying.

We had the back room reserved for our sales meeting dinner. Service was outstanding and the great food kept being delivered all night. I would like to visit without the special occasion. Had a great time.

We returned to Straits after having several dinners here while visiting San Jose. it is always lively and delicious. We love the atmosphere as well as the service. The food is delicious and caters to many different palates. We'll be back this spring.

We had some time to kill while waiting for our son to get off work so we hit Straits during Happy Hour. The atmosphere is fun and contemporary. The food is really flavorful. It's not cheap with small plates (basically an appetizer) running $10-$12. But during Happy Hour selected food items were about $5. We had the garlic noodles and... More

The place has a great menu, nice seating outside alongside Santana Row was a plus. The staff is very helpful and suggest the dishes that you would definitely like. Being a veggie, I enjoyed SE Asian flavours.

The location along Santana Row is great and so was brunch. Bright clean ambiance with a nice hot and strong coffee. The Beef Hash with the Asian flavor was fantastic- perfectly flavored. The Crab Benedict was cooked to perfection and the hollandaise sauce was a great. I would definitely come back for dinner.

Take a seat outside, get a Tiger Beer and order anything on the menu, it tastes awesome. Being a veggie I had the veggie noodles and the corn fritters... both of which were awesome... Check it out !
